It’s already the 2nd of August, but like the student scrambling to turn in their homework assignment at the VERY LAST SECOND, I’m putting the finishing touches on my very first Blaugust post. Yes, I’m joining a community event for the first time in what seems like years. Blaugust is a community-wide event held every year and headed by Belghast from Tales of the Aggronaut. The concept is simple: bringing together bloggers, old and new, from around the community in hopes to rejuvenate what it was that inspired so many to begin putting down thoughts and paragraphs to share with others.
I’ve read a number of Blaugust posts written by others over the past few summers, but have never signed up myself…this ends tonight. I was encouraged by Meghan from Meghan Plays Games to actually, you know…participate in something. I signed up for a 30-day blog challenge within my first few months of blogging and I just remember being overwhelmed at the prospect of getting something written every. single. day for an entire month. This time around I’m setting my sights a bit lower, but still intend to push myself just enough to stay motivated and focused…it could happen? The plan is to get two posts written per week through the rest of the month, anything more than that is a bonus. Since beginning my blogging adventure in February 2019, I’ve generally attempted to post something on a weekly basis. My creative output(just go with it, alright?) has slowed down considerably in the past 14 months or so, but I’m hoping to get back into the rhythm of writing regularly. Here goes nothing I guess?
I have a few ideas that I’m working on(i.e. title and header image) and plan to share over the next few weeks – spoilers: MORE of my FromSoft game bullshit, but I’m also leaving some room for improvisation as some of the blog posts that I’ve actually felt somewhat pleased with have been almost ENTIRELY made up on the spot. I know a lot of the bloggers that have already thrown down the Blaugust gauntlet and have managed to read a few of them already. Looking forward to checking out all the other posts in the coming weeks!
So, uh…see you around?
