What do you do for WoW Insider?

Oh, dear. As far as writing goes, I currently write [hide]WoW Archivist[/hide], [hide]Two Bosses Enter[/hide], and [hide]The Queue[/hide] (Mondays and Wednesdays), and I handle [hide]MMO Roundup[/hide] to bring you stories from the larger MMO universe that you may be interested in from our sister site [hide]Massively[/hide]. In the past, I’ve contributed to Hybrid Theory (long deceased, good riddance), [hide]Know Your Lore[/hide], [hide]Ask a Lore Nerd[/hide] (since folded back into Know Your Lore and The Queue), and [hide]Spiritual Guidance[/hide]. I’ve also played temporary fill-in for [hide]The Light and How to Swing It[/hide] (retribution), [hide]Lichborne[/hide], and … you know what, I’ll stop now, because that list is way too long.

Behind the scenes, my role is largely the same as the other senior editors — we make sure WoW Insider keeps chugging on as it should. We make sure assignments are being turned in, we make sure stories are being written up and posted in a timely fashion, we handle our social media outlets, and a whole load of other backend administrative stuff that, if we’re doing our jobs well, you guys will never even need to think about. I like to think that one of my best talents is my ability to find the talent in other people and pull it to the surface, by force if necessary. Being a senior editor, I get to utilize that every day.

Essentially, we’re the guys who let [hide]Fox Van Allen[/hide] be the beautiful shining star that he is. You really don’t want the fine details on all of that.[hide]Continue reading About the Bloggers: Alex Ziebart[/hide]Filed under: [hide]About the Bloggers[/hide][hide]About the Bloggers: Alex Ziebart[/hide] originally appeared on [hide]WoW Insider[/hide] on Wed, 13 Jul 2011 09:00:00 EST.
