Lately I’ve been thinking that some people may not know a few of the “ins and outs” to navigating my blog, so I thought I’d take this opportunity to let you know some of the things you might have missed since the move and added theme changes.
Firstly, by now you should hopefully all have:
- my new address – http://www.bubblesofmischief.com which comes with
- a new RSS feed – http://feeds.feedburner.com/BubblesOfMischief
Silver Dragons – If you’re looking for something specific in terms of rares there’s a page in the main menu dedicated to all rares in the game. I’ve almost completed all zones so far so if you’re looking for all the rares in Uldum, for example you can find it there.
Similarly, if you would like to know about some of the fun things in the game, you can find a lot of these (at least the ones I actually own), under the ‘Novelty Items’ page of the main menu.
Costumes – Another one of my favourite things to do in WoW is creating outfits, the more popular posts including various superheroes and professions. You’ll find a lot of my old transmog sets as well. All may be found under the top menu of the same name.
Pet Battles – (new for MIsts) This section contains a How-to guide, a table listing the strengths/weaknesses of pets, lists all the Pet Tamers on all continents as well as my popular Wild Pet series.
On the right hand side, you’ll see my sidebar. The tabbed module (under subscriptions) offers several widgets where you can switch between:
- Recent Posts
- Popular Posts
- Recent Comments
The tabbed module will also remember which tab you had last selected. The six most ‘recent posts’ are listed in case you missed a few along the way, since I have been known to post up to 3 or 4 times a day. Thankfully that’s not too often :P The same goes for the six most ‘popular posts’ in terms of comments. You have the option of backtracking further by using the ‘Show More’ option at the bottom.
The ‘Featured Content’ otherwise known as my interactive banner, generally showcases the six most popular items on the Blog (or highlights certain posts for whatever reason). These news items may or may not change too often.
I would like to encourage everyone who sends me a tweet about my blog post, etc on twitter to pls consider making that comment on the blog post itself. Mainly because tweets come and go very fast on Twitter so I would love to be able to see all the comments to a relevant post for as long as the blog is active.
If you’d like to add me through one of my social media accounts there are a couple of ways to do that as well.
- the interactive media buttons above the main menu bar go to my Twitter, Youtube and RSS feeds.
- the same thing can be found on the sidebar about halfway down the page – look for the ‘Join the Crowd’ module.
My ‘Wall of Fame’ is an easy way to reward my top commenters to the site by not only displaying the number of comments each lovely person has given but is also an easy way to connect back to them via a link to their blog if they have one (unless the gravatar hovercards are active).
Hope that helps for some of the functionality you may have missed in the past.
So thanks for visiting and see you around the blog :)
