Happy Blogday to Me


A year ago today, on a whim, I decided to jump into the blogging community. 

Originally intended as more of a storehouse of the guides I wrote, it evolved beyond that. I was writing more about the game as a whole and of my adventures in it. When the original blog Be Nameless no longer seemed to fit I picked up stakes and moved over here to Dechion’s Place.

That was 192 posts ago.

A lot has been said, many lists have been compiled, many posts written, and many good friends made. A lot of them like to drop by and say hello (or tell me how wrong I am).

There have been 538 comments.

Most of them were positive. Even those that disagreed with me were well put together and not at all trollish.

 

Happy Blogday to Me

 

I have come a long way in the past year, and so has the game I write about. My perspectives on both the game and on my life outside of it have changed. For instance I can’t really see myself sitting down and writing a 2000 word post about picking out a name like I did not long after I started.

Starting…How did that happen… I blame Matticus. It’s all his fault, honest. He wrote a post (which I foolishly did not link in my reply) that asked the question “What is epic?”. I responded with a post about finding your challenges within the game instead of waiting for the next big raid to get patched in.

I had no idea where I was going to go from there, hell I still don’t. One thing I can say is I am enjoying the ride.

 

So for all of you who have read my babbling, thank you for taking this journey with me.

I wonder where we will find ourselves another year down the road.

Only time will tell.

 

Note: This is a bit different than the post I had originally written. Hopefully for the better.

Thanks Jess.

  3. Grats!
    I’m glad you’re sticking to it – I know there have been moments when you’ve thought about quitting…

    BTW: don’t forget to drop by the inn to pick up your cake! It comes with happiness and fireworks…

  4. Congratulations on the blogday! It requires a certain amount of persistence and some lack of reason to keep rambling your thoughts on a netpage, time and time again. In a way it’s very refreshing, but every now and then it feels like a burden.

    Keep on blogging, mate and hope to see your 5 years!

  7. Happy blogday! I started about a year ago myself, although it took me a while to ramp up my posting to something semi-regular. Keep up the good work you always have entertaining, or thought-provoking posts.

  8. Happy Bloggaversary! Glad something I said was actually useful…lol
