One year ago, a little gnome mage came to me over IM and asked, "Kae, do you still have that resto healing guide you had on the old guild forums? I have a few druids in my new guild who could use some tips."
I did still have that guide, in fact, but as it was from TBC, I knew it needed to be updated. I also knew that simply emailing it wouldn't do: no, I should post it up in a place that they can easily reach it that had decent formatting. In fact, why not post it in a place where ALL druids could potentially find it?
http://dreambound-druid.blogspot.com was created.
I spent a few days hacking my old vanilla and TBC guild guides apart and updating them before finally posting them to my new blog. I told myself, "Hey, blogging looks like fun. I can share a few things and keep myself up to date on druidly goings-on, rather than get stuck with no other resto druids to share my ideas with in my little 10-man guild. I'll try to just post once a week and keep up with it... after all, people say keeping a diary is a good idea, so why not make it a public druidy diary of useful stuff?"
...I post, what, at least 4 times a week now? :)
|Thank you to all of my followers and fellow bloggers and commentors who have shared tips and stories, or have just made use of the muddle of math and strats I've posted over the year. You guys are why I'm doing this. Your support makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.|
In honor of Dreambound's first year, I have completely overhauled my Resto raiding guide. I have learned so much over the year not just from my own experience within the game, but also from reading other blogs or comments and learning about other styles of resto raiding. I will continue to work on it: I'd like to add illustrations, because I believe illustrations and graphics considerably help the learning process beyond what mere text can communicate.
You can find the new guide here, with its own section of pages.
