|This episode, we not only have one horde, we doubled our pleasure and got a second one as well! Join us for an express episode of TNB.|
You may notice, but this week’s show will be a bit short. Real life crit us for 100,000k and we are recovering. But that doesn’t mean we don’t have cool posts to link to!
Is it that time again! That’s right boys and girls, it is roundup time! We are excited to have Mania the creator of Petopia and Mania’s Arcania joining us as our Twisted Blog next episode. If there are any burning questions you would like to ask her, feel free to send them in! Here are a few posts you may have missed!
Hay to Munch on:
One of the key ways to build your blog is to give readers a reason to come back. One of the ways you can do that (and build up the body of work that will define your blog) is to write a series of connected articles.
These can be either a step by step process, like Bellwether has been doing with her raiding guild posts, a related progression, like Matticus’ healing strategies, or simply a collection of posts that make sense together, like Jagerbombz Karazhan healing guides.
Unfortunately, however, writing an article series is about more than just posting on a whim and linking some of your posts to other posts. Planning ahead can help you create a fantastic series that will draw your readers in and have them coming back for more.
There are a few things that will help make a successful article series:
The more connected articles are, the more readers will be waiting for the next installment, and the easier it will be for them to follow the entire series.
Writing an article series takes time and patience and requires a little more planning than a normal blog post, but it can be extremely rewarding – both in terms of traffic and commenter feedback. Give it a try!

This week’s Shared Topic is brought to us by The Wrathbringer of Metal Up Your WoW and is entitled simply "Refer-a-Friend." Blizzard and the player community are all abuzz at the recent announcement of the Refer-a-Friend program, a system that lets a player earn a unicorn-esque Zhevra mount by encouraging someone they know to sign up and commit to playing for two months. There are a host of other benefits for the two players involved, including:
Reactions from players so far have been pretty mixed with some complaining that it promotes farmers leveling multiple characters more easily and some complaining that they should be entitled to the program without having to sign up for another account. Still, some players have been thinking about how to best exploit the system to easily level one or more new characters to 60 before the release of the expansion. What’s your perspective?
