Metroblogging Launches Blog for Fictional World

Posted on April 14, 2006

Metroblogging, a network of city blogs, has launched its first blog for a fictional place. The Metroblogging Azeroth blog covers the fictional location of Azeroth. Azeroth is an Earth-like planet in the World of Warcraft (WOW) game where most of the game's action takes place. WOW is an extremely popular MMORPG that has millions of members.

Boing Boing jokes that Internet marketers will soon refer to WOW and MMORPG blogging as MMORPBLOGGING. Many WOW players are also enthusiastic bloggers themselves. It is an interesting move for Metroblogging. Will blogs for Middle Earth, Narnia and Coruscant be next?
