Another renewal


ZahbikeWordPress had been sending me reminder emails to renew my domain ect for a little while now and I was faced with the choice to abandon the custom URL or pay the fee.I’ve paid the fee again,  even though I’m not blogging,  I’m always hopeful I will find enough to say to start writing regularly again and I’m not prepared to let it go just yet.

For the first time in my playing history WOW hasn’t been my first gaming choice. I was distracted by Elder scrolls online and then a game called Unturned on steam, when World of Warships came out I got to a tier 7 and the game slowed down and I then  decided to have another crack at World of Tanks.  I’m currently playing Ark  and while the thrill of riding around on dinosaurs is wearing off,  I’m still as keen to keep them fed on berries and meat for me to log in to keep them alive and pick up the odd new dino  and make my bases bigger.  ( Snakes…  I hate  the snakes..  )

I’m staying guild-less in WOW.  The analogy  of raiding sometimes being a second job meant that I had to focus on one and some great real life opportunities also meant  a couple of career hops up and I am back managing a team again, with some renewed focus on career as a  priority.  I picked focusing on the job that paid the mortgage,  but sometimes temptation is hard to resist,  so it made sense to me at the time to walk away from potential distractions including a guild.   It was timely because Shadow was frustrating me  and  I wasn’t prepared to go heals in PVE again, even though from a progression success level,  I’ve done better when I am healing.

I am now healing PVP,  holy wasn’t great, so disc is awesome, even though sometimes I forget I’m supposed to be healing, and not chasing horde with a discus.  I want my Bloodthirsty title,   and I am still around 30k HK’s off.  Long term goals are good for motivation,  you can tackle it a little bit at a time.    I’ve played as Horde a couple of times, but the flipping of the familiar BG’s and the fact that I was fighting against my faction  wasn’t as fun as I thought it could be.

I also finally found 100k spare gold  ( well more concentrated saving/earning / AHing stuff and making  bags)  to buy myself the Allianz bike  the Champions Treadblade. Not many people are riding them,   and it matches my faction based  Transmog,

I’ve also kicked myself hard to focus also on the stuff that makes me happy,  and that is writing.   While blogging was always part of that,  creative writing my stories,  my novel ect..  has what has made me happy.   I took a writing class  to reinvigorate/inspire me, and I spent some annual leave happily writing and editing the novel.   It’s a little way off,   I should have done the hardest chapters first,  but I also submitted an 8k story somewhere  for a comp which would be a personal feather in the cap if they even seriously considered me.

So we will see,  I sometimes write blog posts in my head  and writing regularly is good,  and I want to form better habits.

Does anyone even read blogs anymore…..
