Well, I’m fixing up the place? What do you think? A throw pillow over there, new curtains on the walls, a nice stuffed dragon head over the fireplace. . . .
Umm, yeah, sure! haha
Okay, just kidding about the throw pillows. But, I really wanted to work on this blog today. I keep thinking that by maintaining a blog I’ll excercise my writing skills. I also fantasize about making a difference in the WoW community, lending a more centered voice to the din of hardcore raiders and teenagers who post crap like “LEEERRRROYYY Jenkins!” videos and think they are contributing. That’s right, I will smash all the stereotypes! I play a “kids” game? So what? I was role-playing in Dungeons and Dragons before most of the idiots in Trade Chat were even born! In fact, I gave birth to one of them. . .(Sorry, Al, you’re not an idiot, LOL)
Okay, hopping down off the table now. I’m a little wired today. But, I tend to get like that when I’m excited. I’m excited about my blog. I’m excited that I am creating an outlet for those essays that I have teasing around the corners of my brain. Here, I can post them free and clear, and not wait on someone to “approve” and accept them. (I’m looking at you, SEED.com!)
I wonder if anyone will read this blog and care. Probably not. How many thousands of the 12-million WoW gamers have blogs? And how many of them are read regularly? Not very many, I’m sure. I will link to some of my favorite ones, and hopefully if anyone reads this, they will send me links to try out too. I love reading good writing with a sense of humor and a little WoW theory-crafting mixed in.
After this I’ll probably log onto the game. I haven’t played my Paladin since mid-october, and it’s about time to get her ready for the expansion pack. The Cataclysm is coming, after all. With every in-game earthquake, I picture a very ticked off dragon struggling to break free and make my gaming life very interesting. That is, until the day in the very distant future where me and about 9 of my closest guild-mates (and maybe even the non-idiot boy I gave birth to) kill Deathwing and get a bright, shiny achievement for it. I can see it now–“Rezina the Dragonslayer” or some other catchy title. Yep, that will be a good day in the land of Azeroth.
And hopefully, when it happens, I’ll still be blogging, and I’ll tell you all about it.
