More stupid questions


So you might remember a couple posts ago I talked about being invited by those Klout people to answer their members’ questions about blogging — A WISE MOVE ON THE PART OF KLOUT, I AM SURE YOU WILL AGREE. (Huh. I initially typoed “Klout” as “Lout”…can you imagine a place called “” wanting my advice?) I answered a bunch of questions for you, like I showed you all here, and even though I never heard anything back from them, I’m sure they appreciated my Warchieferous insight, because lo and behold, they’re at it again.

Yes, the Klout people have sent me another batch of questions to answer from their members, and hey, I couldn’t deny you people of my insight, so here we go.


What do you think are the best blogging tools and why?

I’m very big on the computer and keyboard, because I find paper and quill just make for a lot of busywork as far as distributing the posts to all my LOYAL READERS AND MINIONS. That and my hand cramps up a lot that way.  Actually my hand cramps up a lot when I’m online anyway, but the less said about that the better. (HI, GREATMOTHER.)


What’s the easiest way to live blog an event and why?

Oh man, have you come to the right place. When the event begins, start typing. Hit “update” every now and then. When it’s over, stop. Also, try to make sure you’re not within range of Nozdormu’s why-fly, because timey whimey really fucks up your chronology. Also make sure your tech goblin actually KEEPS VARIAN THE FUCK OUT THIS TIME BECAUSE WTF.


Do you think that it is important for businesses to have active blogs? Why or why not?

I think it’s much more important for businesses to have inactive blogs. Because that sends the message that you’re way too fucking busy doing important shit like, you know, BUSINESS, to waste your day dicking around blogging.


Who are the three best bloggers and why?

Me, myself, and I. Dumbass. (Dumbass would be you. Not one of the three best bloggers. Which are me. Because I’m at least as pimp as any three other bloggers.) (Dumbass.)


KEEP ’EM COMING, KLOUT. You’re welcome.

Also, while I’ve got everyone’s attention and I’m in the mood to answer questions, it occurs to me that I haven’t done a mailbag in quite a while, so let me encourage you all to write in with any questions you might have for your Warchief. To make it a little easier, in fact, I’m even going to try out this new doohicky that Spazzle says he build into the blog, so you folks can have an easier time sending in your letters…

Well looky there. Shiny.

Also on the topic of receiving things from my LOYAL READERS AND MINIONS, I just got a little goodie the other day that I just had to share with you all. Those of you who follow me on Twitter (and for those of you who DON’T — WHY THE FUCK NOT?) might have noticed a few days ago I had a little back-and-forth with Sylvanas and Lor’themotherfucker. Based on some of the…um…discussion we were having, loyalreaderandminion @RakaelTowers put together this little gem and sent it along. I thought you peeps would enjoy:




[A quick(ish) OOC note: Apologies — once again — for becoming so inactive with the blog lately. The last few weeks have been keeping me very busy with work, and even when I’ve had some down time, I often haven’t had the mental energy to assemble something worth posting. This has been compounded by the fact that blog continuity has reached a point at which the next post HAS to be a comic that I’ve had planned for a while. (Unless I decide to try to do one more rap battle. Which I might. Don’t try me.) (Teasing preview: Dontrag and Utvoch feature heavily. Plus an old mailbag friend makes a first-time comic-form appearance.) (No, not Bob.) (Parentheses are fun, aren’t they?) I’m doing my best to get the comic finished soon, but I don’t want to promise a specific day and then fall short; I’m hoping I can count on your continued patience. As always, I appreciate everyone’s interest and feedback, and I’ll be working as best I can to get the story rolling again before everybody gets too sick of waiting.]

Because you asked for it...

Drinking coffee while reading this blog is dangerous to the health of your computer. *wipes coffee drops off the screen while giggling*

((When I saw the picture, my mind imagined Garrosh saying that while drawn wearing a tutu. >_>))

(( Don’t worry about the delays, Avery. Things will get done when they get done, and real life comes first, always. I mean sure, I’d love to have a new post every day, but you can’t write the blog if they turn off your power! ))

In my experience, staying away from Nozdormu in general is probably the best route. I’m never sure when he’s going to go all black and infinite on me. Or send me to the past/future to have a heart-to-heart with myself again. Wierd.

Also: Garry? SO. CUTE. That face just wants hugs.

No, it’s Chromie that sends you off to meet with yourself. Chromie’s a little weird like that. Chromie once had my five-minutes-in-the-future self help me with a task, then turned around and had me help my five-minutes-ago self with the very same task. Why Chromie didn’t whistle up another of the bums what was standing around ogling Alexstrasza, I’ll never know.

Incidentally, which pronoun do you use with Chromie? I mean, Chromie claims to be a dude, but spends most of the time mincing about as a lady gnome, so should I say he or she? Freaky…

True, but I figure that since they were at the Bronze dragonshrine, I thought that the Noz was somehow involved. Wierd time hand-wobbling and whatnot (You’d think the Aspect of Time would be able to better explain his job to the orc I was with, but maybe it’s just a problem he has with orcs). Still, I get chills whenever I see dragons and sand in the same place.

I always just thought Chromie was supposed to be a tomboy. I mean, blood elves do that (as in some of us care less about our hair than the Regent Lord does!) so why can’t dragons!

@Garrosh Hellscream: ((Up until the mention in the WoW magazine, you would have been right to believe that Chromie was a male bronze dragon. It’s another one of those headaches from Blizzard’s lore department.))
