Why did I start blogging?

Well I’ve always been a screenshot addict, filling folder after folder and I’ve always been avid reader of other blogs, both WoW related and otherwise. At first my intention was to keep a private on-line diary about my experiences playing WoW, just a repository of the stuff I was interested in along with somewhere to store my pictures. At the time I was in a guild with Seph and when she started blogging, I decided to give it a go too. For the first year or so, I  kept quiet, making sure that if I commented on anyone else’s blog, I didn’t use a link so that no one could track down my random musings. Then when I returned to raiding full time with my old guild, I decided to transfer my blog from Blogger to WordPress and “go public” so to speak. I finally got around to signing up with Blog Azeroth and posting actual comments as Erinys rather than some anonymous lurker.

Ultimately though, I blog because I love to write. I enjoy sharing bits and pieces of my life, both in-game and out with the wonderful people I’ve met through blogging and can’t imagine not doing it anymore.


There is just something about hanging out my verbal linen which appeals to me.

  1. I for one am ever grateful that you do write; it’s a challenging, risky and vulnerable act, and you do so with aplomb.

    • ❤ Thanks. Although possibly because I (fingers crossed) know that no one who knows me personally (other than my long suffering husband) reads it, I don't find it risky or challenging. I am however still waiting for the first person tell me I suck.

  2. I’m glad you did, I for two enjoy reading your verbal linen very much!

    • Ty! I think everyone needs a space to hang out their verbal linens, complete with written version of dodgy pink underwear and t-shirts with dubious slogans on them.
