If you’re one of the unique and omnivorous individuals who also reads The Mystical Mesmer, a blog of mine which orbits the world of Guild Wars 2, you’re probably seeing double at this point. I assure you that I am not simply replicating my post from over yonder with regard to Blaugust for the sake of signal boost; the reason that I am posting about Blaugust here is because I also intend to take part in this event on Light Falls Gracefully by answering 31 of the writing prompts that are conveniently being provided by members of the community.
Yes, I’m insane. I think that much was established long ago.
Blaugust, a combination of the words “blog” and “August” (and now Vlaugust, I suppose), is a light-hearted community event created by Belghast last year which asks bloggers and vloggers alike to produce and publish some form of content every day. The rules are straightforward: publish a post at least ten sentences in length or a video at least five minutes in length every single day in August. Include a link to the 2015 Blaugust Initiative page and cross-post to the Blaugust nook on Anook. Include something like “Blaugust Day Number 14” in the title of the post to make it easier to keep track of which day you’re posting on. If you’re advertising your content on social media, be sure to use the #blaugust hashtag. That’s about it.
If you haven’t signed up and would like to subject yourself to the demands of talking about various topics daily, you may want to consider heading over to the sign-up thread in the forums and going for it. We have over 60 people taking part this year; you’ll have plenty of support and lots of people reading what you write. And if you’re so inclined, you can look forward to reading my responses to a myriad of gaming-related prompts starting tomorrow. See you then!
