For once, it’s my turn.
To start things off, I mean.
Let me share something about myself, to all you fortunate people. I love stories. I love hearing how things start, I love how they eventually end, and I love all the juicy stuff in the middle.
I love seeing how things develop, and I appreciate the little intricacies.
For example, one of my favourite movies is “The Good, the Bad and the Ugly.” It has a lot of little expressions, facial ones that last only a second… but tell a great deal about a character. The last 15 minutes of the movie in particular has a lot of these moments, and the entire story is worth seeing just for that part of the film.
But, in the end, a story ends how it began. There’s a reason for everything that happens in a good story. It may be twisted, cruel, unexpected, or right on track. Either way, the reasons make sense.
From all this comes the beginning. The start, the little line you begin a race and your heart begins pumping. Your sweat starts running down your forehead, and you wipe a bit off with the back of your hand, only to smear it all over your face. Then, Bang, off you go.
So, for everyone out there… I’d like to know how you began your blogging career.
For me, I had been reading many blogs for many months at this point, and I had become sick of the forums. The incessant crying, insulting, and whining had driven me mad, and I stopped really reading them and posting in them.
Then, I sat down one day. I was reading BRK‘s website, and something clicked. I looked at my roomate and said, “You know what? I’m going to start a blog. About WoW.” He said something along the lines of “Cool Beans” and “I’m sure you’ll do well.” So, I sat down, signed on Blogspot, and made a new website. I spent a good 5-6 hours getting the design just right, and then I realized… I needed a name. After some brainstorming(Terrible, terrible ideas… ElfTard, Roflmahcopter, among others…) I just started ramming random words together. I came up with Slow Wolf, and it stuck with me.
The idea of a really fat wolf trying to catch someone made me laugh, and the Slow Wolf was born.
That’s the beginning of my story.
I am going to tag everyone who reads my blog, with some notables: Pike, Rilgon, Faulsey, BRK, and Drotora. The 5 of you are a daily part of what I read, and I would love to hear why you all started your careers in blogging especially.
Although some chapters end, some of ours are just beginning.
