How best (if rather unoriginal) to start off a fresh blog with nothing other than an introduction?
To begin with, I am Consider of Laughing Skull, a Death Knight of some minor repute: Aside from proudly being a member of Deus Vox, one of the top guilds in the world, I’m best known for my work on the popular theorycrafting site Elitist Jerks. There I run the Unholy Death Knight DPS thread – not only is it one of the most popular on those forums, averaging over 15,000 views a day, it’s often complimented as the best organized and most informative.
Although you’ll undoubtedly catch me referencing my thread at various times, this blog won’t primarily be about theorycrafting. What would be the point of saying the same thing in two places?
Instead, I hope to focus on the other side of the game – subjective analysis and musings, along with personal background and advice. Ideally this blog will provide me with a platform less restrictive than EJ in which to ramble to my heart’s content about thoughts on Death Knights, hardcore raiding, and the game as a greater whole.
For the time being, I don’t intend to publicize this page. What would happen if I managed to start attracting readers only for me to decide a week later that this format of writing isn’t my type of thing? Once I have things formatted to my liking, a number of solid posts up, and the knowledge that I’ll keep at it for the foreseeable future… then I’ll bother to get this link out there through subtle means and hopefully readers will start trickling in. And if readers don’t start happening by? Then so be it; I find it as relaxing to ramble to myself as it is to ramble to others!
If you somehow manage to stumble upon this page before that point in time, then kudos. Enjoy, and hopefully things won’t be too chaotic while under construction!
For now, that’s about it. Off to test out some various themes, then to sleep.
Tomorrow look forward to a brief background on the actual guy behind the toon.
Until then, have a pleasant evening.
