The Blog Azeroth Thanksgiving Event has returned, and I find myself wondering, has it really only been a year that I have known Navimie, JD, Tome, Cymre? I know that I started reading their blogs after last year’s Blog Azeroth Thanksgiving Event introduced me to them, yet it feels like they are friends I have “known forever”. Navi & Cymre are kindred spirits and their sheer volume of posts continually amaze me, Tome’s unique perspective and style always delight, and JD I have to thank especially for his Laid Back Raids that finally convinced me to enable RealID.
I am grateful, too, for others I have come to know, or know better, over the past year — The Godmother, Matty, Khizzara, Karegina, Erinys, Martha, Effraeti — many of whom I first became acquainted with through their presence on the blogrolls and in the comment sections of my dear friends already listed above. Then there’s Eva Marie and Ninevi, who didn’t begin blogging until the New Blogger Initiative in May, and are sweet treats on my blogroll.
The number of WoW fashion blogs I read has expanded considerably over the last year, and I’ve even managed to update my fashion blogroll recently. Draynee has a great eye for color and style and her WMV shoulder-scaling tutorial is incredibly useful. Mechalis and Zazzy write simply hilarious and very stylish Goblin-focused blogs and seeing updates from them always brightens my day.
I’m thankful also to Miri for always making me feel welcome whenever I log into Lightninghoof, even though I don’t spend much of my playtime there anymore, and for inviting me to come along to ES’s LFR runs. I have very much enjoyed the opportunity to hang out with that great group of people again.
And, of course, I’m still very grateful for the insight and inspiration of everyone I thanked by name last year.
Many thanks, also, to Amerence for hosting this great event again!
