Aorii asked a relatively interesting question:
Question for the anibloggers, especially the episodic ones: what drives you to blog? if there’s one style one can identify your blog by (especially from the others), what would it be? what made you choose that style of blogging?
While I mostly write about what I usually watch, I only write my thoughts on what I seen in the episode and analyze parts of the episodes I find particularly interesting. I don’t write a full synopsis or dump a lot of screenshots because I feel it’s pointless and I assume most people will already watched it, so I don’t see a point. For editorials, I get my ideas from reading other anime blogs or if something comes up that drives me to write a post… So basically, I take a mixed approach.
For me, I choose to blog about anime for various reasons. First reason is to practice my writing since it’s not the greatest and by writing posts, I can improve on it as times go on. The second reason is to share my passion and thoughts about Anime as a whole. Third and last reason, is the social factor. Sharing your thoughts allows for discussion. In a way, anime blogging has allowed me to network with other bloggers and I have become more open.
From this, I am already thinking about writing an editorial on the social aspects of watching anime and anime blogging with my personal experiences in the coming weeks… It’s something to think about as it’s something important to the Anime Fandom in general.
Of course, there are many answers to this question that are rather interesting, so take a look!
