State of the Dragon #133

This material was posted on patreon by Draconick

PATREON: We had our live chat this past weekend, and it was a lot of fun! Drafts are still going up here, so help yourself to those. I’m still looking to make some changes here, and plan to put together a survey or otherwise poll you Patrons to get your input, but everything in due time.

STREAMING: We had to skip our Monday stream this week. The absence was last minute and unplanned, so I apologize for that. I’ll see about making it up with another stream somewhere, but this week is hectic, so no promises. Still on track for Friday though! Last week’s streams were pretty good though, so I encourage you to check out the VODs for those if you missed any!

DISCORD: Cool place to hang out!

SOCIAL MEDIA: Probably limiting myself to Twitter this week, due to a general lack of bandwidth. I still want to branch out, but I don’t think I have the mental capacity to juggle multiple platforms at the moment.

BLOG: I’m doing some research on how to best proceed with this, mostly as relates to properly handling SEO. I also need to try to improve site performance overall, so that’s still on my task list. We’re working on it!

OTHER PROJECTS: I’ve got a big commission to handle, and one to follow up on with somebody else. I’ve also got a pitch to deliver, and more work I need to do to chip away at a larger project. I’d also like to pull a draft off the shelf and get it publish-ready, but I’m not sure which one or when. I doubt I’ll get to all of it, but I definitely need to do some of it!

PERSONAL LIFE AND GAMING: Alright, let’s get this out of the way. This week isn’t likely to be particularly productive, or even easy for me. I have family visiting from out of town, and have generally had a lot of demands on my time from them and other family members. There’s some other unpleasantness as well, seeing as my family as a whole flaunts COVID restrictions and I generally do not see eye to eye with them in a lot of ways. I know in many past updates, I’ve alluded vaguely to things being difficult on the home front, and this is certainly a part of that, and I’m only recently starting to get more comfortable articulating that (and even then, I may not always want to go into detail.) I’m honestly not comfortable where I am, and I’ve been putting up with it for a while, but it’s starting to wear on me a bit. I’ll still be here, and I’ll still be working, but I’m not at my best right now and might not be as active this week. Please respect that. Let’s hard shift. As far as gaming goes, I still plan to pursue that, I’ll check in and see how things are going on that front with those I was talking to already (or others who have reached out to offer,) or else I’ll start looking for something else. Might take time though either way. Wish me luck!

And that’ll do for now. My apologies for the inconvenience that this week will no doubt be. Thank you all for your patience. I’ll try to do my best by you regardless. Stay safe out there, everybody.
