Blog Azeroth Shared Topic: Starstruck by someone in the WoW community

Each week, Blog Azeroth hosts a Shared Topic for bloggers to answer on their own blogs and then link to in the forum. This week, dragonray from Azerothian Life asks:
Are you starstruck by anyone? Does someone in the community respond to a post or a tweet and get you all speechless because they actually responded? Is there anyone you are waiting to have respond directly to you? Is there someone that you would like to chat to, but are too chicken? Am I the only one who puts other bloggers on a pedestal?
This is such a weird and awkward question to answer for so many reasons, particularly because of where I work. I guess that's a bit of a Captain Obvious statement. I work with so many people I admire -- really amazing writers, and knowledgeable too. I am very fortunate.

Every time I get thanked for linking to a blog post from the general WoW community, I get a thrill. After all, I'm only linking it because I admire the work. It's not like I'm randomly choosing blogs from a bingo tumbler cage thingy. Hmm, it would be rather difficult to write blog names on those little balls. OK. It's not like I'm randomly choosing blogs from some random blog-name generator thingy. "Cynwise's Warcraft Manual! You have been chosen by the random blog-name generator thingy! Here's a link." Yeah ... no.

WoW Insider Show Episode 107: Fighting the fanboy


Here's our podcast from last weekend, when both Amanda Dean and Adam Holisky tuned in to join Turpster and I and talk about the biggest stories of the past week in Warcraft. Unfortunately, it was a bad day for Skype, so we had some rough tumbles with lag and audio problems, but we did manage to get in some good insight about Matt Low's thoughts on why you probably shouldn't play a Priest, the incoming lore reasons on why those new race/class combos are possible, Adam's challenge to Blizzard and their veiled release information, and what our faction transfer survey came up with in terms of conclusions. Despite the technical issues, I'm told it was still a pretty good show, so tune in below to hear it for yourself.

This week, we're going live at a special time (and yes, apologies to the guy who last week that we were switching around times constantly -- this is only because I'm embarking on a cross-country move later in the week, and the rest of the year we should always be found on Saturdays). We'll be live this Wednesday evening, September 16th, 2009 6:00 PM EDT right over on our Ustream page. I know that's probably a little late for you EU folks, but the last few shows have been earlier than usual, so this one's for the Americans getting home from work. And of course if you can't make that time, we'll definitely have the show on the iTunes feed later on for your listening enjoyment. See you then.
