Hmmmm, I've got an email Phae. This is should be interesting.
I'm sure you've gotten a hundred e-mails about this already, but just in case: http://blue.mmo-champion.com/2/14990442808-loatheb-moonkin-dps.html
Eyonix reads Gray Matter :-)
What that heck? :-/ ....... (I click the link)
(Heart) Graylo's blogs :DWhat???? :-O
A blue poster reads my blog. That is awesome!
Really it's not that surprising that the CMs and probably other Blizzard employees read WoW related blogs. Phae has over 2500 subscribers, Matticus isn't far behind, and I'm sure BBB is way up there also. There is no way blizzard could miss these excellent blogs.
However, I don't put myself into that category. I still think of Gray Matter as a fairly small blog. Its not well designed and polished like those I mentioned above (I should really switch to wordpress). I service a small (but growing) community that doesn't have a whole lot of resources. In turn I get to comment on an excellent game and have people respond in a way that is much more satisfying then posting in the WoW forums.
So, to think that one of my 130+ subscribers might be a blue poster blows my mind. I would have considered it wishful thinking to think that I was on their radar.
I think Phae put it best when she offered congratulations on her blog.
It is really exciting – for all of us – to think Blizzard might read some of the many fantastic class/spec-based blogs out there.I agree completely. It's amazing to think that we as bloggers and commenters might have a small impact on how Blizzard develops the game.
So great job to everyone that takes the time to write about and comment on their class/spec. It is a task with few tangible rewards, but the satisfaction you can get from helping your fellow players makes it all worth it. Plus, you never know who might be reading.
Special thanks are owed to Starkfist and all of the people that have promoted my blog across various places of the Internet.
Also want to point out that this is not a solo effort. I may be the one writing the posts, but the info is generated by the community. Thanks go out to Erdluf and Badeggplant for correcting my math. And thanks to all of the EJ and Moonkin Repository posters for being so helpful and providing so much information.
