Blogversary!!

blogversary

Wow, I can’t believe it’s been a whole year since I started this blog!  When I first started blogging, I really had no plan in mind, I just wanted to write about my transmog stuff.  I must say I am very happy with the direction it’s gone in, and transmog is still as fun as it was back then!  I was looking over my very first post, and I got a good chuckle out of the last line:

“I couldn’t be happier to be back, well maybe if they allowed 2-handed maces to be transmogged into 2-handed swords, but I’ll take my gun-to-bow feature and just be quiet about it!”

Hehe, pretty much exactly one year later, I finally can 😀  Back then I really didn’t have a whole lot to blog about, and after I had posted the few mogs I had done, I wasn’t sure I had much else to say.  It wasn’t until after the WoW Factor show came to Proudmoore for a second time that I really took off. Inspired by the awesome Ironyca, I started a series of ‘mog-spotting’ posts that turned into Fly Draenei Friday.  FDF is my favorite part of my blog!  Being a finalist in that show also gave me the confidence to start posting more mogs I had in my MogIt wishlist.

I am super thankful to all the people who read the blog.  Who would have thought my draenei obsession would be interesting?  Just for some blogversary fun, I thought I’d highlight my most-read posts!

#3 – Jade Monk / Black Ninja Monk

I had thought that monk transmogs might be a popular topic, but holy cow do people love some draenei monks!  These two posts are pretty close in views, so I’m calling it a tie.  I love these two mogs, and I’m super happy other people do too!

 

#2 – How to Scale Shoulders in WoW Model Viewer

Holy giant shoulders!!  I first heard about WoW Model Viewer when I asked wonderful Kamalia how she got those lovely white backgrounds in her transmog pics.  I messed around with it a little, but the giant shoulder size bugged me.  When I started making my entries for the Mogolympics, I really wanted to do fun ‘themed’ pictures, so I decided to give WMV another shot.  I couldn’t find very good information on adjusting the shoulder sizes, so once I figured it out I wanted to help others make it work too 🙂

 

#1 – Random Mogness – Hunter Mogs

I joined Twitter last summer as a way to meet new bloggers and other Draenei Enthusiasts, and I have met awesome people who are both!  One of them is Laeleiweyn.  At some point after I did this post on hunter mogs, she recommended it to WoW Hunter’s Hall to add to their transmog guide, and they did!!  I’m still surprised at how many views this has gotten as a result, thanks Lae!

 

Well, there you have it!  Thanks again everyone and here’s to another year of staying fly! 😉
