This year, in a moment of what can only be described as deluded hubris, I decided I would take part in Blaugust 2022 – 31 blog posts in 31 days. This coming from someone battling 3 posts a year of late. But, that was the problem, and the point.
For those of you new to Blaugust like me, it’s a blogging challenge that was started by the fabulous Belghast, where he challenges bloggers to make a post every day in August. There aren’t any hard and fast rules – you can blog about whatever you want! There are optional achievements that have been added this year for those who want a bit more of a challenge which vary in difficulty.
If you are interested in taking part, or just want a bit more info, check out Belghast’s Blaugust 2022 introduction post. There’s also a discord group if you’d like to read posts for others who are taking part.
What to expect from my Blaugust attempt
The obvious goal is to actually blog more often. Whilst I would be really pleased with myself if I could make 31/31, I’m not expecting to. I’ll just be happier with more than 1 post every couple of days. But, I do have a plan and a list of post ideas.
Side note – you may not have noticed, but my little blog has had a bit of an overhaul. I’m using a new design, and have expanded the content so it’s not just focussing on WoW. A big part of this was because I felt limiting myself to WoW posts was half the reason I wasn’t writing as much. My last few posts have been nothing but whinging, and noone needs to read that.
So with the new site coverage in mind, you can expect Blaugust posts about:
- My recent foray in Bullet Journaling (yep!)
- WoW Dragonflight – Alpha adventures (I have been super lucky to get Alpha access, of course I’m going to write about it!)
- Crafting stuff
- more IRL stuff, either just random stuff about me and/or what I’m up to, what I’m reading/watching etc.
Is there anything you would like me to do a post about? Any topic ideas would be welcomed. I don’t have 31 yet, so if there’s something you would like to ask me, I’ll do an answer as a post, or if there’s a topic you’d be interested on my opinion on, lemme know!
So that’s the plan! I have decided that August 1st is a bit of a fresh start for me; an opportunity to kick my butt into gear and actually be a grown up. I need to take better care of myself and the people around me, and this is part of that journey. I hope you’ll join me! 🙂
