Participating in Blaugust

Years ago I took part in the Newbie Blogger Initiative where I made many blogging friends. This year I’m taking part in an event that sprang from the community event so long ago. Belghast, our gracious host for the coming month, combined Blaugust (an event to motivate bloggers to post every day) and the NBI in one: Blaugust Reborn. Mentors advise (newbie) bloggers about keeping your own blog, coming up with ideas and staying motivated. It’s a great way to expand your readership, meet other bloggers in a wide variety of topics and work on your blogging skills. I loved the community then and many are still present today. I can’t wait to read and get to know the new bloggers.

I signed up as a participant, since I’d feel wrong to be a mentor even though I’ve been blogging for years. Princess in a Castle hasn’t been active for the past years since I’ve been working on other projects, but that’s going to change. On my other site (Narratess) a post goes up every Friday, but blogging every day is something I haven’t done for a while. I want to blog more and getting back into that rhythm of writing a lot of posts is a great way to get started.

The topics for next month will be mostly focused on the 101 goals since I haven’t updated those since the beginning of the year and I have made progress. There are more inspiring TED Talks that I want to share and played more games. I’ll definitely write about those. I might talk about the interesting things I watched on Netflix. My brainstorm is nearly done, but some topics might be exchanged for topics the Blaugust community will tackle.

I hope to see you next month!

Bloggy XMAS Day 6: LAN Parties!

This post was written as part of the Bloggy XMAS event hosted by Syl. Every day other bloggers post their community centered blog as a countdown to Christmas. Check out the complete calendar for more awesomeness.

I started playing games when I was three. Still fooling around in DOS and later Windows 3.1. I played with my brother, but after a while we stopped playing together. He thought I cheated. After that I played mostly single player games by myself. Roller Coaster Tycoon, Settlers 3, Black & White. And just a bit after Black & White I started playing Diablo 2. That’s when my online adventure began.

I’ve heard and/or experienced all types of harassment online. As a 14 year old girl, it’s an eye opener. I heard things I shouldn’t be hearing about at that age. But that didn’t stop me from gaming. I liked it and no one could make me not like it. I liked it so much that when a class mate told me about his gaming weekend with a few friends (about 20) I wanted to take a look.

That was my first LAN party.

Entering the Initiative

I recently found out about and joined the Newbie Blogger Initiative. This blog goes way back to 2009, but I still feel I’m new to blogging. I’ve never been consistent with posting until two years ago. I wrote about the launches of both Diablo 3 and Guild Wars 2, but after that the posts became irregular again.

This year I really want to keep things up and post regularly. Joining a blogging community will probably help me do that. Not only has the NBI a rich archive of blogging advice, they also support each other. I hope to learn a lot from my fellow bloggers and make this blog thrive. In return, I will also share my experiences and knowledge with the community. But most importantly, I have to learn to get things done :)
