  1. I agree with pretty much everything you’ve said here. This community is amazing and has made my time as a blogger very refreshing. In fact, I sometimes get startled when straying into a different corner of the web and finding even a little toxicity!

  2. This is pretty much me. I am trying to get more consistent (work does get in the way most times) but I’m getting better at it and my other contributor helps alot. The community has been wonderful though!

    1. Yeah, it really is difficult to work and blog at the same time! Both take a lot of time of your day ;/ I think with time you will get better at writing faster and so on! At least it was what happened to me! šŸ˜›


  3. The anime blogging community is a treasure and I can never praise it enough, you are definetly a part of that too Arthifis! Posts like these is why we all come back and share.
    On a different note, ALL my posts are prescheduled way in advance – I wonder if anyone gets them in their readers???

    1. Oooooh thank you so much Irina! *blushes*

      Hmmm, great question! I’m not sure if the problem is the scheduling or not, but in my case it seems so. However, it doesn’t seem to be like 100% scheduled posts will happen since I schedule all my posts! šŸ™‚ I also don’t think it happens to everybody (?). It seems that only some people don’t have the post appearing in their reader. I don’t really understand lolol It’s the wonders of WordPress šŸ˜› But you can be reassured! Your posts have been appearing on my reader at least! šŸ˜€

      Hmmm… Maybe people just lose interest in my stuff on random days and I’m trying to find an explanation that makes it all better? We will never know!

      1. Uploading is the least of the problems since you put it there and just wait xD filming also takes time but after some experiences I think it gets better xD however, the editing is a nightmare ahah and let’s not forget that you have to have the right equipment which can be a little pricey x/

  5. This is pretty much why I still do what I do. I’ve been in a position where I could make money from my writing (i.e. it being my job) and… it wasn’t nearly as fun as being in complete creative control of my own site and getting to know the community more directly.

    Mostly I just like writing though, whatever it is. I’ve been writing pretty much daily for the last… God knows how long now, but having a clear “direction” and focus has really helped me keep the articles flowing on a daily basis!

    1. Yeah I know, but you really got a ptoblem because the gaming writing industry (is that how it is called) went to a place completely different from your believes where they bash games for the views! If you found a company that shared your values and write for them probably you wouldn’t feel that way šŸ˜›

      Loool I’m completely going to hit a wall someday! I also write almost daily, for way less time than you of course. However, most of the times I don’t have a direction, at least in long term, so let’s us see when am I going to hit the block creativity wall xD

  6. beautiful post, and I do agree. I believe I’ve been doing this for 5 years because of the same things. šŸ™‚
    I also like to follow really hardcore feminist blogs and SJW rants just to amuse myself sometimes.
    anyways, gturn that question around to your co-worker and grill them on why they like their hobbies, lol. i kid.

      1. Some of the blogs are ridiculously extreme, lol. I used to browse WP for some good blogs, and I randomly stumble into them.

        He sounds jealous, lol. Introduce him to blogging, he might love it too. xD
