A large, mostly grey oval shape, has a round and colorful letter B on the left hand side. Inside the oval, it says "Blaugchievement Gained! Reading the Manual"

I am participating in Blaugust2022, a fun event that lasts throughout the month of August. Those who participate typically end up posting a lot of content on their blogs (or vlogs) – which everyone gets to enjoy.

It is not too late to sign up and participate! We’ve got a really friendly, helpful group of people, many of whom do this every August. (More details here.)

I’m making an attempt to keep up with everything, and enjoying everyone’s creativity. There is something about having a deadline to hit that can push people to get back into regular blogging.

For example, today, I’m writing about Blaugust. There is something new added for 2022 – “Blaugchievements“. I’m using this blog post as a way to keep track of the Blaugchievements I complete this month. This is not my first attempt at Blaugust, which means I’ve already completed some of these by default. It’s like when you start playing a video game that doesn’t have achievements, and then the developers add some in – and you get “achievement spam” as the game counts the ones you earned.
