Weekend Update 7/15 – CORN!
Living in the Midwest (Ohio) and growing up out in the country it’s hard not to like corn. Its basically it’s own food group. We weren’t farmers for a living, but with 40 acres, we always had a nice big garden with lots of corn. I’m sure there are folks here and there that are born with a genetic defect such that they don’t like corn. I am certainly not one of them – in fact fresh cooked corn on the cob is one of my favorite things. This time of year, my diet will consist mainly of corn and fresh tomatoes. I am very regular, ;-).
So yesterday at my wife’s family picnic, I got the first corn of the season – cooked in their husks in a pot of boiling water over a fire. So that’s really the biggest update from the weekend, lol.
We saw a new record last Thursday, and I don’t mean the DJIA. No, with an article on WoWInsider.com about my Gem Research Center, this blog saw it’s all time, single day page views record shattered getting 2,238 views. I really appreciate the exposure from the WoWInsider folks as it makes me think there is some value to the gem page. I have yet to get a single comment on it though, so I really don’t have a sense as to whether it’s helping you or not. Obviously, if the stats stay active on the page, then people are coming back, so I’ll keep an eye on it. I also found some other good gem sites whose links I’ll be adding to mine very shortly.
Lastly, I became aware of two new Druid blogs over the last few days – both non-feral. Finally, some insight and discussion for you balance and resto druids.
The first is Resto4LIfe, a balance/resto druid blogger by the name of Phaelia. Phaelia looks like she’s (he’s???) been blogging for a while and has lots of great information on the blog, which Amanna heartily approves of. Who couldn’t love a blog that has spreadsheets, charts and equations? This blog looks to be a fantastic resource for any balance/resto druid and I heartily recommend you check it out.
If you’re looking for a pure Balance insight, then check out Fiordhraoi’s (yea, I can’t pronounce it either. Neither can BRK) Balance of Power blog. This blog is just getting started, but there is already some good stuff there. Plus, who wouldn’t want to read a blog written by a pure Balance Moonkin who is a guild leader? Good stuff – Amanna approved.
That’s it for now. I’m posting this early on Sunday morning, so if anything good happens tonight, I’ll update to let you know. I hope you had a good weekend, and you’re not too grumpy now that it’s Monday morning.
