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!

I love gold!

Well, not really.  I just enjoy talking about it.

On this episode, we are pleased to welcome Markco, the famous face and voice behind the wildly popular Just My Two Copper and The Traffic Blogger.

The three of us share our thoughts on just about everything relating to gold and even a few things relating to cold hard cash.  We start off by talking about the second quarter dip in WoW subscribers and the possible reasons behind it.  We talk about the big news concerning Diablo 3 and the addition of an auction house that thrives off real money.

Lastly, Ophelie and I confess just how much gold we’re really sitting on and Markco teaches us the Five Steps To Becoming A WoW Millionaire.  There’s even some talk of how to generate traffic to your blog and why it’s about more than just page views.

Some of the links we brought up on the show:

This week (or should I say “this episode” since we record bi-weekly) we’re thrilled to welcome Codi, former paladin theorycrafter from Moar HPS! and all around super fun person.

We get into the business side of gaming as we talk about the state of Blizzard’s subscriber count and the more prominent issue of online privacy and security (inspired, of course, by the recent Sony debacle as well as Trion’s efforts and Blizzard’s own Real ID fiasco). Our business heads Codi and Oestrus also teach me a few things about targeting an audience and marketing strategies that may be shocking in the progressive sense and the less progressive sense.

We also establish that if Oestrus were a booth babe, I would totally take a picture with her so I can Sin to Win.

iTunes!

You can now get your Double O fix on iTunes! You can also leave us reviews, ratings and all that good stuff!

Got a WoW Topic you’d like to talk about?

A few people expressed some interest in hanging out with us for an episode. We love getting new ideas and hearing new voices, so we’re very excited at the idea of having more guests on the show. Our episodes tends to be focused on a different, specific topic, so if there’s something you know a lot about and you would like to share that something, let us know!
