The in-game Twitter connection is pretty nice. (You can also access it directly with the /share command.) I like it for posting screenshots and misc updates.
Twitter definitely relieves any posting needs here. I initially made my Twitter account just so I could follow people and things and have a nice feed of stuff to read. Now I post. I do keep my non-game self and gamer-self separate. https://twitter.com/Kheldul is the one you should follow.
Twitter of course doesn't handle long exposition. That said, I've been leading technology at a startup for the past 14 months and I don't have a lot of time for technical research, theory-crafting, or wild speculation. I worked 65 hours -- not including travel time -- Monday through Friday. Then I worked six hours over the weekend. That said, I enjoy other's hard theory-crafting labors as the quick route to victory.
I am most likely going to be coming to Blizzcon. Ticket TBD. I've been playing wow since day one -- and many Blizz games before it. This will be my first. I'm not a convention-goer. I'm a bit of a closet gamer-geek. I also hate Hate HATE lines. So I may need adult beverages.
I still login often. Usually a couple times a day. I've only got four level 100s. I still raid approximately three days a week. If we can't get 20 raiders we'll probably stop at least one -- maybe two -- of those nights. We don't have any gear left to upgrade in Heroic BRF except off Heroic Blackhand. As of this writing we don't have him down yet ... and we only need one more Blast Furnace kill for the port to him. I enjoy Heroic Blackhand. I like the balance of damage in/out and I have the demolisher kiting job in P2.
My daughter (age 12) really likes warcraft. I have only let her play four times so far. I'm concerned she'll become engrossed by it. (Like I am.) She reads each and every quest. She remembers people's names and learns the lore. She enjoys the appearance of everything much more than me. It's interesting to see. For now she's on my account. I toss her some gold and fun items.
