These supporters are amazing and I’d love to be able to give them all a hug as they’ve helped me keep my WordPress Plan and domain name as well as access to anime. This year I’ve also been working on improving my understanding of SEO and trying to make my blog visuals and social media presence a little more planned rather than just whatever happens using Canva to try to coordinate things.

I also remove google ads from sponsored posts (may have missed one or two) and am hopeful that eventually I can turn off advertising altogether.

2022 Spring Season – Blog Sponsor Drive

Now I am trying something different this season. Rather than sponsoring an anime and then having to contact me to discuss which show leading to back and forth emails or direct messages on twitter only to find the anime you wanted was already sponsored and so on, this time you select the anime you want to prior to sponsoring.

Hopefully this will simplify the process. You can still choose to simply donate without sponsoring a given series.

Goal?

We’re aiming for $100 during the Spring 2022 season with the next drive to occur in June.

Current total = $25

Please ensure I can contact you via the email address used for payment so that I can confirm what you want on your sponsor’s badge which will be displayed on the about page as well as on any posts you have sponsored. However, if you contact me before you sponsor we can discuss and organise all details before any is made payment.

Blog Sponsor Option 1 – Donation to the Blog

To make a general donation you can use this link and select the amount.

You will receive a blog sponsor badge on the about page (if you want one). Please ensure I can contact you to get details for your badge (including the image and link you would like as well as a brief description of what you do – see examples above).

Blog Sponsor Option 2 – Pick One of the Spring Anime Shows To Sponsor

By sponsoring an anime your sponsor badge will appear on:

  • A maximum of 12 episode posts (min 600 words per post) during the Spring 2022 anime season.
  • 1 review of the season + 1 article discussing an aspect of the anime.

Should your chosen anime be unavailable to me for any reason once the season begins a replacement series will be negotiated or a refund provided.

Use this link to access the spreadsheet for the Spring 2022 season. Please add the name you want for your badge and the link you would like beside the anime you are sponsoring and then make payment to ensure that two people do not try to sponsor the same series.

Anime sponsorship is AU$20 per series. The options for the Spring Season are below. If there is a different series you really want to sponsor instead, contact me to discuss.

Please ensure I can contact you to get details for your badge if you are a new sponsor (including the image and link you would like as well as a brief description of what you do – see examples above).

Blog Sponsor Option 3 – Custom Post

If you would like to choose a post topic contact me to discuss first.

If we agree on a topic, this option will cost $10 which can be paid to my PayPal.

The post will be a minimum of 1000 words in length and appear on the blog during the Spring Anime season (April – June 2022).

You will receive a blog sponsor badge on the about page (if you want one) as well as on the post written on the topic provided. Please ensure I can contact you to get details for your badge (including the image and link you would like as well as a brief description of what you do – see examples above).

Thank-you

Your ongoing support is appreciated as it helps keep the blog going.

A Huge Thank-You To 100 Word Anime Blog Sponsors

Blog sponsorship and donation

The September blog sponsors drive has come to a close and I want to give a huge thanks to everyone who contributed. While I didn’t quite hit the target for September the contributions made will certainly help off-set the costs of the blog.

The amazing people who supported the blog in September and April are listed below and all of them are fantastic members of the ani-blogging community and I’m very thankful for them. Also a huge thanks to those who helped share the word on Twitter during September. I understand not everyone is in a position where they can contribute financially so I appreciate your help in getting the word out.

This Fall season I will have four anime that have been sponsored for review. Winter will have one anime of sponsored content.

If you would still like to sponsor or support 100 Word Anime (or would like to sponsor reviews of a winter anime) please contact me and we can discuss.

Thank-you

As always I want to thank you, my readers. The content on the blog exists for you and I love hearing your voices in the comments.

A Huge Thank-You To April’s Blog Sponsors

Blog sponsorship and donation

For those who missed the April blog sponsor drive, largely this was an idea that cam about because I didn’t really want to continue with Patreon’s model of ongoing payments but I also needed to find a way to help keep the blog going and hopefully in the future growing.

Blog sponsors

I set a target of $200 for April with the intention of running a second blog sponsor drive in September and was incredibly thankful when I actually hit that target with a huge thanks to the following blog sponsors (as well as those who ultimately chose not to have a badge).

The money raised in April went toward offsetting some of the cost of renewing my WordPress Plan mid-year and was a hugely appreciated help in keeping the blog running along. I’ll also say that for those who chose a series for me to review, it has been interesting given I’m committing to review something that might turn out amazing or not but either way I’m not walking away from it.

It actually made me feel like I was taking reviewing seriously rather than just watching whatever caught my fancy. More than that, I found myself actively looking for different aspects of the shows to write about each week and I think the last six months has seen my episode review writing get better. Less a reaction and more focused on trying to review or analyse particular parts of the shows.

This wasn’t an intended outcome of this process but I think I really liked it. None of my blog sponsors put any pressure on me but I found myself wanting to write a slightly longer episode review or have a closer look at a different part of the anime because I wanted to do better. And that can only be better for the blog in the long run.

Excited that blog sponsorship has improved writing.

That said, the April blog sponsor drive was only a first step and the September blog sponsor drive will open soon looking for sponsors for existing posts as well as for series coming out in the Fall 2021 and Winter 2022 seasons.

Thank-you

April Sponsorship Drive Wrap-Up and Thanks

In case 4

2021 April – Post Sponsor Drive

red and brass dart pin on dartboard

Target Achieved!

$205 raised toward the blog in April.

There’s going to be a lot of thanks expressed in this post because I am really thankful to my readers and to those who have offered support for the blog going forward.

I am so excited that this idea I had has kind of worked out. I was a little worried it seemed a bit odd but it felt a little fairer than my previous patron efforts. That said, this was the first attempt at doing this and I will be running another drive in September so for all my readers I’d love some feedback.

If you did sponsor a post, a series or made a donation:

  • Are you happy with the current structure using paypal?
  • Are you happy with the cost of post sponsorship and series sponsorship?
  • Is there more I can do to acknowledge you wonderful people in the future?

If you didn’t sponsor this time around for whatever reason I’d still like your feedback on whether you think this is a reasonable structure going forward and whether there are other options I should offer in future.

But who are the sponsors that I am so thankful for?

There are also a number of people who made a donation who either declined a badge or did not (yet) reply when I emailed them asking if they wished to have one made. That door is still open for those who donated as I would absolutely love to acknowledge your support (though I also respect those who wish to prefer anonymous).

If you don’t follow the amazing people above, I would absolutely recommend visiting their blogs – click on their badge. These guys are all active participants in our ani-blogging community and just great people to get to know.

A final huge thank-you to everyone who has chosen to support the blog this year.
