About the Bloggers introduces you to the people behind WoW Insider. Meet other staffers, both past-day and present, in earlier About the Bloggers entries.
What do you do for WoW Insider?
Oh, dear. As far as writing goes, I currently write WoW Archivist
, Two Bosses Enter
, and The Queue
(Mondays and Wednesdays), and I handle MMO Roundup
to bring you stories from the larger MMO universe that you may be interested in from our sister site Massively
. In the past, I've contributed to Hybrid Theory (long deceased, good riddance), Know Your Lore
, Ask a Lore Nerd
(since folded back into Know Your Lore and The Queue), and Spiritual Guidance
. I've also played temporary fill-in for The Light and How to Swing It
, and ... you know what, I'll stop now, because that list is way too long.
Behind the scenes, my role is largely the same as the other senior editors -- we make sure WoW Insider keeps chugging on as it should. We make sure assignments are being turned in, we make sure stories are being written up and posted in a timely fashion, we handle our social media outlets, and a whole load of other backend administrative stuff that, if we're doing our jobs well, you guys will never even need to think about. I like to think that one of my best talents is my ability to find the talent in other
people and pull it to the surface, by force if necessary. Being a senior editor, I get to utilize that every day.
Essentially, we're the guys who let Fox Van Allen
be the beautiful shining star that he is. You really don't want the fine details on all of that.
