I like fishing. Both in real life as well as in the MMO's I have played. It's also fascinating to fish for readers: sometimes you kick, but at this early point of this blog's life, you usually miss.
I could try to get some hits from the search engines just by using the current hot searches as the basis for the posts. But that would be cheating. I'd be more cheating myself than anyone else, as the truth is that no-one really cares about the visitor count of a normal blog.
Except the blogger her/himself.
The exception lies in the amounts of some über-cool bloggers like Tobold or JoBildo or KillTenRats team, who have established their presence in the blogosphere earlier. There are several, as the bloglist at Ysharros' blog Stylish Corpse can tell. The ones who have been reporting their thoughts and ideas and rants over the net for sometime already. There is the difference of tens, thousands, tens of thousands and millions of siteviews involved.
And that was my futile attempt to fish some credibility. Thank you.
However, in WoW I spent some few minutes last night just fishing and cooking. My warrior is still at a bit low level in both, just passed 150 in them, and I thought that it would be nice to achieve some increase in them. So I finally got Fishing Buddy installed. Only to learn that the double click cast (Easy Cast) doesn't work. Only the outfit switch and the data recording.
Nevertheless, what a trip that was. I just went up and down the river flowing beside Southshore village in Hillsbrad Foothills, fishing and killing both turtles (for Turtle meat) and Grey Bears (for Big Bear meat). Why fishing, you may ask if you have never played in there... which I seriously doubt...
Because of the Sagefish Schools.
The river is full of them. You fish one empty and the next one is just in view a bit up creek. Along the way there are bears and turtles many and plenty, and the drop rates are just nice for an easy stroll in the river.
And the fishing pools have nice drops, too. I got at least 9 watertight containers within 20 minutes along with all the fish and meats, from which I got some greens, some bolts of cloth and other paraphernalia. Total I netted about 2g from the junk I sold alone.
Oh, and I got the skills up, too. Fishing up to 160, cooking just short of Soothing Turtle Bisque, 172.
I think there will be more fishing coming soon. It's all money, you know?
