C4C For New Year’s? It’s On Like Donkey Kong!



Normally, I’d take my children to our local First Night activities:

Always a great way to grind out the energy and boredom from my children.

We really had a blast last year

But the organizers got ambitious this year.  Too ambitious.  They thought it would be better to move the event, once again, from the local community college, to the convention center.

All of the noise, chaos, and confusion, under one roof.

Then they decided to let Ticketmaster handle the tickets.

$16.60 a pop?  For adults AND kids?  Oh HELL no!

$16.60 a pop? For adults AND kids? Oh HELL no!

Oh, how I wish I could just pop over to a local vendor and buy a button. That was the way it used to be done. And prices were more like $10 for adults, $5 for kids, 5 and under, free.

Oh well.  If the procedure had happened, instead of my guts protesting, I’d still be at home.  But I was hoping, ’til I saw “Ticketmaster” and “$16.60.”

So, I’m going to mount up and head back to C4C, which has been redubbed “Come for Company”, because we’re going to spread some Prosperous New Year to WordPress friends so they can have a Rockin’ New Year’s Eve, not a Lame-o Sucktastic New Year’s Eve.

Thundercats, HO!

Thundercats, HO!

  1. Ah, I was out all night and couldn’t join. Hope you guys had some good conversations over there!


  2. is C4C a pacific northwest thing? I’ve never heard of it


    • Not at all, Kenneth. It’s another WordPress community thing, started by ruleofstupid (RoS). I found out about it through Rarasaur.

      It started out as Company for Christmas, where WordPress bloggers could congregate and chat at Christmas time. It was especially meant for those bloggers that would not otherwise be away with family, or would otherwise be alone. The suggestion came up to take the concept further to other holidays, so RoS redubbed it Come for Company. I was posting about participating on New Year’s Eve, and it’s gone really well.
