In August of 2014, I started a Wizard101 blog. I didn’t post regularly and my interest in it tapered out after a couple of weeks. Looking back, I think it’s because I didn’t have a focus for it. I wanted it to be unique, but decided that everything there was to say about it has already been said by someone else, and besides, I’m not really all that involved in the community outside of playing regularly, how was I going to build an audience when there are all the official sites?
Then shortly before Thanksgiving of 2015, of I found a Wizard101 blog I’d never heard of. (Wizard101 Basics for Beginners) She’s been posting regularly for a while now and is still active! (A lot of unofficial sites are no longer active.) After looking at her blog, I realized that I DO have plenty of unique ideas. I have plenty of opinions, especially with the newest update. So…I’m going to try again. (Thank you for inspiring me!)
This time, I’m not going to worry about standing out or about what other people will think. This time, this is for me. 🙂
Anyway, I’ve been playing Wizard101 for a couple of years now and I love it. I have 8 active characters and probably a dozen “on the side” characters. (I love creating new characters and hate deleting them!) My main wizard on my main account is Emma DreamWeaver, Exalted Sorcerer. She’s level 103. I love playing as a balance character. My main wizard on my second account is Suri WinterSong. She’s Ice and is level 73. I quest Suri with my Fire, Jenna, and two of my best in-game friend’s characters (Daniel Hawk and Cameron Hawk). (Both of us duel-account regularly.) My other characters aren’t as active as those three are, so I’ll introduce them as they come up.
I’ve also recently started a Wizard101 YouTube channel: Dorm Rooms with Emma. Spiral: A to Z will have posts relating to “Dorm Rooms with Emma” but won’t be the primary focus. Actually, the focus will be a little bit of everything 🙂
Unrelated to Wizard101, I’m a college student studying American Sign Language. If everything goes according to plan, I’ll be a certified interpreter in a year and a half. As a result, I am pretty busy, but I find the time to play as regularly as I can. 🙂
