A beacon of life in a wasteland of desires
Exactly 5 months ago, Hanabi texted me about starting up a blog for anime. I was still like a ‘virgin’ to anime at that time, and was rather doubtful of the purpose of the blog. We eventually decided that it would be a ‘happy place’ where people can download anime in a special format [MP4] and read previews / reviews of the season’s ongoing anime, with Hanabi doing the former and me doing the latter.
Now the blog has garnered more than 30,000 hits and we haven’t looked back since then- plus we recruited other people into our cause as well.
As much as we love getting hits on this voluntary voyage of ours, it has come to my attention that the blog has become more of a ‘pit stop’ for anime downloads
Do cars come to pit stops to chill out with the garage engineers or technicians ? No, they get a new, fresh set of tires and they’re off to whatever destination they were originally heading towards.
Viewers don’t comment here very often, and if they do, it’s either about missing links or just compliments for the series that we’ve uploaded. Finding comments about a certain episodic is just about as rare as finding roaming legendary pokemon in the grass – cheesy analogy, but you get the picture.
Relatively, perhaps Hanabi has done his job better than I have, in getting stuff worthy of hits up on this blog – or that the things I write about just doesn’t tickle everyone’s fancy enough. About 6 months of immersing myself into Japanese Otaku culture and viewing various anime does not entitle me to haggle for comments about my posts regarding the said stuff, but I do appreciate at least feedback on the posts written over here. My lack of networking is often to blame for this as well [ loner ], but I am constantly looking for potential people to put on my blogroll as well.
Juggling the role of a student in a tertiary institute, a gamer and a anime blogger is never easy, but I strive to improve from time to time to bring fellow anime fans things that matter. I do admit that the frequency of my posts are irregular and far apart – for that I am sure to blame myself. Nevertheless, my aim in posting remains clear: to make substantive posts that garner people’s constructive comments.
Nevertheless, the aim of this post is not to complain, but just to point out whoever may be frequenting this site that a comment – Feedback, in essence – a day makes my budding writer life a tad bit happier.
