50 Days to Dragon*Con: 2012 Edition (Tell me what to write!)

Hey y’all!  I skipped it last year, but this year I’m planning to do my 50 Days to Dragon*Con countdown!  Aren’t you excited?

I wanted to give y’all the opportunity to have a voice in this.  What would you like me to write about?  The last go-around, in 2010, focused primarily on fun, nerdy things that I enjoyed.  Nowadays, however, I consider myself pretty informed about Dragon*Con, so I’d happily expand my postings to my tips on how to survive and enjoy the convention.  Do you have nerdy topics about which you’d like me to write?  I can do that!  I plan on revisiting some anticipatory posts I wrote in 2010, to walk about how the reality was (ie: Game of Thrones, etc.)  But mostly I’ll be winging it–although hopefully, with your help, I won’t be totally winging it.

Anyways, chime in and let me know what you want to know!  I’m here to countdown with y’all, because I can Dragon*Con and so can you!  I’ll be starting this journey on July 11th, so let me know before then!

Hi guys!  I know I went away, I’ve been working on myself as a person (not really).

I wanted to give you a present on this hot Friday, which is a mere 69 (heh) days from Dragon*Con.  Yes,  it will soon be time for me to talk about Dragon*Con ALL THE TIME EVERY DAY. I bet you are so. excited.  I know I am.

Anyways, here is my present.  It just happened on the internet TODAY, so you can say that you were one of the first to see it:

Enjoy, and happy weekend!
