Tomorrow will mark a year of WoW blogging for me! I've been trying to come up with some fun ideas to do to involve people. Given the direction my blog has taken, I'd say something lore/speculation-related would fit the bill...but I think I'll hold off since I imagine people will be rather busy for the next few days! :P If you've got any interesting ideas though, feel free to leave a comment or suggestion! I might do a belated anniversary post a bit down the line.
It's been a very nice year to get into the WoW blog community! With Twitter becoming commonplace, it's amazing how close bloggers have gotten. Many people have alts on other servers to play with friends met through blogs, which is really cool to see.
If you've ever popped in to check out my ramblings, thanks! If you've ever left a comment or re-tweeted someone of mine in Twitter, also thanks! In addition, there's a few really nice blogger people I'd like to thank specifically:
Zelmaru, for being the first person to link to my fledgling blog. It was a great-confidence booster, Zel!
Anea, for starting the whole Thersa discussion, which led to me starting to really delve into storytelling/roleplaying ideas in WoW.
Vidyala and Aymee for some great avatar art! Vid's pic, Aym's pic, and one...special piece from Ayms.
And lastly, Angelya, Mania and Liala for putting on blog contests for me to win! :D
Cataclysm's only a few hours away! Whether you're trying for server-firsts, rolling a goblin or worgen, or just looking forward to exploring the new zones, remember to enjoy yourself! And if you're going to camp out for a midnight launch, awesome! Be warm! I did that for the Wii when it first came out (in winter) and I swore I'd never do it again. That being said, I think it's almost one of those things everyone needs to do at least once. ;)
I still haven't decided what I'll do in...just under 2 hours now! I'm very tempted to roll a Worgen, since I am INTENSELY curious about their story, having just finished Silverpine on the Horde side. But I also really want to check out the new zones!
I'm an abysmally slow leveler, though. I tend to get distracted and take screenshots of cool scenery, interesting enemies, funny-looking buildings, you name it. Or, I waste a lot of time just doing silly things for my own amusement. I leave you with this snapshot from my early leveling days as an example of what I mean.
Yes, I am sitting at that table for ABSOLUTELY NO REASON other than it made me laugh. THAT'S HOW I ROLL.
Happy Cataclysm day, everyone!
