Some changes are taking place. Inspired by Notch’s page, I’ve decided to publish some glimpses on the projects I’m working on. These will fall under “The World of b0b” as seen on the new menu above.The old “TFB” link has been removed, as they now have their own site and forum.
I’m still doing game reviews on the main page – at the moment the biggest news being that Minecraft has gone out of Beta and now carries a Version 1.0.0 tag! I’ve been playing it non-stop for the last few days and am loving the new balance, features and server stability. Your character feels less vulnerable these days, giving you a better chance to survive a night out in the rain.
In other news: I had a tape about 15 years ago. It was “The Simpsons Sing the Blues”. For the last 2 days one of the songs, every single word of a song that I haven’t heard in 15 years, has been stuck in my head. That and the theme to “The Fresh Prince”. Ugh…
This morning I noticed my blog has recieved its 500th hit. Yup, a measly 500 visits is not much, but considering I never expected more than 3 people to ever visit my blog it’s not bad. In the last 4-5 months I’ve had as much comments as the larger blogs get from a single post, I’ve recieved 10 spam comments, done a measly 16 posts and become totally bored with the game that started me blogging in the first place.
I still want to write about WoW, I still want to finish my book on the early history of pre-Warcraft 1 Azeroth. I’m still excited about the changes Cataclysm will bring to the game, more so than I was with The Burning Crusade or Wrath of the Lich King. Yeah I’ve had some awesome times in both TBC and early Wrath, but I feel that Cataclysm will bring the changes necessary to bring numbers back to my server and make it worthwhile to build up the reputation and experience of a guild.
Anyway, what I’m getting at is that with my small readerbase I’d like to continue along this journey, I’d like to continue blogging about my experiences in WoW, maybe not strategies, blue posts and specs like some of the bigger guys, but more about the social interactions, history and memories I’ve had sharing my ingame life with almost 500 guildies of past and present, random readers and one dedicated fan. I’d like some topic suggestions, some requests and links to bloggers with a similar taste so I may experience what they have experienced, share in their history and memories. Here’s to another 500 readers in the future and hopefully 500 posts like the big boys. Thanks @Angelya_au of Revive and Rejuvenate, @GamerGaz of the Mana Obscura , @jaedia of The Lazy Sniper, WeFlySpitfires, Stabby of Stabbed Up and of course Dristan!! for the follows, retweets, reads and comments. Yeah I missed some of you but those that I mentioned have done the most to inspire, advertise and help me along the way.
