I am a lazy ass blogger. Want to know the real reason I am blogging right now?
I am putting off doing something else that I really don’t want to do. I should be writing an exam (which I have to have done by tomorrow – eeep!), but since I don’t want to do that, I am blogging. Not sure what about yet really, so many little thoughts running through my mind, and to be honest… I don’t know if any of them are particularly exciting!
First things first, I have decided to participate after all in the 31 Days to Building a Better Blog blahdeblahdeblah thing. Simply put – I need improving. I have no idea what the hell I am doing here at the moment, and I think this might help me refocus and work out what I want to do. Originally I wanted to write quite a bit about raiding as a Destruction lock. It was relevant back then – I raided, most everyone was Destruction, so we were all happy. Now, I don’t raid, every Warlock I run in to on my server is Demonology or some weird ass hybrid spec that isn’t Destruction (for the record, anything that ISN’T Destruction is weird to me), so that blows talking about that right out of the water. Sure, I could still do some theory crafting and DEEP INTENSE STUFF, but I rarely feel equipped for that at the end of the day.
However, I am not prepared to let this become a WoW journal. I suck at writing that stuff. Example:
On the weekend, we went into Hyjal. I ‘led’ the raid, ‘led’ here meaning I had the little raid leader icon above my head, my DBM announced stuff (after I remembered to turn it on to announce), and I kinda gave people the strats. To be honest, I didn’t even remember half of them. However, we didn’t wipe, people got achievements, and fun was had. I was very proud of everyone, especially on Archi.
… and that is all to be said. See? that’s just not exciting
So… I’m kinda at a loss. Let’s hope this 31 day program helps me! On that note, I best begin!
The first part of this is making an Elevator Pitch. All that is is a statement where you say what you’re all about in, oh, say 30 seconds. It’s called an Elevator Pitch because you have about the amount of time you would have if you ran into someone into an elevator. You don’t want to lose them when they jump off!
Now these, I am pretty familiar with. As a teacher, we need to do this every single lesson so that our students don’t go ‘Miss is talking crap again!’ and start snoozing. Unfortunately, it just isn’t so easy here. Why? Because (as I said previously) I don’t know what the hell I am doing! The first step to coming up with an Elevator Pitch is knowing what the blazes you are trying to do. I guess I am trying to achieve the following:
- First and foremost, entertain. Entertain you, entertain me, it’s all the same. This isn’t a serious ‘I am going to make you an awesomeleetplayerRAWR!’ blog. Hell no! In fact, reading this has the potential to make you worse (fair warning).
- Occasionally I would like to inform. This mainly happens when I rant.
- Keep myself entertained: screw you, internet, this is all about me. This is the Sar Show through and through.
OK, so now I need a way to say the above in an interesting, appealing way. Now, I am going to assume for the purposes of this that the person reading knows I am a WoW blog. They may or may not know that I am a Warlock, but they are definitely after a WoW Blog. So…
“My blog is a place where you can read about the hilarious mishaps of possibly the best person in the world… who also plays a Warlock”
OK, OK, so that might be a taaaaaad misleading. Accurate, but I think it shows me in a bad light. Perhaps a light which is a bit too revealing… *crawls back to the shadows*
Really, I think the best person to ask might be the person who wrote the about page. I don’t know how I will go keeping him to a brief statement, but threatening him with GBH should do the trick.
Destructive Reach is where that
cruel barbarianmaster of all that is awesome Saresa writes about her experiences of getting her butt handed to her on a platter pwninggetting her butt handed to her on a platter. Her writing is full of witty observations and fluffy bunnehsdoom and gloom.
OK, so that doesn’t sound appealing either! *shoves Dagpep back into his hole* Damn it, am I going to get a fail grade on day one?
