Exploring the World of Anime

Happy Anniversary – One Year Down!!!

Hey, guys, today marks one year exactly that I started this blog! I cannot believe I made it one year. It was my goal to blog for at least a year without giving up and I am so happy that I was able to do it. It has definitely not been easy as each year brings with it unexpected happenings. As some of you know, I  got engaged a few months ago so that has led to a decline in my posts as I prepare for my nuptials. Some of you have been here since the beginning and that makes me feel great. I have a small following and I appreciate every one of you.

When I started this blog, I didn’t expect much. It was really for my entertainment, my safe place to talk about the anime I was watching. I also lurk on others’ blogs because I like to see what others are saying about anime even when I disagree. My blog really has no direction and to me its random, but it has been called “opinionated” several times and I guess it is just an opinion blog. It focuses a lot on my feelings, sometimes I try to tone down my strong emotions but I think they still come across. With all that said, let’s have a little romp back in time.

My First Post EVER.

My most popular posts:

Like a Lady: Females in Anime Blogging – This post garnered an unexpected response; I was very surprised especially being a novice anime blogger.

Anime Blogging: Does it encourage your hobby? – This was probably one of my favorite posts to write outside of the previous one.

J-List Giveaway – Everyone likes free stuff.

Riddle me this: Japanese Title vs. English Title – Another unexpected response to something that I had wondered about for a while before I decided to blog it out.

Facial Expressions in Anime – Leap Year Post! – I had a lot of fun with this post.

Once again, thank you to those who continue to reading my inconsistent blog. With that said, I will be taking a hiatus for the holidays. I may post intermittently but there is no guarantee, plus Black Ops II is out and I really want to spend a lot of my free time playing it. I kid. Or do I?


  1. Congrats on the one year and your engagement! My blog has approached the one year mark too. Funny how one year can go by quickly. I look forward to more of your future posts. 🙂

    • It is funny how quickly a year passes. I’m really surprised I made this milestone. Thank you for being a reader. Means a lot.

  2. Congrats on reaching the one-year mark, and of course on your engagement as well! May you have many more years of happy blogging!

    • Thank you and thank you for reading!

  3. Congrats on your one year~ I think opinionated blogs are great, so I’m looking forward to more. We may not always agree in such cases, but it’s definitely interesting to see another perspective. 🙂

    • I love different perspectives. Imagine agreeing on everything, you’d never learn anything new. Thank you for being a reader and staying along for the ride!

  4. Everyone is entitled to an opinion. If you don’t have one, I’ll give you mine. 😉
