Ever see the old science fiction / horror film the blob? Well sometimes I feel like JMTC is the blob, slowly working it's way across the internet growing larger and larger for the benefit of all wow gold aficionados (minus the gruesome slaughtering of innocents).
First off, let me know what you think of the new blog as I've been devoting quite a bit of time into improving the display and amount of information on the front page. Hopefully the two blog rolls on the left hand side of the site will provide you with ample reading material and if I missed a site you'd like included please let me know. I plan on redoing much of the site, but for now I think the key components are all present even if they don't necessarily look amazing. At a future date I will work on redoing the graphics for the site as well. I'd like to thank those readers who already emailed me with feedback and offered ideas for how I can improve the site. On a side note, I put in around 40 hours of work into the blog this week, I may not do anything this weekend except relax with family and my girlfriend.
If you haven't noticed, I've been changing the way I blog (not just looks) as I can never sit still and just allow my blog to plateau. This is because growing JMTC is a very fun and challenging experience for me and recently I've been stepping it up a notch in terms of my involvement in the community. I've been everywhere these past two weeks, reading up on various wow blogs and commenting, recording podcasts, writing guest posts for several major sites, preparing for the carnival on August 2nd, answering/posting questions on social media sites and networking behind the scenes with various bloggers and site owners. As you already know I just don't settle for second place in the wow gold blogging scene. If you'd like to read up on some of the places I've been lurking at you can check out the following articles:

I recently recorded episode 11 of Call to Auction and plan on doing the show more regularly with Euripides from outdps/wow.com and possibly Bigjimm from phase 3 profit. This weekend we will have issues recording but a schedule will be figured out soon enough. Of note is the fact that episode 11 was focused entirely on emailed questions that have been piling up in the call to auction mail box for quite some time. It made for possibly the best show we've done yet.
The Blogging Carnival is right on schedule to be released August 2nd and I have currently in my possession 27 articles from various blogs covering a gamut of topics related to making gold in wow. Quite a few authors still haven't finished their articles for the Carnival so hopefully they will be able to get their posts sent to me before August 2nd. Thank you to everyone who has sent in posts to participate as I believe it's going to be a lot of fun reading them all and interacting with one another.
If you like what you see... COMMENT! Let me know what YOU think. I don't often ask for comments but after putting 40 hours into the blog this week I really want to get some feedback.
