This is my personal list of world of warcraft bloggers who have influenced me in my gold making and in my blog posts recently.
When I first started my blog over at thegoldqueen.blogspot.com I was responding to requests from server mates (hello <Devotion> at Steamwheedle Cartel EU!) who wanted to know my gold making methods. I had no idea how to post or what to post, and the first few posts were actually fairly private, simple celebrations for completing self-made achievements in gold making. I was reading the blog of a guild mate who was charting our PVE progression that influenced me to make that first post.
Over the last 6 months (has it really been that long) I began to surf from one gold-making blog to another, following the links on the blog roll and discovered not only a tight community of friends, but a group of quality writers, skilled gold makers, and bloggers who listened to the problems of their readers. I was privileged to be included on their bloglists as my writing style has developed and matured. For reasons why you should just go ahead and start a blog, even though you don’t think you’re a writer, see The Illuminated Mind and why it’s important to fail.
All the blogs I’ve listed are in Alphabetical order, because none is ‘better’ than another, they each offer a different perspective. I’ve also kept the list very short because it’s a list of bloggers who have influenced me personally. There are a growing number of gold blogs of constantly rising quality that are supportive of each other.
My blogroll outgrew the space available in my sidebar, so I made them their own resources page.
Another blogger who has invested in a move from blogspot to self-hosting, you can find his blog at http://anaalius.com/ Anaalius gets direct to the point with his posts, in a clean user-friendly website. I like that he explains the reasoning behind his strategies.
His must read posts are
Power Word Gold
Already reviewed PW:G because of the mind-dazzling quality of the posts, PW:G has since stepped up quantity as well. Here are two of my suggested posts to read:
Zoxy very recently stopped blogging, in a move that shocked us all. That doesn’t stop his blog being my favourite. This is quite possibly due to Zoxy being a Top Bloke in general. You can still access his archive at www.tradingwithzoxy.comÂ He probably hugely underestimates the extent to which he will be missed in the gold bloggers world.
We have a fantastic community and you are one of our greatest cheerleaders. Thanks TGQ!
I am speaking to a reader who told me he was really impressed with the quality of the blogs linked here, and spent 2 hours yesterday surfing around!
Thanks for the love GQ! You have a great list there, and there are a ton of other great blogs too! Check out any of our blogrolls (where’d yours go?) for sites not mentioned above!
