Going Back to My Roots

Not going to lie, I’ve wondered why I blog and do my other hobbies. I could just enjoy content without creating my own.

What value do I add to this world? I’m contributing to something, right..?

Do people like me? My content?

Does my content suck? LOL

These are the thoughts I’ve had. I can’t help it; I’ve been negative my entire life.

Pin on Anime Girls

I got a letter from my penpal and a portion of the letter stuck out to me. The gist of it was: pushing people towards things they would have otherwise overlooked, and that people have watched shows because of me. This is true. I’ve had many people tell me that they’ve watched shows because of my reviews. Examples: Bii Your Light + Appreciation Shout-Outs & Yesterday wo Utatte Episode 1 Impressions. There are many more instances…

Isn’t this a huge reason why I blog in the first place? To share the things I love so that more people can learn about them. In my Why I Like Anime So Much post, I shared that growing up, my classmates and I enjoyed different shows. I was alone in the sense that nobody knew what I was talking about.

Things are different now. Possibly the biggest reason why I blog is because of the blogging community and my blogger friends. Friends that, may not necessarily watch the stuff I like but are willing to read about my interests and be nonjudgmental.

Re-examining my motivations for blogging and other interests made me realize that blogging is a meaningful hobby for me. πŸ™‚

  1. I’m going through this right now, asking if what I create actually makes a significant impact on anyone (especially the self-care stuff) and whether if my input is necessary when there are so many people who probably do it better. So, this post was close to home lol. I appreciate your presence. You’ve got me interested in cosplay (although I’m insecure so I haven’t taken photos of anything). I’ve picked up some anime shows because of your musings that I probably wouldn’t have otherwise (Death Note is the big one I can think of off the top of my head). I also love your posts of food haha.

    • Thank you so much! I appreciate you telling me!! Sometimes we just don’t know so hearing it from others helps a great deal. Ooh, I look forward to seeing your cosplay photos. ^^ Thank you – it’s the same for me. I appreciate your presence as well. I wonder if putting out a poll on your blog and/or Twitter might help get a sense on what readers are most interested in? It might be interesting to know. I think that all your posts are valuable. ^^
