Blogger Recognition Award: Thank You Irina

A few days back, I received the Blogger Recognition Award from Irina! I don’t know why but there’s just something special about the name of this award, and coming from Irina, it feels as if I’m being recognised by someone famous, so that’s awesome. Anyhow, thanks for the nomination Irina!


Blogging to me is more than just an outlet for my passion. It’s an avenue for my hopes and dreams. So receiving this special award by an even more special person is a lot more rewarding to me than it might’ve otherwise been. This special person is of course the brilliantly wonderful Irina from drunkenanimeblog. That’s right, I was nominated by her of all people, one of the first few people who have inspired me throughout my time here. So let me take this time to give a huge thank you to Irina.

Irina had been among the first few people to have reached out to me and to show me that I wasn’t alone in this disgustingly massive online platform. She approached me, she welcomed me, and then she introduced me to her friends by linking me in one of her posts. Now how cool is that? By then, I had already been actively reading her posts, only to find out that not only was Irina a very nice person, but also really intelligent in her writing! I was inspired by her words and her personality, and have always been striving to acquire my own style of writing that would be as powerful as hers. So thank you, Irina, for this nomination as well as for being an inspiration to many people, especially myself.

Alright, enough of this soppy stuff, let’s get on with it then.

Say thanks to who nominated you and leave a link back to that person’s blog.

Whoops, I kind of already did that earlier. But again, thank you Irina for the nomination! But more importantly, thank you for being such a benevolent presence in this community! God forbid this to be true, but if you’ve yet to discover Irina yourself, then click the image- gah who am I kidding.

Give the story or history of your blog.

Hmm the story of my blog is anything but special, but I guess I’ve never told anyone here about it before. It won’t be a very nice story, but here goes.

I’ve always been passionate about anime and writing, with lots and lots of penned down reviews and thoughts of all sorts just laying around in my notes. I wanted to compare my opinions to that of other people, engage in discussions and to see if I could be the one to offer insightful stuff about my favourite anime. That’s when I first considered creating my own website, a portal for people to gather and rant about anime. Thus, here we are.

But I didn’t create this website just to be heard, but rather in the hopes that I’ll be able to turn my passion into something bigger. But these are all my future hopes and dreams for the website. For now it remains a pet project.

Give two or more pieces of advice for new bloggers.

Personally, I don’t think I’m experienced enough to be giving out concrete advice. But what I can say is that at the very least, I have experienced some things and my experience might be of use to newer bloggers. So here are 2 small pieces of advice from me.

Don’t forget to have fun writing.

When you’re so obsessed with getting your content out there, you can sometimes forget what it’s like to be having fun while you write. Quantity can sometimes be at the cost of quality, and that’s not what you want. For a start, it’s better that you write posts that you’ll have a lot of fun with. After all, if you had fun with your posts, then I’m sure your readers will too.

Pace yourself well and commit to it.

If you want your blog to be seen and heard by others, it would be a good idea to post regularly. But how regularly? That depends on how much you can and are willing to commit to your writing. The more often the better, but of course be mindful to pace yourself well so as to avoid burning out. You wouldn’t want yourself to start hating the idea of writing.

Nominate 10 other bloggers and link their blogs.

Since I absolutely love the name of this award, and want to show gratitude to some of the bloggers who have helped, taught, inspired and entertained me with their well-written posts, I’ll be nominating people who I personally think deserve every bit and more of the recognition they’re getting.

So if you’re nominated, no need to worry about having to reply this tag, it’s just my appreciation of you. I just wanted to include you here, whether or not you’ve already been nominated.

Dragon Warrior

Dragon Warrior from Den of Dreams is the friendliest person you’ll ever meet in the blogging sphere. Her poems and literature are heart wrenching and personal, and she draws some mean portraits too!

Inskidee

Inskidee from Inskime is a great personality with her witty reviews and discussions on anime. I always enjoy myself reading her posts. Also, I’ve always wanted to ask you, what does Inskidee or Inskime mean?

Annimeaddict

Annie from Annieme is such a gem. Annie writes the most informative and often educational posts. Even her posts on anime are really insightful! She’s honestly a great advocate for mental health, and is also really friendly and kind. If you haven’t already, do check her out! You’ll definitely learn a thing or two.

Crow

Needless to say, Crow from Crow’s World of Anime is a pretty well established blogger in this community. But I wanted them to at least know that they got MY recognition. What more could you want!

Ospreyshire

Ospreyshire from Ospreyshire’s Realm is a really friendly person who writes some great stuff pertaining to culture, history and music. He even does reviews on his other blog over at Iridium Eye Reviews. He’s a follower away from 300, so do follow up if you haven’t already!

Lynn

Lynn from The Otaku Author and Ecchi Hunter is a fantastic blogger who’s a very positive anime enthusiast. He’s such a role-model in his attitude towards blogging and his effort put into his regular posts. I always find new things from his blogs that I end up being keen to pick up as well.


I know I know, that’s only 6 nominees, but I’m not one to keep to rules anyway. Hope you give these blogs a look if you haven’t already, and thanks for reading! Also, thanks again for the nomination Irina!

  1. Aw, thank you! This totally made my day! You may not see it, but I’m smiling like a huge dork right now. On second thought, maybe its a good thing you don’t see it.

    Regarding your question, my blog name and username means..dun dun…absolutely nothing! I believe I was talking with my friends one day and I said something a little too fast than meant to and tied my tongue. I was talking about the SunnyD drink which is where the random “dee” comes from. Its a long story…Anyways, when I decided to sit myself down and create a blog, I had no idea what I wanted to call myself. I ended up choosing the awful tongue twister I created that day because why not? What better ideas did I have? “Inskime” originates from my username only “dee” changes to “me” because isn’t that so original and well thought out?

  2. A very big congratulations on your award and thank you so much!
    Your tips are valuable too, and you are so right to say we should write for fun… Currently I am really burdened with exams till 18 March and perhaps after then, I could be here more often. (:
    I am so sorry for my delayed comments and I hope you have a great time! ❀

  3. First, congrats!

    Seconds, thanks for the nomination! And the kind words along with it!

    That’s too many exclamation marks in a row, isn’t it?

    FWIW, I think y our advice is solid. It’s impossible to run a marathon at a sprint, after all.

    Thanks again!
