Apparently my first blog post was exactly one year ago on this day. This surprises me because I felt like I started at this start of this semester. Maybe that's just when I had anything worth reading.
I suppose I should do an annual review.

Well Mr. Klepse... Klepaka... hm. Your rate of posting has gone of significantly over the last year, nearly 6x from the first month to the last (6 to 34). We've received no major complaints about declining quality except for a few letter from someone named Lapetes concerning your views on arenas which he summarizes as "ur a noob l2p."
In regard to the original purpose of this blog: that of having someplace to post ideas without spamming the forums, it has been a success. Your forum posting has gone down. In addition, it has been months since you did any forums with your warlock. On the other side, you've been
It appears a tiny psychiatrist in my brain has shot that voice with a tranquilizing dart.
So anyway, I made this blog because I noticed I had a lot that I wanted to say about lore, game balance, observations of in-game and forum social trends, etc. I realized I didn't want to be the type that spams the forums with a new thread (or three) every day, using it as my own blog. So, I made a blog. Brilliant thinking right?
There was something a little bit unexpected though: rather than ending up with isolated, unread posts in an empty nothingness, people seemed to actually read my blog and even comment on it. Even better, they weren't giving responses like I might get on the forums. No trolling or flaming. That struck me as pretty cool. I was excited to see that there existed online communities of sorts which were not tainted by the stupidity and rudeness that seem to plague so many forums.
I suppose I should thank you, the readers of this little piece of interweb, for that. While I may supply the posts, you're partially the reason for the posts. I could only do so much shouting into nothingness without even an echo.
With that in mind, what do people like or not like? Try to not select everything. But, please use whining or the opposite of whining in combination with the others, if for example you want me to whine more about PvP or say nice things about professions.
On a related note, you may have noticed that the Kael'thas post vanished. I nuked it because it somehow got out of order.
