Between September 2015 and July 2016, Habitica administrators featured chosen Habitica challenges on the blog. In May 2016, Bailey announced that challenge creators could submit their challenges to be featured through this form. The July 2016 spotlight was the last challenge spotlight on the blog, but future challenge spotlights will still be presented through Bailey announcements.
New Year’s 2016
To help Habiticans get ready for a fantastic year, the blog published a four-part guide on tips for using Habitica to stick to your 2016 New Year’s Resolutions after the initial magic may have worn off. The guide had a companion challenge that allowed participants to follow along with the tips as they were posted.
Once a month, the blog highlights a helpful post from the wiki with tips about productivity, wellness, and optimizing your use of Habitica.
In addition to regular short posts about new features and other Habitica-related updates, as well as links to posts from the blog, the Tumblr website also has a few regular features and special pages.
Weekly Status Report
- Main article: Weekly Status Report
As noted by the title, the weekly status report is a regular feature on the Tumblr site where Habitica disseminates general news regarding the game. These reports generally include new features, recent updates, reminders for limited time features, and teasers for upcoming events.
The Tumblr site features fan art posted on Tumblr or in the Tavern by users of Habitica. Fan art may include comics, portraits of players' avatars, or depictions of in-game activities.
