Highlights from the Blogger Posts VI

One of the challenges of blogging Fantasy Faire is that it is not just a shopping event, it is not just a quest, or Literary Festival, or endless parties or roleplay or performances or… you get the point. Faire is many things to many people, but what it is underneath the fantasy community we all love and cherish, is a charity event.

Fantasy Faire supports Relay For Life, and through that, the American Cancer Society’s Global Initiative. This is not an easy subject to blog about regardless if your life has been influenced by cancer or not. If it has, writing about it might feel too personal, too painful. If it hasn’t, your words might feel empty lip service to you. Therefore it is never ever obligatory to blog about it, but I do always encourage those who wish to share their reasons to relay to do just that, to give voice to this deeper current within the Fairelands.

I’m not going to paraphrase, nutshell, or otherwise describe these posts, simply presenting a selection of many. Read these stories in the words they were written, and if you so choose, share your own.
