The Story of my Blog:
Has been told one too many times but here it is again (mostly copied from another post because I’m lazy):
I started the blog three years ago. I can’t believe it’s already been three years! Anyways, it was during my first year of uni and I really just wanted a space where I could share my thoughts about anime with other people who enjoyed anime as well. I only really have one friend who is into anime and we have different tastes and I don’t see her as often so I don’t have someone I can talk to anime about all the time. The blog became a sort of space where I could talk about whatever anime I wanted. So yeah, three years down the line and hardly anything has changed on this blog save that I don’t have as much time as I used to.
Adding new types of content is ok!
Don’t ever be scared of changing things up on your blog. Just because you’ve said your main content in going to be anime, that doesn’t stop you from posting about other things you enjoy and want to talk about. Variation like that makes blogs more interesting and it’s a great way for your audience to get to know the person behind the blog. No human being is simply into one thing all their lives. Our hobbies and interests can change over time and it’s fine if your blog reflects that.
Engaging with the community (This is one I’m working on myself)
This can be a difficult one. It’s not compulsory or obligatory to actively engage with the community. If you don’t want to, you don’t have to. I try my best with this by liking posts that I’ve read and enjoyed and commenting on posts when I know what to say. I don’t comment that often because I don’t know what to say, but when I do have something to say, I’ll drop a comment. It’s a nice way to show your interest and appreciation for other bloggers and build good connections with fellow bloggers. Another way to engage with the community is through social media. If you check my twitter, it is dead most of the times but I do try from time to time. Other bloggers are quite active on their social media and that’s also a great way to get to know fellow bloggers and have conversations with them outside of the blog. It’s a good way to engage with the community and be part of it. Stuff like that can be helpful especially if you want to collab or need other bloggers’ opinions on something.
