An Appeal Upon Returning.

Hello again,

It’s been longer than I realized since I’ve written here, and I have some ideas on how I’d like to improve my blog as I return to it. I think it will help me organize my ideas if I refocus on a few major topics. Writing and books, science and other geeky news, and gaming, mostly. There will still be an occasional recipe and other randomness, because I love finding new things to share.

Today I’ve signed up for an event on short notice, and I’m sorry I couldn’t give more fair warning. I’m seeking sponsors for the Extra Life gaming marathon this Saturday, October 15th. I’ll be playing one of my favorite old MMOs – Anarchy Online.

Here’s a link to my sponsor page:

Extra Life - Play Games. Heal Kids.

All the proceeds from the marathon are going to support Children’s Miracle Network hospitals. I’m playing in support of UH Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital here in Cleveland, Ohio. I think it’s hard to find a family in Cleveland whose life hasn’t been touched by the skilled teams at this hospital. I had friends growing up who might not have lived without the care they received there. And I have friends now whose children are thriving thanks to their incredible doctors.

I’ll be straight-up honest with you guys: I don’t plan to play a full 24 hours on this. I just can’t with my family’s crazy schedule. They come first, gaming is just for fun. I just thought it might be nice to use my fun time to give back a little. If you have the money to spare, please click through and pledge what you can. All donations are 100% tax-deductible.

Thanks for your support,

Geargoyle
