Blaugust 2016 Initiative Will Be a “Super-Relaxed Edition”

The annual blogging tradition of Blaugust 2016 will be a so-called “super-relaxed edition” according to the event’s coordinator.


Belghast from the gaming blog Tales of the Aggronaut has once more kicked off the annual blogging initiative, though this year’s challenge will feature a twist. Citing the idea that a daily blog challenge felt more like a gauntlet that caused writers to take months off after the fact, Blaugust this year will allow people to write in their blogs on their own schedule, be it daily, once a week or otherwise. The only requirement for official participation is to add your name to a sign-up sheet.

Further details about the event can be read in the announcement post.

Our Thoughts

Speaking for myself as Wolfy, I have Belghast to thank for truly lighting a fire under me to follow writing as a career and a passion, even if my own blog hasn’t been given a lot of love recently. All of us at MMOGames adore the Blaugust initiative in whatever form it takes, and we’re looking forward to seeing what the participants will be bringing this year, both old and new.
