The End Of Book Blogging

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)
·         Anime/Manga
·         Japanese culture
·         My personal life
·         Movies
·         Music
·         AMBW
·         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.  ^^;

This has nothing to do with this entry, but I find it funny. Haha.


  1. Glad you'll still be blogging. Write about what is best for you. Never force yourself, blogging is already free. You don't need free stress, just stress fee fun.

    1. Thank you! I agree! I believe that everyone should have that mentality. Thank you for sticking around as a reader and commenting when you can. :)

  2. Looking forward to reading about all your new ideas!

    1. Thank you very much! I'll be sure to keep you updated. And thank you for commenting. :)
