Other Information: It's simply a collection of sights from around the world(s), presented as if they were in a collectible postcard series. I try and capture significant locations, roleplay events unfolding, curiosities, familiar and favourite NPCs, infamous quests and scenes that'll jog memories back to places you might have forgotten. Here's an example or two:

Oh very cool! Very very cool! I would love to put a link to your blog on my site!

BTW Just out of curiosity: How do you feel about others using your images so long as a link back and credit is given?

Thanks a bunch, it's given me a new outlook when I'm pottering around Loremastering.

Re images, links and credit... Not a problem at all!

Hi there! I just wanted you to know I think your concept is amazing and your images are even better, so I mentioned it in a post I did on recently discovered blogs: http://blogofcorruption.blogspot.com/20 ... blogs.html

Thanks to you both, both added!

Moving images from one server to another currently, so hotlinking will be broken if you use my images elsewhere =]

I don't know what the tolerance to "bumping" is, but have a nice lot of shots added since I last posted here. A project to capture the "Tabards of The Sha'tar" didn't quite take off, so whilst I'm trying to arrange taking great group shots of the more popular RP guilds on the server, I'm sending my army of alts in the direction of some of my favourite questing moments:

As far as I know, we have no definitive guidelines, more a "as long as it isn't annoyingly often, we probably won't hassle you kinda thing :P

I personally would encourage bloggers who have had a recent return of major shift to re-publicize themselves :)

Thanks! It started as just filler content for a Newspaper-style blog on server events that someone else was running but I got carried away :lol:

I'm not overly sure how it works, but there is this link at the bottom of each page: Subscribe to: Posts (Atom) or you can "Follow" if you have a blogger/google account, very top of the page if you're signed in.

Wonderful idea, and quite artistic! You have a good eye for what makes a cool screenshot!

Hellooo! Had a 3-month break but been tempted back to capture zones which'll get a radical overhaul come the 'clysm.

Azshara at sunset tonight was lovely:

As many others have said, the screenshots used for these are awesome. Some of them just make me want to send "e-postcards" of these with a small message like "Well, hello from Ruby Sanctum again. Not much happening aside from being cut in half. Wish you were here with me. -Poptart"

Thanks for the lovely comments everyone! Been thinking of a few ideas (inspired by your comments) on ways of expanding or improving the blog, balancing that against its simplicity.

Any ideas - contents, shots, etc - are more than welcome.

I love your simplicity. I wouldn't deviate too much from what you're doing, which is quality work.

Thank you very much! I'll certainly look to improve the design itself - maybe just a different template and/or improved comments system - but will definitely keep the core content the same, maybe adding an updated logo for Cataclysm shots (then maybe presenting alongside them a "before" screenie from the blog archives). Debating adding more lore to relevant entries though; a paragraph about who, what, where, why etc.

My image host runs out in a few weeks so I'll be moving them all soon - 446 shots at most recent count - may also upload the original fullsize screenshots in the future too. I've kept the vast majority of them.

Any ideas, and more importantly, suggestions for Postcards always appreciated!

~ Rio
