You loot a [barely readable diary]...

A blog (re)born

They say blogging's dead. I don't know who they are and I don't care much for their opinions.

I've been wanting to start blogging again for some time. I ran my last blog for several years before it fizzled out, but it felt wrong going back to it after such a long break. Then two things aligned that have spurred me into action:

  • Belghast announced Blaugust Reborn, a fantastic reboot of the blaugust blogging festival;
  • World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth will be launching right in the middle of that August blogging fiesta

The opportunity seemed too good to waste, so here I am. I'm writing this on a little custom-made blogging platform that I've cobbled together over the last few days. Part of the Blaugust challenge for me will be refining this software and adding in all the features I need to use; one at a time, just as I need them.

I'm going to keep the scope of this blog small; I first envisaged it as a Warcraft blog, and that'll likely still be the primary focus, but I'll also include the other MMO/RPG games that make up the majority of my gaming diet, plus some meta-commentary on the development of the blog platform.

You may have noticed there's no ability to add comments to posts yet, and I feel that'll probably be essential during Blaugust. So that's top of the list for now. Until then, I'm in the Blaugust Discord, and on Twitter both as @rumorsmatrix.
