Work has gotten busy but also exciting this week. My department has gotten the go ahead to do some really awesome shit with the flagship website. It took a while for me to get everyone around me to learn to disengage from the existing framework and workflow, but finally everyone is able to conceptualize that the content doesn't need to fit into such rigid formats and that means fun times ahead. Given that a solid part of my job is SEO means that after launch I'll actually be able to do fun things like A/B landing pages and making our content more keyword friendly. We'll also have the ability to set up a proper editorial workflow too.

I've been burning through the base content migration this week and ended up ahead of schedule, which on the one hand was fabulous, since we might need to archive less at launch, but it also meant I did nothing but source and sort stock photo assets. After 8 hours of that I am fried.

Doing all the content migration though (and having just started doing some spring cleaning on our backup drive) is making me consider scheduling out an attempt to actually get the giant backlog of ancient artwork up on my personal site. Given that the way wordpress handles media now it's not as daunting as it was the last time I actually looked at doing that.

I've been playing a lot more Guild Wars 2 this week and over the weekend since I've been a bit too tired to really focus on anything creative. It's been fun, though I still don't quite like it as much as I like WoW, but I'm really disconnected on WoW since most of the folks I used to run with don't play anymore, and I still haven't settled onto the server that my coworker plays on. I wish I could pinpoint what I find less satisfying about GW2!

Exciting is good. Although, I could do with less of that. ;)

Since we're in the same place, and God knows how long that'll be true for me, do you want to meet up for coffee at some point, maybe?

Content migration is a nightmare, but life is better afterwards...

If you ever want a questing buddy, my battletag is Silverr#1206. Most of my toons are Ally, but I do have a 90 belflock and a few 85+ Hordeside (as well as a scatter of lower-level toons of both factions).

I played GW2 for a while, though I haven't logged in for a while. (I rolled a bit of everything - Sylvari elementalist, Sylvari thief, human Necro, Charr guardian, Asura warrior, Norn ranger- and as I like leveling professions along with the toons none but the hunter are much past level 20ish. The hunter is 38 iirc). I'm on Dragonbrand, I think ( can't check as a monster update is trying to DL at this moment.)

In WoW I have an 85-ish dwarf warlock, a 50 monk, and 90 priest, shaman, hunter, and DK on Alleria-A. There's also a 90 druid Ally-side on Earthen Ring, and a handful of mid-level toons on FarStriders. Horde I have the 90 belflock, 85 mage, 81 hunter, and a 40ish pally on Quel'Dorei, plus some 60s and 40s on Proudmoore. (Yes I am an altoholic. What can I say, I get bored with the same old-same old.)

P.S. We've kept our Vent server from back when we raided a lot, so I can pop that info over to you if you like (makes dailies more fun sometimes :p)

Are you Yuizito by any chance? Someone by that name sent me a battletag invite, but no reply when I said hi and asked how I knew them. (I assume it wasn't you.)

I didn't realize you were doing web design as well as illustration work. Sounds like this job was a perfect match for you. :)

Completely unrelated, buuut... Just so you know who this random perosn adding you out of nowhere is, it's [personal profile] scarletseraph. Considering I have all of three people on my DW flist, it made more sense to just start a new journal than pay for a rename token. X_x
