Larísa’s post the other day (just shows how long ago this post was drafted) got me thinking about the cyclical nature of WoW blogs. I know I was meant to be thinking about what Wolfshead had written and Larísa’s dismay at this, but the problem was, I have seen it before.
Rewriting, Rewording, Rehashing, Reblogging Re:WoW
I’ve been blogging about WoW for 2.5 years, closer to 3, close enough to half the life of the game. I know there are many out there that have blogged since day one, before in fact.
What I write here won’t stop any of us writing, nor force us to change our topic of choice, but to ignore it would be silly.
Of course blogging is more like Twitter than Larisa may ever realize.
Twitter is like a stream of consciousness that the reader drops in and out of. Tweets prior or post that brief moment may as well not exist. So even though you may encounter something tweeted a million times before, if it’s the 1st time you see the tweet, it’s new, fresh, exciting.
Some might even consider the same with schoolyard jokes, and they go back decades… Maybe centuries.
Q: What’s brown and sticky?
When a little kid sprouts a joke you last heard 30 years before hand, the 1st thought you have is “is that joke still around?”. Of course the kid is cackling like and insane Gnome Fire Mage, because the joke is new, fresh, exciting.
