It's a BLOG Captain, but not as we know it.

One of own, Uncle Bear, needs our help.

I want to preface this post by stating that I’ve been working on it since I read Berin’s personal Blog post this afternoon.  While working on this post I came across this item over at The Bone Scroll.  I want to ask forgiveness from the network for throwing this onto the feed.

I have been following Uncle Bear over at his site and his social network over at Ning since 2007.  I am proud to be one of his Dire Paladins.  It was Uncle Bear’s inspiration that caused me to shift from posting exclusively at the Cafe and branching out on my own.  I have never met the man face-to-face but I consider him one of my best friends.

Right now he should be on cloud 9 but isn’t.  His passion is bearing fruit but his passion is not meeting his and his lovely wife’s needs.  I know the economy sucks right now and I won’t bore you with my own trials and tribulations.  Those of you who frequent my blog know what I’m going through and I hope that you all will jump on board with this.  My grandfather once cautioned me about feeling despondent, “I thought I was bad shape because I had no shoes, until I met the man with no feet.”

I must have written and rewritten this article 10 times.  I’m having difficulty articulating this.  Berin would NEVER come out and ask for our help.  That said, I am in agreement with the Bonemaster.  I have benefited from Berin’s kindness, praise, and his postings.  I would like to do something to help him out.

Berin we want to Help.  How can we do it?

  1. One thing to do is call Geico and get a quote about insurance. Even if you don’t sign up, Berin gets a referral bonus. Berin asks us to call “800-342-9070 and refer to promotion code 133994. You need to use the promo code for me to collect the bounty.”

  2. Clicking on either the Donate button or the Amazon wish list button at the upper left of his site will put money directly in Berin’s pocket.

  3. Berin just DMed me. Pimping the quote from Geico CAN get him in trouble. A better way to help is to buy Amazon stuff from his site.

  4. If you call for a quote, do so for its own merits: to get good insurance and save yourself money. If you’re going to call solely because you feel it’s to my benefit, please save your time and the time of the nice sales people and don’t call.

    I appreciate people wanting to help. I’m embarrassed. I don’t deserve the friends I have.
