The Flow of Things

Just popped in to write up a quick post before Naxx10. I've been trying to find my groove lately with this whole blogging endeavour, and I've realized a few things as I was reading around the nets.

My post ideas, the ones that I think have the most value, are long, involved, and written like graduate-level thesis papers. I'm a theorycrafter at heart, and that was influencing both my post length and content. I was tending to write posts that were better used being posted on Elitist Jerks. While theorycrafting is great, I need to learn to separate the two. I'm starting to get a feel for what content I want on my blog. The really intense theorycraft is best posted on EJ, and all the things that would get me banned from EJ (lol insane mods much?) I can post about all the fun stuff I do in the game that has no real place on EJ.

I think I'm basically going to use my blog as a way to reflect on my experiences ingame. I've been reading Anea's blog over here (go read it!) and I like her style. I'm going to save the intense, consuming theorycraft posts for Elitist Jerks, and have fun over here. I think it'll be good for me.

(All said and done, please don't hesistate to ask me for help with math-intensive theorycraft. It's what I do best and I'm more than willing to crunch numbers for anyone who needs it.)

Time to go tank me some Naxx10. See you all in Azeroth!


  1. The first thing that came to my mind when I read that is that you should have whatever it is that pleases you on your blog - it is YOUR blog, and there certainly is an audience and a place for theorycrafting.

    But as you can also see from my blog, I'm not one for theorycrafting at all. My eyes glaze over at the mention and I probably wouldn't read it - it's just not my cup of tea.

    So, if you think that your thesis papers belong on EJ, so be it ;) I'm more than happy to read your stuff here!

  2. (Blogger cut off my comment, dammit)

    *note - some things that you got me thinking about I started typing out, but it would have turned into a novel - I'll write a whole post about it on my blog, link you and let you know*

    Thank you for the plug! I'm glad that my posts resonate with some of my readers.
