Blaugust 2021 in the Rear View

One of the things I was hoping for with the delay in writing this year’s Blaugust wrap-up was that I might stumble upon some additional insight or understanding, some epiphany or pearl of wisdom I can impart — really? Just something to...

Time to Loot Journal: Blaugust 2021

Blaugust hasn’t quite come to a close, but the challenge component of it has. For those who either love to write like Bhagpuss or who appreciate looking back at a completed challenge in the rearview like I do, the ‘requirement’ (I...

The Shape of Motivation and Enjoyment

The featured image I chose for this post is from the EXO One Demo, in which the craft you control can shift in shape and function in service to the art of soaring above it all- skimming across clouds when you can but hardening into a ball with...

Staying Motivated – 2021

Starting a new endeavour isn’t always easy, sure. But I would think that keeping it going is often the much more difficult part. Certainly that can be the case with Blogging — and if that matches your experience, then welcome! This is...

Don’t Post in the Weekend – Part 2

If you missed it, in the first part of this post, I asserted that if you write something near and dear to your heart — something you really want to be seen and perhaps even trigger some discussion around — and then post it in the...

Don’t Post in the Weekend

Yesterday, I talked about the fact that you don’t really need to be a planner to be successful at blogging. Schedules? Totally optional. But… If I was going to make one caveat or amendment to that line of thinking it would be in regard...

Big, Baggy, Billowy, Blogger Pants

I’m doing something on theme! I am! Look! It’s on topic with the theme! :D Or at least, I’m going to bend it a little bit and look at it at just the right angle so that it fits. This week in Blaugust is ‘Getting to know...

Bouncing and Blogrolls

So here’s a bit of a twofer today. The first will be of great help if you’re already worried about how on earth you might find the subject matter for posts on an ongoing basis. Don’t get me wrong- it isn’t a silver bullet....

Time to Loot Journal: July 2021

This month I restarted my Final Fantasy XIV journey in earnest and discovered just how remarkably close I was to the turning point in the story. If I had just pushed even a little bit harder when I was last playing, I would’ve been through...

Blaugust 2021 is Coming!

Belghast has now officially announced the plans for Blaugust 2021. I’m excited. Blaugust (or Blapril, last year) is far and away my favourite Blogger event and one that I’d highly encourage everyone to take a look at and consider...

Time to Loot Journal: June 2021

Half the year is over already. Crazy. Meanwhile, at work we wrap-up one financial year and begin the kick-off activities for the next. Booooriiiiing. (Well no, it isn’t- but probably would be for you.) Around here, for the blog, I made some...

Content Diversification

So here’s something that’s been bouncing around my noggin for a little while now. Diversifying what I write about. Specifically: Books! What I think of the stuff I read. Possibly joining in group read-along events again. That kind of...

Time to Loot Journal: May 2021

Uh-oh. Time seems to have reasserted its control over the month. That grace period that seems to come at the opening of each year, where time flies by, is showing signs of being at an end. I’m not sure how it is for the rest of the world, but...

Time to Loot Journal: April 2021

You know, April felt like a pretty good month. No singular overriding reason- just a general sense of contentment, capped off with the discovery the other day that there are some pretty talented piano players out there. No really- it’s true....

Time to Loot Journal: March 2021

Another month has flown by. Before we know it, we’re going to be looking down the barrel of another year done. Yay Christmas! Although perhaps I am getting a little ahead of myself given the beginning of the year always seems to move faster...

Time to Loot Journal: February 2021

I spent a good portion of this month unwell, unfortunately. Strep throat straight into a bout of Bronchitis, so I spent a lot of time at home feeling decidedly sorry for myself. At the very least, doing better now. The cough will persist for a...

Time to Loot Journal: January 2021

This month, the WoW train slowed down but hasn’t quite yet rolled into station. The engines are cooled, with the pressure lowering. No more is there an insane drive to spend every moment available for gaming in WoW. But for all that- and...

Time to Loot Turns Two

I did it again. I missed the blogiversary by a few days. But I also did it again in the sense of making it through another year of consistent blogging. Certainly, I posted less this year (I’ll get to the stats later) but I still haven’t...
