I would like to give thanks to the Newbie Blogger Initiative and everyone who has promoted the site on their blogs. IF YOU are a fellow new blogger like myself, check them out!
It just so happens that on the same day that I decided I wanted to start a new blog, I found out about NBI and it gave me that last boost of confidence I needed to give it a go! And /cheers to all the new bloggers. We CAN DO IT! =)
I guess you could say I am an MMORPG enthusiast ^_~ I used to consider myself a "hardcore" player but sadly (or fortunately lol) my life does not allow for insane amounts of gaming anymore. Because I am a new mother! @_@ And now a new blogger! And soon to be playing a new MMO!!
It's that hunched forward on the edge of your chair excitement... it's that "GOTTA book time off work to PLAY at release" anticipation... it's that "HONEY lets order in again tonight" infatuation...
Aaaahh how sweet it feels. I've been chasing that feeling through too many MMOs after that first one. And most have been disappointing. I've had a few tastes since, but they were short lived, a couple of months if I was lucky. Oh, except for GW1 and WoW. I did spend a pretty fun couple of years between the two (2006-2008). But it has been roughly 5 years since then of anti-climatic starts and failures of these games (AoC, FF14, LoTRO, RIFT, almost SWToR, and Warhammer) that turned me away from gaming for quite awhile. Instead I buried my disappointment in the usually gratifying world of reading! And there I have been for most of 2010, 2011 and 2012.
To date my list of /played is: AoC, EQ2, FFXI, FFXIV, GW1, LoTRO, RIFT, (almost SWToR but had a baby lol), Warhammer, WoW
My /reads to date are here if you are interested: HERE
Sooo... pls do share! What was the first MMO that enchanted YOU (did it influence your life like mine did)? Do you have a lengthy list of MMOs too? Are you still a resident of any of those worlds? AND ARE YOU GONNA PLAY GW2!!? ^_^
Before I go, I would like to share one of the best tips I found to starting a new blog:
"Compose at least 5-10 posts (even rough drafts) BEFORE starting your blog. This way you will have a few posts to publish right away and can save some for back up in case you are having a rough week or writers block or whatever else."
And so I am off to follow this great advice. On to articles #2 and up!
Thanks for reading! <See you again!>
