Just words in my blogging vocabulary I’ll ever us properly.
Remy from the Lily Garden is an inspiration for this piece from their own blog editorials they write.
Think we can agree anime is such a unique medium, that is unlike other mediums. Where there is so much freedom in it’s genres and stories. It’s like a blank canvas never knowing what the first few strokes will evolve too, or the imagination. Anime is an art all on it’s own with youtubers, bloggers treating it as so. Anime covering such deep, vast themes in it’s works that, it can’t help engage others. To speak and analyse what makes each series unique and special about it.
Let’s go back to when I was on google blogger, how that platform is like a waste land. Chances of anyone reading or noticing my little blog on their was slim to none. That was my experience anyway. Unlike word press when it comes to blogging in general, it was like an explosion of happiness hitting me. Seeing all of these people blogging about anime from fan-girling to deep analytical pieces that make the brain think. Seeing everythingin a new aspect.
Somewhere along the way last year I started giving more thought into my layout of certain posts, breaking down themes and going in more depth. This was all inspired from bloggers I consider to be better at “going in deep” than me. To give an example blogger Emily fromAtelier Emily is someone I’m avidly always reading their content. I admire their analytical posts such asThe Flower Language of Ancient Magus Bride Episode 1 exploring the meanings of native flowers. Tying to the main character Chise. Until reading pieces like this, is when I started when watching series or writing about them. To take more notice of a series main themes and what it explores.
But course I knew,
They were not going to sound like other anime bloggers, who had a good way with words.
Big Fancy Words
Not sticking to how you love writing will have it’s on repercussions. People I’ve followed in the pass that I’ve followed their content. You grow accustom in a bloggers writing style and it’s where I’ve noticed people begin to change it up. By attempting in my eyes words in their writing they might not normally use. “The dialogue is fairly strong in *something” I’ve seen this written and made no sense to me. Meanings like this I goggle all the time and still in confusion about what point is trying to be conveyed.
Every blogger wants to get noticed in some way or form but using words in your writing. That you don’t know how to use and make your posts more interesting won’t give you any of the benefits you may seek. This is something never have attempted when I started this blog and don’t intend to start now. My bubbly, outburst nature in my posts is apart of me. Attempting to start being so serious in my posts constantly would just go against my own blogging style. Attempting at using words your not familiarised with to just make your post, more dynamic. Is going to leave you sulking in dissatisfaction.
Sticking To Your Guns
This is the most simple, important point wanted to get across and stick to your writing guns. It’s okay to load up on new ideas and expansion in your blogging style but only write how your comfortable with. I’ve touched upon before about the importance in enjoyment factor in your passions and hobbies. There is no point trying to sound something you are simply not in your posts. It will leave you in disappointment and a sense of unfulfillment.
It is a-lass any analysis or analytical discussion happen to read that makes me wish at times, my posts sounded smarter. But I know I’m not like other people whom know how to chain smart, engaging words together. While it’s okay to feel slightly jealous, also makes me remember from when myself starting out blogging. For how far I’ve come since then and notice myself the change in my style. But it was for the better. Who wants to sound a big shot who knows what the hell their talking about. Not Lita, I’d rather delete this blog and start anew.
Delete…. haha No panicking it’s a joke.
Not every post you produce, your thoughts, your fan-girling has to be top notch or sound smart. Your just lying to yourself in what your feeling as you type away, saying a show was amazing when you thought it was trash. Saying the music backing was so harmonically with certain scenes, when you couldn’t care less about the music. It’s not easy to state your opinion because the fear others will pick away at it. Your blog, your space, you won’t be the only one feeling as you might do.
In your posts of what your excited about, must talk about, you just gotta let loose. It’s what I’m doing right now, not trying to sound smart in this post. Once in your life I’m sure you’ve been told once “Don’t be something your not”. It’s okay to want to branch out in your style, but I’m telling you as a reminder have fun in your writing. It’s what counts at the end. You agree?
Finally an extra post I promised you all and delivered for once. I’ve been blogging up a storm today with drafts of upcoming pieces. But this will be happening at a slow pace. But this was a topic that had been weighing on me for some time now. But please guys down below comment below any thoughts you have on this topic !!! Have you tried to use words that were beyond you? Did it work out for you or not?
Hope you enjoyed this post as always and I’ll see you all in the next post!!
