The Secret to Success

Today’s post is a short one, I want to let everyone know that chances of me playing in the next two or three weeks will likely not happen. As a result I won’t have access to the beta or live game. The reason is I’m moving, today in fact I’m already on the bus as this post goes out heading out. I’m not sure how much time I’ll have to really write and given out good solid content.

First off, I feel horrible about not being able to give you all content. In the last two months I’ve been putting out good content everyday, I haven’t missed a day. I know so of you have disagreed with some of my opinions.

I’m okay with this simply because I feel that is what make a good blog, it’s what creates good discussion and makes you all think. Which is what I really want. That is why I want to sort of give you all some hidden tips and the secret to the success I’ve had running Hunter Mastery.

Being Honest…

I’ll never come out and say that I’m better than you, that my blog is better than yours. Nor will I ever say I’m just a better gold maker then you, a hunter or a person. I live by a rule, this applies to how I play the game, both the auction house, real life as well.

Treat others the way you wish to be treated.

In that respect, I will say that I’m a kind person, an honest person. I’ve never taken away from anyone, I’ve never caused drama and I’ve never done anyone wrong. I have made mistakes in the past, I’ve screwed up and been the first person to admit that and quick to fix my mistakes. That is what a MAN does, that is what a human being does. Being honest to your fellow human.

Cutting yourself Short..

I tend to do this to myself, I view my work as horrible some times, like I could write better. And you know there are the trolls. No matter how hard you try they wont like you. I’ve had comments on Reddit where people complain about how I write, like they don’t understand and think English must be my second language or something like that.

The truth is, I’m not the best person when it comes to writing. In fact it was one of my least favorite subjects in High School and I’ve always had a problem with grammar and spelling. Does that make me stupid? Maybe.. I try to write as if I’m talking, what would I say if I sat down with someone and talked about something? Some of you who have been reading my blog over the last two months have taken notice of this.

I know many bloggers tend to write more professional and as if they are writing a guide, I tend to write more down to earth, using simple words. Mostly because I myself am a simple person, but I want to also feel as if people understand what I’m saying and not be made to feel stupid.

With it all said and done, I promise you… if you follow your heart.. treat others with kindness and don’t cheat, work hard be honest.. even if someone disagrees with you. Do not fall, be a leader for yourself.

I think anyone who has read my blog, with my 10 items you shouldn’t stockpile post that I don’t really care if people think I’m awesome. I know some on twitter have tweeted saying I’m a guru of Hunters… what an honor… serious. I’m just some guy who loves playing hunters.. nothing more.

  1. Good rules to live by, definitely. I’ll admit, I wish I posted as often as you. Pretty much any given afternoon, I can open up my Google Reader and find something new from you waiting for me. You seem to have the same mindset I do, of only making a post when you’ve thought of something new to add to the discussion. You just manage to find those at least once a day, rather than once a week if I’m lucky like I do.

    Ah, well, one of the things I love about this community is that it takes all kinds. You’ve got people who post at least a little something every day, like you. At the other hand, you have people like Faid, whose posts are few and far between (but tend to be very informative as well…no disrespect against her, as she’s actually one of my favorites). I think I’m comfortable in the middle, especially knowing things will likely pick up for me as MoP gets closer and the game starts feeling a bit less like a job than it has lately.

  2. ..I’ve written a few game guides, most recent being three class guides for a game called Bloodline Champions. Let me say, every time it comes down to hitting the post button, after tearing through your content, making sure you’ve spelled every word correct, listed pro advice opposed to noob advice, making sure you are current in your advice, cut out run in sentences just like the one I’m typing, hitting that post button has always been a large bag of crazy emotions.

    Who is going to ridicule me for this guide? I know that my prose is weak compared to others, is this going to make my guide unreadable? Will anyone learn anything from this? Will I even get a comment, no matter how harsh?

    To be honest, I view the written or spoken word as only a vehicle to my thoughts. As long as you get my message, I don’t care if it was a bumpy ride or smooth sailing.

    On the topic of time:content, every guide I’ve written (8 at most) has been just like turning on a faucet. Maybe at some unnoticeable sub conscience thinking, I put it all together, I don’t know. But when the need strikes me, I usually just sit and get it all out of me.

    I really hope everything works out for you unreal life. I had to uproot myself before, moving from coast to coast (USA), and it was one of the most frightening things I’ve ever done. It was an awesome thing though, and my life is unexplainabley better for it.

    Hope to read your blog again soon!
