I noticed recently that Blogger changed their word verification thing and of course I don't notice it on my own blog but I certainly notice it on other's. In fact it's gotten so bad lately that I have been tempted not to leave comments because I can't get the words right.
So I decided that I might be losing comments that way, and so I've decided to brave the spam and take out the word verification thing. So hopefully my friends can comment more easily now.
Another thing bugging me is the pingbacks. I noticed in Wordpress that there are all these cool pingbacks to posts, where people linking to your post shows up at the bottom of your post. I really would like to see that on my blog. But when I ticked the little box that says show pingbacks, I don't get anything. I worked out that it's because I am using a custom template, and if I had the standard templte, you would be able to see the pingbacks. There are even instructions on how to insert the html stuff to put in there, but it's too hard for me, and I can't find the places it says you have to put it... The solution would be to revert to a standard template. Ugh. I guess I could see if that works. But I'm reluctant to do anything drastic because I am happy with the way the blog looks now. If it's not broken, don't fix it, right?
And my dumb thing for the day. Hwired and Roshii were telling me I should make money. I don't make money with the AH, I do dailies and quests and raid and all my money seems to keep me quite comfortable. It's not a lot, but it's not little either. So they told me to try selling enchants and stuff, which I don't like doing because I'm a bit of a hoarder, and I keep everything "just in case". So I thought I'd venture out and sell a Power Torrent enchant. Which sold. So that was nice. Roshii said he made money selling his epic gems, the ones he doesn't need. Ok, I thought, I can do that. So I got my Elven Peridot which I got the other day and put it on the AH.
I looked in my mailbox and it had sold. Yay! So I went to collect it... hm, the price that it sold for was... missing a 0. Navi, you noob. I think I just sold an epic gem for 100g instead of 1000g. Doh. Well, the good thing is that the gem cost my nothing anyway, so it's not like I LOST money. And more gems will come. But boy do I feel silly. The person who bought my gem must think what a bargain! What an idiot selling it for so little - maybe they're a gold farmer.
