It is that time again. August is upon us, the month that historically brings the least news and sees the fewest game launches. It is hot out, the Euros are all on vacation, True Detective is wrapping up, and it just feels like it might be the right time to take a break from blogging. Who would even notice, right?
So let’s hold a blogging event!
Belghast over at Tales of the Aggronaut is going to try to push all willing to try and post every single day during the news and interest drought that is August.
There are, of course, rules. You can read them all here, but to summarize you have to make a minimum effort post on your blog every day this month, and then you have to link up your post over in the Blaugust forum on Anook.com.
Of course, here it is, the first day of August, and if you’re just reading about Blaugust now, you’re already late!
But don’t worry, you can catch up. Or, if you’re quick, you can still post today and not be behind at all.
I am not sure how I will fare this time around. Last year I ground through without much of a problem. This year though… well, it is still August, school is starting soon, work is busy, I have a summons for jury duty next week and a low number which ensures I’ll be spending time at the courthouse. We shall see.
Hopefully we’ll have some Blaugust group topics for people to dig into. Or, if you want another source of help, WordPress.com is having a Blogging 101 event this month as well, and will send you a topic to write about every weekday.
Anyway, look at all the people who have signed on for the event.
