Lovely ladies Z and Cinder are doing a blog challenge and anyone can join! Topic of week 23 is “Why do you blog about WoW?”. You can find other people’s posts on their website.
I’m finally doing a blog challenge again! I’m so behind! Sorry about that, I’ll try to keep up from now on.
So why do I blog? And why do I blog about WoW?
Last year, I was thinking about starting a blog and writing regularly. There was a number of reasons:
- Practise English. It’s not my first language and I should be getting better even when I’m out of school now.
- Keep a schedule. I’m very bad at keeping schedules and I thought that trying to blog regularly would help (it didn’t but I’m still hoping).
- Do something else than playing WoW (I know, irony..). Last year, playing WoW was all I did in my free time. I was enjoying it but I knew I should be doing something else too.
- Write! I used to write a lot. Short stories, fan fiction, movie scripts, poems (very bad poems), but mostly fan fiction.
I had a few ideas what my blog could be about: interesting people in my country’s history (mostly women and LGBQTIA+ people who often don’t get enough attention in our schools’ curriculums), my life with depression or WoW.
Then Z and Cinder started Z and Cinder’s Blog Challenge and it was so awesome, I just had to start a blog about WoW and join. I’m constantly behind and a lot of topics ended up half-written and not published yet but I’ll come back to them eventually.
This blog is mostly a diary of my character(s). It’s a place where I can write up my accomplishments of last week(s) and then look at them and feel like I managed to do something. Playing WoW can feel endless but if I make a list of things I’ve done, you can clearly see it wasn’t a waste of time (if you think pixels have some sort of worth, but you’re reading this WoW blog so you probably do).
I have a few projects in mind I’d like to do here (vegetarian leveling being one of them) but I need more time! Someone nerf adulting, please!
I’ve used this platform to get angry at the playerbase or talk about my hopes for Anduin not becoming just another huge man with huge muscles and huge weapon but I don’t want this blog to be all about my opinions. I also try to be positive but if something bugs me too much, I’ll write about it. If it’s too angry and ranty, I’ll add a disclaimer on the beginning because I understand not everyone wants to read negative posts.
I also enjoy you, my fellow bloogers and readers in our nice corner of the internet. I don’t comment often (I should!) but I enjoy reading your posts. And you all make such awesome screenshots! I should work on that.
