Ah ha! It's day two, though as Terpinator pointed out so candidly to me last night - I really fail at the whole 'challenge' thing. So now I'm challenged to stay awake for 2000 hours. Though not all at once, or individually if I can get my guild to participate.
Why I started blogging
It's pretty simple to be honest, I like to talk. Ask Hydra from the Twisted Nether Blogcast - I was chatting up a storm on their show. I think I'd really like to find a permenant 'guest' spot somewhere.
Back to the blogging.
Back when I started, I was in a 25m guild doing Ulduar and Naxx. It wasn't fancy, but I had found myself (repeatedly) writing strats, answering questions about the different classes, guild rules, etc. So I thought hey - I read a lot of blogs, how hard can it be? The truth is, it's easy - to get started. Keeping a regular post schedule is a little tougher though.
The other reason I wanted to start weighing in with my own voice is I saw so many blog posts that were just - wrong. Or they weren't focused on the heroic end game, but how to gear your starting Paladin. Sure that's interesting, but I really want to know if that extra .05% haste is worth giving up .02% crit and 50 Spirit. Those are tough decisions that need more than a "Stack spirit till you die" response.
Why I keep blogging
I enjoy it. I don't have the writing flair that some do (looking at you Toby), or the graphical style to make it look good - but there's something about writing that actually just 'feels' good. Who knows. Maybe it just eats up time at work and that's why I like it.
