My last blog post was Christmas eve, which is over three weeks ago. As much as I don’t want to admit it, it is time for me to close down Honors Code.
What I wanted to do most tonight was just take this opportunity to say thank you.
If you’ve ever commented – Thank you!
If you’ve emailed me – Thank you!
If you’ve followed me on Twitter – Thank you!
If you invited me to be a guest on your Podcast – Thank you!
If you subscribed in a Reader – Thank you!
This is my 960th post, and I’ve been doing this just 4 months shy of 4 years. It has been a great learning experience and I’ve really enjoyed it. Truth be told, I really don’t want to shut the blog down, but the reality is, I can’t maintain any kind of posting schedule anymore. As some of you might know, less than a week after my last post, we welcomed our second child to planet Earth. I’ve also taken on a side project to purchase a laptop. Life is busier now. I really hate the time excuse, but I could find the time. Tonight sort of proves that. We always make time for what’s important to us. Unfortunately, blogging just doesn’t fit that criteria anymore.
I guess part of it is I don’t feel like I have much to say anymore. I’m not tanking anymore, although some of the PuG tanks I’ve met make me want to strap on the shield. Of course, even if I was tanking, they would still be rude, crude and socially unacceptable. We aren’t raiding yet (which is always great fodder), and the reputation and gearing grind doesn’t lend itself well to topics. Every night is basically running a random heroic after waiting in a really long queue praying for a good healer and a tank with a clue, hold the attitude, please, and watching Cloth and Strength gear drop. Rinse, lather, repeat.
Another factor is this blog came into existence to host the Paladin leveling guide I wrote. I’m still really proud of the fact that it got linked from Blizzard’s own Class Guide page. I knew once the Sundering happened, I wouldn’t be able to maintain it.
If I was going to blog, I’d rather blog about current events, like idiot Alabama Governors, and other fun topics. I feel like I have a different perspective than most people. I think I’d be difficult to pin down or label, but I’m aware enough to realize my self perception could be completely wrong.
But blogging and doing it well takes a commitment of time that I’m simply not able to give right now.
And I’ll answer the other question I’m sure is on your mind. Yes, I’m still playing WoW. You can find me on Altar of Storms (or watch the feed on the right as its updated with my characters achievements.)
Thank you so much for being a great audience and listening to me on days both good and bad.
Last one out turn out the lights.
