Should I revive this blog?

So, I'm thinking about signing up to run a game at GenCon this year (2020). Probably a 5e overhaul of the CACODAEMON TRANSLUCENT PLANETOID scenario I ran at SoCal Minicon in 2011 (see review of session by Telecanter here). Cosmic horror Spelljammer essentially.

I'd love to talk about this, and other material, some more. Share art. etc.

Also, I'm thinking about starting this blog again after... um... 6 years...?

Is anyone still out there?

Are blogs still even a thing anymore?

;)

  3. Blogs are IMO still a thing. Blogs are a great place for someone to share their thoughts and ideas. I am an OD&D ref, I do not specifically follow newer versions; however, that said, I find usable ideas almost everywhere. Please restart your blog here, I am sure you have a lot to say that will prove useful to many in one way or another. Sadly too many great blogs have shuttered there doors over the years, even sadder many have hidden themselves from pubic view and much, much sadder some of have been deleted altogether. Set a new trend by bringing yours back.

    Yes, people still read blogs, post away and your readers will return.

  8. I'm hoping the blogosphere will pick up again.
    I don't read reddit, which is where I guess most of the action has gone. I just don't like the format.
    There isn't a message board forum which really hits the spot.
    A good blog is still worthwhile & there's still a couple I read religiously & others I skim & sample.

  14. Glad you're back! This was always one of my go-to blogs, along with Telecanter and few others now in limbo.
    And congrats on tenure!

  15. Bring it on back, Bob! I still follow a list of blogs, though I seem to be on a few Discord servers more often, nowadays.

  16. I asked myself the same question this morning: "Are [OSR] blogs still a thing?" Google gave me a list of 30+ blogs. I'm going through them now to see if they are active. Yours is the first without a post since November 2020. Most have at least one post already in December. They also have commenters, i.e. readers. Some of the blog names I recognize from years and years ago. My answer to the question is, Yes, blogs are still a thing, and a thriving community revolves around them. Please, do come back, Bob.

  17. As we are aware of the fact already that commercial inspection is very different from residential inspection hence the expertise needed for this to be done are different as well. Commercial inspector is someone who has the necessary experience needed for a commercial inspection which needs certifications and education required by the state along with a portfolio that states that they have done it before and the customers were happy and satisfied with the outcome of the inspection. As neglected as this perspective can be because there is more work when you are just a home inspector, being a commercial building inspector can be pretty rewarding as well because commercial buildings obviously cover more area hence the money will be good and as commercial building inspections are covered by companies, everything will be done more professionally along with the less hassle of having to involve in negotiations. All in all, commercial inspection can be pretty rewarding if a real estate inspector gets a good grip over it.

  18. While there are a ton of residential inspectors present around us always luring us to get a home inspection done from them and many home inspection companies are offering numerous perks if we get a home inspection done from them, when it comes to a commercial inspection, the list narrows down to a limited number and the reason behind this is that commercial property inspection is something on a bigger level and it requires a lot of expertise in order to get it right. When we search with words like commercial property inspection near me while residing in Atlanta, we may get a handsome amount of commercial inspectors on the search results but we should know what to look for before taking any decision. Champia Real Estate Inspections is a company offering expert services for people who are looking for a skilled and experienced commercial real estate inspector to help them in their time of need. They have been working since 1987 and have a number of positive reviews which is a guarantee itself that you will not be disappointed when to get their services.

  19. Commercial property inspection is a term which is used when the help of a real estate inspector is needed on a bigger level. It is not just about a house anymore. In order to get done with this process, experience and skill is needed because we are never sure what will be in the box for us because in a place like Atlanta, commercial properties can be of any size and it is not possible for a regular home inspector to bluff on this level that he can satisfy the clients completely. Commercial property inspectors are experts who know exactly what they are dealing with. They are aware that anything can be present on the commercial property and it can be of any size so they need to be prepared prior to the inspection day and they should know how they are going to satisfy the client who is looking for their help regarding their commercial property.

  20. As much as home inspections are important,commercial property inspection also holds a vast importance as offices are considered to be the second place where people spend most of the time in a day. It is very important to get the place inspected thoroughly as EPA reported around 21000 deaths annually due to radon exposure which causes lung cancer in non-smokers. Radon inspection cost is nothing as compared to the price you will have to pay when prolonged radon exposure will result in causing major health issues. Radon is a colorless odorless gas present in the air all around us in trace amounts but it becomes a hazard when it gets entrapped inside the house and the residents of the house are exposed to it. The safe levels of radon as suggested by EPA is 4pCi/l and the amount more than it is alarming and you need to install a radon mitigation system at your commercial property as soon as possible.

  25. What do people think about a business having the need to outsource a call center to get help as a Calling Solution Home Inspection is also one of those industries in which assistance from outer sources is present as performing the actual home inspection is different and being available all day for query calls is different. But this does not mean that these calls are not important, they are equally important as a sale because out of all these calls, a study showed that there is a 33.33% chance that one call is a potential sale which means that if you are getting 5 calls, 1 out of them can be a potential one but if you miss the call due to your commitment to work which is not a bad thing, you will eventually lose more work which means loss. Therefore, in an industry like Home Inspection Call Center is a word that sounds like a blessing due to the mere fact that home inspection companies need professionals to answer their query calls and satisfy their customers about the services they are going to get beforehand so that they are 100% sure about their decision and once the sale is locked, the cause is served. But this cannot be done without the help of a third party who treats your business like their own, gets to know it, knows how to satisfy your customers by highlighting your positive points and book and schedule appointments without any clash and extreme professionalism. To your luck, Inspector Call Center is exactly doing this in order to provide you the extreme comfort of just doing your job, giving the maximum output out there without having to worry about the fact that someone out there is calling you for help and you are not available because gone are such days, now you can perform your job with 100% effort and respond to all the calls and queries at the same time, all thanks to ICC.

  26. In an industry like Home Inspection Answering Calls Solution is very important as you get your job through calls so if you miss the calls you are getting as inquiries, you will eventually lose the sales. Home inspection services hold the essence of a good impression by delivering 100% customer satisfaction which means that at the end of the day, if your customers are not happy with your services, this will impact your business badly but a very important point that is missed that a person will only book an inspection if he is convinced on call about what he will be provided with once he does it. If a person calls a company, worried about the state of his house and call is not picked, he will definitely call the next best option to fix this problem. And even if the call is attended and he is not satisfied with what he is being told, he will not proceed further and book an inspection. This is where people need to understand the importance that Call Center Solution for Real Estate holds. If a person is satisfied, he will definitely give you the job and spread positive word of mouth about the services he got from the moment he called the company till the moment the inspection was done.

  27.

  28. A popular concept is present in the market which is termed as the cost of a missed call which is not understood by all. People are not aware of the importance of an inquiry call as there are many coming every day and when you are working in a home inspection company, you are often busy with the actual task which is a successful home inspection but how will you get a job of performing a home inspection if you keep missing calls? In the industry of Home Inspection Lead Management is important because 1 out of 5 calls can be potential and losing a potential call will end up in you losing a sale which will affect the business. When we talk about Customer Service Home Inspection industry needs it the most because when people call a home inspection company, they are often worried about the condition of their house or what affect it will be having on the health of the residents of their house so in order to make sure that a customer is satisfied with the response he gets when he calls a company for help. This is where Inspector Call Center comes for your rescue by saving your business from losing potential sales and leaving your callers content.

  29. Suppose a person is working solely as an owner of a home inspection company and he does not need to hire more people as he thinks that he is doing his job perfectly and does not want to add more people to it because they may ruin it for him by providing compromised services but as he is always on the go to provide his best services, he often tends to miss calls or cannot respond to them because he is busy all the time. Then he comes across a solution which means that all his calls will be answered by someone else who will make sure to do this job perfectly giving him more time to complete his inspections peacefully and more jobs are waiting for him as all of his inquiry calls are getting attended. When provided with a proper Customer Care solution home inspection became a stress free job for him as he knew that he only has to focus on one thing which he does the best. Believe it or not but once he became aware about the benefits of Inspector Service Group his life became tension free and his sales boosted up instantly because no potential calls were being missed.
