Wordpress

Two Years of Bubbles

18

Trust my WordPress Notification tab to remind me of the date even though I was thinking about it in the weeks leading up to it. Woot, two years of blogging. It feels like four at least… or maybe more!

When I look back on this past year, I’ve found that my video supplements have been a nice addition as I remember my first upload to YouTube. I wasn’t sure what to record at first but I wanted to do something tried and tested so I settled on a ‘How To’ solo the chess event in Karazhan. A week later, I created my first Trove of the Thunder King scenario (with added commentary). I must say it was a little more difficult than I expected playing and trying to be informative at the same time. I can see why a lot of people overlay their commentaries after the fact.

A month later, my Dread Ship Vazuvius video was featured on JudgeHype resulting in a rather large spike in blog traffic for several days.

Top posts

Not surprisingly my Battle Pet Tamer posts took up seven of my top eight spots with my Timeless Isle Rares post right in the middle.

Search terms

When I tried to look through my search terms for the year I couldn’t really see anything that obscure. It’s a shame there’s no filter for ‘funnyblogtraffic’ or similar. Engineering mounts still seem to be a popular topic while Aquaman was the Super of choice. A couple of treasure posts gained quite a lot of traffic together with players still wondering ‘how to get to vale of eternal blossoms’.

Referrals

Once again I have OrcisharmyknifeWoWWiki, WoWHeadWoW Roleplaygear and WoW Insider to thank for all the referrals they’ve given me. Oddly enough this was the same list as last year except that Rades has moved from second spot into first.

Thanks to all my readers and commenters, especially those I’ve met recently in-game.

The Price of a Sigil (or Three)

9

I had no intention of making another legendary cloak but I thought I may as well finish The Strength of One’s Foes while the sigils still had a chance to drop. Doing this more than once is not fun but when I noticed I was three away from completing the quest, I tried queuing for the first two sections of SoO. It was hard enough getting a fresh run at times but I persevered leaving me one short so tried my luck in an older raid. I queued for all four sections in the Throne of Thunder zoning into the Pinnacle of Storms and then Forgotten Depths.

As I jumped onto Ji-Kun’s platform, something unexpected happened.

Cat beard

That’s right, my pet landed right on my head! This may be old news for some but it’s only the second time I’ve taken my hunter in there so I wasn’t sure if this was a common thing or not. So after someone pulled the boss prematurely I was curious to see if I could recreate the effect.

Cat bearding warcraft style? …or what about this as a cat beard? LMAO!

Then again, I think I like my SpiritHood better.

After staring at Ji-Kun for an hour or so, I ended up being the last tauren AFKing. Looks like that last sigil will have to wait.
