Hi everyone, it’s that time again, time for an update once again. Whooo boy! A lot has happened since the last update, the schedule’s even more wrecked, I went on a blogging tour, and even more crazy things have happened. I wanted to make this post to talk about some things that have been going on with the blog as well as something (or somethings) special I have planned.
Let’s Hear it for the Space Tour!
Well first let’s start off with the highlight of August, the Space is the Place tour. Courtesy of the amazing Scott of Mechanical Anime Reviews, the Space is the Place Tour was a collaboration event where a cluster of us bloggers banded together to take you on a journey through the blogging galaxy. Posts related to both anime and space were rife, and when it came to me, I did a discussion on the galaxy destroyer, the star slayer, the planet eater, Ghidorah! This post was specifically about the Ghidorah from the Godzilla anime trilogy, an incarnation met with much controversy, but I defended because I genuinely love this incarnation. This post was a lot of fun to write, and I really did have fun being involved in a community project like this. As someone who’s been blogging for only slightly more than a year, working alongside people who’ve been blogging way longer than me, really made me feel welcome, so thank you once again to everyone involved.
Before the big announcement, I have some other thing to talk about. First off I do apologise for the slip in the number of posts these past few weeks/months. Work has been insanely busy during the summer break and I’ve not had much time both at work and at home to write up and post things. I do hope that in the coming weeks this changes as I have a huge backlog of discussions and reviews in the works, so I least I won’t run out of posts for the time being. On a more positive note, I want to say I am blown away on the amazing support some of my posts have been getting recently. I know numbers shouldn’t be priority when blogging, but it really does make me feel accomplished and proud when I see a certain post doing well. The biggest surprise was my Happy Birthday Godzilla post from November of last year, which has been getting crazy love. It’s quickly become my most viewed post to date by a huge margin, and to my absolute shock, when I searched up Godzilla designs for something, I found my post in the top search results. This really made me feel humbled and happy, seeing something I wrote make it into the top search results really made me smile. So thank you everyone for the support and love on my posts, it truly means the world to me.
Okay, enough beating around the bush, time for the special announcement. As I mentioned, my Space is the Place tour post tackled the anime Ghidorah from the Godzilla anime trilogy. Well this has inspired me to take things further. I am now official working on an Anime Godzilla themed month! That’s right, a whole month where I provide reviews and discussions about the Godzilla Anime trilogy. Why am I doing this? Well I’ve made a lot of references to the anime movies but never addressed them directly. Now when will this happen? Soon, that’s all I can say. I want to get ahead in the posts before posting them so as to not create any delays due to work and other things, but it won’t be long I promise. I also plan to do other special themed months, particularly around Senran Kagura as well as other anime, movie and gaming series, so be on the lookout for those too.
On that note, this update has come to a close. Sorry there wasn’t anything substantial today, I just wanted to give a few explanations and announcements about the future of this blog. I’m really looking forward to continuing this blog in new ways and really want to try and make it something special. So until then, thank you for reading and I hope you enjoyed it.
