Being an aniblogger can be one of the most fulfilling yet frustrating endeavours a fan can experience. Here are some dirty little confessions I’m sure anibloggers could relate to.
→Me immediately after creating an aniblog: I have no idea what I’ve gotten myself into.
Me now: I still have no idea what I’ve gotten myself into.
→What is sleep?
→Keep your hands off of my computer or I’ll kill you.
→I don’t know what to write. Damn you, writer’s block!
→This is a disaster. I don’t have any desire to watch anime right now. Damn you, anime burn-out!
→Damn, (Blogger A)! He beat me in writing a post about this anime topic. I should have written it before him! Hmph. Whatever. I’ll just write something better and show everyone that mine is more informative and interesting. First, let’s look at all his post’s weaknesses and make sure to address all those in mine. Mwahahaha!!!
→Hot Guy A on the street: Hey. (a few minutes later) So what do you do?
Me: I’m an anime blogger.
Hot Guy A: Anime? Like cartoons? You blog about cartoons?! Whoa, really?
Hot Guy A: Cartoons, eh. I used to watch Tom and Jerry—
Me: I lied. I’m actually an ex-convict with a tendency of violent behaviour when annoyed.
Hot Guy A: Ahaha! That’s a funny one.
Me: (straight face) I’m feeling just a tad bit annoyed now. I wonder why.
Hot Guy A: …I see. Okay, then. Bye! (runs away)
→Hot Guy B on the street: Hey. (a few minutes later) So what do you do?
Me: I’m an anime blogger.
Hot Guy B: Really? Cool. Give me your blog address. (a few seconds later) Really? You’re the blogger of this site? Wow. I often use your anime recommendations to find something good to watch.
Me: (inner goddess dancing while mentally singing) Don’t stop us now…the moment of truth…We were born to make HISTORY!
Hot Guy B: Wanna go somewhere and eat?
Me: Of course! I know just the place. Let’s go to J-Town!
→WTF?!! How can this aniblogger have more likes, comments, and followers than me?!! He writes crap! Nothing but CRAP!!!
→Yuri!!! on ICE is crap, she says? Who the fuck does this bitch think she is?!! Let me share her link to my fellow Icers and let’s see if she’s not roasted alive after this.
→Ugh. Why do humans need sleep, anyway?
→She’s totally copying how I write my posts. She totally does. The nerve! On second thought…maybe I should be flattered? Hmmm. (fired up) I should work harder so she wouldn’t overshadow me. I’m gonna prove that I’m the original and she’s nothing but a second-rate, trying hard, copycat!
→How dare you steal my post, you son of a bitch!!! Don’t think you can get away with this!
→What a prick. His opinion is totally ridiculous. How dare he say I’m mistaken?! Just because he’s so polite doesn’t mean that I’ll be agreeable. Just you see. I’m gonna give him a piece of my mind.
Reply to comment: Thank you very much. I appreciate such an insightful comment. I always welcome alternative points of view in this blog. Looking forward to hearing more from you.
Translation: Your comment is the most idiotic thing I have ever read about this topic. Go shove this crap of a comment up your stinky ass, dickhead! Like hell I’m gonna agree with a dunderhead like you. Piss me off again and I’ll write your ridiculous username on my Death Note. Jerk.
→Does she think I’m stupid that I don’t know she’s been sending me and my blogger friends that exact same e-mail? Personalize mine or I’ll ignore, and tell the others to do the same. Such insolence.
→What’s up with this shameless bastard? Asking me to do things for him for free? Am I his personal free labour? No offer to do something for me in return? No thank you…fine, I’ll decline nicely and say that I’m busy at the moment.
→Be nice or the fact that you’re an asshole will spread like wildfire to my fellow anibloggers before you can even say hello to any of them.
→Don’t underestimate anibloggers. We have resources and contacts you wouldn’t even imagine.
→Don’t overestimate anibloggers. Most of us are just regular people doing regular people stuff living our regular people lives.
→I can’t do this anymore. I’m so exhausted. I haven’t slept in, like, forever! I’m so burned out. Fuck anime blogging. I quit!
