Really Busy

Posted in Blog tagged , , , , at 1:13 am by Andrea

Hello Peeps!

I dinged 77 on Pallylust last night! Woot! Time to do all of my exploration because that is some awesome and easy XP and of course, an achievement. I am continuing to work on my cooking and Kaluak Dailies and leveling. Also, we had a rather large Thanksgiving get together and I’ve been working to get my Christmas shopping done this weekend.

Finally I have been working on a HUGE post, featuring ALL of the Northrend Dailies, and it has become a far larger project then I anticipated. I’ve been working on it for four days already, and I’m only about half done. So please, stay with me while I finish this post for you all. I hope you enjoy it, and I’ll be finishing it and having it up asap.

After that post I intend to put one together featuring ALL of the cooking recipies in the game, making it easier for you to obtain them all for your achievement, and to help along to secure you the title of “Chef”.

Once that is finished I hope to get a page going featuring all of the dailies in the game… and eventually one dedicated to how to get achievements finished effiently. So as you can see, I’ve got a lot on my mind, and a lot on my plate. Please stay tuned.

My First Poll!

Posted in Blog tagged , , , , , , at 8:02 pm by Andrea

I don’t do polls often. Why not? I dunno… just don’t think about it really. But last night Hubby was checking out the new layout of the blog, and decided that he downright hated it. In fact, he likes the old one better. Now his opinion doesn’t matter (haha, but I still love him) but yours does! So vote away on your preference… and let me know… because this blog is for you, the reader.

Building Rapport

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , at 9:02 pm by Andrea

I had an assignment today for my Business Communications class that asked me to pick a reader that I had rapport with. As I did this assignment and discussed things that could help an author build rapport with their readers it occurred to me that I hadn’t really don’t much to build a relationship with my own readers. I haven’t really got a set topic I stick to, as I like to write about just about everything, just as much as I love to play all of my alts. I also haven’t really said too much about myself personally, as usually, people don’t care that much about who you are as much as they care about what dirt you want to spill.

So here I am, wondering what is it that brings back those few readers I have the seem to check in on me daily. I wonder what thing I have in common with my readers that keeps their interest perked. Could it be the multiboxing? Perhaps that I have ten thousand alts? Maybe, it has to do with that female thing. I don’t really know. What I do know is someone out there on the interwebs is actually reading my thoughts. My very random thoughts that I often don’t plan out before I put them down. I like the Fire, Ready, Aim! approach.

This is after all, a blog. It isn’t supposed to be organized. I’m not running a business here. I am not making any money in writing. I simply randomly blurt out whatever random thought comes to mind and then run with it. It’s like a free write, where the only corrections I make when I am done are to my spelling. So I suppose my rapport would be with those who take life as it comes. They are random, they don’t always care about the facts. I personally, run on emotion. It is my emotions that drive my opinions, and my opinions that drive this blog.

So to all you folks who actually read this mess, thank you. Thank you for understanding my randomness and not demanding that I set a tone, or a topic. I love having you and I love hearing from you. I hope that the same is true for you to me. So until next time,

Potatoes are awesome!
