This is great! It's very accessible to those of us with little tanking knowledge, and an overall enjoyable read.

Also, I might have to borrow "Raid Rule 1B" for my guild. :P

Thanks for the positive feedback. As you can see, I tend to focus on whats invovled in light tanking in a casual environment. A lot of the blogs I've read over the past year or so, tend to be written by progression minded individuals who provide great information on what to aspire to accomplish with your various characters, but seem to ignore that some of us don't have 3 days to track down one specific peice of gear etc.

All of that aside, any suggestions on improving traffic? I am actually quite happy I have had some traffic, but would like more. When I see a relevant forum topic on DK.info or wow insider, etc I leave a comment with a link to one of my posts that deal with the discussion at hand. But any other thoughts would be appreciated.

In all honesty, I don't have a ton of traffic. Maybe only 150-200 visits a day, and many of those are looking at a gear list, not reading my other posts.

However, some of the best ways to improve traffic, in my (limited) experience:

- Keep writing
- Comment (thoughtfully) on other people's blogs -- this has been my biggest source of new readers, undoubtedly. It doesn't even have to be just on DK blogs. I'll find a new rogue blog from a comment on a mage blog, etc.
- Keep writing
- Consider submitted your blog to the Twisted Nether Wiki and Warcraft Bloggers
- Keep writing!

The readers will come. :)

What role do you plan to take with your DK?

I ask because I like your writing style and your blog is user-interactive and the layout is easy to follow. Granted, there are always forums to look for confirmation/ideas on certain aspects but it's nice to see a fellow DK blogging about their own thoughts and experiences.

Kal,

I plan on focusing on the aspects of our class that I find intersting as I eventually co-tank Naxx 10 in my small guild. I will continue to discuss tanking and generating solid dps with a tank build. In the near term as I wait on my friends to level I will be discussing pugging, heroics, gear considerations, etc.

I am not, and never will be looking for server first levels of progession and I kind of view my blog as thoughts for the rest of us who enjoy raiding but just can't commit the effort to be at the forefront.

Thanks again to everyone for the positive feedback.
