Interview Week (Autumn Dreamwalker)

Welcome to the third day of interviews will well known Wizards/ Pirates around the Spiral! Today I'm posting an interview from the one and only FAMOUS (or well known) Autumn Dreamwalker! I really hope you enjoy this great interview! 

Me: Hello Autumn! Before we start the interview could you tell everyone a little about yourself?

Autumn: My name is Jennifer. I am a Gemini and I love reading, spending time with my family and watching movies. Hahaha :P Seriously though, I started playing W101 in September 2010. I saw an ad for it on Facebook and clicked it. I was addicted pretty much right away! Since then I have made numerous wizards and started a blog. I was also lucky enough to win a P101 beta code back in August, so I have been playing on there as well.

Me: You're FAMOUS, and you own a blog called Secrets of the Spiral, How did you start blogging?

Autumn: Lol I'm not famous (Lol yes you are!) but yes, I do have a blog. I started blogging because it looked fun. I also wanted to help new wizards by providing guides and information. I have a great friend who has a blog and talking with him about blogging gave me so many ideas to write about. The hardest part about  starting up was thinking of a name. It took me two weeks to think of "Secrets of the Spiral."

Me: Who Inspired you to start blogging?

Autumn: Actually, you did! Before you told me you had a blog, I had no idea about the Wizard101 blogging/fansite community, and you seemed like you enjoyed it so much, I really wanted to try it out myself. Btw, Thanks for that! It has been a lot of fun, and I have met some pretty amazing people since starting my blog! :) (Oh wow, I'm glad you started blogging! I can't believe I inspired you to start blogging, that is great! That made my day :)

Me: Are you planning on submitting your site to Pirate101 or Wizard101 for Official Status??

Autumn: I have considered submitting my site, but I don't think I'm going to. I think that for me, becoming official would make me enjoy blogging less. I feel like there would be more pressure to blog more often and maybe blog about different things. And that would make it seem more like a job, instead of a fun hobby. I might be wrong about that, but I really don't think becoming official is for me :)

Me: Okay, lets talk a little bit about the new game Pirate101, when you first got your Beta Key what did you think about the game and do you love this game? :)

Autumn: First, let me say YES YES YES!!! I really do love Pirate101. If I had to choose one game to play, Pirate101 would definitely win. When I first started, I was kinda in shock from winning my Beta code still, so I don't think I even noticed that much of the opening sequence :P But once I started playing, I was in awe. The battling style did take a little getting used to, but it is amazing! I think almost everything about this game is pretty perfect! 

Me: Wow, same here! Now.. Lets talk more about Twitter, How did you create #twirates ???

Autumn: Well, Wizards on Twitter (#twizards) were trying to think of a name for the new Pirates. I thought Twizards came from TW-itter w-IZARDS. (If that makes sense) Idk if that is actually where it came from, but I kind of just combined Twitter and Pirates the same way, getting Twizards. I was kind of joking when I said it, but it stuck.

Me: Here that? Autumn created that :) I was a witness! Now.. back to blogging, do you have any secrets for Secrets of the Spiral's future?

Autumn: I do have a few things coming up, hopefully starting in November. I would like to have a couple of contests and maybe do my own series of interviews with people in the community. I am also planning on adding lots more information, especially about Pirate101, once it goes live! :)

Me: To conclude this interview, could you give out any advice you have to Wizards/ Pirates that are planning on starting a site or blog? :)

Autumn: My biggest advice is to start a blog because you enjoy it! Not for fame or anything else. Also, never give up. As long as you like your blog and are having fun, nothing else matters. Also post links on Facebook, Twitter and anywhere else you can. Let people know about your site! The W101 blogger community is awesome, and is very helpful, so don't be afraid to ask for help! And last, but not least, almost any design idea is possible! Just remember, Google is your friend! Good luck!

Me: Wow Autumn, I really enjoyed interviewing you! Let me say the advice you said above is great! I'm glad more people know about you (I'm sure everyone does since you're famous!) Let me say this though, Autumn is 100% right, Enjoy blogging NOT FOR FAME, but for the enjoyment of helping, or having fun because its a hobby :) If you turn into a Fansite one day remember your FANSite. Okay? :) Good luck everyone, and don't forget to watch my blog for another interview tomorrow and one last interview Friday!! Have fun in the Spiral and Thanks again FAMOUS Autumn Dreamwalker ( She adds: I still can't believe THE famous Edward Lifegem wanted to interview me! Thanks, it was a lot of fun! :)) NP, and I'm not famous!! :D

Yup, choosing a name that isn't already taken is SUPER hard. Took me 3 weeks to think of Pirate101 Skyrider. Actually, someone recommended that name to me.
