I've been reading World of Warcraft blogs, probably near five years now.(?) Silently soaking in all the game knowledge from the theorycrafters, class specialists, long time gamers in general. The story writers, the humorous out-takes and cartoonists. Coupled with everyone's personal thoughts along the way on just about anything to do with the game, and even the game mixed with real life. There's the independant writers, team and guild writers, and even those who try to keep track of all the blogs available within the warcraft blog community. The list is rather abundant and bountiful, to say the least.
Although the list is rather large, I am truly thankful for all the creative, inspiring and captivating bloggers in the community. Over all my years of game time you've (albeit, without knowledge) helped me progress in game with your tips, stratagies and how-to's. You've laid the ground-work for me to become a reasonably successful player on many different characters. You've kept my spirits up when the game was going sour and pixil deaths were many. Your encouragement and support did not pass by unseen. Thank You!
I am also thankful for all the "fun" blogs, as I call them. I've come to know bloggers through their game art, cartoons and quite humorous "raid" graphs. This highly creative atmosphere extended to even more blogs as authors were writing stories with and about warcraft characters. Such wonderful stories which always had me looking for their continuing sagas and adventures each night. You've brightened many a night for me with your art and writings. Thank You!
Some say that all good things must come to an end, and to some extent I suppose there is truth to that, unfortunately. The WoW blogging community has certainly seen some great authors close their blog doors. I've seen a few of these passings, always with a certain amount of sadness within. I've read of others by way of bloggers who knew of them, and there was a sadness over what I missed without knowing. This is kind of a calm sadness though. It is out-weighed by the feelings of being thankful for the time I was able to enjoy thier writings. However long or short that time was, they were treasures I remember well. They came, they blogged, and left their mark. Thank You!
One semi-dark day way back when, the sun poked through the clouds and cast sparkles of dancing light on the tail end of some misty rain drops. I stumbled into this World of Warcraft community of bloggers, pitched a tent and made a home of it. I'm very thankful for that day. For through their blogs, I've come to know some really amazing people by way of their writings, their art, and their very special way of "giving." To each and every one, "Thank You!"
