A Tribute to TripleB!

February 13, 2015

I had originally planned a very different post, with my first major post since I came back going up today.  But it didn’t seem right, as this is the last day for someone who gave me one hell of a jumpstart when I first started blogging.

Way back in Jan 2010 Big Bear Butt linked this blog and I had a traffic explosion.  I was just starting out at the time and I was amazed at all the people reading all of a sudden.  Unfortunately, like the kitty I am, I got distracted by something shiny multiple times and lost quite a bit of traffic over the years.  But I never forgot about that help he gave me when first starting out.

But not just that TripleB is a great guy.  I remember a slow night during MoP when I needed help summoning my wife and he was the only one on my f-list playing Ally side at the time and he popped over to help me out, even though we don’t talk a lot.

While you have moved on from your theorycrafting ways when I first started reading, I have really enjoyed your humor over the years and seen so many reflections of my own life as I raise my two geeklings.  (One is already a Geek-teen.)  You made us laugh.  You tugged at our heartstrings in tender moments.  And you made me want want a goldfish hunter pet.

I don’t know why you are ending you blog, but thank you.

Thank you for helping out this little blog so many years ago.

Thank you for helping me out when I need to summon my wife.

Thank you for the joy your writing has brought to me over the years and I’m sure there are many others who feel the same way.

If you are still playing, one of these nights I’m actually going to have the free time to take you up on a run you’re putting up in Battle.net.

My best of wishes wherever this journey takes you and thank you for letting us ride along for a while.

A Kitty/Bear, A Plan, A Blog, Feral Instincts

February 10, 2015

Alrighty all, so after mulling it around through the weekend, I decided for a plan for the blog.  I am going to try and have big article on Fridays along with other randomness interspersed.  I also thing I am going to mull on a weekly achievement article, but let me get the Friday Druid one rolling first and see how I fit it in.  Welcome to all the new folks!  I hope you enjoy!

The Time Has Come for a Regeneration!

February 6, 2015

The most amazing thing has happened in the last week, we saw the end of a WoW icon over at WoW Insider.  It was one of the first sites with WoW content I regularly followed.  I was saddened by this, as was much of the community.  But the wonderful folks there decided that they didn’t want to give up what they love and have created BlizzardWatch.  BlizzardWatch is a crowd funded project, if you’d like to be a supporter, you can set up a recurring donation here.

But this post isn’t an ad for BlizzardWatch.  After watching the community come together for something that meant so much to them, I realized how much I miss writing about WoW.  I’ve decided after yet another extended absence from the blog, I’m going to resurrect it…again.

But unlike previously, I’m going to set myself a schedule.  I will post that schedule when I figure out what the heck it is going to be, so hopefully ya’ll will give me a hard time if I’m slacking again.  I need to definitely work on some admin stuff on the site.  I think my plan is going to be a weekly feature along with random posts when they come to mind.

As always, I would love to create a conversation here, so don’t be afraid to comment.  We need more content and engagement for the only spec that “Complains when they get a buff!”  But as you continue your journeys through the World of Warcraft, always remember these wise words:

Posts, posts, posts…

April 4, 2013

So, posts in the pipeline:

  • The honor gearing of a PvP Feral from 31 – 59.
  • To be followed by the honor gearing of a PvP Feral from 60 – 69, 70 -79 & 80 – 84.
  • There’s more cute kid stuff, that is rattling around, but isn’t coming into words currently.
  • I want to go see what I can solo at 90.  Granted, that means I have to get to 90 first…hmmm, mebbe I should grab FRAPs or something for that.
  • How Mr. No-Alts is now up to 3 and is considering more.
  • And now that I’m trying to get the ideas out, they are hiding from me.

This is a work in progress, will update as my brain lets me.  Feel free to splatter the comments with any ideas you might have that you think would be good to see in the blog, a brainstorming session, if you will.

But I leave you with this.  My wife and I are leveling two Panderan Monks.  I’m trying to learn to heal, so I’m playing Mistweaver and she’s going to attempt Tanking with a brewmaster.

She keeps telling me that I need to stop pulling.

But, Honey, I’m currently a bear!  That means I’m supposed to pull! 😉
