We’ve done it. The 31 days of Blaugust (someone should write a song about that), and now we are between 1-31+ posts richer because of it. Some of us are exhausted (I’m one of them), some of us are wired up and want more (are there?), and some are going on, business as usual. But today marks the official end of hell Blaugust and we can all pat ourselves on the back for getting through the month.
I’d love to post some stats and stuff about Blaugust and my own blog, but I haven’t been keeping track of it much and don’t have anything to compare it too, really. I’ve been more enjoying reading other posts, coming up with my own, and commenting/replying on other and my own blogs. That’s not to say people should not worry about their stats as we each have our own thing we do and stats can be important to us.
Some of the stuff I’ve learned from Blaugust was keeping a more solid schedule in posting (only had two lapses I’ve made makup posts for) and some capabilities that Blogger has, including changing the comment system to something more powerful. I have some more plans for my blog, like getting a blogroll up, creating an achievements page of all this blog has accomplished, and come out with some neat community features. As a web developer by trade, I’m sure I can put that to use.
But this isn’t a parting post, far from it; this is a new starting post to finally kick my butt in gear and continue posting more regularly. My plans will be to keep blogging, around 4 posts a week, make some more videos for Youtube, aiming for 3 a week to start with, and to finally sit down and start writing out my podcast story script and EQ comic script. This will be my September goal.
