Today, I Am the Sunshine Blogger

sunshine blogger award cover

I never really associated myself with sunshine, but someone sees me as a suitable ray of vitamin D replenishment. I have never been so honored. Thank you very much to Irina for the tag in her recent Sunshine Blogger post. Without her, I would probably remain as the moon or something. I’m not really sure how to open this post.

The Oh So Fun Blog Update

Hello, everyone. I hope you all are doing well considering the circumstances of the world.

I am writing this update to inform everyone that my output will be (and has been, frankly) slowing down tremendously in the coming days/weeks/months/etc. I have recently gotten my part-time job back, and my work with KeenGamer has increased due to larger responsibilities and number of writers sending in articles. As such, I will not have the same amount of time to dedicate to writing articles for the blog.

This is not a death sentence, nor is it the beginning of the end. I am simply too preoccupied with adjusting to a busier lifestyle, combined with a relative lack of motivation to write about anything when my interest in games is at a high point. As these things tend to go, I will probably find myself re-invigorated with other subjects in due time, and my desire to write will follow.

With that said, I’m unsure of when I will write again for the blog and what I will write about. All I can ensure is that it will be something that I will want to write on. Maybe football; haven’t done much on that recently.

Thank you for your time. Have a great day.

I’m Going to Watch a Lot of Anime in December (of 2019)

I adore Winter. I love the quiet ambience as snow accumulates onto the ground. The stillness of the air and the growing desire to cozy oneself in warmed isolation away from the frozen outdoors, as if to not disturb its careful process. Some may look at the cover gif and see some Gothic picture in waiting, but to me, it’s almost spiritual in its beauty. October is Halloween, November is Thanksgiving, and December is Christmas—white, frosty, cheery Christmas vibes all the way through.

Since the demise of my cherished Summer of Anime block, I’ve done nothing of a similar vein for the anime medium since. This year, that will be different. I’ve decided that I’m going to be watching anime—a lot of it—throughout the month of December. Why? Because December is magical and so is anime. And I want to.

Writer’s Block Takes Hold – An Update

onhghy5

Five days after I acknowledged that I’ve become somewhat disheartened with the quality of my recent posts (a few have been good, a few others not so much), I’ve come to conclude that some days I’m literally forcing things out prematurely. This whole “publish things daily’ was a great challenge for some time, but in my current juncture of life, my motivation has dulled to the preference of other activities. Basically, I’ve run out of solid ideas that I want to write, instead opting to write for the sake of it, which is no bueno. Continue reading “Writer’s Block Takes Hold – An Update”

Coming to Terms with Your Blogging Identity

Angry Rabbit

There are times when my writing does not come up to the standards that I set for myself as a competitive perfectionist. The most recent example of this was my last article, detailing my thoughts on the latest Star Wars: Episode IX trailer. In it, much was said about how big corporations are run by Satan and that the existence of anything for profit is bereft of the creative soul. Upon publishing, I immediately looked back on it and thought, “Man, how often have I said all this before?”

Many times. Such is the identity I have established for myself the past six years. Continue reading “Coming to Terms with Your Blogging Identity”

Asserting My Writing Efficiency – A Poorly-Veiled Blog Update

tenor

To those who have been visiting the blog on a semi-regular basis, you may have noticed that it’s seen some changes in the past couple weeks. The layout has changed to feel more modern (which means more bold) and the content has become more varied in type, both from a topical standpoint and a medium standpoint. I’ve finally found a groove in which this blog can finally be about a place for visual media (and football) and not just anime, which is something I’m immensely fond of. On top of that, the content has been rolling in at a rate unheard of for this blog outside of my annual March of the Movies block (the next of which is coming soon). I wanted to take the time to address these sudden changes. Continue reading “Asserting My Writing Efficiency – A Poorly-Veiled Blog Update”

A Small and Inconsequential Blog Update

kiss him not me 2

Just a quick update to detail why posts from my blog have been coming at a somewhat slow pace for the last two months or so. I am currently back in school finishing my Bachelor’s in English and some of the time I spend mentally is either directly or semi-directly attributed to bettering/preparing myself for classes and assignments. Henceforth, the output of my blog may be a little on the slow side; my normal schedule is every two, sometimes three days, but lately it’s been anywhere from three to five days. I think I’m gonna try and keep it within the once-every-four-days category or quicker. So expect my blog to continue, though at a slower rate.

That said, thank you all for the continued support and I’ll be back either tomorrow or Thursday with a post years in the making. Enjoy your time-of-day!
