The Ads are Coming the Ads are Coming

Okay that title is a little pretentious, I’ve signed up for Amazon affiliate program. Meaning now when I recommend a product to you, if you follow the link and purchase that product from that link, I in turn earn a small commission off of the sale of that product.

Now if you follow the Trents like I do you’ll notice that they have moved on to a new lifestyle where they are using this kind of program to help cover some of their expenses. And I think that is great. For them, for me and for us.

Product placement is something I’ve done for a long time, just not to the degree that I am getting paid for it. I recommended movies, food, clothes, hell I think recently I started advertising a heater. Well that was for the TalkTiny2Me podcast, but you get the point. I talk about a lot of products that I’m excited about because they are products that I use and I do a lot of my shopping via Amazon so it seemed like a natural thing to try.

If there is a product that I buy I will am all for sharing it with you and hopefully will go to try it. Hopefuly, you like it and you keep using the link so I can continue to make a few cents on the dollar.

Here is the link to my Amazon “store” with a few of the products I keep in stock. I will be adding more as i can but running out of time for the day to work on this.

Resolutions 2014

Well it is that time of the new year where we all say we are going to do things and then don’t. Or do we.

Thanks Tobril

 

Well not here. Here we take time to review a few times during the year and see if we are on track and then there is a end of year review.

So last year i had 5 goals.

Focus more on work at work, an area where I feel I massively improved. I cut out forums and most other distractions. For all the good it ended up doing for me.

Add in more learning materials in my reading, this i was so so at best. My personal reading time waxed a waned but i was able to get some things in just not as much as I would have liked.

Leading, other then the Defense Guild i haven’t lead shit. That said raiding is mostly dead right now anyway so there is that.

Be more grateful when the loot gods favor anyone, here i think i made some fairly long strides. Heck just the other day Grim got some fat lootz and i was 90% happy for her, 5% jealous, 5% wondering if the item even worked.

Be more forgiving in game, while i think i have improved some i think i will keep this one on the list. I remember tilting hard and then rage quiting at least 3 or 4 times in the last year. Seems like I still need some work.

 

Okay lets hit some goals.

Be more forgiving in game, easy. Well not to do, but easy to add to the list.

Gencon weight loss, with everything that happened at the end of the year I got off my diet and slipped into a real gluttonous mindset. As a result I have grown in the bad way, aka around. Time to get motivated again. I am not looking to be in amazing shape by Gencon but not winded as I fast walk/slow jog between events would be nice.

Education, I need to work on that. And i need to make it a larger focus of my life. I just need to figure out what areas I want/need to grow and just do it. For a while i had a fairly solid schedule of reading and reporting. Maybe i need to do something like that again. You people keep my honest.

Podcasting, I need to get a plan down for things. Right now my headset is shot and i have a replacement on the way but once it is hear i need to get back to knocking out the different podcasts including some of the pay for stories of Saveing Samius. There are some real gems that I want to get payed for.  Plus i want to start a Google Hangout min Pod with Tobril. Maybe i can finally make that happen.

I like to have 5…. I could do something about DDo like make a plan for Samius. Or due something with Magic like win something but the truth is I am just in a place where i am simi unfocused. I need to get on someplace full time, someplace with a future. Can i just say become gainfully employed someplace i love again? Or maybe that shouldn’t be in my goals as i am not 100% that is where i am meant to be. No lets do something else. I want to have a DnD module ready for the public. That is something i have wanted for a long time and ever done. Put out my own adventure. Well i guess 2014 is the year.

I also want to wish you all well. This year would have been even harder with out you all checking in on me and reading my poor spelled and wrambly mess i call a blog. So thank you all and

<3s

 

Form of a Dog!

Yep the other day I TRed Java back into a druid and I am already really glad I did. There is something just pure fun about this animal form melee/caster mashup. All the cool melee attack spells at your disposal and lets not to leave out Blood Moon enchantment line (kill a guy move/attack faster harder). So much fun.

So Monday I took a few hours and cleared the TR bank. Making trips to the barkeep on the boat to sell things that somehow were “special” when really they were trash. Then after the char creation process I started digging through the new TR bank and there are loads of junk items that didn’t need to saved.

How does that happen? EVERY DAMN TIME! I dumped Repair pots and some easy to farm BtC items and some how a +1 flaming shield of mod fort like level 15 made it?

I just don’t understand…..

I will try to talk more in depth about the leveling process on this life and how the build is forming. Maybe I will even do a little “how to” write up at the end, IDK….

But that does bring me to another topic I need to talk just a little bit about, Writing schedule.

For a long time I was every work day quick blog post man, mainly due to hiving been stuck on a soul crushing project that I needed to take 15 mins to think about anything else everyday or I would go insane. And while that project is still on my to do list it is not the main focus for my day everyday all the time.

And that is amazing. But that also means finding that 15 mins is starting to become a challenge. So I am going to change to a Wednesday and Friday update for sure and then try to do smaller updates from home on Samius’ time. And those I can’t promise because would you rather play DDo or write about ddo? Yeah me to.

Well see you for sure on Friday.
