And now, on with the show!
Yesterday, I made 0 gold. Zip. Zero. Nada. Why? I just didn't feel like it. Every day we have days where we just want to do something different. I spent my WoW time yesterday PvP'ing, and I ran a few heroics. It was fun and interesting (unlike my blog according to Google, apparently), and it got me refreshed. It was kind of like a cheat meal; it restarted my metabolism to the point where I'm ready and rearing to go today.
This is the great thing about WoW; it's a game. If you were the owner of your local Subway (or however franchising works), you'd lose business and customers would be really disappointed if you just said, "You know, I really don't feel like going in today," and just didn't open the store. In WoW, you're the owner, but your customers will continue to buy from you even if you take a day, week, or even a month off.
The moral of the story is, you need to avoid burnout. 10k in a day, then 0 for the rest of the week is a lot worse than 3k per day.
There's my post, now it's time to go
