I have been posting on this blog every day for over 5 years now. Pretty impressive right?? Huh, huh!!! Ok, it’s no great accomplishment but it was something that kept me grounded and I was a bit proud of my perseverance.
I’m sure long-time readers have noticed that I have gone on an extended reposting break. I’ve been using my extensive archives to give me a little vacation from writing and formatting posts. Not gonna lie, it’s been a welcome break.
You see, I’ve been really struggling to find balance lately. My home life is in a bit of an upheaval. I find myself at a Crossroads with regard to my job. I’ve put a great deal of time and effort into my professional life and this uncertainty is unusually stressful for me. It’s not all bad but I think I’m going to have to make some choices with no right answer and until I do, the prospect is draining my focus.
It’s also a bit exhausting. I’m sure I have been a pain to be around these past few weeks. Thankfully I have amazing friends.
On that note, I have also had some changes in my personal life that mean I have a bit less time for anime. Not no time for anime mind you, it’s a medium I really love, and I will always make time for it. However, right now, it’s not my priority which means that I also have less to write about.
So what does this mean for my blog? For you dear readers, I hope it won’t change much at all really.
I have been kicking around the idea of cutting down on my posting schedule for a while now. And I think it’s time I experiment with it a little. I haven’t actually landed on a clear plan yet so for the next few months I will be trying a few things out.
First of all, I’m not going to double up on posts anymore. I currently post two episode reviews each Saturday and Sunday. And that’s too much. Episode reviews are not that difficult, I might still do 4 shows next season, especially if I can rope someone into doing collaborations with me once again. Something I am fully intending to do.
Next season is the return of Demon Slayer and if Crow will have me I would love to continue our collab on that…As well as Dr. Stone (cough cough). I’m really excited about those shows you guys. Like way more excited than I thought I would be when I started writing this post. That’s how much of an otaku I am! I have also been eyeing Jigokuraku. Mappa’s instincts have been pretty good lately and I’m intrigued by what they will do next. The premise of Oshi no Ko caught my eye, I enjoyed the Mashle manga so the anime is intriguing, I have been literally waiting for Insomnia to be adapted for over a year, Ranking of Kings season 2 is something I can’t miss and My Home Hero is likely to be a unique and intense experience. What I’m saying is that once again it’s going to be a great season of anime and I want to be there for it. Just one review a day is all.
So episode reviews will be once a day. As for the rest, I’ll stagger it every other day instead of every day. I’m not sure what this will mean for my schedule overall as it’s going to depend on how many shows I end up deciding to review seasonally but I’ll still do full show reviews whenever I finish anything and at least one general essay/rambling post about nothing a week.
I figure I’ll try this out for a while and see how it goes. Scale up and down from there.
I hope you guys won’t mind the change too much and I can still get to chat with you in the comments cause that’s the MOST fun!
And that’s all I have for today. Starting tomorrow, I’ll try to find some balance with you guys.
