Episode 13: The Write Stuff

December 4, 2011

After a month long hiatus, where we shook off the dust from BlizzCon and Ophelie recovered from another leg of the Bossy Pally Bus Tour, we are back with Episode 13!

The idea for this episode came directly from one of our listeners, @FFPMMarc, who suggested that we make an episode about people who are new to blogging and what they should know before they get started.  Ophelie and I start off by talking about what blogging platforms we prefer (i.e. Blogger or WordPress), what are some good or bad reasons to decide to start blogging, how to promote your blog and the importance of Twitter, habits of other bloggers that really annoy us, and the highs and lows of collaborative blogging.

Plus, we sprinkle in a little chat about what we’re currently up to in our lives, our recent review on iTunes, and some big plans that Ophelie and I have for the podcast and our website!

As mentioned, we are available on iTunes, for free, 24 hours a day.  Feel free to subscribe to the show, download our most recent episodes, and leave a review.  We love hearing from our listeners and look forward to reading more of your comments and seeing more of your suggestions for us.

Thanks for listening!

      Hi Kat!

      Thanks for the praise! Blogging doesn’t have to seem like work, but it does involve some amount of dedication to not only get it off the ground, but to keep it going. We never want to make it seem like a job, because at that point we would suggest to take a break in between posts, or write about really fun and carefree topics.

      I hope to see what you come up with and I’ll be sure to plug you and save you a spot on my blogroll, too.

    It’s kind of funny, I feel like there’s this giant blogging universe out there, and I feel like I’ve never really managed to connect with it somehow. I got lucky and was linked on WoWInsider a couple of times, and sometimes another blog will bump me, but for the most part, my readership is fairly low.

    Bnt I kind of don’t mind, I guess. I don’t know. Not that I don’t want a readership! I think I’ve just been a bit insular myself, despite the fact that I’ve been writing for… good grief, nearly 2 years, now.

    Anyway – good episode, as per usual. You guys keep knocking these out of the park, I’m so tired of the radio-jock WoW podcasts and you guys keep it civil, funny, and entertaining while talking about engaging stuff.

    More episodes, please!

      Thank you!

      I’ve found that the only way to really feel involved in the WoW blogging community is reaching out to others, starting up conversations, etc. I found you because you commented on my blog ^_^. Other blogging friends I’ve met from emails, twitter or Blog Azeroth.

      There are some bloggers who’ve made it big using search engines, but those tend to work best for informational and editorial blogs.
