This Blog is Shifting Perspectives

Over the past month I have been writing blog posts intermittently, using many scattered topics in hopes of finding my "niche" in the blogosphere. It wasn't until last night that I stumbled upon an idea while discussing blogging and internet marketing with Serainy (from AH-Whoring.com) and Will (from WoWConfidential.com). It was the discussion of finding a "niche" that really set off a light bulb in my head.

From talking to people, and from what I have read, there appear to be a great deal of "hard science" minds that currently write WoW Economics blogs. By this I mean people who have / are studying chemistry, computer science, engineering and so forth. The one thing I have noticed is a distinct lack-of blogging from people who have studied "social sciences". It was at this point that I thought to myself, "Why not try catering to an audience that very few people try to reach? After all, I've got a degree in Psychology, why not use it in conjunction with my interests?" After thinking about it, and mulling over some ideas I could use to start off, I decided that I'd go for it.

And so, from this point forward "Green Guts: Goblin Emporium" has changed to "Green Guts: Goblin Psychology", and will henceforth seek out answers to the "Why?" questions that relate to the WoW Economy. Wish me luck!

Also, for those still interested in hearing more about my latest adventures in the Auction House, I just started using Twitter. I will begin posting from there after I've transferred (later today).

Lastly, keep your eyes open for my first psychology related post, "Goblins: Who and Why".

  1. Good luck with the new blog angle, I'll definitely be keeping an eye on it :)

  2. Sounds interesting I look forward to see where you go with it.

  3. Anticipating good things! Good luck with it

  4. please tell me why do people buy individual items when a better use of money is buying the 20 stack then reselling / using the left over. If you do this all of wows secrets will be revealed. I belive its because players are dumb and dont care about waste of gold.

  5. @ bobreaze: That's an interesting question :) I think that will be the a blog I add to my "to write" list after I finish up this first one!

  6. Sounds like we have a really nice read coming up, can't wait.
    @ Bobreaze
    I'd say they are just lazy. I have done it myself a few times (shame) just because I didn't want to spend a lot of time trying to get stuff sold in a market I know nothing about.

  7. Psychology always remain mystery for me...
    :) will stay tuned
