Another year, another Blaugust. I like that Belghast decided to take a more relaxed—more chill, in his own words—approach to the contest this year. Last year I felt a little bit of stress when I missed a day or two or three. I don't have room in my life for that stress anymore, so a laid-back atmosphere makes me happier.
So this year's theme is scheduling, I guess. "Post on a schedule, that's all that matters. And maybe not even that. Just blog and have fun." I'm all for that. Here's my schedule:
Mondays: Beginning of the work week means it's time to talk about serious things. Career, love, life, etc. Need advice? I'm not authorized to give it, but I'll do it anyway if you want. (Spoiler warning: Next Monday will be about tech writing to answer questions from my readers.)
Wednesdays: Usually when I feel the most creative. Wednesday blogs will be about game design or writing or art or anything else I do that's creative.
Fridays: End of the week, and time for self-reflection. On these days I will tell stories from my life, or some truths about hidden parts of myself.
Weekends: No guarantee I post on the weekends, but when I do they'll be free form. Possibly updates on my projects, maybe some Q&A, maybe something entirely different.
What I want to make sure you all realize is that these themes are not set in stone. I'll do my best to stick to them, but what's important is posting things, not the things I post.
So yeah, cheers and I'll see you all on Wednesday.
