|get it, 'cos it's a watch|
But at this point, easy seems like such an overestimate of my potentials. I'll say it now that blogging is difficult but lovable, and in that it's hard to get good content out in a timely fashion as Blaugust demands. It may take me hours to type up a post, or in some cases just half an hour (like this one as I try to catch up). The gaming itself takes time, too, and while I love it, I keep finding that real life just gets in the way of a nice sit-down-and-game more often than not.
Blaugust, however, is teaching me new things. I'm used to having a few days to get a single post out, enough to be able to collect myself and type up a review, or play a longer game and do some analysis. That being said, the challenge of writing a post every day has taught me the hard way that not only do I need to ultra-optimize my time, but I need to be even more resourceful than I thought I was before. Instead of just restricting myself to reviews and news-related content, I've been able to write more about myself and my opinions on things (even though it still feels very scary to do so). I've written about my costumes, about writing, about my history of gaming - essentially, so much more than I thought I could will myself to write about.
What about when September hits? I don't think I'll maintain posting daily, but I'll try to keep it that way as much as possible. Maybe every other day? I'll see how it goes, but I've learned now that I don't need these silly, unnecessary restrictions on myself. What if I really do want to post about character development in an MMO that others have mastered? Sure, why not. What if it's a news release that most people know about already? If I've got something to say, I think I'll go ahead and say it, now. Timeliness is secondary to quality, but a post never published is almost never worth deliberating on, anyways.
