The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2015 annual report for this blog.
It feels weird to see that 2015 contained a post about beginning Warlords raiding, while at this point I’ve been inactive for a long time and don’t plan on raiding in Legion.
Also, thanks to Blessing of Kings for most of my referrals!
While I started off the year blogging strongly, I dropped off. I made 34 new posts here in 2015 counting this one.
My views per year are as follows. I’m not including 2011 because it was only partial.
- 2012: 5,969
- 2013: 10,181
- 2014: 6,376
- 2015: 4,793
I forgot that I was getting so many views for a while. Neat.

Here’s an excerpt:
600 people reached the top of Mt. Everest in 2012. This blog got about 5,900 views in 2012. If every person who reached the top of Mt. Everest viewed this blog, it would have taken 10 years to get that many views.

My first week with Diablo III | Blog | Game Boyz.
I posted a blog entry over on Game Boyz about Diablo III in general. While I usually only post at most once per day here, I’m not going to count this announcement. In fact, there’s a nice post about achievements in WoW and D3 scheduled to be posted at 8:00 tomorrow morning! Feel free to check out the blog at Game Boyz!
I’ve enjoyed blogging for a while but didn’t have a great place to write about WoW. I’ve had a website since elementary school, although it’s drifted from Geocities, to being hosted locally, to being commercially hosted. It was a never a blog but rather a location to store funny things and ideas mostly. In 2000 my site was renamed “WebPageless.” Shortly afterward I started the “Fuzzy Journal” as a parody of Live Journal because I disliked the idea of LJ. My opinion changed and that became the focus of my site. At that time I was coding everything by hand. In 2004 I upgrade to Movable Type, and that was the start of the “modern” WebPageless. In fact, I’ve lost most of the older content. Now I try to stay away from boring journal posts unless I did something interesting, but I still love writing.
How does this relate to this site? I wanted to share a ton of WoW screenshots, but it didn’t really seem to fit with WebPageless. Sure, WebPageless was already without focus, but I didn’t want to overrun it with screenshots, so I created a separate site using Movable Type. It was a flawed system, especially since I wanted to let guildies use it without logging into the actual site and being able to mess with it. I came up a zany approach using lots of e-mail forwarding and Flickr. Each person had their own e-mail address to which they’d e-mail screenshots. This would get autoforwarded to Flickr. Flickr used the Movable Type plugin to automatically post to the blog, and because each person had his or her own e-mail address, the blog would know who was posting it. But what if I wanted to talk about things without posting screenshots?
It seemed like I talked about World of Warcraft enough to make a completely separate blog, so that’s what I did. I was hoping that Mooglegem would post a lot too, but that’s rare! Anyways, that’s how Kor’kron 501st was born!
What is a Leap of Faith?
Is it trying something even though you’re not sure how it will work out, just because you have faith that it will?
Is it trusting in a priest to pull you to safety?
Is it annoyingly getting pulled into something harmful from a jerky priest? (Yes.)
Or, is it a blog to discuss World of Warcraft from the point of view of a priest and a mage who enjoy casual raiding, achievement hunting, and PVPing?
It’s the last one!
After realizing that a catch-all blog wasn’t the place to go into in-depth commenting on World of Warcraft, I decided to create Leap of Faith. A dedicated WoW blog also makes sense for me because I want to collaborate with Mooglegem also! Thank you to the one or two people who notice and read this!
