Sorry for the lack of posting this week, who would have thought that splitting my time between three booths at PAX East last weekend would have left me this exhausted. Oh well. Despite losing my wallet on the second night I had a great time, met lots of amazing people and saw so many inspiring games. Getting to meet fellow bloggers Liz (Being Geek Chic) and Kaitlin (PwnLove) was an absolute highlight, as was all the support I received in the light of my own boneheadedness in misplacing my wallet in a foreign city. Sigh.
I’ll be sharing more details, plus all my fabulous PAX loot next week, so stay tuned for that.
