Anniversary Special Post – Scheduling with Remy


A huge thank-you to Remy for joining in the anniversary celebration. Remy is pretty well known already in the anime community, but for those that don’t follow his blog, The Lily Garden, you should definitely check it out. There are some fantastic posts that come out over there that really make you think. Remy regularly features on my In Case You Missed It Posts because so much quality content comes out over there.


In about 200 words, here are Remy’s thoughts on Scheduling:

Unlike Karandi and Irina, I’m not one for scheduling. Winging it is how I often do things, so publishing posts right as, or a few hours after, I finish writing suits me just fine.

With that being said, it also (accurately) paints me as inconsistent since days can pass by with nary a peep from yours truly.

As time goes on, planning things out becomes more appealing as a strategy. Consistently pumping out quality content like the two aforementioned aniblogger superstars is definitely a good thing!

But even if I weren’t such a capricious content creator, I’d still make excuses and claim that the scheduling system sometimes swallow posts whole and make them disappear from the WordPress Reader. It’s happened a few times to other anibloggers and to me on occassion. As a result, the potential danger has left me shaking like a leaf in the wind.

But maybe you can be braver and more disciplined than me. If that’s the case (and it certainly isn’t very difficult at all), then I think following Karandi’s example and Irina’s path would be more ideal.

Be sure to check out Remy’s blog for more great content and just to have a chat with a great person. To start you off here is a link to a fairly amusing post that Remy put out:

For a more serious post, check out their appeal that we stop overusing the word ‘dark‘ to describe anime. It’s a great read.

Thanks again Remy. Later today, I am going to look back at what I learned in my second year of blogging, tomorrow morning I have my feature up where I set some goals for the third year, we still have Arithifis and Aladael’s contributions to come out over the weekend and then the anniversary week will draw to a close.

If you’ve missed any posts this week, or want to check out last year’s anniversary posts, use the category anniversary and you should find all of them.

Thanks for reading.

Anniversary Follower Feature: Remy Fool


As part of my 1 year anniversary, I’m running a series of posts on some of my amazing followers who have volunteered to be a part of the celebration. I often say this in my monthly reflections, but without the followers and the wonderful bloggers I’ve met since starting this blog, 100 Word Anime wouldn’t still be around so I really wanted to do something during this week to highlight the amazing people who have really made blogging a rewarding experience.

 In case you haven’t encountered Remy Fool’s very cool blog “The Lily Garden” you should definitely take some time to check it out. While there is a focus on Yuri, Remy covers a wide range of anime and manga and I really enjoy their episodic reviews even if I’m not following the show. Remy’s also been a fairly regular commenter on my blog and I’ve really enjoyed exchanging views on anime with them. I was very glad when Remy Fool decided to participate in my anniversary special.
However, what I really love are the occasional articles where Remy discusses or deconstructs an idea or issue. From March, one of my favourite posts was a discussion about Tropes and Deviations from the Audiences Expectations. If that post doesn’t grab your interest, Remy has suggested checking out this post: “Three Lines Seen in Anime and Manga Which Piss Me Off: Ramblings About Heteronormativity in Japanese Media“. Whichever, Remy Fool’s blog is well worth spending some time on if you aren’t already following it.
I asked participants to give me a quick 100 words about what they like about anime or my blog. Remy Fool said:

“The world of anime is broad. Despite only focusing on a few specific genres, I always feel overwhelmed over how many shows there are to watch and review. And yet Karandi James manages to keep a consistent blogging schedule while reviewing a large variety of anime series. Amazingly enough, she also manages to share entertaining weekly features including Top 5 lists, discussion pieces, and community round-up posts highlighting other bloggers’ content. Honestly, we all knew that it was only a matter of time before she would reach 1,000 followers. Thank you for being such an active member of the anime blogging community!”

Thanks Remy Fool for participating in the anniversary and thanks for your ongoing support for 100 Word Anime.
