Wow! It’s not 2020 anymore, and we’re still here! We hope that you’re still here too!
Let’s be honest, it’s been a rough year for all of us due to the various amounts of things going on in the real world, but that doesn’t mean that it was all bad either. We hope that you’ve at least had some good moments that have stuck out in your memory which will hopefully push some of the worst things out of your mind when looking back upon the year.
Unlike the past anniversary posts and in the same spirit as last years (which I will get into more detail about shortly), this one will be brief and condensed, sort of showcasing what will be upcoming throughout the year, celebrating some successes, and throwing out some announcements as well.
Another year has come and gone and we at the Backloggers find ourselves at our anniversary for this blog. We’ve definitely seen more active years in the past, but we got to try out a few new ideas and were invited to participate in some very fun and interesting new experiences. As is usual, we’d like to look back on what we were up to this last year, but also what we’ve learned and can do better.
Rather than our more wordy approaches in the past, we’ve decided that we want to refine the anniversary post, as well as all our future content, and make it a lot more manageable for us. The plan is to be consistent and streamlined as we dedicate ourselves to doing better this coming year. So how about we begin with what we were up to this past year?
First off, thanks to the Medieval Otaku Blog for nominating us for the Sunshine Award 2019. If it wasn’t for this nomination, we wouldn’t have found your blog which is a pretty interesting perspective to come at anime with, so thank you for that as well!
We hadn’t received one of these before, so we weren’t sure how to handle it at first, but we appreciate the nomination and hope that you enjoy the content that’s on our blog! You guys as readers are definitely one of the reasons that we continue to write and make content, so thank you so much.
Note: I’m starting off this post by saying that this is my no means to be any reflection of the other members of the Backloggers. This is solely my thoughts on this topic alone. Although this post will talk about general blog updates and general impressions of the blog, I obviously cannot speak for anyone but myself and my opinions on the subject at hand.
This post will probably be the longest post I’ve ever written, but I think this will offer some explanation and insight behind our blog here at The Backloggers, and also explain some of our recent behavior (or lack thereof). So, I encourage you to read this post as a sort of response to Irina’s “Blogging Breaks” post on Karandi’s blog, although it won’t directly pertain to the content in that post, along with some of the stuff that’s been happening with this blog.
It’s that time again, folks. The Backloggers Anniversary has rolled around again, and I honestly can’t believe we’ve been doing this 4 years at this point. Granted, we’ve had our ups and downs in terms of activity and the first year of starting up really doesn’t count anyway, but hey, at least we can say that we’re still doing it and still intend to continue doing it for a while. So no worries about us going anywhere anytime soon; we’re here to stay!
We’ve got a lot of ground to cover with this year’s anniversary post, so let’s just go ahead and get right to it!
Hey, Mythos here. May kinda came and went for me way too fast. I’m still balancing multiple things in my life, which unfortunately also hit a couple of us here at The Backloggers at the same time so I want to apologize for the lack of content recently. We’re gonna try and push through this, most likely becoming master jugglers by the end of it, joining the circus, and amazing all with our incredibly skill and dexterity… Or we could just write a few articles. That works too.
Anyways, in the meantime, other people have been going full ham and we wanna share some of that good, good stuff out there with you. Definitely gives these a look ‘cause we got some hot takes here, and they’re comin’ atcha fast!
Hey everyone, Mythos here. November went by and you may have noticed a lack of updates on our part. It’s funny, the three of us started this blog specifically because we enjoyed talking with each other about anime so much, we wanted to share our thoughts and talk to others about it. Sadly, we’ve been pretty mute, haven’t we? Continue reading
