Blog Name: Deekow - The Casual Death Knight

Blog URL: http://deekow.blogspot.com

Blog Focus: Death Knight from a casual player perspective. Focus on starting on a new server and making my way through.

Character Name: Deekow

Character Server: Grizzly Hills (US)

Other Information: I'm returning to WoW after trying a Death Knight as it's the first class I've really felt a connection with in WoW. As a general newb, the blog will focus on my adventures with the Death Knight, to include my perspective on talent trees, builds, certain abilities, group roles and general thoughts.

Hmm... not one response. /sadface. Not even from the spammers.

Truly and honestly not pouting, whining, etc... why is it people passed this by? I think I'm a good writer, very personable and articulate (and just fun enough to make a couple I know who do read it chuckle). Can someone offer some constructive criticisms?

Things I'm aware of:
a) no screens - everything's prep right now for the DK, but I understand that has nothing to do with people's love for pics.
b) no vids - trying to figure out what software BRK uses (love his setup) for creating videos. I'm entirely overwhelmed with school/game/blogging/family at the moment, so going slower than I thought it would.
c) on larger screens, the text it all scrunched to the middle with TONS of wasted space - no clue, tried adjusting table width in pure html, no joy

Hey, Deekow. Don't worry about getting no replies. It doesn't mean we haven't been paying attention. :) Things are fairly hectic with the expansion being just released and with the spam attack on the forums.

Well anywho you asked for constructive criticism, yes? I really do want to see pictures. I know you're working on that so I'll stop that there to save time :P. You also only have 7 posts at the time of me writing this so don't fret if you're not getting a lot of attention just yet. Just keep pumping out those posts and the readers will come.

I've added you to my reader so I'll be waiting for your upcoming posts :D. A small suggestion would be to add an RSS icon near the top of your blog somewhere that links to your feed. I had to use the icon in the address bar that is provided by Firefox (can't say if the other browsers do or not) but if people see an RSS icon they might think to subscribe even if they hadn't thought to before.

Cheers!

Thanks! Still overwhelmed with all there is to know about blogging.... it's come a long ways in a couple years. Added the RSS sub. Still not sure how exactly to use RSS, but seems simple. Trying to learn at least a little bit every day. And yeah, not only is it crazy with WotLK stuff... but now due to the anniversary achievement, I have about 19.5 hours to log in the DK for the first time... talk about pressure!

Thanks again, and no worries... I've become a blogging addict, there's plenty more to come.

The whole "no pic" issue has been resolved... with serious overcompensation :D

Looks very nice and very promising.
My blog is about the same niche as yours :-)

Thanks even more for the continued kindness. And Bunyfer especially, that was awesome, and I love the look of your blog a ton. Sometimes it's things like that that make me wanna swap to WP, but changing things is a dangerous task for me, lol.
