Whispers of War Podcast – featuring moi :)

You might remember a few months back I mentioned I was doing an interview for a podcast, well – it is now out and I am too scared too listen to it incase I sound like a right royal looney bin!! So since I am too chicken, I expect all of you to listen and …

#Blaugust2019 – OMG I DID IT!

All 31 days of August had a post. I cannot believe it. I have absolutely no idea how I managed to do it honestly. It get very hard towards the last week – I was just running out of ideas. There were plenty of writing prompts but I had written about them previously (or recently) …

#Blaugust2019 – Why do I actually blog?

This is a question I have had running through my brain the last few weeks quite a lot. The answer is I am not sure, I just enjoy writing posts and like to know people are reading them. I think it shows insight to how I view games and what excites or angers me in …

#Blaugust2019 – Creator appreciation – Music

Music is one of those things I want in my life playing all the time. Sadly I need to be talking to people and watching other things, so I can’t have music going as much as I would like. It is a huge part of my emotional rollercoaster balancing as well. It can put me …

#Blaugust2019 – Creator appreciation – Comics

I thought I would post about some of my favourite comics which i read and follow on social media so I know when new ones have come out. Belzebubs – is without a doubt my current favourite. We haven’t had an actual comic for a little bit but I absolutely love this comic of a …

#Blaugust2019 – Creator appreciation – Youtube

Hubby and I watch more youtube than streaming and TV combined these days. I am not sure how it happened but we just enjoyed watching content people have created. We even toyed with the idea of creating a youtube channel ourselves but neither of us could really spare the time to edit, create and come …

#Blaugust2019 – Creator appreciation – Artists

The writing ideas for this week are about appreciating people who create content. Things I like watching, buying, seeing and being involved in. I thought it might be cool for me to break down into categories but who knows. I may be out of steam by the end of a few posts. Today I am …

#Blaugust2019 – Times they are a changing

So when this post goes live, our friends Ben and Oui, may have started their journey to move from Sydney to Melbourne. They were planning on leaving “early” to start their drive but I have no idea if they will actually manage it. We met them at PAX 2014 for the first time through Michael …

#Blaugust2019 – First ever blog post.

This was a post idea on the discord channel and I thought it would be a good one to investigate. I went all the way back to my actual first post ever. 5th Feb 2003. I remember the story of my blogging so well. I was working at MLC in North Sydney and my friend …

#Blaugust2019 – Whispers of War Podcast

Guess who is getting interviewed on Whispers of War? Me 🙂 How exciting?!!? The above tweet went out recently and I saw it in my feed from a retweet and I thought, what the heck; I am a lady who plays WoW and loves talking about it as well – I have 30-60 mins spare! …

#Blaugust2019

I have vague recollections of seeing this a few years ago and thinking I would never be able to do it, but I am going to throw my hat in the ring this year. I am pretty lucky I happened to notice this though as it is in the middle of prep week now. Basically …

Featured images

If you have been reading my blog for a while you will have noticed I try to use the same featured images to keep a consistent theme running. I hope this helps people identify what the post is about before they read it because some people aren’t interested in some topics and I do write …

Where have all the bloggers gone?

So a memory came up in my facebook feed today which made me so happy but also kind of sad. I am not the only person to notice that the blogosphere seems to have reduced in size somewhat in the last couple of years. It is something I have discussed a few times with people …

How do you actually play?

Honest question incoming. [shame] I am a clicker and a sometimes keyboard turner. In an effort to break up all the raiding posts I thought I would see input from the collective. A long time ago – somewhere in the middle of my WoW history I was not a clicker. i spent hours on a …

Transmogrification Classic is at the midway point!!!

The competition closes on the Saturday 17th November 2018.  Make sure you get all your outfits to me before that time to ensure you are not disqualified forever and out of the running for a cute (Or nightmare looking!!) in game pet or mount from the Blizzard store. Please help spread the word by sharing, …

Intpipomo 2018

Intpipomo is one of those things I never seem to know how to get in on and it frustrates me as I only ever know about it after the fact.  Not this year my wonderful readers!!  No, this year I am only  few days behind and I have even registered thanks to seeing this post …

Whatever is easiest for you 😉 Send the files to my gmail account of onyxiia. Please name them something similar to Dragonray_Cataclysm_Mage. Competition ends Saturday 17th November – …

Shared topic 42: What is your favourite role and why?

This week’s topic from Z and Cinder is a nice one: Do you love being the shield that protects your group, or the damage dealer that melts the mobs before you or the healer at the back shaking your head at the people standing in fire and giving you something to do? We’d also love …

Transmog Competition – Update!

Since my previous post about running a transmog competition was so well received  I have decided to actually think about it a little more and I am currently in the process of organising all the behind the scenes details!  It is going to go live very soon 🙂 (Maybe even this weekend!) I am currently …

Backdating

I have decided to start trying to locate posts from prior to this current iteration of my blog.  I have a huge chunk missing when I changed to self hosting and didn’t keep any form of back up. (I was certain I would never be back). So I am going to import a bunch of …
