  1. welll embarrassed is right….I don’t think I’ve ever experienced this before but I’m at a loss for words…
    Wait I found them: OMG Arthifis this is one of the nicest things anyone has ever said about me. Being called an archetypal Canadian is all I’ve ever strived for! Being compared to Nyanko sensei is way more than I could have reasonably hoped for and being mentioned in the same conversation as Karandi and Raistlin, both of which I would also consider mentors and just great people (how the heck is Raistlin single???), is just an honor.
    And most importantly, having you think of me as a friend is the best present I could get.

    1. I was able to make have a loss for words for a moment? Huge win! \o/
      Glad you liked it eheh! Loved to spread the love to the people who inspire me eheh
      Well, I had to insert Nyanko-sensei somewhere if I was going to talk about you and in the moment I uploaded the Gif to my draft I just though “yeah this is how imagine Irina” xD
      Ooooh thank you so much for seeing my friendship so precious eheh and honored or not everything I said is completely true! Xp

  2. I agree with absolutely everything you write. These three people have influenced and are constantly influencing me all the time. They all mean love to me and to this community and we should all love bomb them like you have done. ❀️ (also, this community is the most amazing community I have ever been in. Everyone is so supportive and positive.)

    1. Yeah right? They are always blowing my mind when I see them going completely out of their way to help someone! And yes, it’s completely true that the WordPress community is the nicest one i ever encountered in the internet xp

  3. I’d love to tell you who inspires me but right now I’m blushing from head to toe. Thank you for your kind words, though I will admit I don’t think anyone has ever described me as a mother type before.
    Okay, you’ve already named Raistlin who not only inspires me because of the range his blog covers and his ability to always say what needs to be said in the comments, but also is someone who always manages to give me confidence and encouragement when I need it the most.
    However, I think I’ve always kind of looked up to Kapodaco as a blogger. They are fairly critical and blunt, but I love the analytical nature of their posts and the language they use to express themselves. Admittedly, they aren’t quite as active on their blog as they used to be because they have some other projects going now, but particularly during my first year blogging, they were someone I looked up to quite a lot and I loved the constructive criticism they would leave on some of my posts as it regularly made me think about what I was writing and why.
    That said, I love the aniblogging community. Everyone is always so welcoming and it is great to discuss anime with so many fans of the medium.

    1. You’re blushing? Then mission complete xD
      No? Well then that’s because they don’t know what a mother is xD it’s truth that you always have a posture more serious, but that doesn’t mean you are not fit to be a mother or that you are not a motherly type xp
      Hmm I don’t know them, need to start following them! XD it’s really funny to read you talking about blogger comments what I now think when you leave me a comment xD it’s like the pupil becoming the master and passing the wisdom to the new generation xp
      And yeah completely agree! You can be yourself and people will accept you nevertheless which is something that you don’t see much in society unfortunately

  4. I 100% agree with your choices and all the reasons you stated! They are all very lovely and very supportive and a huge part of the community! I love all the love that this community has! It’s honestly the most toxic free part of the internet I think I’ve ever encountered! πŸ˜„

    1. Riiiight? It’s amazing how they get out of their way to help others! I for example have been featured in their 3 blogs and just amazes me that they always take their time to help us, the new ones xD
      And completely agree! It’s very rare to have a space in the internet where you can just be yourself and people just accepts you or if they don’t they just move along without saying anything xp

  5. Great post!….*press send* πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
    Sorry had to make a little joke first before I’m going to go into full on comment mode. Like Irina I am a bit at a loss for words here. This is just..just so amazingly kind. To be mentioned in the same ranks as two bloggers that just mean the world to me, and that I look up to every day that alone is enough to make my face grow into full crimson mode here.
    But the things you said about me…seriously thank you so much. If you ever find the answer to the question of why I am still single, please let me know…because I’m still trying to find that answer πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
    Karandi has inspired me from pretty much the start of my blogging career. She and I started our respective blogs almost at the same time, and she single handedly has been responsible for getting me back into anime. Her posts are always high quality, and how she manages to be everywhere, read/write so many posts each day is beyond me quite frankly. (Though I suspect clones πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚) And let’s not forget how sweet and kind she is as well.
    And then there is Irina…a blogger that drives us all to be more like her. The support she has shown to new and old bloggers alike is nothing short of astounding. Her blogwarming party is pretty much the best idea ever…and then the way she thanks her now 500 plus followers…seriously it is so amazing. But like Karandi…she is just the sweetest.
    But let’s not forget you here: your 100 followers thank you video is something that I still talk about today with friends at work. It was something so out of this world..that it’s hard to describe how I felt about that. And just like the two aforementioned bloggers: you are every bit as friendly and sweet as the both of them. To answer that ? though: yes I definitely count you as a friend 😊😊
    Wow…and now my comment has exploded. Seriously though from the bottom of my heart..thanks so much…this has just been one of the best days ever on WordPress!

    1. Loool xD come on raistlin! Dont start doing what I just said what made you special 🀣🀣
      Oh thank you so much, but I think k that you 3 all gave way more kindness to the community in general (and to me in specific) that this is just a small gesture honestly.
      And don’t worry I will! It’s a bummer that we live way apart, if not i would just send you in dates with all my single female friends xD (just kidding… Only the ones that I seem that were a good fit xD)
      Well if it’s clones I’m going to feel a little upsets! I mean I asked you guys the other day and she said she wanted to buy one too! If she has one she needs to share that with us!!! XD
      Yeah, that thank you post was what made me end up coming up with the 100 push-ups post xD that the great thing about feeling inspired from others, we end up making things that you never thought that you would be able to do in the first place xD
      Yaiiii I! Frieeeends forever xD
      And you are welcome! This was just a small gesture! XD but makes me completely out of this world to feel that I contributed for your best day on WordPress xD


      1. Haha…I was very tempted yesterday to just leave that comment: great post! (And then of course totally get back to a real answers) But I just couldn’t do that. The post you wrote was just too kind to do that😊
        Haha…well, let’s see if I can arrange to move out of Holland at some point lol πŸ˜‚ That would be really kind of you though. Oh well…I try not to let it get to me too much. There are days when that works, and days that it doesn’t. But yeah…it’s okay really. Haven’t totally given up yet.
        Lol…yeah..if she has some clones stored up somewhere…I could use them too. Wow…sometimes it really is tough to keep..especially on days where you almost have no time to blog.
        I’m not kidding. A few of my colleagues from work who also follow my blog, spoke to me the other day of those 100 push up and how that was such an awesome thing you did. So…you are famous now in Holland πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
        Haha..definitely friends forever: truly mean that 😊😊
        Well…sorry, you call it a small gesture: I call it a HUUGEE gesture. You made three people very happy (and admittedly blush like there was no tomorrow lol), but it was seriously very kind and sweet of you to do this. You are great, just so you know that πŸ˜‰

      2. Well I can’t possibly know how you feel regarding being single… I could say yes and it’s going to be OK, but that’s not how I work xD I was and am extremely lucky of meeting my person at age 20 and it has been almost 5 years since then and I think it’s going to be forever… Now what I can say is, it will appear someone and it will be when you are least expecting! I know this sounds clichΓ© but the truth is it was what happened to me and to a lot of my friends… It’s stupid but it works.
        I think the problem is not only when you have full days… The other one is being that this is something that takes a daily effort and I’m going to be honest, there are days that I’m not really that eager to read, comment and so on xP not because I don’t love doing it is just that sometimes I just prefer to play video games and just… Well be lazy xD and I know blogging it’s not my job and it’s all about the fun, but my blog is a serious matter to me and the truth is, sometimes I need to push myself to work on it as everything in life, it doesn’t mean you are not having fun xD it’s just that you are human eheh maybe some day I’ll write a post about it xp
        Really? *blush* oh my God! I wasn’t expecting that… At all! But hey! If you say I’m famous in Holland I hope that when I visit I have a Troup waiting for me! XP
        Oooh and there you go making me lush again! But yes, I also mean it!
        Are you coming at me or something because of yesterday… You are making blush in every paragraph you are writing damn it! Thank you so much, and yeah if the post made you all happy then the objective was complete xD

      3. Well…it’s exactly as I just said 😊 Some days I am totally fine with it, and then there are days that I feel very alone. Honestly though…and I am not just saying this, ever since I started blogging I feel that lonely feeling much less. I really have met such wonderful people here that have become really good friends(yes I count you amongst those) and that really makes it all worth it. But yeah…I know, it can still happen. But after being alone for such a long time now, the hope for me is just simply not really there anymore. I kind of live by the day, and if it happens: it happens you know (of course I would be jumping up and down of happyness if that were to happen though πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚) That said: I really think it is very awesome that you have met someone and that it’s the real deal. Everyone deserves that and it couldn’t have happened to a nicer guy πŸ˜‰
        Haha..well..even though it might not seem like it: I have days like that as well. I have a very demanding day job. And there are days where I come home and just want to crash and not comment/read posts. Not because I don’t love doing it either….but simply because at times I can just be very tired and want to relax a bit (or just be selfish and do some other stuff πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚). But granted..it doesn’t happen very often lol…I guess you could say I am an addict now. But yeah I understand what you are saying, and I can totally relate. So no worries.
        Haha…no I am not coming at you because of yesterday lol. I’m only saying things that I think should be said: and I simply meant every single word of it 😊
        So really thanks for your kindness and being an awesome friend πŸ˜€

  6. Hahahaha… Again… Hahaha… I’m sorry. Can’t help but laugh at the three people you mentioned and their comments…Your kind words to them are really blushable (wait? is that a word?)… hahaha… Anyway, I totally agree with everything you said about them.. I actually just met them because I initially planned that my blog would be everything bookish but I’m changing it now little by little… But then I met Michel and next thing I know I already know Irina and Karandi too.. They’re awesome…

    Kidding aside though, thank you for mentioning me and your kind words.. And when you said about my post affecting you just made me smile and warmth crept into my heart because really, I think all of us bloggers though we blog about different things there is ONE THINg we are in common: WE WANT TO TOUCH/AFFECT OTHER PEOPLE’s LIVES. Right? So thank you for reminding me that I somehow doing a good job(I JUST BLUSHED big time after typing that… hahahaha) anyway, Though we just met (It doesnt matter if it’s only virtually), I knew I’d like you as a person.. Also, let me just share that I also have phases of depression… SO if you wanna talk whenever you need it, you can count on me… You can just find my contacts somewhere in my site..hahaha.. Anyway, Im sure your boyfriend and mother are always there for you which I’m glad for that. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    Okay Im now out of words… which is a little weird because while reading your post, I was so sure I have many things to say.. but I read the previous comments and they already said everything I wanted to say.. hehehe..

    …:) πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

    1. Well if blushable is not a word we will make that happen and add it to the dictionary xD
      Comoletely agree with you and I had the same experience, I also met them all in the same week… Maybe they are the same person (whaaaat?) naaaah… With the work they all do a person wouldn’t be able to do that much xD they already amaze me by doing work of their own ahah
      No problem! I completely mean it! And yes, you can say that your mission is complete because you did affected me xD reading g your posts feel likes just hearing a friend talking, although one sided xD, but it’s a huge feet! So congratulations eheh
      You also blushed? Niiiice! I’m even making people that was not my objective blushing! Extra points to me ahahah xD
      Fortunely the depression just happened when I was in high school, after that only anxiety problems, although I see myself cured at the moment (but of course I do have some days that are not that good and I need to apply some of my strategies to calm down xP). But yeah, know that my door is always open if you want to talk! I can’t guarantee that I will be able to solve your problems, but at least I’m here to help whenever needed! And thank you so much for your kindness eheh

      1. Well, i’m an aspiring writer.. Don’t worry once I get published Ill make blushable an official word.., Creative writers make new words everyday anyway…hahaha… And whoah,,, If they’re same persons, that would be amazing but weird.. hahaha…

        ANd well, well, we’re both doing great at this then since we can both affect people.. Happy writing/blogging to you always. πŸ™‚

        About depression, I was already suffering it when I was in highschool but I didn’t know it then maybe because it wasn’t too serious then…

        Thanks again for the kindness, πŸ™‚

  7. If Karandi is the mother (she just finds you – I know!). And Raistlin could be the supportive brotherly type (he’s single because he’s probably busy taking care of us). Irina would be the friend who makes you drink awesomeness straight up.
    Couldn’t agree more with your choices. This is such a heartfelt and wonderful post. Hope you made them all blush!

  8. Haha, you know what, before I got down to your nominations I predicted it would be those three. And I was right! You’re absolutely right though, all of them are a blessing to this community and deserve every bit of love and appreciation they get. ❀

  9. I was looking at Karandi’s latest awards post for various people to follow, and once you followed me on my own blog, I recognized your name and thought, “Oh, yes, yes! I need to check this person out.”

    Note that this is the only post of yours I’ve read thus far, but there’s a general sweetness to you that I think comes across well in the amount of time spent somewhat off-topic in emotional quips. I’ve read many bloggers who try to do either one of two things: be incredibly analytical and structured or aloof and expressive. Based on this, I feel you lean much more on the latter, but based on the premise of your blog and the titles of various posts throughout, your goal doesn’t seem to be expressing your opinion in an organized and professional (if that sounds harsh, I do apologize) way, but rather in an empathetic and profoundly personal tone. In the past, I wouldn’t have followed due to such a stark difference in the priorities of our posts, yet I like this post alone enough to reach out and bid you welcome to the aniblogging community, assuming you haven’t been here too long. (Veteran of about five years myself.) Good post.

    I look forward to seeing what you can produce in the near future. : ]

  10. Well first of all, let me say that I’m trully happy for you to remember me to the point of wanting to check me out! πŸ˜€

    Ahahahah no it doesn’t really sound harsh! πŸ˜€ Well, first of all this one was a more emotional post and believe it or not I do have a system πŸ˜€ Being the main one Anime on tuesdays, personal posts on wednesdays and video games on thursdays. I also came up with a system (if you can call it like that) in the past few weeks, so when you find my latest reviews you will see that I always review them in the same way (It’s also easier for me to write the reviews doing that). However it is always with a more empathetic and personal tone, that’s for sure! I try to write the same way as I speak and moreover I’m trying to review Anime and Video Games withou over analyzing them, so at the end is only my personal point of view and rambling πŸ™‚

    That said, well, I can’t possibly say how honored I feel to have a blogger that has been blogging for 5 years to come read my post and liking it enough to the point of start following and leave such a good and insightful comment! πŸ˜€ It does mean a lot to me for someone to take time of his day to read my posts, what can I say when that same person takes the time for writing a comment and giving me feedback of my work (I’m those kind of people that always need feedback to be certain that I am doing a good job!). This way, thank you very much! ^.^ And thank you for welcoming me, I’ve been blogging for more or less 4 months, so yes I’m stil baby when it comes to blogging!

    Hope that you like my future posts and I am also looking forward to start reading you future (and past) work! Cheers to a new blogging relationship!!!!
