|This Episode Fim’s eyebrows take over the world…well not really, but they are a great party prop. Join us for the first ever TNB LIVE Show!|
Is it that time again! That’s right boys and girls, it is roundup time! We are excited to have Anna from Too Many Annas 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:
Welcome Andrea of Altoholicmom’s Are Us to the Blogging Netherhood.
Andrea is a 23 year old mother of two, living in Alaska. (Who knew they had internet in Alaska?) Her husband is a serving in the US Coast Guard and in her most recent post she’d shared with us that he’s been deployed for a month and the impact that’s having on her real, blogging and gaming life. Outside of gaming, she enjoys scrap booking, quilting, painting and hopes to return to traveling when her young children get a little older.
Andrea started blogging on July 3rd. Her entries follow her and her merry band friends through their successes and woes. Twice she has been a GM while playing horde side, but she has currently re-rerolled alliance and brought a few horde converts with her. (Or maybe they are spys.) Her writing shows a feisty spirit of a woman who’s worked WoW into one of her priorities in a very full and vibrant life. A guild mate of Dechion from Be Nameless, and already participating in some BA Shared Topics Andrea is settling into our Blog-o-sphere quite nicely.
So, welcome to the blog-o-sphere Andrea. May your readers be numerous and your typos be few.
Every Friday, the Twisted Nether Team has provided me (Auzara of Chick GM) with an opportunity to highlight a new blogger and welcome them to our blog-o-sphere. If you have a wonderful new blog I may have missed, please drop me a line at ChickGM at gmail dot com with a title of Welcome Wagon. I can’t promise to highlight them all but I’ll certainly try.
EDIT: Well, it’s over! Thanks to everyone who participated. Hopefully I will have a recorded version of the show online on monday..
Come join us for this special event! That’s right! For one show, the Twisted Nether Blogcast will be recorded live and you can participate! Join us as several WoW bloggers come over to our virtual roundtable and discuss all things regarding WoW and blogging.
Who is going to be on the show?
That’s great Bre, stop selling the darn thing, and tell me when it is!
The show is scheduled for Saturday, July 19, 2008 at 12:30 am EST (yes I know that technically makes its Sunday, July 20, just go with me on this)
Okay that is a start, now where do I go?

Outside of that, we will love to have you join us and partake in an enlightening discussion that is sure to follow!

It’s Thursday again – Blogger Tip Time!
Know Your Readers (part 2)
So a few weeks ago we talked about using your statistics to track referrals, learning who was reading your site and who was linking to it from other webpages. This time, I’d like to look at another feature of using a statistics tracker – knowing when your readers are on your site.
This information is likely to be *similar* across the blogosphere, since many of the people that read one WoW Blog will read several, but I’ve found through looking at the statistics for Too Many Annas that my visitors come in something of a weekly cycle.
Usually I get the most hits on Tuesdays (hooray server downtime), with a slow taper for the rest of the week. Sometimes I’ll have a small spike on Thursday as well. Weekends usually have half the hits that weekdays have.
What does that tell me? Well, most people are visiting Too Many Annas on weekdays (very likely from work, since most of my hits are before 5pm pacific time). A lot of visitors will show up on Tuesday during server maintenance.
My response to that is to try to tailor my weekly posts to my readers. If I know that LOTS of people will show up every Tuesday, I try to make sure they have a good post to read! If I know that there are very few people that make it to my blog on weekends, a crazy busy weekend day doesn’t stress me out so much if I have to miss a post, or delay one for a day or two.
Admittedly, this can require a fair amount of planning ahead – more than just writing a post and hitting publish. Sometimes if I write a really fantastic, awesome post on a Saturday at 2am, I’ll save it for Tuesday, knowing that more people will read it then, and that my “Downtime Readers” will get a really awesome thing to read on their boring Tuesday morning. It’s certainly not all consuming, but it’s a nice little tidbit of information to keep in mind when planning posts that you know will have good content.
Know your readers – and know when they’re visiting!
Every Thursday, one of the Annas from Too Many Annas stops by with a mid-week blogger tip. If you have questions or suggestions for future tips, email Anna ( tips at twistednether dot net ) with a message titled “Blog Tipping”.
