Misdirected - The hunter's blog of 77% probability.

I thought of the Misdirected part during an instance. Misdirection is a spell that hunters use to shift their aggro gain to another memeber of the party.

"I wonder if...", is what I thought; and no one had the name yet.

The 77% probability came from a comic called Looking For Group. It chronicles the adventures of an undead warlock named Richard.

The two together just make me chuckle. And thats about my skill level.....

:D

Well, I was originally going to call it "Let's Level With Leafy!"

But by the time I got around to starting it, I was at the level cap (again).

I was originally going to write a Rogue blog called "Sinister Strike." I'm sure there are a half-dozen such; glad I decided to generalize with Kestrel's Aerie.

However, one of my daughters-in-law is working on a new banner for the site, and if it works out as we hope, the blog will become "The View From Kestrel's Aerie."

Honestly I don't think I had any other names in mind.

It went something like this for me... there I was at blogger, making my blog, and it asked me for a title. I thought "I want something kinda WoWy, and preferably kinda huntery, but also somewhat personal." The phrase "Aspect of the Hare" popped into my mind out of nowhere (the "hare" has long been my personal animal mascot, of sorts), and I was like "Hmm. That sounds pretty good. " *typeity-type*

And yeah the rest is history =P

I rather like my blog name, sometimes I feel that it might confuse people who are not aware of why I picked the hare animal, so for that reason I've put up an "About the blog page" where I explain it, and I link to it twice from the front page.

Here's a secret though, originally I didn't really plan on the blog being a hunter-oriented blog. I liked hunters but I just sort of wanted a thoughts-on-WoW-in-general blog. It has sort of evolved into a hunter blog over time, which works just fine for me!

I pretty much knew what my blog name was going to be too. When I first rolled a lock my friends and I joked about how I was constantly cutting myself for mana. Since then we've had a running gag about how warlocks are emo. After a while I took to hellfiring myself to death on the AH stairs in Ironforge whenever I was just idling in town, sometimes when I log out just so my body was there for everyone to see and wonder why/how the hell would an alliance die in IF? Oh, its just Pellegri. Eventually /emofire replaced /wrist and now it's stuck.

Ironically, Blog Azeroth or some variation was one of my ideas, but sounded too presumptuous, especially with the heat I took over All Things Azeroth being done by someone who is not a raider. *shrug* I am still not overly content with my title, but have yet to find a better one.

Before I came up with my "alter ego" I had the most annoying voice in my head for several days, telling me to name my blog "Twinker Bell" (I am not even a fan of Peter Pan or anything!^^).

I didn't feel like buying a domain apart from my personal site, so I was less creative and just added a subdomain for my WoW blog. The Elementalist seemed to describe what I wanted the blog to be about (us poor elemental shammies), although as I watch other blogs evolve I'm sure that my content will shift and change over time (and through a number of alts). I love so many of the blog names out there, though, and I'm jealous of the creativity!

I wanted something that would be non-class/race/etc, and selected "Eye of the Storm", but that was taken as a WP domain. Instead I just grabbed Typhoonandrew as its the name I've used everywhere online, and its distinct.

Then about 1.5 weeks later Blizzard announced the Eye of the Storm BG, and I felt like a right ass. "I had it first"......"sure buddy".

A Stab in the Dark just sort of popped up. After I finally made the decision to do the blog, I knew I would need a good name for it and teh Khol Abides, while an awesome nametag, doesn't really work as the title of a fiction blog.

Several other rogue-oriented names were tossed around in the jumble of my head, but they all escape me at the moment. For the most part, they were all trite and boring, though.

If I were an undead warrior my blog name would be "Dead on Arrival" (though I haven't checked to see if that's taken)

Originally, I totally had my heart set on Diablog, or Diablogue. I mean, it's a WoW roleplaying blog, it's all about talking to each other. Sadly, it's taken everywhere.

That said, I kind of like Blogatelle. It's nicely understated, but unique.

Luckily, the name I had in mind when I was thinking of starting my blog was available. Azeroth Now!, it caught my attention anyways.

Lol, some funny names other people come up with though, I just find it kind of cool Matticus is on here, which is kind of cool because I find inspiration from some of his posts. :oops:

For me, I was just looking through domain names for a site to hold all my tanking posts instead of have them sit on the guild forums. (especially since I left a couple guilds making those forums inaccessible to me)

When I saw TankingTips.com, I knew I had what I wanted. Catchy and to the point, I've never looked back since. (that being said, it's somewhat misleading since I only talk about Warriors)

I wanted CombatMedic at first when I was rolling as a Shockadin in PvP but it was taken at the time..

I soon discovered my all consuming addiction to Protection though and decided on CombatExpertise - Works better for a mix of tanking and PvP content I think.. I rarely heal these days anyway so 'medic' probably wouldnt have worked out so well :P

I remember sitting down at my PC at the office one day after I'd decided to actually start writing a blog, I knew I wanted to start writing from my perspective as a warrior player.

Pixelated Executioner popped into my head, and here we are, four months later.


Holy crap, four months later. :shock:
