Happy April! I hope yesterday, with all of its jokes and pranks, didn’t leave you too tired to read stuff on the internet. We return to the standard Sunday morning links format today. No jokes, only my favorite things of the past seven days.

Watch: Minimalism | The documentary from The Minimalist that hit me like a dump truck last year and kicked things into overdrive for me is now available worldwide on Netflix. Find an hour, watch it, and let me know what you think.
It’s patch day for Azeroth. Later today, when servers come back online, patch 7.2 – The Tomb of Sargeras – will be live in North America. In the past, this day meant a mad rush to get going on all the latest things. Log in to all of my characters. Start working on every new bit of content. But, not this time. This time I have to be intentional. Today is also a patch day of sorts for Warcraft minimalism.
The Sunday Morning links are a wee bit late thanks to a nasty head cold. Rest and Warcraft have been most of the last three days for me. Apologies for the lack of posts this week. Hopefully, I am cleared up and have renewed focus in the next few days.
This week’s post is a tad different as it is all resources for start and maintaining a blog. Enjoy!
On Sunday night I finished the alt leveling. The plan I laid out was completed much quicker than I had anticipated. With 7.2 on the horizon, proper alt management becomes crucial. When the new patch hits I will be switching back to the Hunter full time. Knowing the best way to maximize my time on my alts will make for a much more enjoyable and efficient experience.
The following five add-ons are how I keep tabs on my new roster of 110s.
Another Sunday. Another group of links. Gonna keep this short and sweet this morning because I have three levels to get through on the Paladin today to have the leveling plan complete. I am excited to move on to new plans in preparation for 7.2. Watch out for more in blog posts this week.
Let’s dive into the links, shall we?

We are now 28 weeks into the latest Warcraft expansion. While I’ve always defended Legion as the best Team 2 has released, I never really understood why I said it. Yes, there is a lot of content. Yes, players are engaged. And yes, Azeroth feels alive again. But, none of this made me log in every day. It wasn’t until I began to level my alts where I discovered how good we have it in this expansion.
Another Sunday morning. To everyone experiencing Daylight Savings today, wouldn’t it be great if they just did away with it? For those who list time zones anywhere on your site, page or signature – remember to change from ST to DT! Incorrect time zone listing is a serious pet-peeve of mine.
But, it is Sunday and you want links. Here are the links:
It has been almost a month since I began the minimalist gamer project. The decision to attempt Warcraft minimalism has reinvigorated my interest in the game reaching a level is hasn’t been at since Burning Crusade. While I did log in every day during Warlords of Garrisons, I did not necessarily find it fun. It was more of a requirement because of all the gold to be made. But now, having a renewed purpose, a goal and a project to work on every time I enter the game, it makes for an incredible playing experience. The fun has returned to Azeroth, and it was all because of the following three steps.
