I have some refreshing news, some wonderful warm wishes to share with everyone today.
This is pretty awesome.
I’m delighted to share the news that Phaelia, the former author of Resto4Life has returned both to World of Warcraft AND to blogging!
Before I ramble on about what Phaelia meant to me because who gives a toss what I think, let me tell you that her new blog and website can be found at The Dreamgrove.
How’s that for the ultimate Druid website name! She’s clearly providing all of us a place to come home to at last.
Go ahead, go on, go visit her, I’ll still be here.
As those of you still around know all too well, I may be an old blogger but Phaelia is, alongside Big Red Kitty, one of the two spiritual parents of all WoW bloggers that have ever lifted finger to key to share our thoughts about the game.
Phaelia and her website Resto4Life was, at least for me, one of the most treasured blogs and resource websites for Druids around. Always written from the heart with love and genuine warmth, just the memory of Resto4Life as a website brings a smile to my face.
It’s kinda like sitting down and thinking back to that one warm, sunny day where you took a blanket and a picnic basket to the beach, and the breeze was just right, and everybody actually had a good time, and nobody got sand packed up the crack of their bathing suit, and the sandwiches didn’t get wet before you ate them, and your kid had fun and didn’t step on a jellyfish or cut his foot on a sharp seashell.
You know, one of those few truly wonderful, heartwarming memories that remind you that the rest of the internet may be a shitshow but daggonit it’s not ALL like that.
She represented the best of us and made me feel that maybe, just maybe after a long day of Trade Chat there was still at least one ray of hope. One.
As many of you might remember, Phaelia announced she was retiring from blogging a while back due to the approaching birth of her son and her desire to spend some true, solid, focused time with her little one.
Shortly after that Blizzard added the perfect item to the game in her honor, Phaelia’s Vestments of the Sprouting Seed, an extremely appropriately well-named leather chestpiece.
While she’s been gone for a while now, I’m sure I’m not the only one that is going to be excited to see her return!
Phaelia, I’m delighted that you’re back, and to hear that you’re super enthusiastic to get back to writing. Or blogging. Or whatever the heck it is we do. I missed you.
Elune bless you and shine upon you that you may grow in light or darkness, no matter what the seasons may bring.
