Changing Directions

Last week, I had vocalized my desire to share my story about how World of Warcraft came into my life, (and why I couldn’t get it out of my life), on Twitter. A couple of my new Twitter friends voiced words of encouragement, so I told them I would write about it. I didn’t personally know these people, but I felt some sort of obligation to tell my story, yet again. I’ve told my story before, even on stage and in front of groups of people, but not quite in this way. I’ve always left the World of Warcraft part out.

I’m working on the final touches of my story now and will be posting it soon. I wanted to thank @DiscoPriest and @ShiftealRL for encouraging me to write it. I shed tears during the writing process and again each time I read over it. I felt better and better each time I cried. It was almost as if a tumor, stagnant inside of me for so long, was beginning to disintegrate. Microscopic pieces of it flowing out of me through my tears. I find it amazing that something as small as a Twitter reply can make such a big impact on someone’s life. Little do we know that it’s the little things we do that matter.

I wasn’t 100% passionate about my original intent with this website to provide the best of the best WoW resources, so I’ve decided to change directions with it. Sure, reviewing WoW sites and coming up with the best ones would have been useful. It may have saved someone a few seconds of their life because it would have directed them to relevant WoW sites to go to, but I want it to be bigger than that.

So now it’s my intent to help people find a balance between World of Warcraft and their life through this blog. I want to bring to light the personal side of the game. WoW isn’t just an addictive MMORPG. It has a positive carry-over into your Real life too. I’m looking forward to delving into that, among other things, through this blog.
