Every blogger has her own own landmark. Some at 10,000 hits; some after a year. I chose to make a post at my 100th post to reflect back on my blogging experience over the past two years.
I think more than anything, the visits and the comments make the core of the blog. The opinions, feedback, questions, and random rants from the various people are my motivation for continuing to write out entries. I take every comment and hit to heart, and I offer you my sincerest appreciation. So thank you.
Reading my own posts, I realize that many of my posts are actually quite uninspiring. Indeed, that is what one would expect from a listless blogger. Unlike my fellow bloggers, I do not have the snarky and witty writings nor the flamboyant arrogant charm. I do not take cute and creative photographs. My reviews are hardly all that interesting or critical, and my shallow posts almost never probe the mind or allow one to look deep inside the self, society, and culture. For those posts, simply check out the sites in the links section. Rather, my language tends to come out as boringly polite and flowery. However, I do still somehow take a bit of pride in what I have written, and I am glad many of you at least read a few words.
Perhaps for the next hundred posts, I will be a little more funny, edgy, controversial, and inquisitive without sounding either like a bitchy jerk or a pompous prick, which far too often have I seen many blogs become. Of course, I will have great blogs to draw inspiration from. So I would like to thank all those blogs and sites that I follow.
Now, everyone is interested in the statistics.
I started Listless Ink intending to detail my life. Somewhere along the way, it became anime centric. Then later, the blog shifts its direction to focus even more specifically on yuri. Even though the blog has differed from where it began, I still love where it is at today.
Thank you so much, Shijima.
And thank you, all who have linked me or added me to their blogroll.
Lastly, I want to again thank all the lovely readers. I would also especially like to thank those who have visited and commented regularly. You know who you are. Without your support, I do not think I would have ever gotten to 100 posts.Thank you for making Listless Ink such an enjoyable experience. I love you. ^ ^
