20 Days of WoW Blogging Challenge: Day 07 – The reason behind your blog’s name

I’ve decided to take up the 20 Days of WoW Blogging Challenge by Saga of Spellbound to commemorate my 3 month anniversary at the end of January. I also figured it would be a good way to get the writing juices flowing and generate some content between the usual gold making posts. On with the show!

For those of you who have been reading my blog from the very beginning, I went through several name changes. I abandoned some due to the fact that they sounded stupid, or they were too similar to other blog’s names. Kathroman of Break the Bank helped me with many aspects of my blog, including the selection of the name. The Golden Crusade was chosen because of my focus on gold, and that my main is a paladin. Plus, it was kind of catchy.

The only problem is my domain doesn’t match the site name, because I’ve had this domain much longer than I’ve had this incarnation of the site (before this blog, it hosted files for my various projects, mostly TF2 related). I don’t plan on changing the URL because that screws up a lot of things like SEO and links and what not, plus I’m locked in one year contracts, it’s silly to have 2 domains running isn’t it?

This was a pretty short post, so I’ll supply you with a funny video!
