Blog Shout Outs

This is for Day 20 of Nev's 20 Days of Goldmaking.  Interested in reading other's views on the topics?  Nev has a post with all the participants here.  Check it out, there's some really great posts!  Todays topic:

Lets spread some blog love - which are your 'must read' or 'go to' gold blogs or even other places you go for information & reading matter?

First of all a shout out to Nev from Auction House Addict for creating her own version of the 20 Days of WoW, and inspiring some great gold content, and providing it constantly herself.  This was one of the most enjoyable things I've done on the blog, so thanks to Nev for the great idea!

Gold Blogging Titans
I'm going to keep this section brief, because these are names we all know and love, and I want this post to focus on some up and coming bloggers.  The following two are my favorites to read (after Nev of course), but this list is by no means exhaustive.  Be sure to check out my Blogroll in my sidebar for the full list.

The Golden Crusade - Eric (aka Xsinthis) is probably one of my favorite gold making writers out there.  I see his approach very closely mirroring mine, we're both very mathematical and opinionated, and I really like his writing style.

Cold's Gold Factory - Cold has been writing about gold making for almost as long as I've been playing WoW.  He knows the ins and outs, co-hosts the Eviscerated Podcast  and I love his monthly gold blogging carnivals that I frequently participate in (when I remember to write the post!).

New Gold Making Bloggers
There are two new faces on the gold blogging scene that I wanted to give shout outs to, and I really hope you check out their blogs as they continue to grow!

WowProfitz - Profitz is new to the gold making scene, but he's already putting out some stellar content.  His blog and podcast can be found at WoWProfitz.com, and his livestream can be found at twitch.tv/wowprofitz.  I really like the way that Profitz writes, and his podcast has been a great listen thusfar (on his 3rd episode, check it out!).  He's a really great guy, and he is using his talents to deliver top notch content to his readers, a great new addition to the gold making community!

ZeroHour's Nameless Blog - Zerohour is a well known and established gold maker from the Consortium Forums who just recently decided to make an "Anti-Gold Blogging Blog".  I think it's a bit ironic that he gives out gold making tips on what he calls an "anti-gold blogging blog", but I digress.  He's a really intelligent guy, and he likes to write about the more in-depth topics and theories in World of Warcraft gold making.  I always love reading what he comes out with, and he really does bring a unique perspective to the gold blogging scene, which I think is excellent.

What I think is great about the community is all the different perspectives that you get from the different blogs out there.  Everyone has a different way of doing things, and molding your own methods around those of other well established players will make you just that more effective!  Any gold bloggers (or your own blog) you want to give a shout out to?  Leave a link in the comments section!

Cheers,

Phat Lewts

  1. That Zerohour guy is mean. Don't read his blog.

    It's Anti-Gold Blogging because I go into the things gold bloggers don't - theory, critical thinking, application. All the things people hate. And roasting. Next one will be fun.

    1. I've been waiting for it since the first one!

    2. Sorry, you don't qualify for any roasts... unless you slap a personal guide up there or add a donate button. Even then it's iffy.

    3. Yeah, I figured if I was on the list at all, I'd be (relatively) far down, but what I meant is I've been looking forward to reading another since you did Jim's.
