20 Days of WoW Blogging

Have I mentioned yet, that I was Navispamed? Wait, I did? Oh. Sorry, still coming down from that.

Now,  the real reason why I brought that up was to cleverly segue into why I'm doing the "20 days of WoW blogging." You see, while I was chatting it up with Navimie, she mentioned that she wanted to visit to get to know me a bit better. I've noticed that, as a recurring theme through the segment. Whether they be readers, writers of blogs she reads, or people she admires in general, she visits them all to get a better idea of who they are, as people.

With that in mind, I wanted to find a way to let readers learn a little bit more about me, without having to try and catch me online. So, I've decided to do Spellbound's 20 days of WoW Blogging Challenge. Please, bear in mind that I may not be able to do it 20 days in a row. My schedule is already packed to the brim. I can promise that I will try to do these as expediently as possible.

We start with day 1. Introduce yourself.

Hi, my name is Malkshake, Malk for short. I've been playing WoW since August of 2005. My first character was a rogue, but in late 2007 I decided to change mains and have been priest healing ever since.

I graduated high school in 2008. That's right, I was one of the high school baddies everyone complains about. I took my first year of university toward a BSc, and quit midway through my second year and promptly signed up for pastry school and graduated from the Culinary Institute of Canada in 2010. I'm currently attending college full time in Business Administration and next year I will be specializing in Accounting. Ultimately I'd like to receive my professional designation in a few years and get a cushy job working in the financial sector. In my spare time I like to WoW, write for my blog, and I draw a little too.  At home I have two kitties and a dog who lives with my parents because my dad decided he liked him too much to let him move out with me. To be fair the dog loves my father way more than he ever loved me.

In WoW, I am a level 90 discipline night elf priest. I'm strictly a healer, meaning my secondary spec is holy, and I've been that way since Wrath. I've held multiple positions in a number of hardcore raiding guilds primarily throughout Wrath; however, have taken a more backseat role presently as my schoolwork and job have taken priority. Most of the time these days you'll find me treating WoW as an escape from the real world. In the time that I get to play I'm usually chasing some new mount, pet, or title, most recently the insane. I'll also admit to having been quite the achievement whore in the past. Sometimes, I just like to sit on WoW and write for my blog. I don't know why, but it's always easier to hammer out an article if Hemoglobin is sitting there on the screen.

I have a handful of alts, all of them alliance. The most noteworthy of which are: an 87 resto/enchance shaman, an 87 frost death knight, an 85 resto druid, an 85 assassination/subtlety rogue and a level 80 holy paladin who is currently looking for a Herald of the Titans group both for gearing and ultimately getting the achievement.

I think that is probably enough rambling for now. If you have any questions that aren't likely to be addressed through the 20 days challenge, or if you want to do this with me please drop me a line at my email


  1. Well, you know who will be reading! :D
