New site is live!

June 26, 2010

My new site is now finally live and the transfer of all the posts, comments, etc went fairly smooth. You may now find me on MisGuilded . For those of you that have linked to me, please change linkage to the new site?
I’ll double-post for a while until I notice the traffic from the old site dying off.
Thanks for the support over the last 6 months!


Achievement unlocked!

May 18, 2010


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.

Taking one for the team.

March 10, 2010

Last night worked out perfectly.
I really wasn’t feeling up to raiding. My stomach was cramping, I was exhausted and was just feeling generally down. Stacked on that, the healers were being their usual selves and showing up late. Thankfully we had just recruited a new warrior tank and our main paladin tank (who didn’t sign for the raid) showed up. He took charge of the raid, got everyone sorted out and running, and gave me the opportunity to add another 65% to my priest’s second-last level.
To make matters even better, Festergut died with very little effort and then they proceeded to get our first kill on Rotface. Considering Festergut has only been downed by us twice, and that with our most experienced group, this was a great night.
They then wiped a few times on Putricide before I logged off teamspeak and went to sleep, but it seems like some days you just have to take a step back and let things handle themselves.

Yeah I know, rubbish and short post for today, but I’m still feeling a bit worse for wear. Just one and a half weeks till I go on leave and I can get back into the swing of things.


Oh wow, on my worst blog day I’ve received the best response ever. 500% more visitors than on any day in my blogging history! Thanks readers, I’ll try to keep low writing standards as this seems to have the best effect :p
