Spam past off as Rants
Had this drafted a few days back. Possibly Saturday… Duh!?
And decided to left it as is and not edit it to reflect the time of posting cause I got some ideas from commenting on other blogs which kind of puts certain things into perspective.
Ok, it’s Saturday night and I’m stuck at home… Time to Rant!
Recently, I have come to conclude and accept the fact that Anime3r will never be a high traffic blog.
Why so? Easy…
First off is the way I watch and blog about animes. I always watch animes only after I have gotten hold of the entire series. Maybe I’ll start one if they have more than 30 episodes or so. But before a series ends or if it is less than 30 eps, the most I would do is browse through an episode, make sure the quality is good before chucking it back into my On-going folder. So you can already count the ep-to-ep crowd of the blogosphere out of my traffic count. However, I still do check out episodic reviews around other blogs every now and then to see how a series is going, and also to pick up some good grammar and another point appears.
Having not watched new releases, I have no comments and won’t be able to contribute constructively. I sure as hell won’t post a comment not knowing what I’m talking about. And thus out the window goes the crowd who click on comment links.
And of course, by the time I do indeed post up a review about an anime. It would be so late that all the hype or potential for interest had been lost. Imagine me doing a review of K-On a month from now. Wouldn’t exactly stir your interest now would it.
Next on the list are my blogging skills. I have absolutely no talent when it comes to writing intellectual posts or thought provoking articles. I could try… but I’d probably suck. The skill I do have, but still suck at, is whine. In fact, this post has been about me whining… all the way.
I also have this shitty habit of looking through older posts instead of the new ones. So even if I do comment, it is in a secluded spot where nobody sees except for the author. I just have a fondness for the slightly antique feel an old post brings about. If there were any irritating forum member who always revives old threads with the nickname “blur” or anything similar, that would be me. :p
Combine all the previous points and there isn’t much to debate about whether how Anime3r will fare further down the blogging route. Traffic will never hit top stats. Instead, I’m more than happy with readers who found something interesting at Anime3r and post comments whether it be constructive insults or appreciation or anything. Cause that lets me know you bothered enough to spend some bandwidth and time on Anime3r.
And In case you didn’t notice, Yeah… I’m whining about the low traffic.
A little premonition on the blog. Recently got an idea for a logo, which I think will turn out great and so will be sticking to it for a while. Will change top banner as soon as it’s out!
Thanks for listening to my rant of the week…
