Official Maintainance of Blog and Blogroll

June 24, 2012

This was probably due a few months ago, though, really, you could say that about any of my posts.

I toyed around all morning with how I wanted to fix my blog to make it easier to navigate and less orangey on the right. In the end, I decided that it’s probably best to leave it as is for now. Maybe if I wake up one day and start oozing guides all over the place I’ll create a separate page for informative-type posts, but until then, we’ll have to do with orangey. This blog theme isn’t great for extra pages and changing to another theme meant resizing my header and, yeah, totally not worth it.

The orangey side bar got a new section for “Other Games”, just so I had somewhere to stick my Mass Effect ending guide (which, of course, will be outdated this Tuesday). The About page got an addition that I’d been to put in for a year.

I also redid all my categories. Back when I started the blog, I really underestimated how useful categories are. I just made a bunch of random ones, which most of my posts ending up in “General WoW”. But more than 3 years and nearly 250 posts later, I felt the need to offer something to people thinking “I wonder what she’s written about topic x”. Not that anyone really wonders that – my once a month posting schedule has likely bored most of my readers away. But, you know, just in case someone finds the blog through a search engine, happens to want to find more on the topic… A girl can dream.

The Blogroll

I’d been meaning to add Megacode’s Healing Spec for ages! My apologies to him for taking so long! His blog is most excellent, and even now, so close to MoP, he continues to provide solid, useful content, making him one of the very few bloggers, all classes combined, doing so.

We also have a holy paladin blogger who left awhile back, but has returned to us! A warm welcome back to Ruhtra and Holy Shock! He writes on a variety of topics, including holy paladin MoP coverage, which is very appreciated by those us who haven’t dabbled in the beta yet.

In other changes, I added a link to WoW Insider’s paladin category in the “General Paladin” section. I’m not sure why I hadn’t done it before. It only occurred to me as I sadly moved two of my favoritest blogs, Righteous Defense and Haz Mace, Will Raid, to my “Inactive” section that, wait a minute, I could just link all the Paladin goodness happening at WoW Insider. So yes, new link on the Blogroll.

Speaking of links I should have added ages ago, the “Your Enjoyment Guarenteed” section was missing the awesomeness that is Orcish Army Knife. I am happy to say that it is not missing anymore.

The Search for New Blood

I miss the old days of blogging where new pally bloggers would just introduce themselves to me and I could add them to the blogroll. Nowadays it’s like everyone is hiding. Or just doesn’t exist. That makes me sad.

Anyway, if you’re a pally blogger, or know a pally blogger who’s not listed here, let me know, as I would love to link to you. My general criteria require at least one post in the last month, and a couple of months of blogging (just so that I don’t set up a link to a blog that stops existing).
