Entertainment on Saturday

This is my Opinion!!! A gamers blog

Is it TABOO to guild recruit on my blog?

Yesterday I did a post, The title was “Hopi Tribe of Xsyon, Recruitment Message“, I added one of them little things that hides a part of the post till you click Read more », I even put a disclaimer on it.

Disclaimer: The opinions expressed here are the views of the writer, That’s me Alik Steel, and do not necessarily reflect the views and opinions of the Hopi tribe of Xsyon.


You can find the post just under this one here on my site. I thought I did a good job on this post, I never thought it would be read like a major league  gaming blogger. I’m not even in the minor leagues of blogging yet, And don’t know if I would like being read by tens of hundreds or even thousands like some may have. To be honest, I don’t have that much to say about gaming. But when I do want to say something, Well I always have my blog. In the past I have a lot of bad comments and emails telling me to stop blogging, That I was making game bloggers look bad by how bad I was. And I yelled back to all that would read me. GET BENT, I AM ALIK STEEL AND I WILL DO WHAT I WISH. Well as time has move on I don’t get that type of stuff any more, Till last night. This time it was not about how bad I spell words or How I use punctuation marks wrong. No this time it was about what I had talked about. This person told me that I should never recruit for my guild on a blog! My first thought was Damn, I didn’t know. Then it hit me, Damn straight I didn’t know, Because it’s bullshit. This is my blog, I should be able to do what ever I wish with it. OK maybe not anything I want, Not that I would want to do anything bad with it, Hell you know what I mean.

Any way, As I do feel like this is my blog, And I can do with it as I see fit, And will do so no matter what is said. Now I know what you are thinking, And yes for me if I piss my readership off I lose like 10 people. LOL Not saying I want to lose y’all, You know I love you guys and gals. But I would like to know your thoughts on this, Am I wrong and blogs, Especially the ones that has no history of guild recruiting, Be able to recruit for guilds?

  1. Some people just can not get their head around concepts like “his blog”/”my blog” and opinion/fact. Sad, but true.

  2. For God’s sake! It’s YOUR blog! You can write about anything you want! If someone doesn’t like it they can stop reading your blog and that’s it! They don’t get to tell you what you can or can’t write about.

    A blog is nothing more than your personal diary, except instead of sticking it in a drawer at home you put it where anyone can read it.

    I thought your post on the Hopi guild was very interesting. I don’t currently have time to play Xsyon, but from reading your posts about it I have become interested enough to add it to my mental list of games that I’d like to play sometime. You’re doing an excelllent job putting over the atmosphere and feel of the game and it is entirely appropriate that you look recruit for your guild if you want to.

    I hope as well as the idiots trying to run your blog for you you also get some good guild applicants.

  3. LOL Thanks Akely and Bhagpuss, I’m going to do my thing. I was just wanting to see just how many people may feel the same way as my blocked commenter friend felt.

  4. Damn straight its your blog, I think its a good one. Nothing wrong with recruiting for your guild or talking about it here. I know several other bloggers who spam for their guilds on their blogs.

    So keep on writing, because I like to stop by and read stuff 🙂 and not all of us are the best spellers.

  5. Thanks Starseeker, Always cool to hear someone comes here on purpose and not by accident 😉

    I knew that most people felt the same way I did about doing what you wish with your blog, But wanted my little friend to see it as well.
