#Blaugust2019- Warcraft Tattoos

Can you tell I am scraping for topic ideas now…OMG this is so darn hard. A post every day! But whilst I was trolling twitter for other Blaugust writers to steal writing prompts from, I found this and had to stop and appreciate the awesomeness. Here is Algalon from @Warcraft Tattoo after my session #1. …

#Blaugust2019 – Classic

I won’t be playing Classic, in fact I haven’t even installed it. I played on the beta weekend a few months ago and whilst I was all nostalgic for the game, it was enough of a taste to remind of why I don’t need to go back there. This tweet reinforced that in my mind. …

#Blaugust2019 – Why do I actually blog?

This is a question I have had running through my brain the last few weeks quite a lot. The answer is I am not sure, I just enjoy writing posts and like to know people are reading them. I think it shows insight to how I view games and what excites or angers me in …

#Blaugust2019 -Backlogs?

One of the things I have stumbled across since starting this challenge when reading other blogs is this idea of a backlog. Of games. This blew my mind hole so far open I am not sure I will ever be able to close it again. I am such a WoW addict, I had never considered …

#Blaugust2019 – The Queen’s Court of mischief

The guild actually killed the Court last week, but I was not online for it as I was at home, playing (and losing) Harry Potter board games with friends. So I was pretty excited when our next raid night we started a fresh heroic run and managed to get all the way to the Court …

#Blaugust2019 – IRL Collecting

What do I collect? I can’t collect real life mounts or pets (although that is a tempting idea) I do have a thing with collecting Pinny Arcade pins. I am always open for donations to either keep or swap with people at our yearly pilgrimage to PAX. PAX for those unfamiliar is a gaming expo …

#Blaugust2019 – Creator appreciation – Music

Music is one of those things I want in my life playing all the time. Sadly I need to be talking to people and watching other things, so I can’t have music going as much as I would like. It is a huge part of my emotional rollercoaster balancing as well. It can put me …

#Blaugust 2019 – Creator appreciation – INTPIPOMO 2018 RESULTS

You might remember, towards the end of last year I did INTPIPOMO….well I did some of it. Not all of it. I only managed to post a few photos, but that was enough apparently to score me a little random win. Who would have thought 🙂 You can read the full post here but I …

#Blaugust2019 – Creator appreciation – Comics

I thought I would post about some of my favourite comics which i read and follow on social media so I know when new ones have come out. Belzebubs – is without a doubt my current favourite. We haven’t had an actual comic for a little bit but I absolutely love this comic of a …

#Blaugust2019 – Creator appreciation – Youtube

Hubby and I watch more youtube than streaming and TV combined these days. I am not sure how it happened but we just enjoyed watching content people have created. We even toyed with the idea of creating a youtube channel ourselves but neither of us could really spare the time to edit, create and come …

#Blaugust2019 – Creator appreciation – Artists

The writing ideas for this week are about appreciating people who create content. Things I like watching, buying, seeing and being involved in. I thought it might be cool for me to break down into categories but who knows. I may be out of steam by the end of a few posts. Today I am …

#Blaugust 2019 – Fright Night

We had a night out with some friends to see “A midnight Visit, which is a warehouse converted into various rooms with different themes and actors doing Edgar Allan Poe scenes. Some rooms were creepy as hell and others were a little meh. I felt a little creeped out in the streamer room and i …

#Blaugust 2019 – Couldn’t be done, they said.

I didn’t want to raid this week given the current state of my brain, but I was online fiddling with my toon at raid time changing gear, getting chants (Thanks Oui) and pottering around. Anyway whilst sitting in discord I got outed by a few people about why I wasn’t in the raid, so I …

#Blaugust2019 – Mental health

This is a trigger warning for the below on multiple fronts. Proceed with caution. This was a post I was deciding if I should post or not and if it has gone live, I obviously decided against my better judgement to let it go public. It is one of those stigma breaking things I need …

#Blaugust2019 – VR and PS4

I tried “Beat Sabre” for the first time months ago at Sian and Michael’s place. Since then it has been a game I could not get out of my head and one I wanted to buy. Hubby and I even spent weeks pouring over all the VR options and prices to determine the best possible …

#Blaugust2019 – DnD

Funny story, years ago I was dating a guy who roleplayed. Shadowrun I believe was the name of the game. I used to give him so much crap about it because I just thought it was weird. Fast forward a few years after my love of Guild Wars had blossomed into WoW addiction and I …

#Blaugust2019 – Dragons?

People may not know me well enough to know my slight obsession with dragons. When I mean slight I mean, I own a lot of dragon items in my house, my character names bar a couple all start with Dragon, I love all lore relating to dragons. I can’t remember when I was first made …

#Blaugust2019 – Getting to know me week

Another day, another post for Blaugust, this week is supposed to be about getting to know me. I have no idea what people would be interested in knowing about me. Part of me wants to stick to the same stuff my readers would know and another part of me wants to talk about things that …

#Blaugust2019 – Times they are a changing

So when this post goes live, our friends Ben and Oui, may have started their journey to move from Sydney to Melbourne. They were planning on leaving “early” to start their drive but I have no idea if they will actually manage it. We met them at PAX 2014 for the first time through Michael …

#Blaugust2019 – working with ladies

I still dispute calling her a lady when she looks like a monster and throws coral at us but she should be respected for her choices. We actually cleared all three Heroic bosses without issue again tonight. I wouldn’t say they are on farm but we are doing really well. People are still taking a …
