Are you ready… for Blaugust?
Am I ready for Blaugust?
What the hell is Blaugust?
Blaugust is a word I made up, that someone else probably made up before I did (I’m not doing research on this today), that indicates an intention to blog every day in the month of August! The idea is pulled mainly from youtube vlog challenges I’ve seen (Vlogtober and Vlogmas). And the idea is to get myself back into old writing habits that just dropped away.
If you follow me you may have already realized that I haven’t blogged much in a long time. I don’t want this post to get too long, so I’m not going to to into the reasons at the moment. Maybe that will be the topic of one of next month’s posts… I haven’t done any other writing either. I haven’t done much of anything beyond what’s absolutely necessary (and a lot of Netflix binges).
The disappearance of writing in my life, in a way, happened all at once. Even though it seemed like a slow decline in certain ways, I haven’t had the passion I used to for quite a long time. Some people will be convinced that it’s due to depression, but there’s much more to it than that.
The posts during Blaugust can be about anything at all. Some will be long, some will be short. Most of them will probably not undergo much editing–mainly because the extra step is likely to be used as an excuse not to post, and I want to do my best to see this through. I’ll try not to look at page views and stats, but I am hoping for some comments that aren’t just spam. And topic suggestions are welcome.
Welcome back to this neglected writing life.
