May RPG Blog Carnival & Stuffer Shack Results

As expected, I didn’t win Stuffer Shack’s RPG Site of the Year Contest. The winner this year was the ever-amazing Gnome Stew. But that was, quite frankly, an astounding set of competitors. I felt a little like the amateur in a room of professionals. We had some dynamite sites with multiple authors, published volumes, sponsors, multiple social media streams, and long-standing work across different kinds of games. The other four competitors were out of my league- so it was incredibly nice to be considered alongside them. I do hope I get some feedback from the judges- the blog's a sidebar to the hobby for me, but I’d still like to make it better and stronger.

In any case, I wanted to give a heads up that I’ll be hosting May’s RPG Blog Carnival. My topic’s a fairly simple one: Campaigns I’d Like to Run. I’ll have a post up on Wednesday talking about the topic and inviting everyone to join in. I think it’s a pretty timely idea- given that we’re heading into summer, a time when campaigns often change out. I have some cool ideas and I really want to see what others have been cooking up but haven’t had a chance to run yet. If you have a blog or other similar online word-carrying service, consider writing up a post.
