When I started, I didn’t think this little project would last six months. I’m enthusiastic about new projects, but I have a great tendency to lag off as my interest gets pulled and new projects.
But… I passed six months a couple of weeks ago and didn’t even notice!
The Numbers Thus Far

I started the blog on September 3, 2009, and I’m still excited about my project as the day I started. Why have I stayed so interested? What is about this project that is keeping me locked to the computer? Honestly, the community. I know there’s been some hub-bub this week, but honestly, I’ve run across many great players, writers, enthusiasts and thinkers.
I joined Blog Azeroth. I stopped just reading, and starting commenting, and discovered I wouldn’t lose my head even over the silliest or least relevant of topics. I finally worked up the nerve to make a Twitter account, which I thought I would never, ever do. I mean, honestly, who cares if I’m waking or sleeping? Unless it’s Greatfather Winter, I just don’t see it.
Even more, I got up the nerve to volunteer for a guest post! When Blog Azeroth asked for mods, I stuck my neck out there–I was still intimidated by the idea of moderating a forum that I used as a resource, but hey, I’ve done guild forums… couldn’t be that bad, right? Now I found myself on the other side: welcoming new bloggers to the community and handing out advice like I know what I’m talking about *chortle* They do realize I’m still new right??
You’ve cast a spell on me, and I’d like to return the favor :P
In the style of Tamarind’s Pox Party and Sideshow & Syrana’s Holiday Gift, I am offering myself as your personal muse. It’s really quite a selfish gift–you may get a measly topic, but I get a whole post to read!
This is meant to be a low-stress and fun exchange of funnies and fun to celebrate my still pumping blog. While 6 months may seem like a lark to some, to me its an important milestone, and the fact that it passed so effortlessly had me adding up the months a few times to make sure I hadn’t gotten confused ^^
If you’d like to participate, simply make a comment, and I will think of some dutifully wonderful or pain-staking topic for you to discuss in any length, depth or seriousness that you prefer.
Thank you for making me feel like a success. Here’s wishing for another great six months!
Let the blogging begin. Spell Cast: Muse ^^
Post-edit: If you’d like a topic to celebrate my blogaversy (it’s a real word, ask Jaedia), please post a comment by March 31st. The Muse grows weary, and requires a chance to rejuvenate. If you miss the deadline, don’t worry! The Muse will be back I’m sure.
