The Great Blog Subscribe-a-thonAugust 14, 2008
I feel like being informed. I feel like getting to know the other bloggers of the WoW community. I feel like being overwhelmed.
So, I’ve just subscribed to almost every WoW (especially hunter) blog I could find that’s been updated a least a couple times in the last two weeks. Mostly found from links of the blogs I already read. I’m up to… 122 blogs!
That’s a crazy number! At least for me. Before today, I had about 10-15 WoW related blogs to read, maybe 25 blogs in all categories of my RSS reader. This is a big undertaking, but I’m going to see what I can learn. I’m hoping I can draw connections and inspiration from the creativity of others, since my creativity is… limited.
I don’t know how many updates there will be, but I have a feeling that when I get up in the morning tomorrow, I will be greeted with a real hugger-mugger Google Reader!
I’ve made a list of all the blogs I’ve subscribed to. It’s not organized by anything other than alphabet, but that’ll change. If you have a blog that’s not listed, or know one I should add to my extensive list, let me know! 🙂 I’m sure I’ve missed a few good ones.
If I find really informative or interesting posts and/or blogs, I’ll be sure to write about them.
I’ve already got something I’d like to talk about – Female Gamers. I have found more blogs with “Girl” or “Lady” or “Women” in the title, than I have blogs about Mages. I have also noticed that at least half of the bloggers I have subscribed to are females. I have nothing against female gamers (being one myself), but I would like to bring up the issue of why females feel it is necessary to focus on the fact that they are female, rather than just blogging about the game. The only “male” oriented blog I have found is WoW Dad, which isn’t really about being male, but about being a parent. But this is a topic for another day!!
