It’s almost a week late, but D, sophiethestark, and Acacia Aurora all nominated me for this awesome award. You all should really check out their blogs! With a keen eye for detail, D reviews a large variety of series and is currently doing an episodic review series of Terror in Resonance. Sophie’s blog primarily consists of book reviews is a must-see if you’re a fan of literature. Actually, no, scratch that, you should see her blog even if you haven’t cracked open a book in years. Acacia Aurora is a relatively new blogger (well, so am I, haha) so you should go check out her posts about manga and anime and give her lots of love!
- Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog
- Give a brief story of how your blog started
- Give two pieces of advice for new bloggers
- Select up to 15 other blogs you want to give the award to
Remy Fool: The Origin
Why did I start up this yuri blog? Well, there’s a lot of reasons I could say here and most of them would sound pretty bad. I’ll spare you all my whole lifestory, though, and just say I needed an outlet
that didn’t involve alcohol, wahaha.
It’s because I wanted to talk about shows. I wanted to talk about the episodes I’ve watched and the games I’ve played. But my friends and family aren’t into the stuff I watch or play, so what else was I to do besides start a blog?
What I’ve learned, however, is that blogging is so much more than just posting your opinion about this and that. You gotta communicate with others, too! Which brings me to the next section…
Two Flimsy Pieces of Advice
Interact with other bloggers! Look over their posts. Like the ones that tickle your fancy and comment with your thoughts. If someone drops by your blog, then all the more reason to do so! Give them as much love as they’re giving you (or more) since they were willing to give you a little bit of their time. Blogging in a vaccuum can only be so fun, after all. But if you’re talking with others about the shows you like, or reading about the shows they like, you might get to learn a few things, broaden your mindset, and make friends!
Don’t be afraid to experiment with different blogging styles! Find one that works for you! Maybe you run an anime blog but you don’t want to do the play-by-play for every episode of a show that’s currently airing. So why don’t you try writing about your impressions in regards to each episode? Heck, maybe you can refrain from commenting on individual episodes and you can just review series as you finish them. It’s up to you! Well, I’m saying all of this fluffy stuff, but I’m still trying things out, too. However, I don’t think there’s a single “optimal template” that everyone should use.
The Amazing Nominees
I know that’s not even close to 15 people but it said to nominate at least 15 people so I could have technically just nominated one person but that’s even lamer than what I’m already doing.
I tried my best not to nominate someone who was already nominated, but please forgive me if I messed up
with your fist. If you don’t do blogger awards, then feel free to ignore this post and/or post lenny faces in the comments section or something. Go wild! It’s Tuesday! We need some craziness to get through the week.
That’s all for now, folks
