20 Days of WoW Blogging Challenge: Day 9
This is the ninth installment of the 20 Days of WoW Blogging Challenge.
Your First Post
Since I can’t just toss this out there without looking back a little bit, I’m going to make a few comments at the end. But first, that very first post:
This blog comes from all of the things I’ve been reading about World of Warcraft: what I have found lacking in the guides department; the joys and challenges I’ve faced as the leader of a tiny guild; and the musings of an alt addict.
My primary (main, if you must) toon is Shoryl. My guild is Higher Authority (US-Ysera), and at this moment in time, has a whopping 13 member accounts (49 member toons).
Shoryl is my second paladin, which has led to one of my personal memes: Everybody has a pally alt. Taoiseach was my first paladin, and the one who gets the memories of raiding in vanilla. There’s a story about that, but I’ll save it for another blog post.
I’ll be posting once a week, on Tuesdays (to give people something else WoW-related to read while we can’t get into the game). I plan to post on one of 3 rather broad topics each week:
- Instance Guides.
Yes, I know there are a lot of instance guides out there. But they lack information for people who don’t have the support of a great big guild behind them. What does that trash do? What’s the fastest way to get to the achievement? So I’ll be perusing lots of other guides and resources, and posting my own, with pictures!
- Life in a Tiny Guild.
Tiny guilds face some unique challenges, but also have some great benefits.
- A Perspective on Altitis.
There are plenty of closet altaholics out there. Altitis is serious business, and managing your altitis is important for your success in WoW.
Well, I’ve managed to hit on points 2 and 3 pretty well. I’ve tried a couple of different types of guides, but never seem to get back to them. Guides require research, and while I like doing a certain amount of research, I can’t do it at work any more, which means it has to eat into my WoW time. It makes me grumpy to have to research in my play time, so the guides have gone by the way-side, at least for now.
I really did enjoy putting together the Achievements by Zone guides, though. They’re more fun than the average guide. 🙂
I need to start including more pictures. I’d love to start a silver dragon gallery, as well as maybe chronicling some achievement hounding. But we’ll see how all that goes.
