Farming Azeroth

Posted by on Jan 23, 2015 in blogpost, Blogs, Wow Posts | 0 comments

I am not talking about planting crops here (although it was fun when Halfhill first came out wasn’t it?  Well until you had to spend half your time fighting those damn weeds and rodents!!), I am referring to farming for transmog items and mats to sell.  There are several places I truly enjoy farming at recently.  These locations are not new by any means and for the most part, are farmed on a daily basis by many but I wanted to share some tips as well as my overall thoughts on ‘farming’ in general for gold.
First off, the majority of the gold I made back in Cataclysm/Pandaria involved flipping items (buying items low and selling for a higher price).  This process still works but since I started getting into addon development, I decided to utilize farming as a means to test out the theory of making liquid gold (gold you actually have …

LootAppraiser! My First WoW Addon!

Posted by on Jan 10, 2015 in blogpost, Blogs, Wow Posts | 0 comments

Today, I successfully released my first World of Warcraft addon called LootAppraiser!  It was approved by Curse and is now available for use directly through the Curse client or at the project site:  http://www.curse.com/addons/wow/lootappraiser.
This is only my 3rd day of teaching myself how to code and I know I have a long way to go but it is exciting!  Am I a pro, HELLLLLLL no!  I think I read through 10,000 lines of code and only wrote about 300.  I enjoy it though and it is quite challenging.  This was always on my list of To Do’s but never had the time to sit down and learn.
Special thanks to Sapu and Bart from the TradeSkillMaster crew for pointing me in the right direction to begin learning as well as blackpanther for answering some of my newbie questions.  Also, special thanks to the following for helping me get through some initial …

Don’t Give Up On Your Dreams!

Sunday’s Thought of the Day – Don’t Give Up On Your Dreams!
It is interesting when I talk to people about their financial goals in relation to living out their dreams and passions in life. It is sad how so many have just given up on themselves and what they wanted for their families. They simply stopped dreaming. Dismissed the goals they had. They are in a continuous cycle of a simple routine of building someone else’s dream doing to a 9-5 daily and not stopping to think if this is all that life has to offer.
Think back for a moment when we all were kids. We thought and believed we could achieve anything and had the biggest hopes and goals in life to become this or that and to be able to do this or that. Our parents perhaps told us to aim high or shoot for the moon! What …

Exciting Beginnings – Taking Control of Health

Posted by on Sep 26, 2014 in blogpost, Blogs, Personal Psyche | 0 comments

As many of you know, I’ve been attempting to get back into shape for quite some time. Health is just as important as family is to me and I must say, I’m not where I want to be. Lately it seems every step forward is a couple steps back and I’m just spinning in an endless circle of unhealthiness. There always seems to be one excuse after the next which sets me back or simply prevents me from moving forward.
However, the one thing I have is a good heart and a strong sense of …remaining positive in the toughest and darkest of times. Remaining positive and continuing to search for a way that will help me get to where I want to be was challenging but now, I’m typing this with a smile because I FOUND IT and I have a few people I want to thank for taking the …
