Well hello healing non-meme traffic

November 1, 2009

So here I was in my quiet corner of the internet when my hit counter went nuts. “Uh oh, I must be overwelmed by spam bots or something” I panicked for a second. A little bit of research lead me to discover that Miss Medicina’s Healing Questionnaire got featured on Wow.com.

Geez, had I known that my answering the survey would cause the internet to show up at my doorstep, I would have tidied up a little bit!

I’ve been enjoying going around reading all responses. The diversity of answers is really beautiful. Out of all the roles in the game, I’ve found healing to be the one closest to an art, where there are basic rules, but different formulas work for different people and each healer has a unique style. There is one thing that I’d like to emphasize, though. I have seen some reactions I didn’t exactly approve of. We are bloggers. Blogging isn’t about writing black and white systematic reviews. It’s highly personal and opinionated, but it also provokes discussion. While some bloggers who partook in the survey are hardcore, farming heroic Anub’Arak healers, others heal exclusively in 5 mans and the rest are somewhere in between. As well, there were replies from seasonned bloggers alongside replies from very new bloggers. Anyway, my point is, or points are, we each come from a different healing and writing background and we are sharing our experience. If any of you read information that you disagree with or that is “false” or you read something that isn’t clear, then please please please do say something, but do it in the form of a comment on the post in question. Don’t secretly do it on your own blog, don’t do it on wow.com. We are bloggers, we welcome discussion.

Same goes with any post. I look at where my incoming traffic comes from, which posts they read and I think “oh boy!” If the information on a blog is inaccurate, debatable, offensive or has room for improvement, sparking a bit of discussion does everyone a favor.
