Popular Games I Can’t Finish – It’s not you, it’s me

There are quite a few games in my various game service libraries that I've never finished. Even more that I own but haven't installed yet, but that's a whole other problem. Today I'm going to talk about games that I started to play but never finished. Many of these...

Backdating and Scheduling Posts in WordPress

I was going to leave a few gaps in my Blaugust posts because there will be days when I can't post. However, I don't HAVE to do that thanks to a lovely little feature in WordPress that allows you to set a specific publish date on your posts. Today is the 14th, I have...

Sad Abandoned Blogs – The 8bitkitchen Edition

As I've read several of the bios and about pages of other Blaugust participants, I've noticed that quite a few of us have dabbled in more than one blog. I thought I'd share one of my favorite, though sadly abandoned, past collaborative efforts.  A little blast...

If you've read my bio, then you know that I'm part of a medieval recreation group called the SCA and have been for years. So it will come as no big surprise that I like swords. As a fan of TTRPGs and reading fantasy novels, I'm also a fan of sorcery. A couple of...

I Got Nothin or Dialing it In

If you find yourself staring a blank page with no words to share or very little time to write (that is me this morning), it doesn't mean you can't get started and then edit your post to flesh it out more later. For some people this means saving it as a draft, but if...
