UPDATE Thank you very much to our two volunteers for the Blizzcon LiveBlogging team! So far we have help covering the event on Friday but I will still need help with the event on Saturday. We will be using coveritlive, tonight Fimlys and I should have it all set up and ready to go. Please please please contact me if you are able to help out on Saturday as I can promise I will not be able to cover all of the relevant information in all the panels alone. Since I’ll be parked in front of my office computer I plan on being in Skype as well, so folks can call in to give some opinions or reviews of their own, and anyone liveblogging can chat back and forth to get some cross-pollination of the panels. Please let me know quickly if you are able to join us!
This year I am once again unable to go to Blizzcon, but I will be enjoying the coverage from home with the DirecTV streaming package just as I did last year.
I volunteered to do some liveblogging of the event here on TNB and I told Fimlys and Hydra I’d like to put together a small team so we can make sure to get coverage of each event. So this is the call to arms.
Will you be watching the Blizzcon coverage from home this year? Would you like to liveblog one or more of the events while doing so, and have the opportunity to share your views and opinions on what is taking place as it happens? Here is your chance!
Send an email to email@example.com and put in the subject line “Blizzcon Liveblogging Team” and I will compile a list of all those wanting to liveblog the event and we’ll get together in either a collaborative doc or in chat of some type and go over the event schedule and who would like to blog what.
I know for me personally, the events taking place early in the event on Friday will be difficult as I am working that day, so having some assignments for those events would be a huge help.
Thanks everyone, and I look forward to being able to participate in the event with everyone, even if I am on the opposite end of the country!

Hello Everyone! I’d like you to join me in welcoming Chatmay of The WoW Debutante.
Chatmay has been playing WoW since 2004. She is very invovled with her guild, and more specifically creating and hosting fun and unique events on her server. She is a member (and group owner!) of the WoW Moms forums on the cafemoms forums. She hopes to educate people about both guild and RP events, and feels that there isn’t enough information on these things within the community.
You will find all kinds of exciting things over at The WoW Debutante, that could rival your favorite television shows! Do you like Top Model or Project Runway? Then check out how to create your own WoW Fashion Show! A fan of the Amazing Race? Well, did you know that Azeroth has its own version? Think that those crazy kids of the Jersey Shore know how to party? They don’t have anything on Chatmay’s party planning adventures! Miss Project Greenlight? Don’t worry! Indie movies are still being made.
I think it’s clear that Chatmay knows how to have a good time! I can’t wait to read more about her adventures. Welcome to the blogosphere, Chatmay!
Every Tuesday, Beruthiel from Falling Leaves and Wings is bringing you the Welcome Wagon, introducing new bloggers and great reads. If you know of a new blog to the scene or wish to get your name out there, please send an email to email@example.com, with the subject line “Welcome Wagon.” She’ll do her best to highlight as many as possible
No, no, not the grind, a grind. This week Kallixta asked us to turn the tables and instead of complaining about the worst grinds ever (I’m looking at you Argent Tournament) instead, to think of a grind we loved to… well, grind!
Normally the words “Best” and “Grind” are not found this close together and there are plenty of grinds to hate. However, I’m interested in the flip side:
Was there something that required sustained and prolonged effort that you found interesting or rewarding? Was there something that was not just a chore to work on?
I’m assuming most grinds are for Reputation, but maybe you have a novel definition?

This week’s shared topic asks us what’s changed with the threat changes? Do tanks need to focus their attention elsewhere? Are DPS learning bad habits? What should tanks and non-tanks know about each other’s roles? Share your thoughts on your blog, and share a link in the Shared Topic thread at Blog Azeroth!
We’d also love to queue up some upcoming topics for November, so if you’d like to get the party started with a tantalizing question, just start a new thread in the Shared Topic forum at Blog Azeroth.
