Nominated for a Blogger Recognition Award

First up a huge thank you to Fiddletwix from Anime Madhouse for the nomination. I really appreciate it. Now, given in the rules it asks me to give the history of my blog and I’ve kind of done that a couple of times now, most recently here, and then it asks for advice for new bloggers, and I’ve kind of done that a lot too, I’m actually not going to follow the rules but I did want to take a moment to recognise some other fantastic bloggers out there and their contributions to the great community on WordPress.

Unfortunately, I haven’t included everyone who deserves a mention, there are just too many people, so please feel free to add other bloggers who deserve some recognition in the comments below.

I have included the rules so if you would like to respond to this award, they are down the bottom of the post.


Irina (I Drink and Watch Anime): Running a fantastic blog and spreading positivity through the community. Also, putting up with my erratic schedule as we try to write another collaboration. She is definitely deserving of the god status that was bestowed upon her through the very official twitter channels.

Raistlin: Let’s be honest, you probably already know Raistlin. however, outside of being an excellent supporter of everyone in the community, he runs an amazing blog covering movies, board games, TV shows, and of course anime.

Keiko’s Anime Blog: Gives some great thoughts on the shows of the season. While our watch lists seldom have much in common, I enjoy following each season through with Keiko and I particularly enjoy their weekly round-ups.

Where-ever-I-Look: Want anime coverage but would also love to see TV and movies covered with depth and thought? This is the blog to check out with a huge number of posts coming out each week covering a variety of media.

Jon Spencer Reviews: Again, most of us probably know Jon Spencer as he runs his ABC polls, reviews anime, started the creator’s showcase, and is incredibly supportive of the community.

Never Argue With A Fish: Presents some series reviews with interesting observations and a clear opinion. Never afraid to say what they are thinking and well worth the read even when I don’t agree.

Floating Into Bliss: For something a little more thought provoking than episode reviews, this blog continues to put out some very interesting articles that are thought provoking.

The Visualist’s Veranda: You want a critical review with a clear and honest point of view supported by great reasons? This is the blog for you. Kapodaco isn’t one to play nice when something doesn’t work but their passion for anime (and other media) is on clear display.

Mechanical Anime Reviews: Consistently interesting posts on a range of anime and ideas. Scott puts in a lot of thoughts, even taking content down when he’s not happy with the result and reworking the post.

KawaiiPaperPandas: Some really thought provoking episode reviews as well as a range of other great anime content to check out on this blog.

Lethargic Ramblings: Not afraid of unpopular opinions, Lethargic Ramblings posts some personal and thought provoking content on a range of anime issues as well as their thoughts on shows and games.

Arthifis: They are a relative new-comer but they are fast making their presence felt in the aniblogging community and I really hope that they are here to stay.

Marth’s Anime Blog: Marthaurion was one of the earlier bloggers I came across and he continues to post some really interesting episode commentary. I love it when I happen to be watching the shows he is covering because it really adds something to the viewing experience to catch Marth’s take on the episode.

A Nerdy Perspective: Recently hit 100 followers and continues to put out some excellent content following some seasonal stuff and also writing some interesting articles.

The Rules:

1.Say thanks to who nominated you and leave a link back to that persons blog.
2.Give the story or history of your blog.
3.Give two or more pieces of advice for new bloggers.
4. Nominate 10 other bloggers and link their blogs.

Thanks for reading.

  1. Congratulations in your award! Of course, it’s well deserved! Also, thank you for mentioning me! 🙂 It amazes me seeing my name alongside these awesome bloggers! Also, there were some I didn’t know about, so thank you for the new awesome blogs for me to follow! 😀

  2. Congratulations but of course it’s well deserved! I’m going to have to talk to Arthifis – I’m struggling to live up to adult status, od status is just a mean jab at this point.
    I am honesty touched to be included here, it means a lot to me.
    Also – Never argue with a fish is a fantastic blog name! Thanks for making me discover it

  3. Thanks for including me alongside all of these other excellent people! 😀 I saw a few names that weren’t familiar to me so I’ll have to check ’em out for sure!

  4. Gonna comment here and give some love to my guy Nefarious Reviews. Doesn’t have any social media as far as I’m aware and never interacts with anyone outside of his blog (I think?), but damn is he dedicated to reviewing and blogkeeping. Super organized, dresses sharp, and provides consistently insightful bite-sized reviews of all sorts of anime. Almost a myth to me with how unattached he appears.

    Thanks for the mention!

    1. Yeah, Nefarious Review definitely deserves a mention. I love reading his stuff (but also am unaware of any other social media stuff). Well nominated.

  5. Great post, and a lovely collection of wonderful bloggers that you put up. Really had to laugh about mentioning Irina’s God status 😂😂 But the fun thing is: it’s totally true: she really is God. Now who is this Raistlin guy though??🤔🤔
    Haha…thanks for the mention and the kind words. I really appreciate it: and it seems the let’s make Raistlin blush theme continues lol 😂😂

I'd love to know what you think.
