Blaugust 31- Lesson: A Look Back at 31 Posts

I’m a stubborn individual. When I set a goal for myself such as – Write 31 Blog Posts in a Month – I’m going to push through to see it done.

So I did. But boy am I ready for a break!

A break I shall not take, however. I already have a list of posts I want to tackle for my main blog this week. As for this blog, I’m going to consider the direction I’m going to move in now that Blaugust is over. I really want to work up more immersive writing, but I haven’t figured out how I’m going to do that yet.

As a recap for Blaugust, I feel like I’ve written most of the posts that I set out to do. I didn’t get to all of the topics I listed on the first day as possibilities – and this is fine.

Weekend writing was certainly the hardest for me. I just have so much going on that I normally purposely take a break from blogging on weekends for a reason. Now I understand why I need that break and that weekend writing continues to be a challenge.

Even when I tried to get a jump on writing before the weekend, it usually didn’t happen. Often, though, I did pre-write the post for Sunday on Saturday night. Not sure how that came about, but it was nice to have a Sunday to focus on my webcomic work and gaming.

List of Posts

So I will close this month with a list of all the posts from this year’s Blaugust. Hopefully something I wrote this year was helpful to you!

  1. Well done on finishing Blaugust! I’m really impressed, keeping up with something like this for an entire month is tough! I’ve done it with Inktober and Camp NaNoWriMo a couple of times. It’s fun but tough.

    Also, may I ask what you are currently working with/as? You seem to have an insane amount of creative work going on, with two blogs, Twitter, one (two?) webcomic(s), and so on. Super-cool!

    1. I’ve also completed things such as Inktober and NaNoWriMo (though I haven’t done one of those for a long time). Blaugust isn’t quite as intense as those are.

      I’m a technical writer IRL, so writing hard and fast comes naturally to me! I know it looks like I have a lot of projects going, but it’s not as much as it might seem.

      My main blog is pretty casually updated when I’m inspired (it only saw 4-5 posts during Blaugust). This blog may seem like it’s putting out a lot of stuff, but a lot of it is older content that I’m reposting (the story posts) and bringing up to date after having been on Tumblr from years ago. So I’m not actually writing ALL of what I’m posting, it’s just repurposing old content! XD

      I have a third creative blog out there but I haven’t updated that in a while. I keep wanting to do something more with it. Maybe one day!

      I only have one current webcomic and that updates one page a week – it used to be three times a week, but I had to cut back on that. I also take breaks from that when I need to, though I try to be as consistent as I can.

      Blaugust was actually the first time in a while that I’ve done a *new* post a day for any of my projects.

      1. Aaah, I see, I see, it makes sense now, haha! Repurposing old content and so on. Really smart, to be honest, no need to re-invent the wheel every time. And honestly? It’s kinda nice to hear someone say that they -don’t- update their blog 3 times per week, cause man, that can give me anxiety like nothing else, haha! The same goes with posting art online and so on.

        What’s your third blog about? I’m curious now! I might’ve visited it, cause I surfed around your main blog a couple of weeks ago, but… I could be wrong, because I’m practically senile, haha!

        I’d love to start posting comics online again. I’ve only done two smaller projects, but I have these long, looong stories in my head… But the time commitment of webcomics (or comics overall) sort of scare me, I’ve recently come to realize. “What if I start hating it in a year?” Kind of decided to ignore that though, and just go for it.
