Carpe Blogiem: Staycation and New Patreon Plan

I've had a lot of things happen in the last 4-6 weeks that have resulted in me being mentally fried. I need some time off for a while so I'm taking it. I plan on still blogging for the next two weeks, but my interaction with others is going to be low to nonexistent. I won't be on the forums or discord and I'm setting my email to autoreply. The only exception to this will be freelancing related work (which I think I've mostly taken care of) and personal emails. I still plan on running my GURPS campaign, but plan on doing little writing if I can help it. I'm contemplating doing some work on my room (a few little things to make things more comfy).

Basically, I need time to veg. My family is taking care of mom now and I'm at a point where I feel comfortable with her health that I can be more hands off. (for those of you who didn't know my mother was severely ill at the beginning of may and was hospitalized for mild sepsis, dehydration, etc. They had to remove her knee replacement hardware so she's now immobile for at least 3 months until the infection clears and she can have a fourth knee replacement on that leg.)

So I'm vegging. I also want time to think about Patreon more. I think I've come up with a way to archive past specials in a way to allow specific tier access. I also want to set up some voting mechanisms and a way to release back specials to everyone. Still thinking. I feel confidant I'll have a solution by the beginning of July or end of June. Still working out some particulars.

Anyways. That's it. I'll see y'all when I get back. Thanks again for reading.

  1. Carry on my friend. If you need an ear, you know where I am.

  2. Yes, Chris. If you need anything, just call, email, or message me.

  3. Sounds like a good plan. You've been very, very active for a long while. A break is thoroughly reasonable.

  4. I know what it's like to get fried. Burnout should be avoided at all costs.

    By the way. I'm more or less back on my feet now. If you're interested in getting another player for one of your GURPS campaigns, give me a shout-out.

    Take care, brother.

  5. Thanks folks. I've decided to cut it short because there are things that need be done so I'm going to do them and take a weekend or half a week for me after they are done.
