Blogging Challenge Day 2: Why I Decided to Start a Blog

Day 2 of the 20 Day Blog Challenge is here! Today’s topic is why I decided to start a blog. I have a few reasons:

First, my guild is full of bloggers, some well known, others not as well known but still great reads. Reading their thoughts on certain issues had me champing at the bit to contribute myself.

Second, I attended this past Blizzcon and it left me inspired. While I originally went simply to meet guildmates and have a nice California vacation, I met many more people than I expected and left feeling connected to the community there in a way I haven’t felt in a while.

Third, I think I have a niche to fill. Certainly, there are good rogue bloggers out there, but I feel my experience with my rogue in a raiding environment is something others could learn from.

Fourth, I think blogging can be a good motivation to improve as a rogue. In order to write about certain topics, I need to research and fact check, and that leads to focusing on my own play. Am I exercising the advice I’m giving? Am I setting a good example? That focus keeps me sharp.

At this point, I’m happy with my decision to start the blog. I’ve made more friends, gotten better at my gameplay, and based on feedback I’ve gotten, helped some folks out. So I plan on blogging for a while to come.

I'm a rogue who likes to raid, guilded with Apotheosis on Eldre'Thalas. If you think I may have pumpkin headed you, it was actually @kurnmogh.
