Has it really been almost two and a half years since I posted anything to this blog? Obviously, I've been active on Facebook, G+ (which is going away), MeWe (which is newish), Twitter (a little bit), Twitch (less so), and YouTube (not much really). Still, since in the ten years prior to that I had posted nearly 6K times to the CMG Blog Triad, two and a half years seems like a very long time since "going dark" on September 2nd, 2016.
In "meat space," I have been business managing the excellent Lake Geneva Games and that's been going great. It's wonderful when a brick and mortar game store can last even one year, let alone more than five, and LGG has been going strong for eight years with 2018 being a record-breaking year, indeed! I'm very proud of all we've accomplished and am hopeful 2019 will continue that trend of growth. I've also been regularly gaming with the LG lunchtime crowd on Tuesdays and Fridays. Not every week but more often than not. Managing the store has prevented me from getting to the Pizza Ranch on Third Sundays and the Plymouth UCC in Burlington on Third Saturdays, which I miss very much but it can't be helped. I've been pretty busy but there are some other things I wish to also do.
All that is to say that as we head into the new year there are also a number of other things I wish to add into the mix. I'm definitely getting a 1E AD&D group together to stretch my DMing legs again. It's been over a year since running a regular D&D game and I feel overdue. I've got some ideas for a few CMG offerings I want to put together and even a simple podcast. At the least, on those creative fronts, I also want to revisit blogging here on the Triad with more regularity, though certainly not everyday on all three blogs as I was doing a while back, such as they were. Sure, it was mostly linking to interesting and inspirational gaming stuff but it still occupied quite a bit of time and I don't think my current schedule will allow for that pace again.
Anywho, I am back at it and will be more active. See you soon!
