Achievement unlocked!


This morning I noticed my blog has recieved its 500th hit. Yup, a measly 500 visits is not much, but considering I never expected more than 3 people to ever visit my blog it’s not bad. In the last 4-5 months I’ve had as much comments as the larger blogs get from a single post, I’ve recieved 10 spam comments, done a measly 16 posts and become totally bored with the game that started me blogging in the first place.

I still want to write about WoW, I still want to finish my book on the early history of pre-Warcraft 1 Azeroth. I’m still excited about the changes Cataclysm will bring to the game, more so than I was with The Burning Crusade or Wrath of the Lich King. Yeah I’ve had some awesome times in both TBC and early Wrath, but I feel that Cataclysm will bring the changes necessary to bring numbers back to my server and make it worthwhile to build up the reputation and experience of a guild.

Anyway, what I’m getting at is that with my small readerbase I’d like to continue along this journey, I’d like to continue blogging about my experiences in WoW, maybe not strategies, blue posts and specs like some of the bigger guys, but more about the social interactions, history and memories I’ve had sharing my ingame life with almost 500 guildies of past and present, random readers and one dedicated fan. I’d like some topic suggestions, some requests and links to bloggers with a similar taste so I may experience what they have experienced, share in their history and memories. Here’s to another 500 readers in the future and hopefully 500 posts like the big boys. Thanks @Angelya_au of Revive and Rejuvenate, @GamerGaz of the Mana Obscura , @jaedia of The Lazy Sniper, WeFlySpitfires, Stabby of Stabbed Up and of course Dristan!! for the follows, retweets, reads and comments. Yeah I missed some of you but those that I mentioned have done the most to inspire, advertise and help me along the way.

    Congrats on the 500 😉

    I was the same as you and never expected many people to visit mine either but it’s surprising what you think could be a simple post can really get people looking, maybe not commenting (which is always nice) but just people being interested in what you have to say.

    I’ve not blogged much of late due to work being so busy but hopefully I can get back into it.

    I’ll be one that pops back so yes please keep up the blogging and I’m now gonna go have a read 😉

      Thanks mate. Comments is what makes everything worthwhile. I also don’t blog as often as I want to but I do what I can. Nice to see a returning face too!
