Eight Years (Plus One Day)

Hey gang!

Wow, it is hard to believe that as of December 27, it has been eight years since I started blogging. I would have forgotten about this completely had I not been catching up on reading Ogiue Maniax, where Sdshamshel had a belated 7th anniversary post for his own blog.

I remember when I started blogging, I thought I’d do more free form writing, including comedy pieces. I did my comedy article on how Inuyasha was going to end. I had my piece on why I believed there would never be a Fruits Basket 2. However, after a couple of months, the blog shifted into mostly a synopsis/comment style based on whatever anime or manga I happened to be involved with at the time. There’s nothing wrong with that, but this form of writing ends up being the most time consuming since I end up going over material multiple times in the course of coming up with a synopsis.

These days, time is seemingly in short supply for me. When I initially scored my present job nearly 1.5 years ago, things weren’t so bad in terms of my free time. However, as of March 2014, the project I got put on sucks up more and more of my free time and often leaves me in a mental state that’s really not conducive to writing. That’s one thing I find very unfortunate. Hopefully in 2015, I can work from home most, if not all of the time, which could help on that front.

I think the best thing that has come from writing a blog is all of you who read it, especially those of you who take the time to comment. Some of you have made me laugh. Some of you have given me things to think about. Some of you have taught me things I didn’t know. Some of you have pointed me to anime or manga I might not have investigated otherwise.  All of you have been awesome and for that, I thank you. ^_^

Maybe this year I’ll try to do more free form writing; it will depend on what my muse inspires in me. Regardless, I wanted to take the time to thank all of you for your continued support for however long my blog lasts.

Yu Yu Hakusho

Additional: When I wrote this, it was plus one day. When it published, it became plus two days. ^_^;

    I think I coincidentally found your blog seven years ago or so, when I started reading Negima. Has it been so long…?

    Anyway, thank you, too, for keeping this blog active. Please keep up with the good work as long as you have the free time and enjoy doing this. 😉

      And thank you for being one of my Fate/stay night educators. I don’t think you were making comments when I blogged about Deen’s Fate/stay night (or if you did, it was under another name).

    • Farray says:

      Nah, you’re right, I didn’t. It was always under this name. There were so many people already commenting on DEEN’s FSN (and you only would have heard me complaining anyway), I didn’t think you needed my info dumps. ^_^
