The Newbie Blogger Initiative

Posted in MMORPG, Writing with tags , , on May 1, 2012 by theerivs

It’s May 1st, and thus begins the NEWBIE BLOGGER INITIATIVE…..

We did this once ago, Syp was in charge of it then, and I helped as well, because if there was no Syp, there would be no game blogger Rivs…

Let’s start at the beginning….I was actually a blogger before I became a game blogger. I would write personal stuff, and toss in a game post here and there. Then I started reading game bloggers like Syp, Tobold, and Spicy Tuna.  I thought I could do that. I played games for a long, long time. I thought man there are ALOT of WoW blogs, and a new exciting game was on the horizon. Warhammer Online, despite Tobold’s advice I made a blog about that game, or more specifically my class of chose…Way of the Chosen.

Those were great days indeed, and then like now, Syp had an idea to get more people to blog, and join us in the blogosphere. I stood behind him then, and I stand behind him now.

If your interested in starting a blog, I think you should head over to the Newbie Blogger Initiative Forums, and register and get started.  If you have any questions personally feel free to ask me either in my comments of these posts, or email cc0926 (at) gmail (dot) com.  My door is always open.

Check out Syps post for more info, and look-see who else is in this NBI as sponsors. Some great writers, alas I am not a great writer. Why do I blog then if I suck at writing?  I feel that my voice offers something the others do not. I think I am the red light district of the blogosphere. Sure the quality isn’t all that, but you just might get entertained for a few minutes. I’ve been doing this for nearly 4 years now, and I think if I can do it…a slug drunk on a bottle of Jack can do it.

And who knows one day you might be on my blogroll, on the Honor Roll.

Have Tank, Will Travel.

First off I want to thank Syp of Bio-Break for allowing me to do a guest post, to finish up his Blogsplosion 2011, some great posts from my fellow bloggers, here’s mine. It was fun doing it, and I love how Syp introduced me, but he should have used a more…erm..provocotive pic. So I decided to post one for him. Though Luke Perry is some nice…wait…nevermind.

My Pallie Tank is geared to Ilevel 349, I do have some cheater PvP pieces, helm, and shoulders to be exact, but ofr the most part I believe I’m ready to do heroics now. I just hope I am not full of fail, though part of me feels I should work on my mage now too. My guild is pretty set with it’s raiders, and I don’t really need to rush on anything. Though my Pally has a ton of work to do besides gear, like doing Hyjal quests to unlock Molten Front, which is chaffing my arse.

My mage also I’m not feeling the Worgen, I might switch him back to Human, because I really don’t like the way Worgen’s move around. When they run/walk they seem to be lumbering around. We’ll see.

People have alot of WoW hate right now, you know I’m having a decent enough time at it, at least it should keep me occupied until SW:TOR comes out.
