Guest Blogger – BigJimm!
Thanks to advertisement among the blogosphere, we finally got a guest blogger here!
I started looking for guest poster / co-author from the very first day. This was a small project of mine from the start. I know I am not as enthusiastic as Seth in many aspects, That’s why I always posted in a relaxed schedule. However, A more frequent update is much better (Compare to gevlon’s daily updates which start our days)
I used envy that BRK got TJ, and Larisa got Elnia. And it’s always better that we can have more voice on P3P.
If you want your post posted here too, don’t worry, the gate is not closed yet.
We would always welcome more contributors to post here on Phase 3: Profit.
No more delay, Welcome BigJimm *clap hands*
Zekta is taking a little break, and so he’s put out the call for an assistant. I was lucky enough to strike him as competent, and so now I’ll post here occasionally.
In real life, I’m an American. I’m a college graduate. I’m actually a law school graduate too (and to anyone considering law school, I say DON’T DO IT!). My likes: WoW, Southeast Asian martial arts, excellent punctuation, and long walks on the beach. My dislikes: PuGs, slow auction houses, and split infinitives. I am, in sum, a complete nerd stereotype, in the flesh. But enough about me, let’s talk about my toons!
I am a level 80 endgame warrior tank. I’m a gnome on Anetheron-US, a slow PvP realm. I have good gear, and raid with a regular 10-man group in my pseudo-casual/hardcore guild (we clear regular raids but not hardmodes, making us thoroughly middle-of-the-pack). My favorite PvP is the AH, and I usually sit at around 10k gold- not great but good enough to own a chopper, buy BoE gear, and the occasional pet (for which I have a weakness). I have other toons too, but the warrior is the Chosen One, my main, my first and favorite toon.
So, my first post is a bit of an inquiry more than a proper content post: what do you, dear readers, want to hear about? Zekta is a man of reason, and I am a man of… well… somewhat less reason and maybe a little too much impulse. I like tanking, I understand the gem market on my server, and have too many opinions generally.
I first thought I would start with a simple post, ie: “Netherweave is drying up because everyone in the Outland is flying” or “Enchanting mats are going to lose value because of abyssal shatter.” However, Zekta said, essentially, that those were bad ideas for posts for two reasons: (1) Everyone knows this information, and (2) I should work a little harder for a post than just posting the stuff everyone knows.
(He didn’t actually say that verbatim- he was much nicer. However, I think his assessment was accurate- I mean, you all know that netherweave cloth is going to skyrocket, right? That’s not much of a post.)
And so, after this brief introduction, I ask a second time: what would you like to read? Perhaps a series on making money after starting on a new server? Or a mailbag-style question and answer series? Maybe a running diary of me tanking a hardmode (sure to be profane, fyi)?
Tell me what you want, and if I can, I’ll write about it. Put the answers in the comments- I promise I’ll read them, at least the timely ones.
