Let’s be real here – there are a lot more interactions on Instagram. Instagram is more convenient to use and more people go on it. Research shows that people generally have shorter attention spans now.
I still see the value of blogs but newer platforms do have their pros as well. I don’t necessarily like that, but I’ll continue to use both Instagram and WordPress. As times change, we also need to adapt.
For those who genuinely enjoy visiting my blog, don’t worry. I’ve done this since I was 16 and I will continue to blog until I can no longer type. In my experience with WordPress, it used to be such a lively place. Y’all are all such lovely folks and I enjoy talking to you guys so much. It is a little sad to see that it is not the same as it once was (for reference, 60 people liking my posts and 30 comments on more ‘successful’ posts). Ultimately, I blog for myself. My blog is a space where I can express my thoughts, feelings, love of anime and cosplay. It is my diary and safe space.
WordPress reminded me on February 25 that it was my blogiversary! I’m a little late on posting this but thanks everyone for reading my blog~

Moya (Moyatori) from The Moyatorium goes to the same university as me. Today, we met for the first time at a café!
Moya was trying to figure out my real name so that’s why we are holding Death Note volumes. I am L and Moya is Light.
This is my first time meeting another blogger in real life. It’s fun!
Sometimes people ask me for blogging tips. Honestly, I have no idea.
I don’t really do reviews and I don’t really do tutorials either. To be frank, I’m not really contributing anything. All I do is stay at home and watch One Piece. Yet some people are still asking me for advice on blogging. I guess people are interested in my blog to learn more about what it means to have a simple and authentic life. I just take photos of things that are already occurring in my life and then post them to my blog. Everyone is different but for me, blogging does not take too much work or time. It comes naturally!

Representatives from companies often contact me and ask me to promote their companies on my blog. I will continue to turn them down. Why? It does not benefit me in any way.
I do not get paid. Why should I spend time out of my day to advertise for a company for free? I don’t mean to sound rude, but I would like it if companies would stop contacting me if they expect me to promote them for free.
Let’s say the company will, in turn, promote my blog. I don’t care about hits or being popular. Blogging is not my career. This is a diary lol.
I don’t feel like blogging or leaving the house. I don’t feel like watching One Piece either. I’m not particularly upset about anything. I just feel different and want to focus on different things right now. I’ll blog soon when I feel like it again.
