Aniblogging Escapades: A blog series continuation of sorts from Tips on Aniblogging | The Newcomer Edition seen previously on the blog. Where as an aniblogger, I, will aim to give helpful tips on anime and manga blogging or recounts of things notice while aniblogging. If you’re an aniblogger yourself maybe you will stick with the blog series and find this helpful yourself or if you’re a new aniblogger just starting out this could yet be of benefit. Either way, enjoy! They go up on Wednesdays.
For a new beginning aniblogger or even an old one there are such things as pressures in aniblogging. It becomes easier to handle the stress of blogging about anime over the course of developing the skill to blog consistently but there is always an ever constant stress in trying to keep up with watching habits and later the process of blogging anime. Aniblogging is basically at times (not all but sometimes) turning leisure into work. This is especially true when you’re hit with the overwhelming sense of dread from having watched a fantastic anime episode and then you can’t even come up with an equal piece of fantastic for your blog. Considering watching anime has always been a rather personal experience, seen like that, episodic aniblogging really was always truly outdated. It really does not add much since from my view other than first looks to pique other people’s interest for a certain anime. More aniblogging seems rather pointless.
Not to mention the biggest trouble with episodic anime reviewing: how to come up with something that adds to enrich another anime fan’s experience through basically one episode shots. It is pretty difficult no matter how you look at it. Sure it can be done but sometimes not competently.
Still I am not here to talk about how episodic aniblogging has become in some ways, notice I do not say all, but in most ways obsolete. Plus, I am not here to waste your time. As a true anime enthusiast you probably already knew that. Rather, I am here to talk about how episodic aniblogging is still an essential part of an anime blog. I mean believe it or not episodic aniblogging can actually force anime fans to see that a particular current airing/simulcasting anime is worthy of attention. This is very important because some truly fantastic anime can, in fact, slip the notice of anime fans especially when there are some top popular anime being the center of talk by most anime fans. That in my opinion do not really deserve to be aniblogged all that much given the level of attention they already enjoy.
Thus seen in that way episodic aniblogging does have a place as a form of interaction with anime enthusiasts and perhaps that is worth all the brain hurt and pensive thinking needed for those episodic anime reviews. Not to mention working tight deadlines to get those episode anime reviews live before an anime season is over. It might not be as important as a few years back but it is still key when some anime fans might realize that the more popular anime are just not doing it for them. In that case, anibloggers can begin or continue episodic aniblogging for more obscure anime titles. Thus continually renewing interest in anime.
