(probably) final post

As you’ve all probably noticed, I’ve not written much.  Mostly, that’s because I quit playing World of Warcraft.

No, it’s not a bad game.  No, it’s not a refutation or a complaint or anything else.  I just got tired of playing.  In fact the only reason I’d continued was that my daughter was still playing.  About a month and a half ago she decided she, too, wasn’t having fun and quit.

Will I play another MMORPG?  Someday, maybe.  I have more projects and things to do than I have time, however.  And one of the things I’ve discovered since quitting is that I’m getting things done – things that were lingering on either my wife’s honey-do or my wanna-do list.  That’s… pretty nice.  Do I miss the folk with whom I visited regularly?  Some.  But most of the ones I really liked?  I got their email, and in a couple of cases their phone numbers, and we still visit.

Will I complain of it?  Will I call others out for wasting their time?  HECK no.  If it’s fun, keep at it.

It just quit being fun.

I will be leaving this up for quite some time.  I figure parts of the blog posts I made will be relevant at least to WoTLK, maybe more.  If the hits approach zero, I’ll consider dropping the blog entirely.

If you think there’s an article or two that should be saved, you’re welcome to copy.  If you do, please attribute.  I’m not going to earn any money, but I do appreciate the credit.

It was a good time, folks, but, well-

Go have fun.  I will.

  2. Adios, Kirk. :(

  3. Good luck with everything, Kirk, you will be greatly missed!

  4. I’ve said it before, but repeating it won’t make it less true: You have been one of the shining lights of WoW blogdom, not to mention the major contributions you’ve made to the development and betterment of many Priest characters in the game–including, in very large measure, my own.

    Your absence will create a void, but you won’t be forgotten.

    You’ve made the right call, I know, and I admire you the more for it. Best wishes, warmest regards, and Godspeed.
