Please bear in mind I only have so many hours per day! Personally I prefer to give you a mix of different news, guides, tips, ideas, and inspirations. Then, all different types of readers can find something interesting. If not in the latest post, then in the archives.
The Gold Queen is written by Alyzande. With many level 100s, 9 years expertise in making gold, 10 garrisons, 16k achievements, 1505 days played, and over 18m gold earned. The Gold Queen blog teaches you how to make gold playing World of Warcraft using ethical trading, auction house flipping, crafting, reselling snatch lists, and farming gold making.
I like a bit of everything, so lets hgo with 14 =)
Hey GQ. Been a wowhead since 09 and fell in love with the Ah. Saying that, I made my fortune in one way. FLIPPING!! MY server thinks I am nuts. I have one 85, a 60s DK outlands gathering and all the rest of my toons are bankers with their own guilds. Need the storage. My point is, I see so many sites that push leveling toons and making items. Where as in my case, with a 30g loan to my banker my flip career began. I take great pride and even boast in trade that I really don’t craft anything at all!!! I farm AH. I. Know this was long winded, but I would love to hear from ohers that did what I do. No professions and PROUD!! Visit US-Tanaris sometime. Medium server but all mine. 😉
#14, please! I like your mix of articles, and you have good judgement as to what might be interesting to your readers!
Oh! And, thanks for your hard work!
It’s been a while, I was one of your forum Moderators, Tryllyan. Do you have any thoughts into starting that up again? I would love to jump back into that roll, and help ya get things together. Send me an email and we can chat about it. 🙂
Hi mike, I’d love to have a forum but only if it actually provides something of value to readers! We can certainly chat through any ideas you have, though 🙂
I think the current mix of content is pretty good. The only two categories I’m unsure about are reviews of guides and summaries of info from other sites. I’ve been burned by guides a few times, and I suppose for new gold makers they can be nice, but I keep hoping to find something really new amd never do. Then again, it might be nice to know that before I’m tempted to purchase, so maybe reviews have a place. As for info from other sites, I keep up on that pretty well already amd prefer to see something here I haven’t seen there, but that’s just my opinion.
How about if I keep the reviews of other guides to 1) emails or 2) information about how I use a guide that I’ve bought and the bits that have worked for me. For example, http://www.thegoldqueen.com/screenshots/pipeline/ talking about how Massive Gold Blueprint pipelines, and what mine is and why it works.
I love the current format, so I will just say… don’t ever change! 😉
My Queen, I seek your golden wisdom. There are may other sites giving information on about every other facet of World of Warcraft. You are unique.
Please Me Lady, continue as you are, so I would say lovely number 14 would be the choice for moi.
Oh you are making me blush… and terrifying me with thoughts of High Treason! The word “queen” is illegal as a name in the UK.
The blog name came about when my son said “oh mummy mummy, you’re like the queen of gold making, you have to call your website that, you have to you have to” and I caved in. Sometimes I regret it as it can be seen as arrogance, but its not!
Chris asked on facebook
“How you personally ‘play’ the AH and what u think will be the big sellers prior to MoP? ;)”
I’m just adding this here so I don’t forget to sort him out!
I like the mix of posts that you do. Keep them coming. 🙂
I always post more at the Gold Queen blog when I’m meant to be busy working somewhere else, hehe
I would like a combination of addon guides, niches and tutorial on methods.
Very interested if you could something with market resetting and market cornering 🙂
Also now that I got a chance to say this: Thanks for the great tips and guides on your blog 🙂
Addons, niches, and market pwning for Mithrildar. Making notes.
I totally love the seasonal guides! Awesome work here at your blog! 🙂
Seasonal guides it is, then!
I like the mix, myself. I don’t see any need for you to necessarily change up your routine. Just my two cents, though! 🙂
Thanks Mushan. I have to stop and take stock sometimes of what I’m doing and writing about, to check I’m still in step with what peeps want!
Well, Alyzande, you’re the only gold-making site in my personal feed, and that’s been the case for quite a while now… so that says something, anyway! Your posts are both insightful and personable, with variety in subject. That works for me. 🙂
I’m not sure whether this is modesty, or my natural devil’s advocate speaking, however, I can’t resist replying and asking you to pleeeeeease read other blogs!
There are some lovely people out there in the blogiverse and twitterland, and sorting through the asshats can be a good skill to learn for sorting through /trade chat.
What if I get something super wrong? Or what if I forget something? The other day I did a video guide to Winterspring and I knew I’d left something out.. Lucky we have great readers who picked up the missing vendor.
Here are some of the blogs I read and support
Thank you for the compliment, I know it was meant as one, and I appreciate it, and hope I help
