I'll start saying that I'll be posting in big letters from now on. I use computers all day at work, on a system with tiny evil letters, and I wish my blog to me a refresher to those out there that live that same reality. If it is actually bad, please let me know and I'll just write in big letters and post in small, "tame" ones. So there you go, a first why I'm doing it!

Sometimes I can stay a whole play session actually killing nothing in an MMO. I'll be decorating a house, developing an outfit or picking new hair styles to go with a new cape. I simply play games with customization options more often then those who don't.
Basically, some games I go back and play just because they are the best with customization options, and the "quest and kill" part of it I can find anywhere else. I'll highlight Everquest 2 and Lord of the Rings Online as two games I see myself playing for an hour and just customizing and having fun picking outfits.
In the "holy trinity" games, I'm the healer first, DPS second, tank third. While I actually love to play any of those roles, healing is special me. I think it is because of the constant attention I have to give it. Also because rotations are not as efficient, since you are more of a reactive role. And most importantly, because when I met my husband, he played as a tank, and a tank and healer combo was fun to duo on games. Now the plays Everquest (1) and that one is a bit too much on my brain, so I'm just the "what are you doing?" parrot at his shoulder.
As I've said before, it all started as a way to keep english fresh in my brain. Then I found out I could meet great people and that writing about games was a lot of fun. So here I continue, and I want to thank all the NBI folks who are participating, be it giving advice or creating their first blogs.
My one year blogging will be coming soon, and I'll prepare a more detailed post on that then.
Meanwhile, this is why I do it: I love to talk about customization in games, about my adventures, and to meet the blogs of those who visit and leave comments.
