Introducing "The Power Word: Gold Chronicle" - The Latest Gold-Making News All In One Spot


I was laying in bed the other night and I had one of those ideas that literally keeps you up at night. I knew right then that no matter how late it was I had to get up and build what was in my head. The fruits of my labor are The Power Word: Gold Chronicle. (Read today's as well as yesterday's edition.)

The Power Word Gold Chronicle (or just "The Chronicle") is a special sub-section of Power Word: Gold (chronicle.powerwordgold.net) providing the most recent gold-making posts from around the community in a simple newspaper-style layout. It has it's own RSS feed that runs completely separate from The Power Word: Gold's RSS feed so be sure you're subscribed to both. I plan to update The Chronicle multiple times a week.

Each edition of The Chronicle is hand laid out and will included many of the most up-to-date gold-making posts from around the community. While similar to automatically-generated gold-making news collections (most notibly the excellent news page at The Undermine Journal) and blogrolls exist (including our own) I think that The Chronicle will provide a nice quiet place to browse what the gold-making community is talking about at the moment.

Enjoy.

WoW Gold-Making Changes In Patch 4.3 Megapost


Another patch day means another Power Word: Gold Patch Megapost. Whether you live in  the EU or are stuck at work strap in and get your F5 keys ready. I've been sufficiently caffeinated and have appropriate patching/posting music. My ear's to the ground via twitter and a fire hose of RSS feeds. It's business time!

(If you want to chat with those who are poking the patch with a stick right now The Consortium's IRC chat is a great place to start.)

I'll be updating this post live as information comes in. As with any megapost the information will be posted as I find it and will likely not be the "prettiest" post you've ever seen. Enough jabber-jawing! Hop past the jump and let's get this show on the road!

The State of Gold-Making Blogging As 2011 Closes



After adding another new gold-making blog to The World Of Warcraft Gold Blog Directory (as well as updating the activity levels on the directory) I had to stop and take a bit of time to write a little about the tremendous blossoming of gold-making blogs we've seen over this last year.

There has never been a better time to be a player looking for information on how to make gold in World of Warcraft. Frankly I'm often overwhelmed by the amount of new information coming out of gold-making blogs (both old and new) on a daily basis. Keeping up with my RSS reader often feels like trying to take a drink out of a fire hose.

Read on after the jump for a few of my thoughts about where gold-making blogging has been and where it's going.

Introducing Croda's Free Inscription Gold Guide


Today's guest post was written by Croda (twitter: @marketsforgold) from marketsforgold. If you would like your guest post included on Power Word: Gold feel free to contact us at powerwordgold@gmail.com.

Today I have launched Croda’s Inscription Gold Guide.  It is free and it can be found at my blog marketsforgold.

This guide represents my experiences with the inscription profession that took me to over 1 million gold.  It is an aggregation of the posts on my blog marketsforgold and very little, if anything, is in addition to those posts  (actually the blog posts are a disaggregation of this guide).

Confessions of a Mogging Fiend


Today's guest post was written by Keelhaul (Twitter: @DEazeroth). If you would like your guest post included on Power Word: Gold feel free to contact us at powerwordgold@gmail.com.

When transmogrification was announced I was really intrigued.  Obviously. Right? I mean I ended up starting a blog and noodled on the subject for about six weeks.  It's just a fantastic topic and one that is going to remain a stable area of interest and intrigue for a lot of players.

While I'm no longer able to maintain the blog (due to time constraints with our newborn son who's not sleeping more than 2 hrs at a time btw - ugh) I am still in and out of WoW as I try to complete various transmog sets for my 8 toons.

I'll tell you what. Sitting there on a chair from 2-4 in the morning with a baby on your shoulder offers plenty of time to sit and watch the market from the mobile armory on my iPhone.  I've begun a little project in this way and I mentioned it to flux and he asked me to write a post about it.  So here goes. (After the jump of course.)

For-Pay WoW "Gold Guide" Obliterated By Faid



Watch as Faid (from Nerf Faids) completely obliterates the credibility of this for-pay "gold guide". (Also check out Faid's corresponding blog post.)

All I could think after watching Faid's video was get 'em a body bag.

Unfortunately there will be people out there who will be suckered into buying guides like this. Thanks to Faid's hard work I know I won't have to worry about any of our readers falling into such a trap.

If any of our readers have felt ripped off by a gold guide that they have paid real money for be sure let us know via email (powerwordgold@gmail.com) or in the comments below.

If any of our readers are new to gold-making and are looking for a good solid starter guide be sure to check out our 100% free guide "The Power Word: Gold Guide - Free".
