Well hello there!

Come on in and take a look around. I know there is not much to see right now, but this is a new experience for me. So I hope you enjoy my perspective on things. My friend, Fish, got me reading Blogs and I must say I love a lot of the articles I have read, but I noticed that poor Holy Paladins are not represented a whole lot, so I figured I would shed some light (no pun intended there) on life in the boots of a Holy Pali.

Let me tell you a little bit about myself and my life in game and out of game. We will start with the out of game stuff first, since that tends to take up a lot of time. I am a married man, hard to believe that I am in my thirties, and I have a little boy, who is a blast to watch as he thinks of all the trouble and things that he can get into. I like to think of myself as out going and friendly, some people may say that I am somewhat moody, but I do not see this. In my house I have four generations of my family living with me, so you can imagine this can get complicated keeping up with who is coming, going, or missing...... (so far, no one is missing.) I love life and while the last couple of years have been somewhat of an adjustment, I truly believe that what does not kill you, will only make you strong. I have two dogs, one full blooded Australian Cattle Dog (Blue Healer) and a mut.

Now for the World of Warcraft stuff, seeings as this is going to be a blog for MMORPGs, specifically looking at WoW. My first character, and true love was a paladan. I originaly started him out as a retribution pali, but had to abandon this in Outland to get in groups. I switched to prot and realized I hated tanking. I then found my true love as a healer, but don't tell my guild or they may not ever let me run my other toons on runs. I have been playing WoW for almost three years now. I cannot believe it has been this long. Speaking of other toons, let me give you the run down of my little disfunctional family. I have my level 70 Blood Elf Pali, a level 70 Blood Elf Warlock (who my wife says is the pissiest lock around), a level 70 Blood Elf Hunter, a level 70 Troll Shaman, a level 52 Troll Rogue (my newest project), and a host of other toons ranging from 12 - 40. I have three accounts on a monthly basis that I pay to keep up and running, of course my wife did take over one entire account (and let me throw a shout out to her, she has a level 70 Blood Elf Pali as well).

When I first got into the game it was because I was lonely in the gaming world, having given up EQ quite sometime before I heard of WoW. I was at work all the time and a group of friends were always laughing about the game, so I figured what the hell. That was all it took to get me hooked. When I first started playing I joined them in their guild, which was a fun guild, decent size and somewhat active. After playing for sometime and recruiting several of my own friends, we decided to form a guild on the side for fun, more of a joke against where we all worked at the time. Sometime later the main guild that the majority of us were in closed down. With no other course of action, we moved all of our toons into MAS (Mass Affluent Slayers) and from then on we have worked to grow the guild and have fun in the World of Warcraft!

I know this has been a lot of information to take in. A lot of rambling at times perhaps, but now you know who I am and some basic information. After reading all the wonderful blogs on here, I hope someone enjoys mine as much as I have enjoyed all of yours. On the next entry I will deal more with what I plan to make of this blog in relation to being a holy healing machine of a Paladin.

Take care all!
