Blog reorganisation

I'm reorganising my blogging a little.

First, I'm splitting off my Diablo 3 blogging into a separate blog: http://d3analyst.blogspot.com/

It makes sense to do this for several reasons. I want my D3 blog to be a commercial blog with adverts. This blog is mainly about MMOs. I want my D3 blogging to eventually lead on to more advanced forms of communication such as podcasting or Youtube or a gold guide.

I'll continue to maintain Stabbed Up and will post about MMOs as the enthusiasms come and go. At the moment I'm just playing Eve in maintenance mode, otherwise it's all Diablo. I'm playing a lot of D2 and planning a lot for D3.

Next I'm disabling anonymous comments. I simply get far too much spam and it's a pain. Having said that I've had some excellent anonymous comments and I don't want to discourage you. If you've posted a quality comment here anonymously please don't feel unwelcome, just make an account somewhere and keep sharing your opinions.

And let me take this opportunity to thank the blogging community in general and my readers in particular for your support over the years. The number of hits seems quite staggering to me and the quality of the comments is a delight. I had no idea when I started blogging how much I'd grow to appreciate the dialogue. You're all quite wonderful.

Note that this isn't an exit post, in fact I think I'll be blogging a LOT more although for now that's mainly going to be on my new blog.



  1. Good luck with that new blog! it seems like D3 is keeping you very occupied at the moment! ;)
    I can sadly not comment much on that subject, although reading articles on it is still interesting. nice to hear you'll keep posting on a more general note too, though.

    btw, did you see blogger has threaded commenting now? or maybe you like the separate comment page, in which case nvm. :)

  2. Adding your new site to my blogroll. I have faith it will kick &@$.

  3. Thanks for your kind words both of you.

    I'll look into threaded commenting.

  4. My interest in D3 is, well... very small. I wish you the best with it, though; it seems like there's room and even demand for some great guides for it. It should be a fun puzzle to figure out, too. :)

  5. I would like to thank you for the efforts you have put in writing this blog. I’m hoping
    the same high-grade web site post from you in the future also. Actually your
    creative writing abilities has encouraged me to get my own web site going now.
    Really blogging is spreading its wings and growing fast. Your write up is a great example.

  6. Yep it seems sensible to separate my MMO thoughts from my Diablo 3 thoughts.

    And yes, it's certainly fun figuring stuff out in it :)

  7. I've adjusted the comment display. Thanks for the tip, Syl!
