Lessons Learned Week

The word "Blaugust" is underneath a red line. Below that is "2022" with two smaller red lines on each side of it. This is the logo for Blaugust 2022, created by Belghast.

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).

Staying Motivated Week

The word "Blaugust" is underneath a red line. Below it is "2022" which is in the middle of two parts of a different line. Some think it resembles the logo art for Stranger Things

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.

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.

What I Learned from Doing #Blaugust

This is my very last post for #Blaugust, a project the requires participants to write one blog, every day, through the month of August. It is my understanding that you could write about whatever you wanted to, but most people seem to be writing about video game topics.

I chose to challenge myself by writing about Diablo III for each and every post. To be honest, I wasn’t entirely certain that I would be able to complete this project on time. I’m a freelance writer, so I knew that I could write a blog every day. I often write two or more each day. The difficulty was to see if I could come up with enough things to say about Diablo III for an entire month’s worth of blogs.

I’ve learned quite a bit from my experience with #Blaugust, especially about how to write video game related blogs. So, for my last post for the project, I’m going to share what I learned from doing #Blaugust.

16 Things that Won’t Happen in Diablo III

A friend who I follow on Twitter mentioned the Portent’s Content Idea Generator. I’d never heard of it before, so I decided to give it a try. This blog is the result of the title it generated for me.

It was totally random that I ended up with a title with the number 16 in it. That works nicely with my Day 16 post for #Blaugust. Those of you who are also working your way through #Blaugust might want to give the generator a try. It’s better than being stuck for ideas.
