“Were there multiple gods creating multiple universes before the Big Bang and we just ended up on this one?”

A Blog on the World of Warcraft
Today I have visitors from the US, Finland, Portugal, German, Norway and the Philippines. Yesterday it was Serbia, China, Canada, Japan … the list goes on and on.
Visitors find my page by search engines. They are searching on how to Heal as a Druid, the Elixir of the Rapid Mind, Fun Macros, our Legendary Ring and (have mercy) Draenor Pet Brawler. Goofy and serious topics; they all get found.
What strikes me the most and the hardest is that people are looking for information. My pages are from the point of view of a casual player. I am no expert. Yet, players are trying to find answers.
There is so much we don’t know about “how to” in the World of Warcraft. Players are frustrated, searching and wanting to know — how to play the game.
I believe that the mega-sites like Icy Veins and Wowhead do a good job. I also believe that they are the Walmarts of our WoW community and have pushed out the bloggers and they come up short on giving us the information we need — because they rely on players to give them information.
We need passionate players to write. We need bloggers who will report on their findings, discoveries and solutions. Writers have been kicked to the back room by Youtube and instant sensation players who have no staying power.
There is a need. It is evident by my little blog.
