31 Day Challenge started

As so many other bloggers (over 9500 I think) have taken the Problogger's 31 Day Challenge, I'm hereby admitting of being one of those. I have felt that this blog could use some revamping both on the content and the quality, so I'm trying my best to live up to the course and develop the blog.

Hopefully myself on the side, too.

The first challenge posed is to write an Elevator Pitch: a short introduction about the blog and why it is there. Matticus  and Kestrel have at least revised theirs, so I'm in a good company.

What can I say about this blog. I'm writing about my experiences and thoughts about World of Warcraft. From the viewpoint of a newcomer. From a viewpoint of an ESAK. From a viewpoint of social casual gamer with family.

Now, how to combine the definitions I just mentioned...?

Some taglines to replace the old one:

  • BullCopra: World of Warcraft as seen by a social, casual gamer dad.
  • BullCopra: Much bull about World of Warcraft
  • BullCopra: No horns, but casual gaming in WoW.
How do I explain the blog in less than 150 words (hey, I could use Twitter to check these!):

BullCopra is my personal blog about my experiences and thoughts about World of Warcraft and issues I see and experience while playing as a casual gamer with family.

Wow. Less than 30 words.

My blog is my view of the games I play, especially World of Warcraft and MMO's, and it's emphasis is on the exploration, social community and issues I encounter in the games as a curious and casual gamer dad.

Better. But I just read Kestrel's elevator pitch and find mine inadequate.

BullCopra is a blog about World of Warcraft through the eyes of casual gamer dad, who's interest in the game lies in the social gaming, exploring the content and finding ways to improve the game as whole. I write the blog for the casual gamer from the viewpoint of how the newcomer, viewing the game from my own first timer experience. Occasionally I may write about something else touching my gamer life, like other games or game news in general.

80 words. And I think I got it all in there.

Nice.

Tagline will be the first one, as it will be easy to change as soon as the game of my choice changes. Not soon, that is.

BullCopra: World of Warcraft as seen by a social, casual gamer dad.

Did I get it as you have viewed this blog?

Pedantic I know, but there were a few typos in your copy:

@Ysh: I left the URL out deliberately to keep the lazy people like you away from the goodies... In truth, I was too lazy to check it myself so I rather transfer the traffic to Kestrel or Matticus who have linked properly to http://www.problogger.com

@Crucufer: thank you for the proof reading. As I've emphasized over time, English isn't my native language, so I'm prone to do such mistakes as you have corrected. As soon as I have time, the post will be updated with your proofed version.

Thank you both.

C out
