I decided to look at the search terms that have led people to my blog.
1.Joker Xue – Actor/Yan Yuan 演員
This one was popular. I did, in fact, write about my interpretation of the song. Click here for the post.
2. Joker Xue – Animal World
I’ve also interpreted Joker’s Animal World song. Click here for the post.
3. Joker Xue – Puppet & 4. Joker Xue – What Do You Want Me To Do
I’ve never interpreted these songs… Maybe I’ll write something so that OP won’t be disappointed!
5. What is the point of wearing a vest?
When I was 16, I took pictures of myself wearing a vest. The post has now been deleted.*** I think I wrote something like, “Some people think that vests are pointless. I don’t care about that. I wear jean vests because I like the way they look.”
*7 years later* Some vests do provide warmth. Sometimes your arms are not cold but your stomach is. I was watching Love O2O the other day. Wei Wei’s vest provides practically no warmth but I think her jean vest looks nice.
6. What episode was Den Den Mushi afraid of Buggy?
Episode 482 (One Piece). Technically, the Den Den Mushi was afraid of the other pirates but felt touched by Buggy.
There’s a lot more search terms so maybe I’ll do another post like this in the future.
I think I will keep blogging until I can no longer type (wrote about this in my post, dead blog). I’m quite certain that my blog has already passed its prime but if my motivation for blogging was weak, I would have stopped a long time ago. 🙂
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.
If you’re an anime blogger, you probably know Moya from her blog, The Moyatorium. If you’ve read a certain older blog post of mine, you would know that I met her for the first time in February of this year. I bumped into her on the bus a while back, so this is technically our third time meeting!
We went to Hachibei, a Japanese restaurant my Psych professor told me about. I ordered katsudon (pork cutlet) and Moya ordered the tofu hamburger.
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!
