Back on May 27th, 2013, I posted my first ever competition involving taking a screenshot in-game. I named this competition “Profitz’ Cotton Candy Competition” since you know, I am a clown and yeah, cotton candy comes from a fair…circus…ok, nevermind. *hands you a balloon*
The competition was simple:
Take an in-game screenshot and send it to me answering a couple questions about it and why you think you should win. There were of course some basic rules/guides that needed to be followed but overall, simple and straight forward. Yes, you have to have some rules because you know, people are people…*points finger at the evil ones*
I offered up a few choices for prizes that the winner gets to pick themselves. The value was focused around $25.00 and could include pets, mounts, game time, and even a GameStop gift card. Very sexy! I know…and to think, you just had to press the screenshot …
Abstract: I enjoy a lot of activities and most of them are creative in one way or another. Tonight I decided to dust off my drawing tablet (Intuos Wacom 4 with SketchBookPro on an iMac 27″) and live stream some doodling. Yes, doodling! Like my writing style, I appreciate and enjoy dark fantasy and evil concepts in general, it is just something I enjoyed since growing up. This post covers a video from Twitch and some tunes. If you like art and fantasy, hopefully you will enjoy this trip. Put your seat belts on…Profitz unleashed.
What is the conscience of man? Within this video, I captured my thoughts of one’s internal conscience and society in general. I let my imagination be my guide with a certain feeling in mind and let it just flow. In the end, a conceptual drawing of a bust of a man tangled in snares and obstacles, …
Abstract: How many times do we get a chance to reflect on an accomplishment that took us awhile to complete and actually take the time to write something down, not for ourselves, but for the benefit of others? Some do it quite often and I am simply taking this time to share with you some principles I put together based upon my entire journey to gold-cap. I hope these help you progress, no matter where you are at in your quest, to reach your goal and to be successful.
Learn the basics first
Profitz without Makeup
Play smart and invest smarter
Be aggressive when it’s appropriate
Smile – enjoy the ride you are on – the gold will come

Do not settle for complacency – push yourself and reap the rewards
Be honorable …
Abstract: I was inspired to write this after receiving a recent comment from my college psychology professor. Personally, it was one of the greatest compliments I have received in my behalf, especially from someone who I respect immensely. She wrote, “I expect that one day we will be using your writing in our courses – and put me on the list for a copy of your first publication!” Whether people believe this or not, I know I do and it brought tears to my eyes. Someone who believes. Emotion drives people to do amazing things. This is a personal psyche post about being positive and leaving your mark on the world while not settling for complacency. Be yourself and start living.
Many people go through the world and strive to leave their mark. What ever that is, the objective is the same, caring and succeeding. Some never make it out of …
I am VERY PLEASED and EXCITED to announce to adventurers, friends and fellow gold-makers alike, the journey I started 4 ½ months ago to reach gold cap in The World of Warcraft has successfully been accomplished! **Let the millionaire’s club balloons rise through all of Azeroth in celebration of this day**
The journey of a thousand miles begins AND ends with a single step. These steps I will never forget nor do I regret taking them. Each one, like a stepping-stone of knowledge, moved me closer to a dream, a simple goal. Each step moved me from sharing what I have learned to more importantly, gaining friend to friend. Each step has helped me grow as a player, as a gold-maker, and as a person who understands what it is like to be a beginner.
As I write this, I still consider myself a voice of the beginner. I leave it up …
