By the time I’ve reached this point on Blaugust – really, any Blaugust I’ve participated in – I feel mixed emotions. Part of me is happy that I’ve managed to keep up with blogging this month. The other part of me is tired and just wants to be done. I’ve felt the same way during NaPodPoMo (where you post a daily podcast through November).Continue Reading “Lessons Learned Week”
I don’t know about you, but I’m losing my motivation for Blaugust. That doesn’t mean I’m quitting – just that I’m struggling to find the energy to post something every day. I’ve had the same thing happen every time I participated in NaPodPoMo, where the goal is to post one episode of your podcast every day in November.Continue Reading “Staying Motivated Week”
One of the themes of Blaugust 2022 (and probably previous Blaugusts) is to write a post where you introduce yourself. I don’t think I’ve done this before because my blog has an About Page. However, since we have some people who are brand new to Blaugust this year, I decided to write an introduction of myself.Continue Reading “An Introduction”
I wrote this piece of writing on July 26, 2014, on a website that no longer exists. The original piece turned out to be a “first draft”, which I later decided to craft into a poem. It was very hot and humid Summer day, and I was wishing for rain.
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.Continue Reading “Blaugchievements!”

While there are many wonderful reasons for fans to favor the protagonists, I find that the antagonists can also be very complex and interesting.Continue Reading “My Favorite Star Wars Antagonists”
I am participating in Promptapalooza, this year’s version of Blaugust. Each blogger who is participating is assigned a prompt to write about.
SDWeasel described it as “a blogging relay race” in a blog post focused on the prompt: “What’s something you’ve lost along the way that you would love to have back?” You can find that blog post on Unidentified Signal Source.Continue Reading “Tell Us 5 Facts About Yourself”
Last year, I joined in on the fun and became part of Blaugust Reborn. It was a wonderful opportunity to hang out in Discord with the community of bloggers who had also decided to take on this challenge.
This year, I am taking part in Blaugust 2019. This “festival of blogging” is encouraging me to find the time to post content on my own blog on a regular basis. My goal is to post something every day this month.
I read “A Festival of Blogging” on Episode 051 of Words of Jen.Continue Reading “A Festival of Blogging”
In August, I joined a group of bloggers who were participating in a project called Blaugust Reborn. Many (but not all of) their blogs were focused on video games.Continue Reading “What I Learned from Blogging Every Day”
