I Need to Catch-Up on All the Things

Blaugust Day 28

The release date for Heart of Thorns, the first expansion for Guild Wars 2, was announced today. While I’m excited, it reminded me how far behind I am on everything. Guild Wars 2 news, RuneScape news, podcasts, Blaugust posts, and the list goes on.

When I get behind on something and then finally get a chance to get caught up I want to pick up where I last left off and go through it in chronological order. And when you reach the point where you haven’t kept up with something for weeks or months getting caught-up seems quite daunting, so you put it off and starting becomes more and more difficult. This has also been a struggle I have had with Blaugust, I don’t want to read what you posted today until I have read what you wrote in your 27 previous posts. Why? I can’t quite put my finger on it, I guess it’s the same reason why I trudge through the archives of podcasts I enjoy or videos of youtubers I enjoy watching. I want to see the progress, the changes, and the overarching narrative. I don’t do this with everything but there is an awful lot of things where this applies.

I am going to have to come back to this topic in the future. I just needed to write something today. I am also going to try and forget that most people started blogging before Blaugust…think of all things I could read.

One thought on “I Need to Catch-Up on All the Things

  1. I have this problem with games in a series!

    They’re on some latest and greatest evolution which is like the fifth in a series, and I’m still thinking, “but but wait, I haven’t even finished the first game which came out back in 2002” and find it really difficult to go on to games 2 and 3, let alone 5.
