It’s been a long time hasn’t it?
Hey everyone it’s Deven. This is a very special post here on AnimeThief. This is my one year anniversary. Well technically my anniversary was April 1st but I had a lot of school stuff to deal with so I couldn’t make the post.
Hmm how did AnimeThief start? Good question. I had already been a blogger at my other and first blog, Thief Fantasy and other Mystical Happenings. However it was suckish. I really felt unfulfilled. I felt like I was writing these posts because I had to not because I wanted to. It felt like a job and not something I was doing because I enjoyed it.
Then my friend SkyCorps told me that he was starting an anime blog. And that lit a fire right there. I had already loved anime since I was a little kid and writing about it would have been a dream come true.
My first review that I did made myself(The first few reviews I posted were borrowed from SkyCorps) was my review of Date A Live 2 Episode 4 .
Sorry it isn’t up to where my standards are for now. I don’t think I’ll go back and fix them. I prefer to keep moving forward.
So I was wrote this post while I was sitting around at my house, trying to find some reason to get out of the bed everyday. I didn’t have any reason to do anything. My high school diploma was tied up with things that I can’t talk about. I was wondering what was the point to anything and I was feeling that writing Thief Fantasy and Other Mystical Happenings out of a sense of duty rather than doing it because I enjoyed it.
Then SkyCorps announced that he was going to make his own anime blog and that gave me an idea. Like I said above, anime was something that I liked.
As the season when on I reviewed, Date A Live, Akuma no Riddle, Fairy Tail 2nd Series, Rail Wars, Trinity Seven, Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works, Koufuku Graffiti and Isuca with no holding back and I’ll keep going.
Now looking at things as they are now, I’m happy. I’m shocked by the fact that as of April 6th I have nearly 49,262 views in little less than a year, over 210 posts, and a lot of friends that I’ve made while blogging. It’s great that I have made it so far in only one year.
So now that I’ve come this far, what’s next? I’m thinking of adding some writers to the blog. I’d like the sense of community that I have with AnimeCorps and I want something like that with me as the leader. I know that would be a really big responsibility but I think that I can handle it.
I couldn’t make this far without your support and I thank you for that. I hope that you’ll continue to look around at AnimeThief in the future.
Thanks again and Later Days!
