The Sixth, and Ten to the Sixth

This is Gnomey’s fault. And Nymphy’s and Orv’s. And Jaedia. And Magritte. They tagged me in the sixth meme while I am on vacation, so here is the sixth screenshot in my Dropbox folder, because that’s all I’ve got access to out here.

Behold, the northern end of Arathi Basin. Trollbane Hall, home to the League of Arathor, stands nestled in the embrace of the ridges which define the fertile basin. (Well, fertile for Arathi, come on, it’s no Sholazar.) The Stables sits, undefended, waiting for someone to come fight at the flag.

This is now my desktop wallpaper on this little netbook.

And, as the rules of this little game state, I now have to tag six more people. So I’m going to tag Psynister, Anexxia, and the 4 talented authors of Flavor Text Lore. (Yes, I went there with FTL. Yes, I’m going to spread this meme over to SW:TOR blogs.)

However, this post is really your fault. You. Yes, you.

You see, this happened this weekend.

… and it wouldn’t have been possible without you.

I can tell myself that a million hits (10^6, naturally) is just a number, that this is odometer worship, it’s just the same as any other day. I debated even talking about it – much like discussing one’s salary, talking about one’s web traffic can be gauche in many circles.

But a million hits is a humbling number. It’s one that makes you sit back and go, I am really lucky. I am really grateful for everyone who stops by and finds something I’ve written worth reading. It is astonishing to me, even now, that this has happened.

So, thank you for visiting, for reading, for commenting. Thank you.

  1. Wow, huge congrats to you! That’s an amazing milestone. (And lovely shot, btw.)

    • Thanks! I’m still trying to figure out how the Stables isn’t taken yet. Even in the post-battle lull (when most of my shots are taken) you can see the shaft of light from the flag. But not in this one.

    I blame your evil, warlocky influence for the delicious evils we are soon to be perpetuating on the 20-24 twink bracket. ;)

  4. Now that you’re Big Time, I guess it means that you’ll be able to dispense Wisdom from the voice of authority, right? ;-)

    Gratz!

  5. OMG a million hits that is amazing! Congratulations!
    And of course, nice pic :) That is after all what I came here to see.

  8. That’s awesome man.. you deserve twice that number, but that’s a good start!

  9. That’s awesome man. Grats. On a somewhat related note, I vote bring the CFN style of posting here! There are no corporate masters at CBM dictating the type of content you publish. Your CFN posts were every bit as professional and considered, there’s no need to segregate them.

    Congratulations, don’t let it overwhelm you :)

    While as non-subscriber it doesn’t affect me (let alone directly, though my friends that still play are affected), there has been a post at Tobold’s that might interest you http://tobolds.blogspot.com/2012/02/wow-realid-premade-hk-farming.html

    From what I understand, PUG BG’s in the EU have become less-than-enjoyable for PUG’s , Threads complainting about this disappaer left and right (not those organising spawncamps, perplexingly) and, perhaps the most puzzling, people trying to organize Premade vs Premade games find their Threads disappearing as well e.g.
    http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/3388890993

    Anyhoo, I thought you might be interested in it, no idea on how things have panned out in the US. Again, congratulations on the hits and keep on trucking :)

    • Thanks! I’ll be honest – I’m not playing enough level 85 battlegrounds to give a good opinion about the state of that bracket right now. I hesitate to comment on something I’m just not sure about.

      Perhaps things will change and I’ll get the urge to play my warlock again. Stranger things have happened. :)
