Blog Roll

Funny daily blog
Blogography is a place to learn and grow by exposing yourself to the mind of David Simmer II, a brilliant commentator on world events and popular culture (or so he claims).

Self-Professed Dork who writes and games
Shamus Young is a self-professed dork (i.e. Software Engineer) that is my age and has similar enough interests.  Usually a good read.

HackMaster GM. Fictional weather girl. NaNoWriMo 5 time winner. Banished princess. Toastmaster.
This is my wife's blog. Carolyn is a much better writer than I am, as she is a six-time NaNoWriMo Winner!

Frugal By Choice, Cheap By Necessity
Sarah is a wife and mother who lives in a Seattle suburb.  Her blog has a bunch of good ideas and I find her writing style to be quite enjoyable.  Even if you don't subscribe to her family's eating style there are a ton of good bits of info you can glean from her blog.

RPG Blogger who discusses variant rules to older systems
Jeff is a role-player who likes discussing rules for various systems and genres.  He likes discussing new and variant rules.

Toy reviews and videos
This is my brother-in-laws much more successful blog.  He plays with toys, makes videos of it, and even reviews the toys.

His blog is extremely simple, right out of "Blogger for Dummies", but them nostalgic toy geeks love it.

How I learned to stop worrying and love all D&D
Hans Cummings is an author and a player of Roleplaying Games since 1982. You won’t see any deep breakdown of rules mechanics from him, nor will you see articles on builds, min-maxing, or anything like that. That’s not how he rolls.

The writings of Knights of the Dinner Table's Assistant Editor
Barbara Blackburn and her husband Jolly are dear friends of my wife and I.  Barb is an Assistant Editor for Kenzer & Company and one of the nicest people I know.

Very devout, but not the stupid-Christian-bitchy/pushy type.

Rants, raves, and well-timed silences
Mark Plemmons was the Jack-of-all-Trades man at Kenzer & Company that I dealt with whenever it came to the HackMaster Association and the big conventions. He's what we call "Good People"

Where frugal living is sexy, delicious, and fun.
This is a frugal-living blog I like to pop in own from time to time. Not everything is a great idea, at least for me, but there are some good things in there to be had for sure.

Voiding warranties one project at a time
Now I don't get to void warranties nearly as often as I'd like.  Some of it is resource based, but a lot of it is also skills based.  This blog compiles ingenious (and a few not-so-ingenious) hacks from around the world and web.  Great for inspiration and just to see what "fun" people can get up to.

Funny/Horrible/Pitiful Customer Service Stories
I've worked retail, mostly grocery stores, for some time.  One of the perks of the job, as well as it's curse, is seeing the sheer stupidity that is the dumb customer.  I find this site hilarious.

Tips, tricks, and technology for living better in the digital age
Lifehacker curates tips, tricks, and technology for living better in the digital age.  A great place to stop by to learn about new gadgets and figure out new ways of thinking about old problems (some you didn't know you had).
