I blog about WoW, a little.It's been reported (but not confirmed) that I write everything you read on WoW Insider, with the exception of the "Fox Van Allen" articles.On a serious note, I'm not sure it really counts as "blogging" but I do make frequent and sometimes lengthy comments about my opinions concerning WoW on this site. So in that manner, I suppose I blog frequently about WoW. I've also had a few Breakfast Topics published here, so I'm certain that counts. I have a mostly-neglected blog about RP fashions in WoW (Oh man, it's been over a year since I posted anything) called the Fashionable Gnome's Guide to Fashion. http://bit.ly/cOMxT9As I try to get back into drawing more, I'm considering a blog for my drawings. We'll see where that goes.

I like the style and format of the fashion blog, that's pretty nifty. ^_^ Have you thought about reviving it with transmogrification on the horizon, since people have even more reason now to seek out cool outfits?

The thing is, putting together the outfits in WoW Model Viewer is incredibly fun for me. I love doing the type treatments and design work for each creation, as well. I LOVE to do it.Hunting down the items on wowhead, copying links, uploading the pictures to a hosting site, writing and coding the blog... they take up an incredible amount of time, and aren't even remotely fun.On top of that, some of my designs are vastly impractical, because of how I make them in ModelViewer. I design for a look, rather than functionality. This makes some of the sets impossible to wear for the people who would most want them. My "Assassin's Tweed" set, for example, uses mail leggings, which means rogues can't even wear it.Some pieces are only available to certain classes or factions, which then just frustrates people who want to use my design, but can't. Heck, I even frustrate myself with it sometimes. Made an awesome looking set for my gnomish engineer, all in purples and golds, to represent Gnomeregan, only to find out that I'd selected some priest-only pieces.I wish ModelViewer had a way of sorting that stuff, but it'd make the program far more detailed than it currently is, and I'm sure that's not really a goal of those who maintain it.

That it does on the time. I spend at least 30m to an hour just on one set to get it applied to all characters. That's not counting the time spent linking, publishing, editing etc. I spend at least 8+ hours a day getting 10 sets up. It's a lot of fun but a lot of work. ~Sinhttp://www.worldofwardrobes.net
