It’s been 10 years

10 years ago I posted for the first time on this blog (back at the URL it had for 9.5 years).

I was still studying (but already working part-time) and in my spare time I was mostly playing WoW (in that years-long stretch where I didn’t play a lot of other games, sometimes none at all). Wrath of the Lich King was the current expansion and I was raiding. The Crusader’s Coliseum and Onyxia’s Lair had been released in the months before and Icecrown Citadel would hit live 2 months later. I posted about my latest Level 80 char (a shaman) that would go on to be the only toon that ever would see me healing heroic raid content.

I would stop blogging after 6 months for a 3 year hiatus. I’m not sure why, maybe because working full time changed something. I’m pretty sure I didn’t play and raid less. Then the blog would go on with a post every 1 or 2 weeks on average (with a few bursts of activity) from 2014 to 2018, when I cranked up the posts just before Blaugust and apparently I was more active since then – averaging more than one post per week. Not very prolific, but I’m not trying to build an audience here. Thanks to all of you who did and do read from time to time.

    1. Thank you ๐Ÿ™‚

      I started my first blog (non-gaming) shortly after getting internet access, so it’s been nearly 20 years already. To be honest I’d need a bit of time to even get the list of domains or URLs together now. ๐Ÿ˜›

  1. Big congratulations! *cheer*

    Though you made me realise that my own WoW blog turned ten earlier this year and I didn’t even realise it… will have to make a post about that.

    In the meantime: ten-year-club high-five!

  2. Achievement unlocked! A decade of blogging is a great accomplishment, and I bet it’s fun looking back over that time via the blog. It’s interesting to see you’re posting more now – the old adage of if you want to write, write, seems to be very true. Good luck with the next 10 years ๐Ÿ™‚
