Six Months!

Oh, I actually used an exclamation in my post title. Well, I guess that’s because I’m excited as reaching six months without losing momentum was one of my major targets when I started this blog. I figured if I made it that far it would have become a habit. And that’s actually kind of true. Fitting in time for blogging and reading blogs has become part of my routine and so I don’t feel like it’s an extra thing that has to be done but rather it is something I look forward to in my day.

As always I want to thank my followers and readers as without you this blog serves no purpose.

Some reflections on October:

This month my post with the highest views was my review of Yuri on Ice episode 1. I always find it strange when a single episode reviews gets a lot of hits but with Yuri on Ice I’m a little less surprised given all the buzz about it.

That said, the posts that consistently get the most views are my In Case You Missed It posts, my Tuesday’s Top 5, and Friday’s Feature. And on that note, the Top 5 list that still has the most views are the top 5 reasons for dropping an anime andΒ  the top Friday’s Feature is one where I looked at the flaws in the time travel concept in Orange (mostly because a lot of people disagreed with my view but that was kind of fun too).

All and all though, October has been an awesome month for blogging. The big news: I hit 500 followers on word press. This has meant a lot of great conversations and finding even more blogs to visit to read about and talk about anime.

I’m also pretty sure this is my 600th post though I might be out by one or two posts.

So yay! Six months! Now I just have to make it to 12.

  1. Well done on sticking with it for six months, and your very well deserved 500 followers. Those first few months are the hardest, working up the motivation to keep posting when you’re still rallying your followers, and just getting into a rhythm. But after that awkward period, god does it all fly by. Won’t feel like 5 minutes before you’re celebrating your first year. Take it from someone who’s seen that landmark flash by and fade into the distance again.

  2. Congratulations on the 6-month milestone. You’re a god damn juggernaut, haha. Posting your own content practically every day, socializing on twitter, and even taking the time to drop comments over more blogs I can count rather than just leaving a like. You make me feel like the laziest writer of all time and I don’t know how you do it but hats off to you and I’m sure you’ll make it to your next milestone no problem.

    1. Thank you for the compliment, though I”d hardly describe you (or any blogger) as lazy. Your blog has some great conent that is regularly updated and I look forward to seeing your most recent posts.

  3. Congratulations!
    Your posts are always interesting to read and your posting rate is really impressive. I hope your success continues.

  4. I’m happy you were able to achieve your goal. To be honest, I was worried when I read an earlier milestone post since it kind of sounded like you were slightly forcing yourself to blog while hoping it would become a habit, but it seems like that isn’t the case anymore. I look forward to reading more and more of your posts.

    1. I’m just a person who is big on routines and starting anything new is always a gamble if I can’t make it a part of my routine. I’m glad blogging has worked its way into my everyday because I’m really enjoying it.

  5. 6 months of constant posts? I’d love to get into the habit of that myself haha.

    Congrats! It’s quite the effort to reach such a milestone! I’m sure you’ll get to a year no problem!

    Keep it up!

  6. Congratulations πŸ˜€ Don’t worry about reaching a year….I don’t think you will have any problems reaching it. Reading your posts has become pretty much a routine for me every day, and I always look forward to them. Have already received some great tips because of reading your blog, so thank you for that πŸ˜€ Keep up the good work, and keep enjoying yourself πŸ˜€πŸ˜€

  7. Woah! Definitely feels like you’ve been around longer than 6 months! Having over 500 quality posts is nothing to sniff at either. Keep up the excellent work! πŸ˜€

  8. This is quite the achievement. I don’t think you’ll have any problem keeping up your momentum, especially considering how much content you have. Be proud of your success, but I’m sure it’s only going to keep growing.

  9. I used to post on a regular basis, but I am only at 443 posts for my posts. 600 posts is some prolific posting especially when you actually care about the quality of your posts. Anyway, congratulations of your milestone and I look forward to read more of your posts in future.

    1. Thanks, I hope you enjoy future posts. As I said, without readers the blog kind of has no purpose so if people aren’t enjoying it then I need to change what I’m doing.

I'd love to know what you think.
