Participating in Blaugust 2022 with Hesitance

Today, August 1st, kicks off “Blaugust 2022” a monthly blog challenge hosted by some mainstays in the gaming blog scene. The goal is simple: Post at least once a day throughout August, and victory is yours.

Oh, but participants aren’t competing amongst themselves or for cash prizes. Instead, Blaugust tests the individual’s blogging endurance, with victory serving to validate one’s discipline — and in turn, foster the blogging community.

Actually, there are prizes: If last year is any indication, victors can walk away with one of several shiny Blaugust “medal” icons depending on how much they posted. I certainly wouldn’t mind having one in my sidebar.

I’m a Blaugust entrant for the first time this year — albeit reluctantly. Unfortunately, my health issues have worsened over the last week, which may reduce my blogging frequency. As I type this, I’m experiencing a gnarly wave of nausea — and given my history, more’s to come. Surf’s up, dude!!

Still, I’ve been wanting to get back into blogging since taking a several-month hiatus. I even tweaked this blog’s design in anticipation (let me know what you think of the changes!). I’m hoping Blaugust can get me writing again, all while drawing attention to a fantastic community of dedicated bloggers.

Happy blogging, everyone!

    The good news is you’ve already qualified for your very first #Blaugust2022 badge to bling out your sidebar. We’re glad to have you among us, for as much or as little as you can do this year.
