The time has come for me to say Goodbye to LOTRO Weekly. I had a lot of fun and I hope I helped some people along the way. In the end, it’s not you, it’s me. No really. My main reasons for shutting down LOTRO Weekly are thus: not enough time in my life to devote to quality LOTRO blogging and feeling pressure from myself to be putting out content on a regular basis. These two things combined mean that I just don’t have as much fun writing for LOTRO Weekly as I once did. Like I said, this is mostly because of internal pressures that I put on myself. At this point, I spend more time digging through the forums and doing LW stuff than actually playing LOTRO, which I feel is not how it should be.

I will leave LOTRO Weekly up in a slightly different format so that people can still access the information herein, I’m not a Scorched-Blog type person.

I will still be active in the Windfola community and will still post to the LOTRO forums when it strikes my fancy to write a guide or something. I will also keep The White Captain up, as that is strictly for my RP pursuits and outfits.

Again, I hope I have helped some people in the past year this site has been going and I hope it continues to help people.

    Oh no this is very sad news! But I completely understand what you mean and of course could never fault you for wanting to have more time to yourself. I will seriously miss the cosmetic outfits posts. I loved those!

    I’d like to suggest that you keep it running on a more personal focus. Just post your opinions on the things going on in game, like you did about the anniversary events. And maybe keep the weekly outfits going, which I really liked to inspire me to lose hours on alts picking clothes.

    With a more personal focus, I believe you won’t feel pressured to update too constantly to keep the same pace as the news speed.

    I am one almost doing a little gaming blog for myself, to share lotro and EQ2 Extended stuff, or even my The Sims 3 housing projects. Just to have a space to share my game things, no compromise, just fun and maybe to find people to talk about these games.

    Think about it!

    Sad news, but as a blogger myself I understand the “feeling pressure from myself to be putting out content on a regular basis”

    Good luck

    I really appreciate you offering me help when I first began playing LotRO (it was my first MMORPG) and I will always look back fondly on what a vibrant, insightful community surrounds the game.

    I don’t know if you saw my last forum post, but I’m in the same boat as you–I was more concerned with getting out updates for my journal than playing the game, which turned something fun into something I procrastinated to accomplish.

    Best of luck to you in your future endeavors and thanks again for welcoming newcomers with open arms.

    Cheers to this blog, I’ve followed it here and there. Thanks for all your time and efforts in writing, screenshotting, and posting. Enjoy your LOTRO time, because in the end – that’s what it’s all about.
