I've you've been following me on any of the various social medias, or reading the Patreon blog posts, you've already heard about this, but the time has finally come to make it official. After a full decade of attending, Conventional Wisdom is finally skipping the con at which it was born. I really do hate to bail on something that's such a big deal to so many people, but the cost and logistics of traveling out of state for conventions is just too much of an obstacle to work around right now, ESPECIALLY if said convention is right in the heart of Washington DC. I was trying to find a way to pull off the trip without having to actually chip in on a room, but the more complications piled up and other people dropped out of going and I took long hard looks at whether or not I actually WANTED any of this mess, the more it just wasn't worth it. It's gonna feel VERY weird seeing all the tweets and pictures from Otakon and not being there, but sometimes that's just how things work out.

So... just what the heck is going on with Conventional Wisdom, then? Well, there's still more Animazement comics for Patreon, obviously. Also, even if I'm not hitting the road for cons, there's still a few more local events I'll be covering. Between those and another round of ConCONcon comics, there's still gonna be a steady stream on Conventional Wisdom material coming out for the rest of the year. And before anyone asks: Yes, I AM still gonna try to go to MAGFest. As long as I save my money the rest of this year, I THINK I can justify one big splurge come January. And there IS a way you can help make sure that happens *coughPatreoncough*

Oh, and if you couldn't care less about these dumb webcomics but are worried that that this means there won't be any Awesomely Bad Japanese Music Videos, I at least have some good news for you!

Don't feel bad. I skipped last year because I had JUST had the baby and was still recovering from pushing a 7-pound human out of my body.

I was going to go this year, but she barely tolerated the drive to Ichibancon and Hero's Con. A 5-hour drive didn't seem like an entirely bright idea. Plus, if she just wasn't having it, I could easily come home from a local-ish con. Not so much with a convention two states away from home.
