Note: Lest anyone else take this post seriously, I would like to point out that it’s flagged as “Humor.” I’m not really changing my blog’s name!
Many former EverQuest players will remember the concept of “alpha loot.” This was basically a way to ensure a more-or-less even distribution of loot from monsters by having each group member loot in alphabetical order (this was long before the days when a game automatically handled loot distribution). And since the alpha looting always began with the letter “A”, you had a statistical advantage in the amount of junk you could collect the closer the first letter of your name was to the beginning of the alphabet. I always joked that I was going to reroll as a character named Aardvarkia.
I am noticing a similar problem with my blog title. Many blogs diplomatically opt to alphabetize their blogrolls. This of course makes perfect sense, but as a blog whose name starts with “R”, Resto4Life is often in the bottom 25% of listings. This isn’t really a problem until there are 20 or more blogs that people have to click through to find you. With the Druid blog community growing like a Tauren at an all-you-can-eat gnome buffet, this is becoming more common. Therefore, I would like to announce the following change to my blog name:
The first “A” stands for “An”, the second “A” for “Absolutely”, and the third “A” for “Amicable”. The “Druid” is silent but really brings it all together, I think. Anyway, if you could all update your blogrolls as soon as possible, I’d appreciate it. ^_^
