So I got kind of emotional yesterday and wrote a heartfelt post that has kind of started an idea for me. You can find that here:

http://killingemslowly.blogspot.com/2009/02/faith-hope-and-love.html

Long story short though, I've felt lately that in these difficult times, one of the things people seem to lack is hope. Yet one of the things we, as gamers and bloggers seem to have a lot of are hope-filled stories. How many amazing people have we met through this "silly game"? How many inspiring stories of personal strength outside of the game have we learned of BECAUSE of the game? I'm sure you have a story, and I ask you all to share them.

I want to try to link to a lot of them on my site and give people a section where they can show up and read about some happy stories on a bad day as only we, WoW bloggers, can relate. So, please share your story and stop by either here or at my site to let me know about it and I'll try and get you a link.

I know it may be silly and definitely un-warlocky, but man was I having a bad day yesterday, and so thankful when my blogging community helped me turn it around.

I've made kind of a follow up post today (tied with a run-of-the-mill addon plea for help), that is kind of my "call out" for this too if you're interested: http://killingemslowly.blogspot.com/2009/02/pawn-pleas-and-share-your-story.html

If nothing else, thanks for the thought, because as we all know: its the thought that counts :-).

I couldn't think of much to say myself, but nice post.

I have written my piece up, but it is not scheduled to be published until Monday (2/9), so I will add the link here once it publishes. :)

@ Spinks - Thanks, and I figure this is a topic one has to be sort of inspired to write... not everyone may be inspired right away. If you ever do come up with something, let me know. Personally, I just like hearing about the cool stories people have about how gaming has helped them. I feel that gamers are often one of the most misunderstood "subcultures" out there. It's such a diverse set of people that often get lumped into one static stereotype that is usually far from the actual picture. I can think of a certain South Park episode (which I find hilarious and entertaining even so) as a good example of what I'm talking about. It's just so much deeper than that.

Anyways, long story short, if people read this and think about a story at a later date, feel free to drop me a comment on my blog and I'll hit you up with a link.

Awesome post. You definitely have some major writing skillz. This has been one of the few posts I have have read all the way through. Most blog updates I just skim through to find something that interests me.

I have at least one story that I will post when I find the time to write it up. good topic.
