I don’t get as much time to check out my feedreader as much as I like. But every once in a while, when I have time, I’ll pop open Google Reader. Sometimes I’ll see a post title that catches my eye which makes me zero in on it.
Here’s one of the points Ess offers:
2. Whisper them every time they log in.
So, this person that has been whispering me the second that I log in has been doing this for the past several days. ReallyÃ¢â‚¬Â¦ is it necessary to whisper me every single day? I have gotten the picture Ã¢â‚¬â€ I know they want me to join their guild. IÃ¢â‚¬â„¢m always polite about the recruiting part, and tell them I appreciate it, but remind them that I plan to stay with my guild. (Are they hoping to wear me down?)
Also, theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re usually asking me to heal something at that moment for them. Because they ask me every day, I find myself much less inclined to run with them. I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t want to do anything to encourage this behavior. If you were hoping to build a relationship with someone, would you really call them every single night and ask them to do something? Hopefully not. It sends bad signals, suggesting that you are high maintenance. This is a definite turn off. It makes me wish there were some sort of invisibility setting so they couldnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t see me when I logged in.
I can’t say I’ve ever experienced this stalking behavior. I’d get a lot of additions onto friends lists and I do get my share of messages when I do log on. But it hasn’t happened as much since the debut of expansion. Maybe the tanks or DPS just got tired of waiting for me to say yes and moved onto other healers instead. That’s okay. I prefer to test the waters anyway.
I gotta say, I really like Ess’s style and post here.
In the spirit of
single’s awareness Valentine’s day coming up in a little under a week, I’m issuing a challenge to WoW bloggers to write a valentine’s themed post. Here’s a few post ideas and themes that you’re welcome to use. By all means, feel free to come up with your own! I’ll feature a few pieces that caught my eye next week (if I have any takers). I think I found my sweet spot. I should come out to Waves more often. London Fog seems to be the fuel for my blogging engine.
