Six Month Anniversary (and more random pictures)
It’s been getting more and more difficult to think of what to write for these milestone posts. I remember feal87 saying that once I’m six months old, I’m past the zone where new blogs stop updating prematurely. At the time, six months felt like a long way away. Well now that I’m here, the question remains as to how I still feel about blogging. The truth is that I think it’s gotten much more interesting as I’ve started talking to other bloggers. I wonder if part of the reason some people have trouble starting up blogs is because they can’t imagine anyone who would read their posts, because as I’ve gotten closer to people through Skype and the SCCSAV, it has been easier to write what I think.
Of course the other reason I can see myself still blogging is that there’s still so much to talk about. This should be the third post I’ve put out in the last three days, and I’ve still got things I’m working on. At some point soon, I really need to talk about Negima‘s sudden departure, and when the time comes I’ll be writing the Finale posts for both it and Bokura ga Ita. I’m also preparing a post for Nopy’s Guide to Anime, and I should have that finished as soon as I can remember exactly what I wanted to say. And this is before I count the normal chapter posts, which I’ve got a few ideas for even as we speak
I’m also still working on my review of The World God Only Knows. It’s fully written right now, and I plan to have it out within a week. After that it will most likely be Fairy Tail, since I’ve promised that one to a few people and I have quite a few things to say about it.
Something I should also mention is that on Saturday, I’ll be going on a small trip for school-related reasons. It should last a few days, and I’m not completely certain how busy I’ll be during that time. It’s entirely possible that my blogging schedule will be exactly the same, but it’s just as possible that I won’t be able to get online for that period of time. So if I suddenly disappear for about a week, you can blame it on my school.
I suppose that’s all I have to say. I was never the sort of person who was good at talking about myself. This may be why I have so much trouble asking about people’s blogrolls. I guess that’s two things I should work on in the next few months: time management and self confidence. Well it’s been a good time here, and I hope you’ll all still be reading and blogging six months from now. I guess I’ll just leave off with some random pictures from the series I’m reading.

Oh Squid Girl.
Also, happy half-a-versary.
Sometimes you have to wonder if the translators do it on purpose.
Is that a fan translation or has Squid Girl been licensed yet as a manga?
It’s the fan translation. I doubt the manga will get licensed for a while.
Oh good. I hope they do what the fansubs and actual dub did and replace the de-geso with squid based puns.
Silly dialogue that makes sense in English? Squid yeah!
Congratulation Yerocha, you’re now officially an old man…:D
Nooooo! I like being young too much!
Seriously though, thanks. It means a lot to me.
That Chopper scene never fails to make me laugh.
Six months eh? But I feel like I’ve been reading your blog for longer than that. Good job, Yerocha. Looking forward to whatever posts you planned for us. They’re always good read and fun to watch =)
I know, it feels like I’ve been blogging for longer than that. It’s been really good having you reading and commenting, too.
6 months. that’s nice. good luck on the rest of the year.
Thanks, I hope it will be good too.
Congratulation.I thought your blog is like a year old or something. Keep going.
So feal was right! People do think I’m old! Of course I’m still flattered.
Six months is an impressive accomplishment. For those with the trouble to start up their own site, I think it may boil down to determination and motivation itself, but more than likely, you are correct on readers. It all comes back to that in general for anyone I suppose.
Well, anyway congrats.
I can see what you’re saying. Determination was always what kept me back before I started the blog up, so I know how frustrating it can be to not have it.
And thanks a lot. It’s been fun having you guys here.
Happy sixth monthsary! I’m glad that you’re enjoying blogging. I’m also not good talking about myself but knowing other bloggers and SCCSAV help me loosen my guard.
Btw, what’s the name of that manga that has that guy in ballet gown, it looks funny? I also saw Girl Friends, so I guess we can get to read your review very soon.
Thanks. Its interesting to hear all the different ways to say Six Month Anniversary.
The guy in the ballet gown is Shu from Princess Jellyfish (Kuragehime). It’s that series that aired on noitaminA a while back.
Girl Friends won’t be too soon, but I’ll definitely be putting it on my schedule, since it’s not a good idea to wait on series that have already concluded. The main obstacle is that I don’t know a lot about yuri manga outside of this series, so I would probably need help from someone who knows more about it. 🙂 Not for a little while, though.
Thanks a lot.
