Learning to walk


Well after playing WOW for a fairly long time and finally having the patience to stick with one char long enough to hit max level i thought....Hey i love reading peoples blogs, I love listening to WOW podcasts.

I can do that with time and Patience and something worth talking about.
So i thought to myself of a few different ideas i could go with this to start

Quote:
Things to talk about
------------------------

Things you have missed
-Little Missing little details in certain places
-Fun but unknown quests
-Remote locations
-Hang out places
-and events for your guilds to go and be undisturbed
WOTLK ti bids
Upcoming events.

Classes
Knowing your Role
Tips for soloing
Profession suggestions
Talents and what they do

A Warriors Walk
-A small side series of a recently made alt Orc Warrior i wish to tell his experiences and tales through Azeroth though his eyes


------------


Anyways heres a basic layout of just brainstorming nothing solid yet and yet to come up with a name or a good hosting place

I currently thinking of using Blogger or Word press or liv journal or whatever and if i like it... and growing attach to it i put some money in buying a domain name and add additions.

But let's not get ahead of ourselves.

A brief history of my WOW Experience

I started in early 2006 in that time i rolled a in a PVP server, i just left the starting area with my character and almost all day i get ganked and when i asked to help people they would not help me with anything even a group quest unless i paid 5 gold

So i thought of going the other way...RP something i know about, I re-rolled the same character a gnome mage, He did well i learned al ot from him had some really active people doing almost weekly events.

It was all good expect my guild they harass me to come back when i tied to leave and really would not lift a finger and the only way possible to advance in anyway was to kiss that Guild master ass!

So my friends i played with on a previous game said let's play on this server it was a RP/PVP server it was really amazing and the guild i had was one of the best i ever had i never seen so many max levels move out of the way to help young players and noobs with just anything we even had a Warrior class on how to tank as the warrior guild leader took us through deadmines.

All was welll and good and my friends suddenly dissappeared as well as a few guild members, and i was getting bored on playing around grinding all day with my 40 Lock

So i said screw it i quit.

Stayed away from WOW till Febuary of this year... from febuary to May i played again with the same friends on but this time i convinced them to give horde a try and we agreed so we played for 3 months then i had to leave for RL issues got back just this month and hit 70 with my Hunter.

The problem is now...i'm 70..what can i do....

I like dungeons...but my friends hate them
I'm not a big fan of PVP
I like to have a flying mount.

But what can i do in my spare time!, What would be fun for me and then it hit me!!

A Blog!! It's been forever since i wrote one regularly :D now just need a shove in the right direction...

I thought on hosting this or using Iweb to make my page for my blog but whatever works.

TTYL Send or private message to respond to this message or any tips to offer.

Hey Delanish,

About blog names... How about Learning to Walk? ;)
You could throw a bunchof stuff together, write it down, and see what
looks good. Or base something off your favorite characters.

Always Forward
Two Daggers and an Axe
Two Bows and a Fireball
Hunters and Priests, Together Again
Learn 2 Play
And 100s of other silly ideas.

Mines a general WoW blog and others range from including lots of non-WoW
stuff to class and raid specific. I think the more specific you get the more
energy you'll have to put into finding something to write about.

Don't worry if someone's already written about something. Write your
own version. Your own style and wording my be just what someone is looking for.

You could even start by detailing some of the experiences you mentioned
in your post. "How to Guild" comes to mind.

Just my 1 cent worth. :)

Greg

Try and make it individual. Thats not to say you only have to write on one topic, by any means, but try and write with a different viewpoint than everyone else.

As a poor example, if everyone is slagging off druids in arena for being easy to play then post about the intricacies of playing a druid up to gladiator rank. If everyone is posting on new warlock spells, try and revisit old ones.

By having a different standpoint you will make your blog stand out and it will spark off a lot of discussion rather than blending into the other 10983948 wow blogs out there.

Oh and good luck :)

What type of reference are you looking for? There's a basic primer to setting up your own blog over at Resto4Life.com if that's what you're looking for.

Best of luck!

Well started my blog not happy with it so far i used blogger i'm working on a banner but it seems so far so bland so boring need to decorate it up and work on my thinking patterns when i'm writting i also just write whatever pops into my head at the time

I was thinking having a jot list ahead time as i type because once i start i go into a zone.

But i want it to be more easy to read and the site easy to navigate and look pretty.

I can draw my own stuff and scan in it that's not a problem. coloring may be a problem.

pm me if you want a link to my starting blog.
