Update: Moving, Site Anniversary, and Odds & Ends

Hello Everybody!

I hope you are all having an excellent day. There’s been a lot going on lately so I wanted to let you guys know what was going on in case you missed it. To keep a bit more up to date with me consider following me on Twitter or over at Facebook (Twitter is a bit more active), otherwise, let’s get on with the news.

School Info

I just finished moving back to my University’s campus for my final year of school! I’ll be completing my marketing degree as well as continuing to work for the University and my own company. This means for the site that I’ll be a bit busy, but nothing too crazy (I hope!). Each term will be a light 12-14 credits but I must pass every class the first go. It’s do or die time, if I fail even one class I won’t graduate T.T which is obviously bad.

As for the work angle, I don’t anticipate this proving to be an issue for either school or the site. I’ll keep you guys up to date on any changes but please understand that there is a chance I may have to take breaks from the site throughout the year. I currently have no plans to do this, but plans often end up changing. For now though, all seems to be moving rather well.

Anniversary!

This is what I’m really excited to talk about. As of yesterday, the site turned 1 year old! Exciting right? Can you believe I’ve been doing this for a whole year already? As a result, we have over 100 reviews and discussion pieces on the site between everybody who has ever worked here. That’s incredible!

It all started with my very first review of Last Exile. From there, we picked up (and lost) a few friends along the way. Jacob is probably who you all know best for his film reviews. He’s an aspiring film critic and his writing has really improved since he started doing stuff here. Consider giving his work a look. Of course there were some bumps along the way…

There were two times where I promised an article series and fell through on them. It really sucked, but at the end of the day, I learned my lesson and have since been on the up and up. In fact, I just recently launched a new series, Anime ABC’s. So far that has been very successful and I’m hard at work on it so we can keep it going.

Lastly, as we move forward into this new year, I hope the site can continue to grow and interact with all kind of interesting people. I have a buddy who is interested in doing some collaborative pieces and Dana is set to make a reappearance on the site. There is even more stuff planned for the future so I hope you’ll all stick with me and continue to make the community here awesome!

Quick Update on Content

Briefly wanted to mention that I’m currently rewatching Anohana. I just got settled at my place so haven’t had time before today to work on any new articles or watch the show. Should have it watched by the end of the week and a review for it late next week or so. A for other content, I’m playing that by ear, but I’ll likely get some things out between then.

That’s it for today folks.
