Reason For Blogging
My reason for starting a blog, I think I’ve mentioned it a few times on here but I’ll condense it. Firstly, I had played around with the idea of blogging for a few years, but chickened out multiple times because reasons. Eventually I got frustrated that I couldn’t write reviews the way I wanted to on various sites, and the fact I had too many places to try and write a review. So I made a blog to condense everything in one place.
My first piece of advice, is start focused and work towards expansion. My blog did the opposite, which is why my content is so scattered and I’ve had to re-work things to make it a bit better connected. What would have been better is to start with one subject, anime for example. After you establish a bit of a base with anime reviews and related commentaries, you can then expand into covering manga, live-actions, light-novels, etc.
Second piece of advice, play with a blogging schedule and see what works best for you and then stick with it. Blogging is a hobby for most of us first and foremost. However like any hobby you do need to invest some time into it for you to get results. The best way to get results is to have a schedule. It can be that you post one mega post once every two months, or that you post mini posts every day; play with scheduling and decide on one. It’ll help you keep committed to blogging in some capacity.
I’m only going to tag a few people here because I’d love to see their advice mostly if they haven’t done this by now. So Weeb Revues, Lita Kino, and Jenn, you guys are up! With that, I’ll see you guys next post!
