Blaugust Wrap-Up

Blaugust Wrap-Up

Y’all, I can’t believe this day is actually here. This is it. The last “official” day of Blaugust. When this post goes up, I’ll have officially written a month’s worth of blog posts. There were a few days in the middle of the week where I seriously questioned whether or not this was a good idea. There were absolutely a few days where I considered giving up entirely because let’s face it. As a returning blogger, writing a blog post…

The End Approaches

The End Approaches

It’s really strange for me to think that Blaugust is coming to a close. I’m relieved, but a bit anxious about it at the same time. When you’ve been doing something like this every day for an entire month — and speaking of, I legitimately cannot believe it’s been almost a whole month and I feel like this is another point in the favor of time just being fake — the idea of suddenly not doing that same thing is…

From the Beginning…

From the Beginning…

I’ve been playing and livestreaming The Elder Scrolls Online consistently since 2018. Players who had been playing the game longer than I had were eagerly anticipating the release of the next expansion at the time, Summerset. I, on the other hand, was still exploring Morrowind. Since then, I’ve played through the majority of the content that ESO has to offer players. I’ve met and fallen in love with so many NPCs on my Vestige’s journey across Tamriel, saving it again…

Have You Ever: Gaming Edition

Have You Ever: Gaming Edition

When it came time for me to attempt to figure out a blog post for today, I legitimately came up empty. I have an assortment of ideas for future posts down the line, mind, but being that today is a weekend, I wanted to try to keep things as casual as possible. And then I remembered Chestnut from Gamer Girl Confessions posted this a couple of weeks ago. Playing a game of sorts felt like the perfect thing to post…

Musical Motivation

Musical Motivation

Whether it’s working up the motivation to start typing up a blog post or to do some farming in one of the games I play, listening to music has always managed to help me with a lot more than I ever really expected it to. The right background music can psych me up and keep me focused on whatever it is I’m doing. Even as I type this post up, I have one of my playlists specifically curated to help…

Imposter Syndrome and Me

Imposter Syndrome and Me

There are days in my life where I genuinely feel like a fraud. This is something I’ve struggled with for a while, especially on Twitch. I have a loyal community of regulars there. They have subscribed to me and gifted so many subs to my channel to people over the course of my time streaming. They have brought friends to the stream. Some of them have even acquired things for me in games because they’re total sweethearts. While I do…

Staying Afraid

Staying Afraid

As I sat down to start writing today’s Blaugust entry, I found it incredibly difficult to get the words together. See, this topic is something I struggle with a lot, whether it’s streaming or even just with this newly created blog. My entire life, there’s always been a little voice in the back of my head telling me that what I’m doing isn’t good enough. There are people out there who are infinitely more successful than me at the things…

Why I Don’t Like the Imperial City

Why I Don’t Like the Imperial City

This Thursday (August 26, 2021) marks the start of The Elder Scrolls Online‘s Year One Celebration. It’s an event that’s meant to encourage players to revisit zones and DLC content that was released in the first year of ESO‘s operation, specifically Wrothgar, Craglorn, and Imperial City. During this event, players can acquire an abundance of resources, style pages, and, of course, event tickets that can be exchanged for a variety of goods from our beloved Impresario. By itself, all of…

Get a Content Calendar

Get a Content Calendar

Before I ever started Blaugust 2021, before I ever started creating posts for this blog, one of the first blogging utility plugins I ever installed was a content calendar. Despite that being one of the first plugins I installed here, it might surprise you all to learn that I didn’t even really know what a content calendar was before 2020. I knew some creatives used calendars to schedule social media posts or when they were going to post videos if…

Blaugust 2021: An Update for Motivation Week

Blaugust 2021: An Update for Motivation Week

Y’all, it happened. It finally happened. The end of Blaugust is almost in sight and motivation is starting to deteriorate. I wasn’t sure that I’d ever actually get to this point, especially considering how well I had been doing for the first couple of weeks, but it doesn’t really feel like a good sign when even the idea of just sitting down and starting to write a blog post for the day makes you feel like you’d rather be doing…
