Update: Looks like the feed is fixed for new posts only. It has not grandfathered in the old posts. This shouldn’t be a problem. Problem solved!
Currently I’m trying to fix my feed so that it displays new posts in full text rather than summary. I’ve modified the necessary settings but it’s still not displaying correctly in my feed, so be a little patient with me. I’ve updated the theme of the blog so that it’s not so dreary and unexciting. It may still be rather dull, but we all start somewhere.
I’ve just recently gotten a new twitter account just for this blog: @pheshamanal and a new email address firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll be updating the About page shortly with this information. I’ve added a few widgets you might find interesting, especially a delicious feed for all of my wow tagged bookmarks. These are rather random and are just things that I like and want to save for later, but feel free to look at any of them. I’ve gotten a blog roll up and a few pieces of organization here and there.
The last thing I wanted to mention and be forward about is the addition of a paypal donate button. Currently I’m trying to figure out the best way to represent what I’m taking donations for and how to signify that I’m not running any specific donation drive at a certain time. I added it because I’m a starving college student and as much as I wish that I could afford to update and upgrade all of my blog stuff and perhaps a website, I can’t. This includes the purchase of software for making video tutorials, like the Vuhdo and Grid tutorials that I promised. I need $40 to purchase the software and so that is what I’m currently accepting donations for. The email address displayed after you click the donate button is my default email address that I used to register for paypal. Rest assured, none of this money is going to me for anything but what the drive is for, or towards the website. I want to make clear that any donations are not for me. They are for the site. Here’s my game plan:
1. Gather up enough donations to purchase Fraps (however long this may take)
2. Once Fraps is purchased, begin gathering donations for 1 year of hosting and domain name reservation costs
3. Once that money is gathered, purchase the .com and migrate the blog over to it. Ideally this site would have the blog itself, forums and more features that are yet to be implemented/shared.
During all of this, I’ll be working mostly on content for the blog. First and foremost is getting into a semi-regular schedule of posting. I’d like to have 2 or 3 full articles go up a week, however when school starts I may only be able to commit to 2 full articles for sure. My definition of a full article is like this post or this post. Smaller posts will be going up as well around the bigger ones. I’d like to develop at least one more column, if not two, that make regular appearances. Ideally, as time goes along, I’d also like to broaden the scope of the blog into healing and then other classes as well. Shaman will always be the main content offered here, but I’d like to be able to share my opinions and expertise on other classes and situations in WoW.
So Donate please, if you’d like to see video tutorials for addons and other fun things!
To those who have subscribed in any way or bookmarked the blog, thank you so very much, I hope you enjoy the content that I produce in the future. And to the feed readers: I’m working on it I promise!
