Here’s my story; The blogger’s story award

I’d like to thank Matt903 for nominating me for the bloggers story award. I very much appreciate it :). Thank you very much Matt. Just like Matt, I decided to use a funny gif from Bleach, instead of the logo. Since I can’t really find the logo for it xDD.

Direction:

  • Thank the person who nominated you
  • Showcase the award picture
  • Answer the questions
  • Nominate 3+ bloggers and include a link to their blog

Questions:

  1. A) What is your blog’s name? B) Why did you name it that?
  2. How long have you been blogging?
  3. How many followers do you have?
  4. Who was your first follower?
  5. What got you into blogging?
  6. What is your favorite part about blogging?
  7. If you could improve anything at all about WordPress/blogging, what would it be?
  8. Why do you continue to blog?

Answers:

  1. A) In the Cubby Hole  B) The word ‘pigeon hole’ came in to my mind, one night. But I thought it wasn’t catchy enough, so I used a thesaurus to find an alternative word for it. And the word cubbyhole was there. So I took it xDD.
  2. Technically I have been blogging since 2009 (however did nothing for a very long time), bounced around on other blogging sites. However I didn’t start blogging properly till about late 2012 early 2013 on word press. This is the short version of it.
  3. 78 followers. THANK YOU VERY MUCH, YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME 😀.
  4. A toss up between Takuto from Anime Cafe or The Otaku Judge. Can’t remember exactly xDD. Those guys are awesome, I hope they and you the readers go strength to strength on your blogs, whatever it may be.
  5. In hindsight, it was on a whim at first. Had absolutely no idea what to write about. Hence why I didn’t blog for a very long time on this site. Although I did bounce around several ideas on other sites. None of them lasted though. So I settled on ani-blogging and I feel very comfortable. The other thing is, I used to write fantasy stories, but that stopped. So blogging is a natural progression for it. Plus I get to air my views on anime. I’m slowly expanding on to video games.
  6. Meeting new people. And reading their opinions on anime. It is very interesting to discuss what they liked / disliked about a certain anime.
  7. My reviews. Looking at it critically; the reviews don’t have a flow to them. It feels robotic, a stop-start if you will – using a guide is good, but come on Rocco, don’t make it so obvious xDD. Plus I don’t use images enough, and my reviews tend to be on the passive / neutral side – is that a good thing?. Also pretty lengthy. Currently I’m looking as to how I can make my reviews flow better, whilst cutting down on the word count.
  8. I’m taking a leaf out of Matt’ book here. And will say the same reason as he does. I like to write about my hobbies, interests and making new friends. All the while discussing about said hobbies. Nothing beats reading a new reader / blogger commenting on your blog. With the potential to be a new blogger friend.

Nominees:

  1. Rose Regina
  2. Tessa
  3. Sushime
  4. Shannroshoujo
  5. Anyone that reads this

And there you have it. My little story told summed up in 8 questions. Thanks for reading and once again thanks to Matt for nominating me. Leave a comment down below, to air  your story. Catch ya next time peeps ;).
