Summary Post for the d30 Challenge Which Ended Yesterday

Summary Post for the d30 Challenge Which Ended Yesterday
OK folks...this is it...

My only "real" promoted post on this subject since I announced I'd be taking part in the d30 Challenge as proposed by Mark over at Creative Mountain Games....and subsequently tweaked by me,

As far as I know only three people took up the gauntlet....I could be wrong:
           +Mark CMG Clover
           +Matthew Schmeer
           +Me (duh)

The esteemed +Dyson Logos lightly complained that he didn't care for this themed post a day bit, and while he seems to be a pretty stand-up guy, his opinion probably means jack squat. I thought he did have a good point though, so while I participated in this d30 challenge I did not actively promote it. For me this was an exercise in making more frequent and smaller posts while not necessarily getting to choose the content.

I took this as an opportunity to stretch a small bit and get out of my comfort zone, something I think we all need to do more often I might add. Good content, bad content....doesn't matter as much as the effort.

Below is the question that was asked each day, a TL;DR summation of my answer, and a link to the post if you want to read it for yourself:
