So, this post will be a little different than normal. I’ve been brainstorming some ideas on what else to include and incorporate into my blog so that I have a bit more meat and variety as to what I post and discuss. I have a lot of fun writing the posts that I do, but I want to have a healthy mix of topics/ideas, and there are some I’ve been dying to try out. So, in this post, I’ll be very quickly discussing what new segments I’ll be introducing within the month of November and hoping to get your thoughts on them. Some may work out great and some not so much, so I would appreciate all of the feedback I can get when the time comes. I’m not expecting all of these to become permanent segments, but if they do, then cool! If not, that’s totally fine, too.
Character Spotlight: I will pick one to two characters a month whose birthday is that very month and will give a brief “profile” for them, including some fun facts, random information, and perhaps my favorite moment of theirs. This will serve as a way to make sure some characters get the love and/or recognition they deserve. Perhaps some people will get intrigued enough to check out their show/manga. Who knows! A majority, if not all, will also be characters that I personally liked/enjoyed, so this will just be my way of showcasing them.
Obsession/Rant Corner: This one I’m going back and forth with. I don’t know if it should be a place where I just discuss/show what I’m currently obsessed with OR if it should be a place for me to rant about anime/manga related topics OR both. If it’s the former, I’ll probably just include a lot of pictures/screenshots and say a few things here and there (i.e. If I’m temporarily obsessed with a character or show, expect a lot of pictures). I’m leaning more toward the obsession rather than the rant because I technically already use my reviews/commentary as a way to rant about things I’m watching/reading, so that option may be a bit repetitive…
Recommendation Room: This should be obvious. I’ll recommend one anime and one manga/manhwa a month. There will be a genre picked and I will choose an anime and a manga/manhwa that fall under that genre and essentially just recommend it to everybody. This is a two-way street, too, so if anyone wants to recommend anything for said genre, they are more than welcome to comment and help out.
Status: This might be kind of dumb, but I may have a section where I list what I’m currently watching/reading and then what I’m planning on checking out next, kind of as a way of letting everyone know what to expect soon.
I’m still very wishy-washy about the above segments, so I’m open to thoughts/opinions. I’m also open to implementing any others you think may work. After all, I would love for my posts to be as fun to read as they are to write them.
Should I change/get rid of any of the above? Are any a good idea? Let me hear your thoughts!
