Blog Name: der Hexenmeister

Blog URL: http://veliaf.wordpress.com

Blog Focus: Warlocks, and in particular, Demonologist-specced Warlocks. General content includes guides / advice for Warlocks (i.e. a rotation guide or leveling guide), reviews of things such as Blizzcon from a Warlock point of view, or what I'm up to in the game. I also tend to delve into the lore a fair amount.

Character Name: Veliaf

Character Server: Darkspear (EU)

Other Information: English blog, German name.

EDIT: Edited to change 'Other Information' into something useful.

The title is very confusing and may lead potential googlers to assume your blog is german. :/

I suppose it may, however I quite like it, and it's relevant to the theme of the blog :D

I didn't want something more common like the name of a spell; they all sound good to start with, and then in the end it sounds a bit silly or the spell gets removed or something. Much like when you create a really cool looking character with hairstyles and tattoos and all that, and then in the end it's wrong and you change it for something much simpler.

If anything, what is more confusing is that the address contains my character / online name and not the title of my blog, which is the one thing that bugs me.

Vel.

Well, there are plenty of things to name a blog that aren't a spell name. It's not that I don't like your blog's name, just that my intial reaction was that it probably wasn't going to be in English.

Yes I'm sorry, I couldn't find a way to reply which didn't sound at least slightly hostile :(

Anything you could suggest, other than changing the name, that could help alleviate the issue? Let's be constructive! But also don't say 'write in German', I don't speak the language well enough and the grammar would be atrocious.

Vel.

Interesting read however I agree with the above posts, I almost didn't click either because I assumed it was a non-english blog. Maybe go with what it means in english translation and use the non english in brackets next to it or something? Might help!
