dead blog

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.

Life of a Blogger

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!

I wasn’t going to blog today but…

It happens to be my 3 year anniversary of blogging! My friends convinced me to write this… 🙂

THANK YOU to everyone for all the love and encouraging words. I love you all.

Ahh I’ve had a long week filled with exams and assignments! I’m so tired… This is a much needed face mask I picked up at school. The Face Shop was handing these out for free. ^_^

I love flowers.

(I’ll probably watch One Piece after this.)

See you until next time!

My Workspace

🍓 What’s up? 🍓

I’ll be talking about a little bit about my workspace and I’m going to explain my creative process. By “workspace” I am referring to my method of blogging because I need a computer and I need to be able to take some time to express myself in a way that tells you a little about who I am.

I want my workspace to be… simple. I just need a computer (or laptop) and a drink. The manga book in the picture has been put away as I write this now.

One of my sources of inspiration is from manga.

I always need to listen to songs when I am blogging.

Sometimes I get inspiration from other blogs. If I see someone else’s photo and it is something that is typical in my own life, I try to take a photo because maybe I had never thought about blogging about it before. All of my other posts are 100% my idea.
