Intpipomo 2018

Intpipomo is one of those things I never seem to know how to get in on and it frustrates me as I only ever know about it after the fact.  Not this year my wonderful readers!!  No, this year I am only  few days behind and I have even registered thanks to seeing this post on twitter which lead me to Gamer Girl Confessions who is running it this year.

I have always appreciated the writing event and whilst it isn’t really my thing, taking 50 pictures over a month is certainly something I can handle.

So what are the rules:

  • Take the icon (original size 500×500) and use it on your site! (If you want, it’s not required!)
  • Link back to the original post so folks know where to go and what to do.
  • Aim to post fifty (50) images of your own creation/taking throughout the month of November.
    • There is no strict posting schedule or theme to adhere to, but feel free to bounce ideas off of fellow participants!
    • Feel free to post these images as a once-a-week batch, or throughout the week in small doses.
  • Use the #IntPiPoMo hastag when you share your blog posts via social media.

That is it. Post 50 pictures that I have taken and they can be of anything. I am adding an extra challenge condition of them being RL photographs to help me get back into my photography. I have needed a boost of motiviation and this will be it.

Let me know if you are doing it as well!!! I am so freaking excited that I remembered this year, I am off to go and my camera and find something to photograph.

Shared Topic : Making our own hardmodes.

Another week, another shared topic 🙂  This weekStringtheory of  Martha.net asks

I’ve seen a lot of challenges making the rounds lately, from the more traditional ‘you die, you’re out’ to the more complex ‘no spending money on anything’. Leveling only through crafting looks fun, leveling without any gear looks impossible, and making a bazillion gold on the auction house is something I really need to try someday. *ponders*

Anywho, why do you think these sorts of bring-your-own-hardmode are becoming more popular? Is it because the normal game as gotten too easy? Or repetitive? Or that it’s not challenging in the right sort of ways? Could Blizzard incorporate any of these methods of madness into the game itself or it there an inherent appeal to ‘house rules’ versions of the game?

Thinky thoughts, I am thinking them… *solemn nod*

Oh, and if you are participating in (or have already won) any of these events say so! Link ’em so the rest of us can cheer you on! :D

This post got long and rambly, but I enjoyed writing it 🙂
