[When we're looking for blogs on a specific topic, we'll put out a Bloggers Wanted call. Check out the blog prompt, write your own response in the Community Blogs and tag it with the "Bloggers Wanted Essay Response" tag, and you may see your blog promoted to the front page. -- JRo]
With PAX coming up soon, I thought it'd be interesting to do a Bloggers Wanted topic that's a bit different from the norm -- I want to hear your best convention story.
Ideal blogs will be about gaming conventions, or at least feature gaming in some way, but it's not a requirement. Just tell us your favorite memory from any nerdy convention you've been to and help everyone get hyped up for PAX in a couple weeks! No weird fetish sex stories from the time you went to the Adult Baby Diaperfur Yaoi convention though -- keep your story under an NC-17 rating.
To participate, just write a CBlog, title it "Conventions: [Your Blog's Title]", and select the Bloggers Wanted Essay Response tag. Throughout the week, keep an eye on the blogs and get some discussions going with your fellow Dtoiders! We'll keep this topic up a week or two after PAX wraps up as well, so if PAX is your first convention make sure you do something crazy you'll be able to write about afterwards!
