OK, last week I joined a group for WoW bloggers at the suggestion of another blogger that I happen to read. I thought it would help give me ideas to write about, and just help me feel better about the product I am putting out.
In fact, it made me feel worse. I read all these testimonials about how people started blogging and poof immediate readership. Poof, people were coming out of the woodwork to comment. Poof, wild women throwing themselves at the blogger's feet (OK, no one said that, but you get the idea).
That got me to thinking. My blog here doesn't seem to have a real focus or direction. I tend to pratter on about whatever comes to mind, making me just one more of the nameless unwashed masses of bloggers out there. Nothing makes me different. I'm a slightly boring, middle aged man playing a video game, and writing about it.
The more I thought on it, the more depressed I got. Then, this morning as I seriously thought about writing my goodbye post I remembered something. When I started this whole blog thing I did it for me. I wanted somewhere to write down my opinions, my thoughts, my suggestions, my ideas. I didn't write this for the fortune and fame it would bring me. Sheesh!
So you know what, I found my voice, I found the direction of my blog! WoW I am lost is a blog about World of Warcraft from a slightly boring, middle aged gamer.
