Admittedly, summer has been particularly slow in regards to blog content. Perhaps it’s the lazy days of the season that make writing out of reach for me, or possibly because I just didn’t have much going on that warranted a blog post. However, that has changed.
I’m going to talk about World of Warcraft and game addiction. More specifically, my own experiences with the game and what happened as a result.

Originally, there was no plan to return to blogging. When I became motivated to produce content once more, I initially opted for YouTube. Due to the nature of my upcoming content, and my awareness of the climate of hostility on the site, I was fully aware that I would be subject to that hostility.
Of course, if a journalist doesn’t get someone mad it’s usually an indicator that they’re not doing their job properly. Nevertheless, I had to take precautions. With that were some considerations.
The first of considerations I made was the phenomenon known as “doxing”(also spelled “doxxing”). For the uninitiated, doxing is the publishing of personally identifiable information. This can include information such as a real name, personal address, phone number, email address, and social security number.
Before I go further, I wish to point out the fact: This is not a substitute for legal advice. I am not a lawyer. I would defer any and all expertise to them should a conflict between interpretations of the law arise. With that out of the way, we can begin properly.
