Today, November the 1st, is my one-year blogiversary.
It was one year ago today that I posted a welcome and an introduction. Since then I’ve written thousands of words across 206 posts, I’ve received 1289 comments, and had over 200,000 pageviews. I hope the next year’s worth of content will prove as useful!
Happy blog day to [...]

Just FYI: the test realms are about to go down to update with a new patch. I’ll be issuing a revision of the Inscription guide a few hours after they’re back up; I don’t want to revise it now, only to find that I have to do it all again tomorrow.

I just wanted to take a moment to recommend a new blog on the scene, Hunters Rhok, by regular commenter – and much-valued guildy – Phyllixia. Phyl’s a great player and loves doing absurdly challenging things in-game, like soloing things that were never meant to be soloed. She’s a few posts in now, and her [...]

I’m out of town visiting family for a few days – I do have internet access, so I’ll be around to reply to comments and chat if anyone needs to get hold of me, but don’t expect any major posts from me in the next two or three days.
In the meantime, a piece of news [...]

Like (almost) every blogger, I eagerly watch my stats to see how my traffic is flowing, to see which posts are more popular and whether my readership is growing or falling. Until recently, though, my feed reader statistics had been relatively low.
I just checked again, for the first time in a while, and I have [...]

I hadn’t actually heard of Alltop until the WoW subsite launched and Matt posted about it, but now I’ve taken a look I like the concept. Alltop presents a selection of recent posts from a number of editor-selected blogs on an issue, allowing you to browse like you would at a magazine rack. It’s a [...]

I know not all of my readers want to be spoiled for Wrath of the Lich King, so I’m going to be posting any spoilery WotLK stuff behind a “read more” jump cut tag, and the first line will warn of spoilers (for those reading from a feed reader).
That’s all, carry on – and [...]

…very, very lucky!
Thanks to a kind and generous friend, I have a Wrath of the Lich King beta key in my hot little hands.
This isn’t going to become an All WotLK, All The Time blog, but you can definitely expect some beta content around these parts. ;-)

Okay, it’s been brought to my attention that the feed from Banana Shoulders often comes out as badly-parsed gibberish when viewed via LiveJournal’s internal aggregator. No-one else has reported a problem, but if you’re having issues with reading the Banana Shoulders feed, please let me know via the comments. In the meantime, I’ll try and [...]

I just wanted to recommend an excellent post from Anna at Too Many Annas: Herding Cats. It discusses what to do if you’re suddenly faced with having to play healing lead with little experience in the job.
It’s an excellent summary of the steps to go through when preparing to act as a healing strategist, and [...]
