I’d planned on doing an extensive post about this year’s Extra Life event, but even after a 7 hour “nap” my brain is still pretty worn out. I still want to post something, in an attempt to communicate how blown away I am by my friends and online community.
I started streaming at 7am November 7, just hoping to reach a $200 goal. By the end of the 24 hours I’d had to increase my goal twice, with a last-minute donation bringing my total to $400. Team Otterdown as a whole managed to bring in over $5000 in donations to help sick kids. The generosity is astounding, even more so when you realize that as a team, most of our donations came from right within The Secret World community. Continue Reading
And Otterdown and I will start streaming bright and early at 8am EST. To watch us both at once, check out http://multitwitch.tv/jennettsw/darkgryphon42.
I know the blog has been silent the last couple weeks as I adjust to my new schedule. Cramming two jobs together isn’t easy at the best of times, and in this case both places are relatively short-staffed. I have a personal thing against taking extra time off when my job needs me, so I’ve been making do.
…and yet, I still kept this weekend open for Extra Life, because the difference we make in the lives of so many kids is worth taking time off for in a way my other interests aren’t.
The Extra Life tab up top will still give more details to anyone who’s hearing about this charity fundraiser for the first time, and Otterdown has put up a great post with all the different giveaways and goings-on we have planned for the day. If you can’t donate, please still feel free to stop by and cheer us on, or pass the links around.
Oh – also if I make my donation goal I’ll be dying streaks in my hair. The color will be up for a vote between Lumie blue, Templar red, or Dragon green. 😉
Short post so I can get up in the morning. Next month should also be a little less crazy for me, with more updates here. Even with the holidays, my schedules look like they will cooperate better then!
As I get ready for the first day on the new job (Yay! And to be clear, this is a second job. No way am I leaving the humane society.), thought I’d do a quick update here. Continue Reading
With thanks to Jennet for making me such an awesome banner! 🙂 For more information, check out the Extra Life menu link.
I missed a killer party today, thanks to work.
A player from The Secret World, Katarina1, wanted to do something cool for his third anniversary with the game. (We were just recently celebrating the game’s third anniversary, if that tells you something.) He didn’t just want to throw a party, either. He invited anyone and everyone to a party/prize giveaway/trivia match/survival game/screenshot contest/fireworks display event! Even though I missed it, it’s a great example of some of the reasons I love this community. Continue Reading
Here I go with my first post for #Blaugust 2015! Since it’s the first of the month, this is going to be a bit different from most. I write articles for Holosuite Media on the first and fifteenth of each month. In the interest of not having to double post, I will instead link to my article there. Tomorrow, I’ll write a bit more about #Blaugust and why I signed up!
Want to join in on #Blaugust? There’s still time! Visit the Blaugust Initiative page, and then head over to the Nook to get signed up and see what everyone else is up to.
Off-schedule post today, primarily to raise awareness for #SGDQ2015. It’s streaming live at twitch.tv/gamesdonequick, today through August 1st. The schedule is listed on their website and they have some awesome titles planned. They kicked off with a 100% speedrun of Super Mario World 2: Yoshi’s Island, a favorite from my childhood and a stunning run to watch. (Forty flutters in one section!) Continue Reading
