Ditto the Monster looks at the world of family friendly online games from a Fabricated American perspective

So there’s this thing called #blaughust… I blame The Friendly Necromancer

I was reading the very excellent blog of ‘The Friendly Necromancer’ and he was talking about this challenge, ‘Blaughust‘, which challenges bloggers to post every day in August.  The first thing I thought was ‘Wow, is that a terrible name for a challenge.  I mean, who came up with that name?  How do you even pronounce that?’, but soon after that I thought – well, this might be a good idea, something cool for me to try, and it’s highly opportune timing, because I’ve got plans for updating Dittomonster.com

You see, I just got a new laptop – my trusty old Asus has been with me for over 5 years, and though we’ve been through a lot together, I felt it was time for an upgrade, to a brand new Asus laptop!  It’s a nice 2 in 1 running Windows 10 and a GeForce 940m, so it’s pretty sweet for gaming.  It can also handle something my old machine just couldn’t – live streaming game sessions!  That’s right, Ditto now has a Twitch.tv Channel and will start streaming games and things there!  I was playing around with it today and so far it’s pretty fun! I’m also going to try to start recording videos differently – instead of the ‘over the shoulder’ shot with the video camera I’ll try to record the videos with the ‘picture in picture’ style a lot of gamers use – my face on the webcam in a little corner window.   A number of people have said that some of my videos are harder to see because of the way I shoot them, so I’ll try this.  It should be easier to set up, too… though Carl the Camera-Bear might be upset that he’s out of a job.  Sorry Carl.

So can I pull this off – a good blog post every day, with real content and not just me going ‘la la la la la…’ Probably not, but I’m giving it a try!
