It made me wonder if people realised how much it costs to actually run a guild. Other than the time investment that you put into things (which isn't really that much - because I would be playing that much anyway or chatting incessantly in game).
The website cost me over $100 a year (yes yes I know, I picked a lousy plan it had all this DNS stuff on it which I don't really need), and Ventrilo also costs a little over $100 a year. I also have Mumble as a backup and that costs $120 a year.
I'm not asking for monetary donations. Of all people, I would probably be close to the last to be concerned with being strapped for cash. Besides, I think it's all for a good cause, and I am happy to pay for it which is probably why it's a good thing that I am the guild leader. But the website thing... I'm not really sure if I want to pay for that. Nobody is using it but we really need somewhere to put guild info especially regarding things like raids, looting systems, and BoEs. We have a Facebook group but not everyone is on facebook.
I could just make a free wordpress page that will just have the guild information on it. Or a google page. That would be easy.
Honestly, like I haven't got enough to do without trying to make a guild page as well. I have this blog to do (well, I should be posting more, it's not very daily, but REALLY, there aren't that many people reading my random ramblings, let's face it), and my other blog has been sorely neglected - there are so many more pop culture references and I've been a bit lazy about adding them.
Lately, I have turned my eye to more crafty projects. I was thinking of making a blanket for myself, and I saw this one on deviant art by Ninjakazz and I thought, hey I can do that! It's a crocheted blanket and I thought I could even make it double sided (and put alliance on the other side... though that seems rather distasteful to me).
It's the first day of spring and there won't be much use for a blanket soon, but the rate at which I churn out blog posts may be a reflection of how fast my knitting/crochet skills go, so if I start now, I might have a blanket in time for next year's winter.
