Thoughts and Blog
There was a saying that, 90% of the company opened will shut their door at its first year. I guess it goes true for blog as well, but in a much shorter span (one or two month I guess), so I was reserving strength for longevity, on the other hand, I would love to have one meaningful article per week, and some trivial report or idea in between.
Lucky or not, there was 4-5 blogs started on the very same topic in April, which form a nice community and reader awareness, on the other hand, it’s more-the-less harder to stand out in the mass.
I am not sure about the others, but I would be more focus on theory-crafting, that is, more detail about the reason behind their behavior rather than tactics articles, or business reports. The reasoning human behavior always subject to bias, since I can’t (and not have time to) find prove of them…. but hey, that’s what I am interested in
The 2-3 posts per week schedules I am trying to keep, so that I can had more time to tailor my idea before publishing. By the idea, I would have more and more idea around on my drafted post, and always had idea to work out. Sometimes there would be 2-3 weeks lag from the time the idea is formed and the post is created.
This will be my 39th post on Wow’s Econ. (Including Sunday Reports)
I didn’t write as frequent as Gevlon and Seth, but more-the-less like Larisa’s.
It would be nice if I can have a Bartender like Larisa or an Editor like BRK’s TJ.
And yet, this is a luxury dream for me…
Blog Downtime: We had some difficulties on the web server (The router actually). and my DNS seems failed to catch up the new ip address. Hopefully the router will behave itself now. Sorry for the downtime .
I did made couple of friends in the process and many interesting blogs.
I get to know more people along the way. while it’s not so challenging to think up an interesting topic once a week, since interesting thing happens all around us anyway, but it really takes time to think about it, solidify the thoughts and write it down… I appreciate that from all my fellow bloggers.
Similar to Seth, I would like to start different column here soon, I don’t know if I can stick with the Thur is The Food Chain thing, but I would try to…
The problem of sticking to the schedule is that, it takes me much time to clean up the article, and my leisure time is pretty random, so maybe I’ll miss one or two column date, if I can’t tidy up the articles on time.
I don’t know if it’s because I get busy on life/work, or because I draft most of my article while I am traveling (On Train) I am having difficulties of organizing my thought into well-structured article. While I am trying to make them clear and stay focus, sometimes a thought will get its own way and developed a totally different article. That’s a strange experience.
Oh, and I’ll start take parts in one of the Seth’s column as well, let see what we can do there…
the BLSH business is shrinking, and I am only selling the remaining stocks (can’t spot any sweet deal recently), that grant me about 100-200g per day.
I do gain more and more from the glyph business, buying the materials(Herbs), books (80-100g each) used up most of the revenue (I bought about 3-4 book a day) (Who said Education is cheap?), and I am heavily undercutting the others. Say, from auctioneer, the market price is 18-19g; I am willing to undercut it till 4-5g, which is 50% profit for the ink. (For the book of learning it yet, I need to sell 20-30 glyphs for the price of a book). I am listing 400-500 glyphs per day,
Subtracting the cost of the books and herbs, I still earn around 300-400 per day (which deduced I got 50-100 glyph sold every day). Pretty decent compare to the BLSH business. This may be not much compare to farming, but a good start for a profitable business.
