I’m Back and Upcoming Posts!

Happy Saturday Gamers and Friends and Welcome Back to GamersUnitedGG! Well, it has been a while since I have blogged or uploaded any video game posts. Life has just been busy, but I’m finally balanced enough to get back to blogging a few times a week ( by a few I mean probably 2 times a week for now). This is going to be a wrap up on what’s been keeping me so busy lately and an intro into the new format and upcoming posts I have planned.

 

Life: So I started dropping off blogging last year around November when NaNoWriMo hit because I was participating in the challenge. NaNoWriMo takes place every November and writers are encouraged to write a novel (50,000 words or more) in a month. A tall task, but I was more prepared this year than I was last year with a proper outline. The story was the continuation of the book I wrote last year (which I will publish this year).  The Destiny Series follows fictitious rulers in 16th Century Europe and the inaugural book A Diary of Destiny takes place between the sacred pages of a nobleman’s bastard grandson, appointed squire to the King of Tamlonia. Gabriel recounts the events taking place as the King’s Daughter, Princess Ariana has become of age to marry. I’ve had a great time writing this series and look to continue it with book 3.

 

Work: Work has been busy lately so I’m picking up overtime to save up for my trip in April. Along with my normal job assisting Travel Agents, I’ve started selling Scentsy on the side as well. Scentsy is wax melts, warmers and different product fragrances. This is my 3rd month and it’s a really fun way to make that extra money. I always have my Scentsy Kit with me with testers, catalogs and my beautiful Vega the Unicorn Scentsy Buddy that smells amazing. Never heard of Scentsy, ask me questions!    www.WhiffablesByLuna.com

Upcoming Posts:

  • I am participating in the Tracking Shells collaboration over on Normal Happenings so my post about my fondest Mario Kart memories will be released soon.
  • I’ve been reading the Harry Potter books (for the 1st time) and I have a post or 2 I want to write. The first will be: Which Hogwarts House Should They Really Be In?  I’m really excited about this post, should be completed next week
  • Even though I haven’t been blogging, I have been playing video games way more than last year. I have my first impressions of Lego Harry Potter, I still have a Red Dead Redemption 2 post and new content with the Nintendo Switch.
  • Bookclub: My co-workers and I have started a bookclub in January and I plan to write about the 3 books we have already read.
  • Question of the Month: Kim and Later Levels hosts the gaming questions of the month. I haven’t participated in a few months but I plan on catching up and answering each question since January (because they seem to be connected). I encourage you to also join in on the fun and meet new bloggers by visiting http://www.LaterLevels.com
  • Captain Marvel Movie Review
  • Game of Thrones Countdown

 

Some exciting posts coming up soon and I’m happy to have the time to balance blogging and life again. What have you been up to? Playing any new games? Watching any new shows? Let’s talk!

December Update & Upcoming Posts!

Happy Friday Gamers!

Happy Holidays! GamersUnitedGG has been offline due to NaNoWriMo that took place during the month of November. Now that I’m finish with that writing challenge and after a bit of a break, it’s time to get back into the swing of things. Next Week we will kick off a few posts and during the month I will post plenty of content. Over October and November I was able to acquire and play a few games like Black Ops 4, Red Dead Redemption 2 and Lego Harry Potter. There will be some first impressions posts on these games and possibly some tips and tricks. Let’s get into the schedule for next week and the remainder of the month.

Next Week:

  • Gamers House Season 1 Finale!  – Remember this little event I hosted in October. Well we are finally going to find out who won! Catch up on the last episode here!
  • Red Dead Redemption 2 First Impressions – I’ve logged the majority of my Thanksgiving time off on this game and am very excited to talk about it!
  • Charming and Open Collaboration with Adventure Rules! – It’s my turn to ask and answer the question that Ian at Adventure Rules has set forth.

 

This Month:

  • Lego Harry Potter First Impressions
  • Black Ops 4 Favorites
  • My Game of the Year Awards
  • Countdown to 2019 Posts

Those are some of my plans for this month. What will you be up to? Are you planning any holiday or end of the year posts?

Update, Happy April and Thank You!

Happy Easter Novas, Players and Friends! March has passed us by and now we are entering my favorite month (can you guess why?). At the end of this month I will be celebrating my birthday and I’m super happy and blessed to have made it this far in life. Today’s post will be a brief update and announcement on what will be happening in April!

Firstly, THANK YOU for 600+ Followers!

Thank you.

I know we hit this goal a while a go in March, but as life throws you a mess of things, you tend to start something and completely forget to post it. I dropped the ball but I am eternally grateful. So why has my life been extraordinarily busy lately? Probably my resolution to get out more and experience different things. I’ve had myweekend booked since my trip in February with wonky activities like “Curling” rofl or this weekend’s “Renaissance Faire.” I’ve also completed my first editing pass in my novel. It’s super exciting to have made it this far and hopefully I can have the book published. It’s been exciting but I miss having a consistent blogging schedule so I’m going to make one for 3 posts a week right now. Let’s quickly recap our stats for March!

March was our lowest month to date but I’m still proud of the work that was accomplished.

February Replay!

Happy March everyone! February is the shortest month of the year so I shouldn’t be too surprised that it’s over, but I am! Where has the time gone lol. Let’s recap our goals and stats for February and set some more goals for March!

Let’s Start With February’s Stats:

 

  • We slowed down a bit and only posted 12 blog posts
  • We had 861 Views
  • We had 516 Visitors
  • We had 246 Likes

 

Not a bad month at all. We had a solid month and I look to build upon that in March. Now on to our goals for February!

 

  • Finish Reading Royal Pains and Review It
  • Finish Reading the Darth Vader Comic and Review it
  • Write and Post Black History and Gaming Post
  • Purchase Kingdom Come RPG
  • Post at least 3 times a week to the blog
  • Upload at least 2 YouTube Videos a week

 

Yikes! I didn’t finish moist of these. February was a crazy busy month for me in my personal life that I didn’t blog as much as I intended haha.

 

  1. I did Finish Royal Pains and I’m working on the review (should be up next week!)
  2. I have not started Darth Vader but I plan on reading it next week.
  3. I did write the Black History and Gaming post but I posted it March 1st lol
  4. I still haven’t purchased Kingdom Come because I haven’t been home to play any games lately .
  5. I didn’t post at least 3 times a week. I think I maybe posted at least twice a week.
  6. I did not upload 2 YouTube videos each week because I want to work out my editing first. In March I should have better quality videos thanks to suggestions from Aluna and others.

Now for my March Goals:

  • Write the Royal Pains Book Review
  • Write the Darth Vadar Comic Review
  • Read Fables Volume 1
  • Buy and Review at least 2 games
  • Complete Parts 2 and 3 of the Evolution of Black Characters
  • Set Up April’s Blogging Competition
  • Record and Edit at least 5 YouTube Videos
  • The Netflix Series of The Week Posts

 

Those are my March goals, what are yours? Since I took a bit of a break in February I want to come back with full steam in March.  Are you looking forward to any video game releases? Drakulus’s Blog Post Hit or Miss reminded me of a few games that will be releasing this month that I have completely forgot about. You can read his post by clicking here! Have a great March!

November Recap & December Goals!

Happy Sunday Players! November was a great month for me in a personal sense, but let’s see what has happened on the blog!

Surprisingly, we published 24 posts in the month of November! I was participating in the NaNoWriMo challenge all month, so I was not as active as I have been due to the challenge. Yet somehow between myself and our contributors we still had a decent number of posts!

We have 1064 Views, 668 visitors and 316 likes!

November Goals

  • Complete NaNoWriMo – Since we are in the month of November, I have been working on the NaNoWriMo challenge and my personal goal is to complete it!
  • 1 Steam Game Review  I have a few steam games that I have yet to play so I look to play them and write up a review this month (Thank you Thero159 for Offworld Trading Company and Amello!).
  • Post at least 3 times per week – The blog activity may not be as frequent as previous months because I’m focusing on NaNoWriMo, but I will try to have at least 3 posts per week for the month of November.

Ach2

The only achievement that we earned last month was the one for Completing NaNoWriMo! The novel is about 51,000 words (I’ve been editing it) and it is a Young Adult, period drama series.

December Goals:

 

  • Complete a Steam Game Review!
  • Set up the GamesUnitedGG YouTube Channel!
  • Launch a community Guest Blog Challenge!
  • Set up the GamersUnitedGG Podcast

Updates!

Happy Friday Players and Novas!  I hope everything is going well! Today’s post will be a short update on what’s going on with myself and the blog! It’s the Burger of The Day post, if you will lol.

Vacation: Firstly, I’m on vacation lol. I’m currently typing to your from my friends living room (because she’s still asleep) in Illinois. Now I’m a Floridian so being in Illinois when it’s pretty cold to me is crazy. But hey, I promised her that I would visit to go to Six Flags and Fright Night with her (doing that tomorrow). I’m a little skeptical because I am used to the high end Halloween Horror Nights and Howl O Scream events, but I’m sure I’ll have fun either way (If I don’t freeze to death lol).

Patreon: I know I mentioned starting a Patreon account in the Bloggers Thoughts: From Players to Professionals post last week. Well that dream is a reality now. The Patreon Page is live and you can help support the blog if you wanted by clicking here. Also, if you have any ideas for the page I’m happy to hear them!

Upgrades: Does the site look different to you? We received our first sponsored post a few days ago. With the earnings, I upgraded the blog to Premium and now we have access to better themes. It’s a work in progress but I’m upgrading the look and feel of the site (it looks wayyyy better on mobile now). How does the new theme look?

NaNoWriMo – The outline is complete for my story that I’m going to be working on during National November Writer’s Month (NaNoWriMo) and I’m debating on posting snippets of the story here during the month of November. Let me know if that would be a good idea. I’m writing the story of a journal from medievel times, following the life of a royal court and a Princess. The journal’s going to be written from different perspectives as it winds up in a few different character’s possession.

Upcoming Posts: This coming week we will have posts coming out that I have been working hard on.

Happy Sunday Novas! That’s right, from the poll released in the 100 Followers Thank You Post, the majority of you voted to be called Novas! A Nova is “a star showing a sudden large increase in brightness and then slowly returning to its original state over a few months” …. Interestingly enough Nova is also the name of one of my characters in the Fantasy Story that I was telling you about! So it’s official, I’m Luna and you’re all Novas :D.

Anyways, here’s the weekly update on the posts coming up this week. Because it is Wrestlemania Week (Which I will be attending yayyyy) Most of the posts will be dedicated to Wrestling and the WWE.
