One year

It is hard to believe I have been at this for a full year now, the time sure has flown. Thank you all for joining me alone my stumbling journey.
I got into blogging at the urging of a guild mate who ironically no longer plays WoW or Blogs. I have to admit I was extremely reluctant at first. Reason being I know my own perfectionism and frankly until this guild mate started harping on me I really didn't know ANYTHING about blogs or the entire blogging community. It has been a wonderful and informative revelation.

When I started out I was just going to focus on things that I normally talked about on my guild's website since that was what had been the catalyst for all this. From there it has kinda evolved into just writing about whatever interests me...I was a good little blogger and have been SLOWLY working my way through the various posts about "what every blog should have". Some of those things I am still attempting to implement. (Yeah that About Me thingy....someday I might actually get one up there.) Others I dutifully added and then have NO CLUE how to utilize. (That hit counter tracker thing that I haven't looked at since I put it on.)

So far "writers block" has not been an issue, I have a TON of ideas, just have to keep fighting real life for time to write. I realized that I prefer to write my posts the day I am going to post them rather than in advance. While there ARE times I write ahead of time the majority of the time I find I end up just deleting the drafts. Doing a major renovation on your home while attempting to keep up a steady blogging schedule has been a challenge. I haven't been as happy with the over all out come as I can't dedicate as much time to them as I wish.

So what does the next year hold? Hopefully I will continue to improve. I will FINALLY register on the Twisted Nether...sometime anyway. Continue to tinker with the over all layout of the blog as I am not 100% satisfied with it. (I have a few more features I am considering once the renovations on the house are done.) Consider this an invitation to join me as we anxiously await Cataclysm and all that it has to offer.


  1. Grats on your year anniversary Daraia! :) Wishing you many more great posts ;)

  2. You have been by far the best blogger to come out of EM. :)

    In my opinion should be writing for, at the least (next opening you better apply).

    Grats on the year! Hear is to many more!

  3. Thanks a lot for the well wishes!

  4. Roger still blogs... just not on his "Savage Coast" blog
