Have you ever stared at the computer screen with your mind completely blank? I have…and it’s currently happening. I can discuss many topics on my blog. Yet, at times, it’s difficult for me to create an entry worth reading. Sometimes, I censor myself. Not in a way that I would say anything bad, but what I mean by “censor” is that I don’t really say what I want to. I do write for myself, but I also write for my readers (regardless if you are a silent reader or not.)
In the beginning, I didn’t know what type of blogger I wanted to be. Should I blog about books? Anime? Manga? Music? Movies? Fashion? Or should I do reviews? I didn’t really know. I tried blogging about all of those subjects. I even had made a fashion blog, anime/manga reviewing blog and an author’s blog. I deleted the fashion blog and made my anime/manga and author’s blog private. I eventually decided to stick with talking about books on this blog because I noticed the book blogging community was quite large. I figured that I could meet friends, gather new readers, followers, and bond over books.
The only thing about this was that, although I do like books, blogging about them isn’t for me. Not only that, it’s very hard for me to comment on other people’s blog. I’m not saying that I don’t at all, because I do, but it’s extremely rare. I don’t really mind it if people don’t comment my blog (I’ll admit, in the beginning I did because I wanted a lot of people to notice my blog), but if people do take their time to comment it does make me happy. From now on, I think it’s best if I stick with writing whatever I want, which makes me a lifestyle blogger.
Topics you may see on this blog include the following:
· Books (sometimes, not always)
· Japanese culture
· My personal life
· Video Games
· Reviews on anything that is listed above
The choices are endless. I wanted to let everyone know that from now on, I won’t blog much about books. The reason why, is because I always felt that I was forcing myself to be a part of a community that I’m not very active in. If you have noticed, I rarely talk about my novel as much and when I do it’s very brief and vague. It’s not intentionally, it’s just that I feel more comfortable not talking about it as much. As a writer, especially a self-published writer, it is good to create a buzz, but I don’t like talking about my novel during its W.I.P process. When I do talk about my novella, it will be when it’s completed and ready to be submitted to a publisher.
Anyhow, for those people that is currently reading this, thank you for sticking around. I will continue to be a blogger, despite my constant late updates. ^^;
