A Change of Plan?

I've been playing a lot of GW2 this past week. It's the first time I've managed to get stuck into the game since I moved.

What struck me the most was how out of the loop I now am with the economy. I mean, I'm doing okay and some of my long, long term predictions paid off but I couldn't say that right now I'm any kind of expert.

This got me thinking. I'm really keen on continuing with content creation, but I'm not going to be able to claim any kind of expertise in the area this site arose to deal with. What if I just branched out? You know, started writing about things not quite related to the economy.

What would you folks think about that?

I mean, I get there'd be people who've bookmarked the site for the sole purpose of it being an additional tool for their earning goals in game. So perhaps a few wouldn't feel like following my posts as closely as before.

There are also folks who just want additional content about the game they love at times they can't really play it (work for instance) and so just read about it. I reckon I could provide a service to those folks alright.

It's also something I'm keen to do myself - spreading my wings as it were. No doubt I'll still share thoughts about things related to the economy but perhaps a kind of rebranding is in order? Or maybe the 'riches' in the blog title would stand for all the riches this delightful game has to offer?

Who knows! Only time will tell. Perhaps some of you have thoughts on the matter too?

  1. If you want to write about things other than the economy, go for it. It's your blog. You might consider renaming the blog to more accurately reflect the wider scope, or create a second blog for posts that are not concerned with the economy.

  2. As someone who indeed has bookmarked this site solely for what you have to say about the economy:

    Additional articles would be a welcome addition, so long as the primary focus is still to discuss goings-on of the economy.
    If the additional posts are meaningful there's no reason I wouldn't want to read them too, but I think I'd lose interest after a while if I stop seeing what I had originally visited this site for.

  3. Personally, I'm finding it difficult to find sites on the economy of GW2 and help with farming/Gold making. I too took a long hiatus from the game (3 week hospitalization)and when I returned like you said, much had changed. But it has not taken me that long to get back to my previous level of compitence. Discussing stange goings on in the game and cool spots to view or interesting npc's to visit would be worthwhile content, but to me, the discussion of goldmaking comes first. I'm a farmer, it's who I am.

  4. Thanks for the feedback guys, I am a-pondering and I think at this early stage a tweak to the content (I post things that interest me in general) is coming.

    That's not to say I won't write about making digital moneys - it still interests me :)
