This week’s posts:
- Free cake, killing cows, and tackling the Grand Exchange.
- Hides on hides on hides.
- The deep desert is not fun.
- The deep desert s still not fun.
- Game with a friend.
This week was a toughy but I upped my word counts:
- 1229 words.
- 953 words.
- 958 words.
- 805 words.
- 958 words.
By expanding my word count I am being more thorough. I also hit my post total goal for the week. I may not have done everything on the allotted day but I made sure I made up for it. Every time I play is a new adventure so I never run out of things to say. I take more screen shots than I have to and the file on my computer is quite full. Everyday I get more likes and more views. I post on both my personal Twitter account and on Potam’s. Potam’s Twitter is gaining followers. The blog has three followers.
Next week I am implementing a blog roll and I am going to reference more blogs in upcoming posts: time to outsource! I will also increase my interactions with the other players in RS instead of just leveling all the time.
Otherwise, there isn’t anything new to report. This week was much the same as the week before.

I recently began my expedition throughout the RuneScape world while posting anythign I’ve learned, the adventures I had and whatnot. It was a relatively quiet week since Potam, the character I created is still in her early levels.
The Terms and Conditions
This was my introductory post to inform any potential readers what exactly it was that I would be doing. I had a comment on it from a fellow player which is always a confidence boost. I ran into a few issues when I tried to add a recurring music player to the blog. Apparently I have to pay more money which was definitely not going to happen.
Let’s begin, shall we?
This is how I created Potam. I go through the step by step process, describing my experience and comparing it to what the old edition of RuneScape was like. I tried a couple of new things for this post. I wanted to add in a couple of screen shots all in a row along the bottom but I couldn’t quite figure out how until I discovered the gallery view. This make the post look much more put together. I also threw in a poll at the bottom to make it more interactive.
Graduated. Now what?
Potam is finally out of the Tutorial there are a couple of things I had to go into quite a bit of detail on so I didn’t get very far on the recording of Potam’s adventures. As for meeting new people, I met one person and we had a conversation that lasted about thirty seconds. Next week I will be moving to more populated worlds so as to increase these interactions.
What a load of lodestones.
This post I also did not go into detail about Potam but I did address certain things any new player may be confused about like lodestones. It was hard to choose the screen shots for this post considering there were so many. I think I might try making a gallery of extra shots at the very end if this happens again. That way if anyone would like to have more information on something, all my data is there.
I also began a Twitter account for this character and you can follow it here for post updates as well as RS updates.
Some issues I had this week:
- The fact that Twitters new widget for streaming tweets via a search term does not work and hasn’t been working for the past six months. I spent hours trying to find a way around this but I guess it just isn’t going to happen for me.
- My music issue was annoying but I can see how it’s for the best. Not everyone wants to listen to RuneScape ambiance.
- At one point my computer crashed because I was running too many programs. I now have to play RuneScape, take notes, and then go on WordPress and record them.
I look forward to seeing where this bog can go.
