Highlight Posts of 2009


You didn’t think I was going to finish out the year without the traditional “Best of 2009” post, did you? Here’s the top posts of 2009 based on your views, comments, and tweets.

On healing
On gaming and society
On guild management
On recruiting
On raiding
On blogging

To other WoW bloggers, I’d love to see you compile a list of your favourite posts that you have written over the past year and don’t be afraid to post a link in the comments to it below.

Have a safe and happy new year! I would share my New Years party stories, but chances are, this Dwarf would not remember. There was that one year where I woke up half naked with a Tauren beside me and a banana…

  1. Thank you for mentioning my guest post, Matt. I certainly appreciate the acknowledgement and the fact that you let me post that here. I’m glad to have been able to contribute to WoM.

    And I’m glad you mentioned my favorite WoM post this year: The Purple Kodo. I bookmarked that one when I first started seriously on my blog in May and read it probably a dozen times before I really dug into my own. There are a lot of good pointers, and I hope I’ve done a pretty decent job of implementing them myself. Saying that WoM was one of my blog’s inspirations would be an understatement, so it was a great way to see inside how a successful blog is run.

    Heh, I was a highlight of the year. Mayhaps I should write more.

  9. I know some people feel like they shouldn’t do a year in review post because “everyone else” does, but I like ’em… especially if it’s a blog I’m new to reading. I remember you asking on Twitter about this, but I can’t remember if I tweeted the link or just told you I’d posted one already.

    • @Syrana: Yeah and that’s the wrong way to think if you’re trying to be unique and do something different. Bloggers become unique by doing something no one else is doing (versus avoiding the trend and not doing something).

  10. I quoted Syd’s “Archetypes of the Female Gamer: Revisited” article in a term paper I wrote on gender and technology. <3

  11. I tend not to brag too much, and am quietly hammering away at my blog recording strat and putting down my experiences running a guild.

    But I am pretty proud of this post:

    Thanks for a great blog Matticus and crew.

  12. I’m honored to see so many of my posts on the list. It is my hope that, when I get through the next few weeks of job interviews, I can return to blogging a bit. I’m also glad someone could cite my stuff for a term paper!
