Hopefully this week I’ll finish my Sound Euphonium watch, which cannot wait to write about. Kyoto Animation are the gods of emotional tugs. While watching this series I was reminded of my main reason I’m still blogging now, for four years.
My last few posts I’ve spoken before how less structured my blogging style has become and more freeform. To get to the centre of this post I’m at a point in life where your girl over here is tired of keeping such ‘structure’ in her posts all the time. My perfectionist comes out worse when writing about a anime or manga and I’ll let that roll it’s course because like those type of posts to have structure. As. . . for everything else blogging like this is what your going to be see a lot more of.
What lead to this decision?
Life is different now for me, Lita is older, she runs a youtube and new podcast. All the time from 2016 to now was my perfectionist portion, wanting to have consistency, structure, try all the new things. When you have been around the blogger block a few times, you know what works for you truly. Blogging in freeform like the great Irina does is what truly works for me these days. Like how things are for you in your blogger beginnings, then you become swallowed up in the blogger hype of trying all the new things, wanting to become noticed. It’s a normal phase within any community you enter into now. My days of that are done at this point because I’ve experienced enough to know what works for me in keeping to blog.
Honestly the reason I felt inspired to write this piece was from rejoining the manga community and reading in general. It’s been really exciting to all these titles during my six year hiatus from manga, swallowing up the new things. That excitement made me recollect my main reasoning for even blogging, to inspire, spread positivity and excitement itself. Nothing makes more happier than someone telling me that either a video or blog affected someone. I’ve received a mass amounts of comments from various people in the anime community recently, saying one of my instagram post inspired them to check out a series. My early blogger days this something I overlook easily because all I become focused on is growing my hatchling blog and paying more attention to the mental strain it was taking on me. Looking back you feel slightly foolish but that’s just what happens when entering into youtube, blogging etc.
I’m so tired of seeing the wasteful energy people put into over social media, ANYWHERE. About some drama that don’t mean a damn thing, so petty. To me they are just wasting their energy on something worthless where you or they could be focusing on something that they enjoy. Sadly this is not something you can press a button and it’ll stop. I always choose to be an individual that wants to be positive and spread excitement.
Lita sounds really passionate here . .
I am because your girl cares about the communities she’s become apart of and I don’t want to add to the negative masses. We have enough of that rubbish about.
While others want to write about something that doesn’t bring them excitement, I’ll be over here bringing all the usual humour and stupidness – that happen in my posts. Not to say I won’t not express when I don’t like something, I’ll be upfront, being an equal critic – by turning something I didn’t like into a funny remark or comment. That’s how people have come to know me in my blogging style and this won’t change. Just my always goal to spread excitement has ramped up a notch.
At one stage I forgot the excitement blogging brought me because I was too focused on the excitement my content was bringing others. It turned to pleasing the masses and not for my own satisfaction, that’s when things like blogging stop being fun all together, then hitting the delete button. Which is why you can expect more spur of the moment posts like this one, where it’s midnight, haha. You probably can tell from this point Lita sounds done with blog schedules and I am. They don’t work for me, putting expectation on me I cannot guarantee only makes me feel guilty these days. The ties of blogging consistency, schedules are at the bottom of my list now, they can stay there, ahaha.
It’s been a long time since I felt release in blogging, not to say whatever I’ve wrote up to now I’ve not enjoyed. Time for me to feel more free like this post has probably turned into a ramble. I just want to bring more posts bursting with more excitement than ever, excite others to check out series and so forth.
That’s all I want going forward with this blog now.
Leave a comment if you feel in your time blogging you have forgotten the excitement putting out a post, it became about satisfying your followers? and not about satisfying yourself? Being overtook by the ties of wanting to become big and what comes with this hobby?
Let’s have a fun discussion friends!!
You feel at peace when you write something like this is what I’m feeling ahaha.
I’ll see you all in the next post! *which is out this Saturday*
