I wanted to start this post off by saying that I am grateful for a lot of things in my life, but this is going to be a very special post. I am going to talk about how grateful I am towards my fellow bloggers in the community. This is also going to be my entry for “A Blog Azeroth Thanksgiving” hosted by a fellow author, Amerence of “Amerence Love WoW.”
Usually I write in sections, but everything is so meshed together that I cannot break it into sections. Also, you can click on the pictures for a larger view. I apologize in advance if I seem to be all over the place in this post, but you should still see my point (hopefully).
First off, I would like to thanks the makers and moderators of Blog Azeroth. You are what helps keep the forum and community alive with fun events and Shared Topics. I am thankful you have created a place where all Warcraft Bloggers can come and socialize. Before joining Blog Azeroth, (this may sound silly) I felt odd. I thought it would be silly to write a blog, especially one about Warcraft. I kept writing in hopes that one day, my thoughts and experiences in WoW will help someone. Joining Blog Azeroth made me see how giant the WoW Blogging community really is. I am thankful to know that I am not alone. Someone out there in the world cares, and are looking for others that share their thoughts. You have opened a portal where new and old WoW bloggers can come together, socialize, and share ideas. I know I don’t participate as much as I would love to, but I love Blog Azeroth. I thank you for the time and efforts put into Blog Azeroth.
Second, I would like to thank my fellow WoW Bloggers. I was going to specifically thank certain WoW Bloggers, but the list kept growing (and growing). Truth is…I love to read WoW Blogs. If you’re on my blogroll, then I am thankful for you. If you’re not, then I just haven’t added you yet 😛 I love looking at screenshots. I love socializing with other people about something that I love so much. I love the humor I come across when I read blog posts from my fellow Bloggers. It is also not easy to put your thoughts in words. A lot of people do not realize it, but it really does take a lot of courage to tell your thoughts and opinions to someone. It takes even more courage to share it with the entire world.
Hmm, how can I put this? Oh yes. A good example is my real life friend Kiera, who also plays World of Warcraft. I haven’t been keeping up with things going on with her life, but I have noticed how often she was going to the doctor based on her Facebook statuses. Kiera posted a video of her going through a Gelastic Seizure on Facebook. I have to admit it was one of the creepiest things I’ve ever seen, but Kiera has recently started a medical blog to talk about her experiences with her condition. Her friend, Ally has been great looking out for her (as all good friends should :P), and has summed up how I feel about Kiera’s Medical Blog.
I’m very proud of your efforts to try and accept and share what’s going on with you. It’s a good life lesson for a lot of women. It’s not easy to share bad choices we have made especially when domestic abuse leads to permanent brain damage but what if one person sees these videos or reads these blogs and changes their situation before something like this happens to them. BRAVO Mizz Kiera. – Ally
I know I am comparing a Warcraft Blog to a Medical one, but my point still stands. I recently came across The Gold Queen’s post, and the White Ribbon campaign. *inserts banner* I salute you ladies for your commitment to your blogs, and the courage you show. *hugs to all* I also didn’t realize the time and effort it takes to keep a blog up to date, until I started one. I applaud the WoW Bloggers that post in their blogs every day, regardless of how busy they are! I especially love seeing those WoW Bloggers try and be part of the WoW Blogging community over at BlogAzeroth. You guys work hard! 🙂
Third, I would like to thank ALL BLOGGERS. Of course, as much as it seems like I am expressing my thanks to only WoW Bloggers; I am not. I’m thankful for Bloggers in general. For the same reasons, I expressed for WoW Bloggers. Everyone is different, and I honestly believe everything I do is helping me become who I am today (and in the future). The media cannot cover every aspect of our world, and I am thankful that I can see something through their eyes. So keep blogging, and Happy Thanksgiving to all <3
