Well, I guess there's no easy way to do this introduction. I mean, I say I'm Blue of Bluestockings, but who the hell is that, right? I'm Kate Bullock, a Toronto local and big fan of the gaming world. I've playing table-top RPGs since I was 14 (a long time ago now) and been GMing them for just as long. I started when my mom got me the Orange Box for 3.0 when I was in 9th Grade and reverted to 2nd Edition D&D from there. A few years later I sunk my teeth into Deliria and CyberGeneration and have never really looked back.

My gaming career has moved from GM to player to convention GM to convention volunteer to freelance writer to editing to convention organizer and finally it's finding its way to game designer. I mean, I've always wanted to design, but I haven't really done it. So I'm working on a game, and no, it's not on the blog, but maybe one day. I've helped other folks with their games, and I've taken great pride in that, even if it was just play-testing.

I'm here to find support for the non-game design stuff I do. That means, the blog I write, Bluestockings. Or Blue's Blog. On the blog I talk about issues in the gaming community, the strife of running conventions, the fear of writing your own game, reviews of other people's games, and often times a round up of some of the stuff I'm playing. Mostly it's used to discuss things I think should be discussed in gaming, like love, family, sex, consent, and making space for minorities. 

With this Patreon, I'm asking for a little help with all the time I spend facilitating and working a payless job by asking for support with the blog. I post about two to four times a month, depending on what's going on, and every little bit helps!

Goals
$152 of $200 per Blog post
This would be amazing because it would mostly ensure I could actually afford the conventions I go to and it would allow me to take that time off of work without panicking. At $200 a post, I'll be able to go to Dreamation, Metatopia, Jiffycon, and maybe even GenCon without having to work 40 days straight ahead of time to make up the financial difference.
