Achievement Unlocked – 100 CommentsPosted: May 21, 2011
NOTE: Due to studying for finals and playing Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2, I’m on hiatus for about a week. I’ll be posting again starting May 26.
Geez, it’s only been around four months since I started blogging (for real), and I’ve already reached 100 comments. Never did I dream of getting this many comments this quickly. It still feels like I just started blogging yesterday.
– 3 (trackback links)
– 2 (Catherine Meyer’s comment and my response don’t count because my current theory is that she’s some kind of spambot 2.0)
/ 2 (I respond to all comments)
In case that’s hard to read, the equation is: (205 – 3 – 2) / 2 = 100.
I suppose as is standard with these kinds of milestones, I should write about myself and/or the blog. But first, I have a few thanks/shout-outs to give.
Glo was the first person to comment on my blog, so he’s the first to be thanked/mentioned. Actually, he wasn’t technically the first, some spambot commented first. That doesn’t count, obviously. He’s also a cool, funny dude who happens to have similar tastes as my own. It’s nice to have someone out there who loves Shakugan no Shana as much as I do.
I also want to thank Glo for putting up with my essay-sized comments on his posts. I seriously need to learn how to compress what I say.
I’d like to thank TRazor for his always kind, yet critical eye. Back when I wrote my rage post about the comments UTW got for dropping Steins;Gate, he was the first and only one to admonish me for my behavior. However, I didn’t hate him for saying so, and apparently he didn’t hate me for writing the post, because we still get along just fine.
Though we may not agree all the time (Clannad is cancer in anime form), I always really enjoy our discussions.
Oh my balls, Nadja, that commenting spree you went on that one day was insane. I believe you made about 6 or 7 comments in one go? That was crazy, and I love you for it. It seems like you always have something to say, which I respect a lot. I just wish I could return the favor, but I hardly find any time to write posts of my own let alone comment on other people’s posts.
After I finish writing this, I’ll go comment on a couple of your posts before getting back to Mass Effect.
To any other commenters who didn’t make the list, just know that I do appreciate each and every comment I get.
It always sucks when a post gets a lot of views, but hardly anyone comments. How am I supposed to know what people thought of the post? Did they like it? Hate it? Agree with me? Disagree with me? Want me to write more of those kinds of posts? Never write a post like that again? It just turns into a guessing game on my part.
Anyways, I guess I should write about the blog itself and its future.
As of now, I see no end in site (unintentional pun, awwww yeah) for my blogging. My Preview/Review format is very nice compared to when I tried doing episodics. School might sometimes get in the way, but I usually find time to write a post eventually. I did have to essentially give up gaming to blog, but now I’m working on finding time for that too.
There’s a chance I might be getting a job in the near future if everything goes well. If I do, my blogging may become much slower, or the posts could become shorter. However, I have absolutely no intention of abandoning this. It’s a fun hobby, and writing these posts helps my writing and analytical skills.
I might change the theme for the blog soon. I’ve been using this one for a while, and I think it’s time for a new look. Also, I might be getting myself a banner in the future if a friend is willing to make one for me. I can’t give any definite time on that coming to fruition, though.
Looking back on these past four months, I have to say, I’ve almost completely dropped my humor from my writing. As much as I like being funny, I also like being professional. I think I’ll try and add more humor to future posts. I’m not saying I’m a professional comedian or anything, but I’m certainly not as dull as some of my posts make me seem.
Other than that, I’m proud of my work so far, but I’ll continue to try to improve this blog as much as I can. I hope you guys continue to enjoy reading my posts as much I enjoy writing them.
P.S. It seems as though most of my hits are just people using Google to find a single picture of Dawn I used in my Pokémon: Best Wishes! preview.
As sad as this may be, someone actually managed to find my site by googling “desu fuck” once. I don’t want to know what they were trying to find.
