Today’s post was going to be about something I’m not very proud of, in fact so much so that I’ve down right deleted it and replace it with this post. Some of you, some of my readers, followers will think I cave in. That I let someone bully me and pretty much just didn’t do the right thing.
Which is not the case, there comes a time when you’re just out for yourself, to undo a wrong or simply to cause drama that isn’t needed. Maybe… I’m just too nice of a guy to be a real ass hole like that. Because let me tell you all something here and I’ll tell you what the post was about so you’re not all confused.
The post was about my affiliate link to Zygor guide, what followed was me seeing a tweet by Jim (@PowerWordGold) saying he didn’t like the growing trend that bloggers where using hidden affiliate links when they should be using a real link. In fact it was this post I posted on the 9th of this week. That is where you’ll find the link I had made.
Now I was under the idea that Zygor guide was a respected Leveling Guide and there would be no harm in me putting that link in, it wasn’t a random link, I wasn’t trying to sell anything. I was simply saying, hey I can do this, and this is how I do it. Is it wrong that I made some money if someone happen to click the link AND bought the guide? No I don’t think so. Truth is I haven’t seen any sales from it anyways..
The post was more of just a jealous rant about this and that and in truth, who the heck am I to really step on someone else like that? The more I started to think about it, the more I started to get this bad taste in my mouth.. and that is just not who I am. The post was just pure bull crap and if I had release it.. it would have destroyed any credibility I may have right now.
That is pretty much it, I wasn’t proud of the road it would have taken me. Some bloggers and they know who they are.. may think I’m being a big time chicken… but in truth I’m the bigger man. I’m being something called a man at least from where I came from it is. What it came down too, your word vs my word and those kind of fights never go anywhere.
In fact, it wouldn’t have changed anything but destroy this blog and my very own credibility. Which is important to me, this blog and my readers are important to me. I don’t know if you guys know this but all of you, from gold makers as well-known as Jim, Faid, Cold, Alto, The Gold Queen to the small ones, and there are SO many of you, I never could name you all.
I started this blog because I wanted to prove to myself I could make a successful blog. It had nothing to do with money, in fact what money I do make will go right back into the costs and if I get over that I would give the money away in some shape or form. Maybe that is hard to believe, you know it’s always about the money in the end. I have to live too you know, long other things.
Right now, I’m moving.. by the time you’ve all read this I’ll have been on the road with no access to my blog or email, Twitter, Facebook or anything. I’ve met a wonderful woman who has changed my life.. in fact I don’t even know if I’ll be able to come back to blogging.. I’m more than likely end up missing out on Mist of Pandaria Launch. Do you all understand what that means?
A Journey’s End
For two months… going forward for 5 months now I’ve been working, writing post, preparing not only myself but trying to share with you all so you can make bank come MoP… and yet.. I might miss it because I made a live changing decision. Right now I’m not working, that is why I’ve had so much free time.. too much if you ask me.
I’ll be getting a full-time job to support myself and my friend I’m moving in with. Life is going to be very different..maybe I might get one day out of the week.. a few hours.. to sit down and play the game I’ve played for over 5 years now. It’s how life is, some of us are lucky.. and others are not. That is the truth.
What I had to say in that post.. was stupid, pointless and would have hurt everything I worked for and for what? Nothing.. no one gains anything out of drama and pointing fingers. I hope those of you who read this understand, be angry with me, rage remove me from your blogroll.. unfollow me.. call me names. In the end.. I’m a hunter, I’m a gold maker and I’m an honest person and I’m no cheat.
There wont be any more post this week, I had posts about professions I wanted to write.. but I sort of need access to the beta which I wont have. Maybe I’ll get a day to do this.. and I’ll get some content out to you all.. but please don’t count on it. I’ve made it so everyone who posts comments won’t have to be approved.. I hope the settings are working right so that you can all keep the discussion up.
If this ends up being my last post… there just isn’t enough white space for me to thank everyone.. this post I wrote a month ago is a good start. If this truly is the end for me.. in wow blogging.. I hope that the information I was able to put out, both for hunters and gold makers.. becomes timeless and that maybe it’ll help you all make millions, get that hunter to 90 and have some damn fun. Until next time, remember you’re all pro like that.
