[Pike bursts in and shoots fireworks from her Wolfslayer Sniper Rifle]
Having given this ol’ blog a test drive over the last week and a half, I feel ready to come back full-time. I have no idea how successful that will be, given that I’m pretty sure most of my original readership has disappeared into the nether, but hey, at least I like doing it, right?
So here’s the scoop:
First, I’ve set up a new theme! The old one, Mandigo, served me well for many years, but it no longer updates and is really buggy these days, so sadly it had to go. It’s been replaced by a default WordPress one, which isn’t terribly exciting, but on the plus side it looks really good on mobile phones which is what all the kids these days use to view blogs with – right? Anyways take a gander at it and tell me whatcha think. I wanted to keep the original “feel” as much as I could.
Secondly, let’s discuss the blog’s content. While I’m sure this will remain a hunter themed blog for at least the near future (seeing as hunters are – yes, still – basically all I play), I can’t guarantee whether I’ll be providing guides and that sort of thing yet. I’m still returning to this whole WoW thing and I don’t really know if I’m going to dip back into raiding or what. Who knows!
And while we’re on the subject of content – there will be non-WoW stuff here. Not terribly often; once a week or so. Partially because I do, as a matter of fact, play other games and I like talking about them. And partially because I think a lot of my older readers no longer play WoW but I want them to have stuff to read too.
Phew, does that cover it? Let’s say that covers it. ONWARD TO BLOGGING!
Want me to blog about something in specific? Leave a comment or tweet me! I’ll be glad to see what I can do.
So instead of constantly boring my friends on my personal journal (It’s over at LiveJournal) with the random things that happened to me on World of WarCraft, I’ve decided to start posting them here.
I guess a couple notes to start out with will be an adequate first post:
1.) The title… “Aspect of the Hare”… refers to two things. Firstly it refers to the “Aspects” that can be taken on by the hunter class to boost performance. Now, of course, there is no Aspect of the Hare in the game. But the hare is sort of my personal animal mascot… it has been for over ten years now, back when I first started showing up online on Redwall roleplaying boards. So yes, ’tis a nod to that.
2.) While we’re on the subject, I love hunters. It’s actually somewhat painful for me to play most other classes– though ‘locks, mages, and druids are all decently fun– but gosh, I’m a hunter. Half the time when I roll a new char I make it a hunter because I just don’t get tired of playing them. ^^
3.) I’m a bit of a nooblet. I didn’t start playing WoW until May 2007. So I’m not as chock-full of wisdom and experience as most other WoW-bloggers you’ll find. But that’s okay. This blog is mostly sort of a personal journal for WoW-things, rather than a commentary or teaching tool. However if you manage to find this journal to be a satisfactory commentary or teaching tool, that’s great too!
4.) I play WoW exclusively on Kubuntu Linux. Turns out you don’t need Windows or a Mac to play video games. ;] You just need a wee bit of computer knowledge and the ability to follow some simple directions. If you’re curious, I’ll point you in the direction of my other blog (specifically this post) and then direct you over to GetGnuLinux and MakeTheMove where you can get more information.
5.) Finally… if you have somehow stumbled across this blog and choose to read it for some reason… keep in mind that, as I said in point #3, this isn’t really supposed to be an in-depth commentary on World of WarCraft or anything… mostly it’s a personal journal chronicling my adventures in Azeroth which is open for anybody to read if they’re curious. I’m a casual as opposed to hardcore WarCrafter and having fun and exploring the game world is far more important to me than having the awesome gear. (Case in point: I play mainly on a roleplaying server.) So be kind to me ^^
