I think it's a solid suggestion, so here's your prompt, ladies and gents.

Do you feel there is a balance between your real life and your WoW life; if so, how do you achieve it?

Looking forward to seeing some entries on this!

-Track

On one hand, he's got some great ideas and opinions about blogging and hunter related stuff. He's even got a Bruce Campbell avatar over at the BRK forums.

On the other hand, he did roll Horde. And not just any Horde, but a big freakin' Tauren. AND...he uses a gun.

I'm so confused.

As was disccused in this thread, we are going to try to avoid the Shared Topic #2, #3, etc. idea. Instead I took the liberty of changing the title. ^_^ Please don't hate me, Trackhoof!

Great idea though. I'll be using it soon. =)

Also, thank you, I believe that's earned your quote a place in my sig. :D

Great suggestion! Although this took forever to write, I do feel I have a better understanding of where I stand with RL and WoW.

Can there be a peaceful coexistence?

Thanks for the suggestion, Track. I'll work on this and hopefully get it posted soon.

I also read your take on this topic over at your blog. Good stuff, man! I'm going to have to return the favor and use one of your quotes in my sig!

“I have a Sniper Rifle now, pew pew pew"

LMAO

Coincidentally, before signing up here yesterday, I composed a post on this topic. In fact, my entire blog is about balancing life and for me that includes WoW. Currently, my posts focus a lot on WoW as I'm working out how to best balance it with RL. It's a great topic and interesting to read other people's perspectives.

So, here's my post I wrote yesterday.
