Well – I’ve been playing WoW for 9 months now and during that time I’ve written a few posts in my other blog. I’ve covered the long suffering of my wife, the fascinating world of in-game economies, and how fast and vast some of these immersive online communities are growing
Things in-game have taken a turn for the ‘more involved’ and so I felt that it’s time to separate out my and create a dedicated (and themed) blog on Blizzards brilliant World of Warcraft.
Edit 18/02/2008: Hey, look… this hasn’t turned out to be a happening thing, so I’ve moved the old blog content back into Rob the Geek. These things happen…
Some of you will be yawning and thinking â€˜yadda yadda yadda, another Warcraft blogâ€™ and youâ€™re right â€“ thatâ€™s precisely what this is, you can probably click away to another corner of the web if you were looking for something special as my intentions for this blog are somewhat selfish, Iâ€™m planning to use this as a musings point, and to capture some of the interesting things I learn in my in-game and real world research into the World of Warcraft.
First things first, I need to tweak up this theme so itâ€™s not soâ€¦ â€˜Hogitâ€™, itâ€™s a great theme, but personalised for the original author â€“ whoâ€™s nicely written blog (in character) you can find here. The theme you can grab off this link at sourceforge.
If youâ€™re going to personalise the template for your use, you will also need to find the Warcraft webmaster files and change the â€˜Hogits Storyâ€™ logo (logo.gif) to something more reflective of you (or your character(s)). Other things which need changing to personalise the theme are the post-author-*.gif and the sig-*.gif graphics. I intend to do another post on this later once I’ve found the base graphics I need and had a look at the template code.
So anyway, that’s about it for my first post in this blog, I’ll introduce my characters and do some posts around what I’ve found useful in the future.
* Skilling Up
* Gameplay / Community
* Annoyances (bloody bots!!)
* Mods / Addons
* Rolling your own website
Righto, that’s enough of a top of mind list to write about in future posts. Until next time…
