Welcome to my home on the Interwebs where I witter on about my hobby: World of Warcraft.
I’ve been blogging about Warcraft since 2008, with the first iteration of this Blog coming into being on Google’s Blogger platform in February 2009. On April 16th, 2016 I transferred to a WordPress-based system, mostly to allow better design and customisation. On March 12th, 2018, I took the decision to stop telling people I’m a Warcraft blogger and became a writer who enjoys playing this game instead. It’s been quite good to me during that time, as my stats from the old Blogger site attest:
The numbers have never really mattered, as it transpires. Now, I’m happy to do my own form of casual gameplay, known as #WarcraftFaffing
Output includes a number of specialist columns:
I’ve recently restarted play time on a US and an EU Server. That means the process of reorganising addons, UI and my place in two (reasonably) new Worlds. This heading will document that journey, but without names or specific detail about anyone except me. I’m not a big fan of drama, and certainly don’t intend to create any with the two group of new friends I’ve been lucky enough to make.
There will be a lot to do going forward, particularly in preparation for the upcoming Battle for Azeroth Expansion. You can find my posts on this subject under the Matters Arising header going forward.
You’ll see this graphic from time to time, particularly when there’s no real news or Warcraft topic of interest to discuss. I’ll be looking back on particular points in Azeroth’s history from my own point of view, remembering what I learnt in my journey, and offering insights into how things are a lot better than you seem to think they were ‘back then.’
Despite what you might think, this isn’t a place where you can check out whenever you want but can never leave. If you grasp what gaming really is about, and how it should only ever be a part of a full, rich and varied experience, you’ll get a lot more out of Azeroth and this site.
I hope you enjoy your stay.
