I was thinking.. My blog is kinda like singing on a bus on a school trip.. Need to pass the time, you sing 100 bottles of beer on the wall, right? Well, maybe you don’t/didn’t, but I did. I don’t pretend that it is a good song, but I think the “annoying the adult on the bus” factor was the key there.. Well, I feel a little like I’ve been posting the same thing 500 times.. Yeah, I know, not really. And, no, I don’t feel that I need to change what I write or how I write. I just wonder, sometimes, how I got here.
I think I have posted in the past about why/how I started blogging. It was actually an attempt at RP, which I fail at or just can’t get interested in. I admire those who can craft great stories and characters and such, but I am just not that type of person I guess. Maybe I lose interest. Maybe I lack inspiration. Who knows?
Anyway, I also thought, at some point, “Well, maybe I should try writing ‘useful’ stuff like some of the other bloggers I enjoy reading. Something I know something about.” So, at some point I made a post about Hunter macros and then shot rotations. These posts did pretty well in hits, but that wasn’t really the point. I also tried reviews of some addons with which I am very familiar and I did a couple of those (even some tips on using some together). I also started a little meme, those don’t last long. But, those posts (including the macros and shot rotations) are quickly rendered obsolete by patches and game changes by Blizzard.
So, on this, the 500th post on Asleep at the WoW (originally known as Asleep at the Wheel), I have decided that I am going to keep things the way they are. I cannot lie and say I wouldn’t like more hits, more readers, but I can say that I don’t want to write with that being my sole purpose. I am not going anywhere, this site is my journal, my diary. It is a wonderful history of my adventures in the World of Warcraft. I don’t write creative fiction detailing my characters and their exploits, I write “this is what I did in a game” and I enjoy that.
I hope all of you will continue to read and continue to enjoy what I have to say. I will try to intersperse the “look at my phat lootz” posts with something of supposed quality here and there. I might even convince someone to write some guest posts about something more interesting… Hmm…
Once again, I appreciate all of you that stop by to keep me company in my little internet hole in the wall. Expect more of the same.. Listen to me and Bre on TNB when you can and stop by once in a while. Don’t forget to remind me your are here and don’t be afraid to put your opinions in a comment. (btw, I don’t moderate to deal with bad comments, just spam.. I am OCD about spam.. I know, I have addons for that, just deal with my eccentricities.. )
P.S.. Look at the last Screenshot!!! Yes! Finally got Heroic Oculus down.. Story will be told in the next TNB…
