July 2018 wasn’t only the hottest month in summer, but also the busiest in blogging.
Keeping up with all the daily news despite the high temperatures was difficult enough, but getting all the overviews ready made me sweat even more:
Still, it was all worth it, considering that I reached the 200+ followers milestone.
Despite trying to cover more media, it was only one book bundle that made it to these pages:
There was only one article about free games, but as this included one freebie per day, this was still a good quota:
Gaming news prevailed, mostly with indie titles, but a very surprising (and free) return of a classic (fan) adventure, too:
GOG also had some pretty cool releases of classic games and newer ones:
It was obvious that July’s blogging very much focused on adventure games, as these reviews again proved that it’s possible to publish 8 per month, even if it meant a lot of writing/gaming work:
Inherit the Earth: Quest for the Orb
The Legend of Kyrandia: Book One – Fables and Fiends
The Legend of Kyrandia: Book Two – Hand of Fate
The Legend of Kyrandia: Book Three – Malcolm’s Revenge
Sam & Max: Hit the Road
Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders
Finally there were great gaming events, past and present, that needed to be covered, which obviously meant even more work, but also more fun:
Past gaming events: “Pokémon GO Safari Zone 2018 in Dortmund, Germany”
Upcoming gaming events: devcom 2018 in Cologne, Germany
Upcoming gaming events: gamescom 2018 in Cologne, Germany
Upcoming gaming/movies/TV events: SoundTrack_Cologne 15 in Cologne, Germany
Trying to find suitable topics for my articles has never been a problem, only how to find the time, so compromises always have to be made in selecting them, or writing in advance, and even publishing more than one per day. July proved that if one can succeed in time management, one can succeed in anything. Just keep on writing, something that has been true for this month and hopefully for the next months as well. We’ll see… and write… and play… and read… in that order or not.
