You're hired!

Note: This isn't the official post for today. Click Here to read it.

Aloha all! Very cool news on my end I wanted to share with you all. I am now officially a professional-ish writer on the subject of the auction house! I have been hired on staff for the website www.warcraftecon.net where I'll be writing four articles a week over there on the exact same subject that I talk about here: making tons of money in your MMO of choice.

Warcraftecon if the go to site for a lot of wow based economy information. While I am not actually playing wow, I do write about the auction house and general economic theory in an MMO which applies to every game that has one. For everything that I write that it wow-centric you won't be finding it here, I'll leave a link and a short description of what I wrote about up top and that's all. For my normal blog posts however, I'll have a direct link to the site where my article is published.

So what does this mean for the blog? It means that sometimes you'll have an extra link to click to get your daily fix of into on making money on the AH and that's it. I am certainly not abandoning this blog, not by a long shot. I'll be keeping all of my rift centric writing here while my general purpose theory and wow specific writing will be over there.

Lastly, there is no need to worry about me sending all of my "best" content over there and leaving only the left overs on my blog. At the worst, I'll be splitting up the location of my writing. At best you will have even more awesome stuff to read while you pretend to be busy at work! Suffice to say, I am very excited about this opportunity and I look forward to sharing even more of my thoughts on the AH with all of you.

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Congrats, Stokpile!

    Although you've moved on to Rift (a game I have little to no interest in), I still keep you in my feed reader because of your unmatched knowledge and experience with MMO economies. Plus I just enjoy your writing. :)

    So congrats on your new gig! I'm looking forward to picking your brain some more. Mmmm....brains....

    That little 1x1 is a bit suspect.

    Thanks for catching that. I have no clue why, but for some reason that crap pops up constantly as of late.

    @ Karot
    Braaaains! And I'm glad you're still reading, well over half of what I've been writing lately you would have no idea what game I play until I mention specific item names. Just replace them with "widget" and bam, it applies to your game of choice.

  4. Congrats, that's awesome news! Just hit the gold cap in WoW myself and the advice on your blog certainly helped me hone the AH skills that got me there! Look forwards to reading the new posts! :)
