Today (or tomorrow) marks the halfway point of Blaugust. I never thought that I would be able to keep up with 31 days straight of blogging. As much as I enjoy writing, most days it just feels like life is too hectic and to be honest, most of the time I feel like people don’t really want to read about what I think. Opinions are like, well you know, and everybody has one. Still, I find it interesting to read the opinions of others, so I guess it shouldn’t come as a surprise that there is an audience out there.
The good thing about Blaugust is that it’s making me consciously think about doing something that I would otherwise just be like “eh, screw it”. If I can hang in there until the end, I think it’ll enable me to consciously attempt other things that I would normally procrastinate on. I’m also happy to have this outlet to talk about things that are going on in gaming. When you’re a 30-something professional with all the responsibilities that go along with that, you don’t always have people around that you can talk to about gaming. Twitter is great (and I love you Tweeps), but it can be difficult to actually communicate ideas in 140 characters or less, and the chance of miscommunication is much higher.
