Unfortunately, it’s with a twinge of sadness that I must announce that I’m withdrawing from the Extra Life event this year. It’s become increasingly apparent that I’m attempting to juggle way too many things and in order to focus on the most important things (family, job, house), I’m going to have to make the tough decision to let some things go. The first of these things will be the Extra Life event. I still firmly believe in supporting this worthy cause, and this is partially why I need to give it up. I can’t dedicate the amount of time to Extra Life that it deserves. Raising money takes a lot of effort, but I was hoping that my momentum from last year would carry over, which it didn’t. I also grossly underestimated the effect of leaving the popular LOTRO Players News podcast. These two things have led to a very tepid response to my Extra Life 2015 efforts, and I simply don’t have time to beat the bushes.
Since I’ve already created my Extra Life Page, it will remain open for the duration of the year. Feel free to donate, just know that no stream will be forthcoming. If you’d like to follow another Extra Lifer, I’d recommend following Liore – I think she’s got some cool things planned, and she’s nearly at her goal!
