In Wheeling, WV, there’s a YWCA, and they had their first Mini Convention this past Sunday, May 27th. It was like a comic convention, but small and only lasting from 12 pm to 5 pm, and admission was a donation of your choice to benefit the YWCA.

I came back Sunday night from 2 days of 3 Rivers Comic Con in Pittsburgh, and I had a BLAST! Obviously I’ve been to conventions before, but this was my first time at 3 Rivers CC. However, there were some things I did not expect from the show, but all of them were pleasant surprises. Continue reading “3 Things I Didn’t Expect From 3 Rivers Comic Con”
Oh hey, a super short video update to let you know I’m going to RathaCon this weekend in Athens, OH.
I went to RathaCon last year and it was a lot of fun. They asked me to come back again this year, to which I said, “OF FREAKING COURSE,” and if you’re in the area, you can see me May 7th and 8th at the Athens Community Center.
Well, a lot of the stories I’m writing recently (especially their’s in particular) take place in places I haven’t visited in a long while. Like Chicago. And Pittsburgh. And there are even some that may take place in New Mexico or Tennesee.
So I’m wondering…should I take some time away from conventions…so I can go on research trips?
Another friend of mine, Suzy, did a research trip in lieu of conventions, and that has inspired me to consider doing the same thing.
I have quite the travel bug, and I would love to do more of it so I can see new sights, meet new people, write about new things, and share more of my experiences.
Either way, whether I do more conventions or more research trips, I intend to write about them here on this blog.
Have any suggestions for places to go? Travel tips? just have something you gotta’ say? I would love to read about it in comments.
Thank you for reading and I will see you on Monday.
