This summer is — you have no idea — crazy busy for me. More so than any other summer I’ve experienced up to this point in my life, and it’s probably not going to slow down for a while. So while I have no time or energy to devote to running any sort of community event, it’s very gratifying to see Belghast crank up Blaugust once more.
This “festival of blogging” that starts up in August is a way to encourage, promote, and mentor gaming and MMO bloggers — especially new or lapsed ones that need some encouragement in getting into the groove of (semi-)regular blogging.
According to Belghast, “What I propose is a month of mildly structured posting and developing a strong mentorship community among those of us who are still out there doing it on a regular basis. Lets help grow that next generation of bloggers and help them get started in a journey that honestly has meant more to me than I can adequately put into words.”
There are awards to be gained and mentorship to be had. I am signing up as a mentor to offer advice and help, such as I have to give. I do want to spend the month of August doing regular features on all of the participants of Blaugust, both new and veteran. It’s good to be reminded that we don’t blog in a vacuum. He’s even scheduled weekly themes for us to talk about, so I guess I need to pay attention to that or else suffer his notorious (non-existent) ire.
If you’re interested in starting up a gaming blog, want to dust your old one off, or need a push by the community, then head on over to read the full details and sign up for the Blaugust Reborn adventure. And for those of you who are experienced bloggers, why not agree to be a mentor?
