Artist’s tables, website rewrite, Magfest in Maryland

Greetings from the convention founder! :)

Just a quick note to let you know that we are in the final stages of the website rewrite to make things easier to read through. We also will be updating the site with the form from where artists and vendors can register to exhibit.

If you are curious about all of that, you can get a general idea of how we did it by looking through “Archive” on our top bar.

We are back from Magfest this weekend and wanted to thank you all for purchasing all of our squeaky owls. Many of you registered as well. Meeting you and talking with you really inspires us to make this con even better every year. Thank you!

If you’d like to see pictures from this weekend, you can see them on our Facebook as well.

We Intervened and Inspired this weekend at Magfest in Maryland:

We sold our squeaky owls – when you purchase one of these you also are donating to support the event. We SOLD OUT of all of them:

I was drawing some comic goodness at the table. This will be a comic over at Onezumi.com in the next few days:

I found an awesome flower for my hair yay:

Janice, our new Exhibition Hall coordinator made this for me! SQUEE:

We love our friends over at Squishable.com. If you attended a last Intervention, you had a really great chance of winning one of these guys:

For once, I remembered to wear my Intervention T- Shirt. PROOF:

I played SO MANY games in the arcade room at Magfest. This was less than half of the room – more like 1/8th of the room. It was huge in reality:

I hope you all had a great weekend! I now have a flat tire from my trip home. Nothing goes perfectly in life, but if you keep thinking positively things will be great! :D

Intervention will have a table at MAGFest this weekend (January 6,7, and 8th) in National Harbor, Maryland. For those of you who prefer to buy your registrations in person you can get your registration for our 2012 event at our current “Early Owl” rate of only $30 for the full 3 days of the Intervention 2012. Harknell (me) and Onezumi will be at the table as well, so come chat with us about the event, or give us your feedback or suggestions.

Upward and onward into 2012!

Hi guys! :D Happy New Year! I hope none of you had a fire at your NYE party that involved a fire extinguisher extinguishing all of your food. Heh…. ;D

Our marketing and advertising stuff is almost all written up. We are taking a lot of care in this process because we believe that it’s not just about us – it’s about the community and the people we work with. If we don’t feel that we can add value to a business we won’t take their money. Also, if we don’t like the business, we won’t take their money.

It may take more work to get things done, but this isn’t a game to us. We aren’t about throwing buzzwords at you or any of that stuff. I’m not that type of person, and my event isn’t that type of event. Subtlety has never been my strong suit. I learned early in life that honesty and straightforward talk saves a lot of time and creates better results.

This month we will be venturing around Maryland and the internet to see which businesses can buy ads in our con book and on our website. These ads and sponsorships help us pay for the guests, programming, and events at the con. Working closely with local and internet businesses this early allows us to create events that help them and our attendees better. Sections of this site are also being rewritten and redesigned to improve upon what we already have. I am also looking for new ways to make things better in every vector of it.

Newcomers to our event may not realize that we are all-volunteer and most of the pre-event work is done by me and Harknell. I am relieved that we have added 2 staff members to help with the Artist’s Alley and Programming this year. For the past 2 years we were doing it all our self. It’s just not possible. :) Delegation can be awesome!

So far, what I have in store for you for 2012 is so cool I might explode with anticipation. Intervention 2012 will be even more amazing than 2011. I can’t thank you all enough for supporting us in our early years. Whether you attended, told someone about us, posted a click-able link to us, donated, or simply gave great feedback – you are appreciated in every way.

Intervention is the most important thing to me. I founded it because I want to put something out there that is positive, fun, educational, and helpful to people. This means that you all are that important to me, because you are who I am doing this for. :)

Thank you guys, I hope to see you all at the con in 2012. I’ll be posting updates here as we progress. You can also:
