Giving thanks to the MMOsphere

by on November 23, 2011


I’m British, if you didn’t know. Knickers, guv’nor, apples and pears, etc. And as such, I don’t do Thanksgiving, at least not with the whole turkey-and-holiday thing.

But I do very much like the idea of taking some time to be thankful. And so, I’m really enthusiastic about Blog Azeroth’s initiative this year, as they’re organising a big blogging event and competition all around the idea of being thankful to the people who’ve inspired you

“What you have to do is post a topic/letter/poem/song/story or just a simple thank you note to a fellow blogger/s meaning how you appreciate their work that maybe somehow helped you grow being a blog writer you are now. Thanking them that maybe you have learned many things from that fellow blogger, someone maybe who motivates you, gives you inspiration or pretty much any way of saying thanks to that writer/blogger. It doesn’t matter how many of them you like to thank for. And you don’t need to be tagged by someone to start your own entry, make sure to put originality to your thoughts on how you thank a fellow blogger.”

They’re handing out some neat prizes to the entries their judging panel likes the most – a Guardian Mount, a Murloc plushie, and a Blizzard in-game pet. But I believe that the main prize of the event is meant to be participating – taking the time to thank everyone out there who’s kept you going, written things that interested you or inspired you, and generally made the blogosphere a better place.

Obviously, we’re very much behind that idea. So go, participate, let Blog Azeroth know that you’re doing it, and have a great time this Thanksgiving.

Thanks very much to everyone in the blogosphere and the MMO community for doing what you do. I love reading all your thoughts, comments, opinions, rants, raves, analyses, ideas and musings, every day. You’re all awesome.

Ah, Hugh – still holding the pot together, I see :) it’s a lovely topic indeed, and the pot has a part in that, i believe. being this crossroad for MMO blogs and a place to discover new writers, is a big deal – so, thanks to you too. even when I didn’t have too much time for blogging myself lately, i always checked back here for some news and tidbits. all the best to you and your team.

I really appreciate all the participants, promoters, judges and even just for all the visitors of this event, can’t thank them enough how grateful I am, without them this event would not be possible at all. So Thank you everyone! Happy Thankslinking Everyone! =)
