I've been waiting all day, and now it's here! Let's see how bad they fuck it up.
I think after it's over, I'll be playing Pillars Of Eternity for a while, so I may not post again until very late. Heh.
So, I got some WoW in today. Maybe not as much as I would have liked, though. I did my garrison stuff, and I did Icecrown Citadel for some gold. I also tried a Highmaul raid. Unfortuately, I actually watched a cutscene, and by the time it was done, most of the rest of the raid had moved towards the next boss. Unfortunately, I didn't know the way, and I ended up stuck in a group of mobs, and died. I ended up just leaving the raid group after that. I was pretty discouraged by it, so I basically finished up after that. Maybe I should have tried one of the other raids. I don't know. At least I got to see the beginning of it. And next time, I'll know not to watch cutscenes. After that, I played Pillars of Eternity for a while. I did a couple quests, and have spent a bunch of time doing the one to clean out the ruins under the stronghold. I'm down to level 5 at this point. I cleaned out the starting area, so I have a foothold at least. That was where I finished off for the day. I also got a couple more things built in the stronghold. One was already being worked on, and one was a new thing. Well, I guess repaired is a better word for the stuff I did. Heh. I know it doesn't sound like a whole lot of gaming, but I spent many hours merrily gaming away. I don't know how much I'll actually do tomorrow. Tomorrow is Wrestlemania, so I'll be spending time watching it and the pre-show, and all that starts at 5. At least, I assume I will. It depends on how WWE Network wants to cooperate. It's my plan to, at least. For the rest of the night, I'm just going to do some LP watching. Seems like a good idea to me. Heh.
Well, today was a pretty good day. I spent some time watching an LP, I watched Monday's Raw, and I spent a good bit of time in Pillars Of Eternity. I got past that fight on my first try today. Having done that, that means that I got my stronghold! Woo! Now I have to work on upgrading it, a little bit at a time. I'll have some good fun doing that. I did some questing around, and found another fight that I can't handle, but is part of a quest. After a few failed attempts, I decided to go do a few other things first, maybe gain another level, and see how it goes later. I don't know that just one more level is going to help, but it can't hurt. The problem is that there's just too many guys at once, I get swarmed, and the party goes down pretty fast. I'm not sure how I'll get past it yet, but I will somehow. After I finished up with that for the night, I went and did my garrison stuff in WoW, but that's all I did. Tomorrow is Saturday, and so that also makes it WoW day. So I will be spending at least a few hours doing stuff in there. I'm not sure what all I'll do yet, but I'm sure I can come up with a few things, at least. For the rest of the night, I plan on watching a little bit more of the LP I'm on, and then after that, I'll hit the hay. Not too exciting, I know, but it will be good. Heh.
So, I've been going over stats and thinking. I suppose it's more accurate to say that I went over stats last night, and have spent the day thinking about them, instead of doing something. First and foremost was my stats for this here website. They didn't seem too bad, at least not a first. Then I dug a little deeper into them. As it turns out, I'm pretty much the only one that actually looks at the site. Me and search engine crawlers. And apparently a couple people that are trying to get into my administrator panel. It kinda makes me wonder what I'm doing here. If nobody is reading, why should I even bother to keep posting? Why should I bother to post my WoW videos if no one is watching them? It was very disappointing to learn that last night that I've been talking into a vacuum. I'm disappointed enough that I considered taking the whole thing down. Hell, I still may. It's funny how all these other blogs and stuff get super popular, but I just can't. Maybe I should talk about more innane shit than I already do? That probably wouldn't help any. I just don't know what to do. It's not like I can just will myself into popularity.
Next thing to talk about? Twitter. I have a whopping 23 followers, and I'm not sure how many of them are bots. Hell, there may be some inactive accounts, too. 23. And not one of them ever speaks to me. Well, what would you expect from a bunch of bots, really? I don't know why I don't have more followers. I sure post enough on there. I guess I don't hashtag enough or something like that? I know that there are some people that I would like to have following me, but I doubt that's going to happen any time soon. So, I guess I'm talking into a vacuum on there, too. Once in a while I'll actually get a reply from someone that I say something to, but not very often. I feel like I should change my bio again, but I doubt that's going to help anything. So, Twitter is something else that I'm not sure I want to continue with. Don't get me wrong, I love my feed, I just don't like the whole silence thing.
Next up? YouTube. I know I talked about this the other day, but it bears repeating. I have very few views on my videos, and very little time watched. I wish I knew why. I mean, people seem to be able to find the videos. At least, if they're searching for Doom stuff, they should be able to, since that's all that's up right now. But again, nobody really wants to watch them. I've considered putting the WoW videos on there, and I'm going to be putting the WoW Leveling videos on there, since they will definitely not fit on the site. The Final Doom LP would go up there, too. Well, any LP I do would have to go on YouTube. But will anyone watch them? I just don't know. I know that at least some of them will get watched if I post them on SA, but I have to get over that whole being afraid thing first. I'm still up in the air on that one. But if my videos aren't getting watched, why do them? I imagine other people have this problem, too, but all I see is people with lots of views. More futility, I guess.
So what else is there to talk about? Twitch. Not that I have streamed in a while, but I have streamed quite a few times in the past. Of course, my streams are something else that generally don't get watched. I don't know why. I suppose maybe because I'm playing something that no one is interested in at the time? It doesn't help that sometimes my entry for game name gets blanked out and defaults to Untitled. But I've had several times that it hasn't been blanked out, either, and just don't have any viewers. Well, besides Auren, I suppose. Still, I'd like to stream more, I just have to get up the nerve to do it. I suppose if I just assume that no one is watching, then I won't have much problem with it.
So where am I going with all this? I don't know yet, I really don't. Part of me wants to just rip it all down. Just go dark, never to return. Part of me wants to just keep going and just hope that because I put something on the net that people will come. Of course, that seems to be what I'm doing now, and it's really not working. I suppose if I found some way to promote myself, then maybe it wouldn't be so bad, but I have no idea on how to go about that. I suppose that's something that I will have to try and look up at some point. So what happens in the short term? I suppose nothing. I suppose that I will sit here and continue to post, and continue to be too scared to do anything else. Maybe I'd feel better if I actually worked on some of this stuff. I just don't know at this point. I suppose it can't hurt to try. Well, it might.
So what am I going to do tonight? Not sure. Maybe play a game for a while. I haven't decided what yet. I was thinking about going and raiding in WoW, but I don't really feel like it right now. As for tomorrow, I have to go to the grocery, since I'm getting low on food. After that, I will probably end up playing Pillars Of Eternity for a while, since that's coming out tomorrow. I already have it pre-loaded, just have to wait for it to unlock. Maybe I'll stream it? It's a possibility. I suppose that might depend on how many other people are, which I would imagine would be quite a few. I'll think about it, though.
So, today was grocery day. That was not too much fun, especially the carrying them upstairs part. Made my knees hurt. Besides that, I got a call from Cable, and watched an LP. After that, I fired up the brand new game Pillars Of Eternity. It's a good game, hard though. I keep getting my ass kicked. I'm doing better now than I was, but I'm at a spot that I'm kinda stuck on. I decided to take a break for a while, and maybe come at it with a fresh perspective tomorrow. I spent quite a bit of time playing it, though it seems like Steam didn't keep track of my time played in the game. That kinda sucks. I'll live, but still, I would like to see it racking up time. Oh well. I think I may log in to WoW and do my garrison stuff quick, and then maybe do some more LP watching for the rest of the evening. Sounds like a good plan to me. Of course, I have to watch this week's Raw and Smackdown sometime before Sunday evening, so maybe I'll do that tomorrow? We'll see.
I think that's all I have for now. Heh.
Well, in Azeroth, at least. Since it was Tuesday, that means maintenance, and that raid locks are over for the week! Woo! I did almost all the Cata raids today and got a bunch of gold. Gold that I'll probably spend on upgrading stuff in the garrison. I still have a few things to go. I suppose that I should look into unlocking the pet menagerie at some point, as well. Besides the raids, I did a couple quests today. That seems like not a lot, but it took a bit of time to do all that. That's all I've done so far today as far as, well, anything goes, I guess. It's been a pretty quiet day.
Not sure if I'll do anything else tonight. It's getting kinda late, so...maybe not. I'm not sure. I ended up not doing anything last night, if I remember correctly. And the same will probably hold true for tonight, as well. Maybe I'll watch some wrestling or something. I did get mostly caught back up on current WWE stuff. I just have to watch this past Monday's Raw still, and then I'll be all set.
There have been a couple people on Twitter that have aggrivated me today. Nothing that I actually replied over, of course, but it was aggrivating, none the less. Sometimes I wish I could just speak up instead of clamming up, but I'm not good at that. You'd think that hiding behind a screen would be good enough, but it's not. I guess because I actually don't really hide behind my user name? Maybe I'm just not as big of an asshole as I think? Or that I want to be? I don't know. I just know that there have been better days in Twitterland for me than today. Maybe I should start unfollowing people.
Anyways, I think that's all I have for now.
