The name's Pierre. Pierre Goldbloom, to be precise. This is my blog. Providing I do my job properly, it will teach you everything you need to know about leading a guild. This isn't going to be two posts about how to get signatures to start a mediocre attempt at a raiding guild. This is about building communities and improving the lives of everyone you come into contact with. Whether you're just starting out or a veteran guild master, you can learn something from this site.

Please be aware that most of my experience and examples are drawn from playing World of Warcraft (WoW), although some of the bigger themes here can applied to other games - and even real-life management.

Unlike forum gurus such as Wytch and Ashling on the US WoW forums or Maelmoor and Leonora on the EU ones, I think differently. These gurus provide rational, general advice that can be applicable to almost anyone in the situations they describe. Folks like these deserve massive kudos for counseling people in Guild Relations. Leading A Guild is does not function like a forum topic, however. Although I encourage everyone to comment on my posts in the appropriate section, you'll realise quickly that I definitely have my own way of doing things. I'm a quasi-fascist and objectivist, but I like to think both of these beliefs shine through positively in my entries.

By reading this blog you are agreeing to my good humour agreement. Sometimes I may seem outwardly hostile to a strategy you or your guild have been applying. Do not take personal offence to this. Leading A Guild is all about providing alternate solutions to familiar problems. I am not saying your method doesn't work, but some guilds may find my way better. Heck, sometimes I just joke around with some topics. I'm trusting you, as a reader and potential commentator, to re-read anything I've said that's upset you before making a comment on it. I reserve the right to delete any comments I find disrespectful or truly unhelpful.

Initially I'll try to update the blog twice every month. I'm going to keep it open until 2010, but if you guys really end up liking what I write, then I'll expand into the next year.

If you'd love to argue with my techniques, make a guest post, want a one-on-one consultation or wish to advertise on this site, mail me.

I always credit images that are brought in from other sites.

Thank you, and enjoy!
