The logo of Blaugust 2022 is in a font style and color that seems to remind people of the Stranger Things show. The word "Blaugust" sits under a red line. The number 2022 sits below "Blaugust" and in between two of the same type of line. The overall colors are shades of red.

We are now in the second week of Blaugust 2022. There is still plenty of time to sign up, post stuff on your blog, and join the Blaugust Discord. We’ve got a large group of bloggers this year, including some brand new people.

The main idea of Blaugust is to keep your blog (or vlog) going. Most, if not all of us, share links to our Blaugust posts on the Discord. It provides an easy way for the group to access your content and for you to find interesting blogs to read/watch.

Personally, I enjoy trying to write 31 posts on my blog during Blaugust. I’ve done it many times before, and I like to challenge myself to do it again. That said, you are not required to do Blaugust the way I prefer to. Any amount of blogging counts, as the goal is to encourage writers to start a blog of their own – or to revive a blog that was left by the wayside.

What I’m trying to say is that I’ve always found the Blaugust group to be incredibly welcoming to new people. You aren’t competing against anyone other than yourself, and you get to choose how much (or how little) you want to participate. There is something about having a group of fellow bloggers/vloggers who get together every August and share links to their work that inspires me to keep posting content.

Technically, the “Welcome to Blaugust” post was ideally to have been written last week (the first week of Blaugust). Unfortunately for me, the first week of a new month is really busy because I work as a freelance writer. One great thing about Blaugust is that nobody is going to look down upon you if you end up doing a themed post a bit later than intended.

Blaugust is a fun event where new bloggers can jump into the community. You will probably find blogs that attract your attention – and some that focus on topics that aren’t your thing at all. I find it fun to check out all the post/videos, but that is not required.
