Today is Mainichi Anime Yume’s 9-year anniversary. And, ironically, despite the fact that I haven’t been blogging much lately, this is the first time in years that I actually remembered the blog’s anniversary on time! So I felt like I’d use this special occasion to update those of you who still read this blog on how things have been going with me, as well as any plans I may have for MAY’s future…

Today’s my 29th birthday, and being only a year away from the big 30, it’s a little scary. This past year has seen a lot of changes in my life, both in terms of blogging and personally…

Belated 8-year anniversary post…and why blogging still matters

Credit to linked pixiv user

Mainichi Anime Yume turned 8 years old a little over a month ago, and as usual, I forgot all about it until this week. But better late than never! (especially since I failed to make an anniversary post last year) Although my blogging has seen some changes this year, I still intend to keep it up for as long as I can, despite the fact that blogging itself may be fading away…

Feels good to be back! As many of you know, I put Mainichi Anime Yume on hiatus at the end of May, returning only briefly in July for my Anime Expo coverage. But now that September has come and I start my fall semester of school tomorrow, I figured it’s time to get back into the swing of blogging! After the jump below, I discuss what kinds of posts and blogging schedule I have planned, as well as what my non-blogging self has been up to these past few months…

After 5 straight years of consistent blogging, rarely going more than a week without a new post, I finally have to put MAY on hiatus for an extended period of time. As for why that is and when you can expect to see a new post again, read on…

Anime blogging and evolving as a writer

Having been dedicated to writing about anime online for over a decade now, it’s no surprise that my style as a writer has evolved over the course of those years. Kai on deluscar wrote a post last month about how he’s also evolved as a writer thanks to a passion for writing about anime, which inspired me to share my experiences in writing and how my anime hobby has helped shaped me as a writer…

Six years of anime blogging

A little over a month ago, Mainichi Anime Yume turned six years old. Unfortunately I was too busy in early October with getting settled in my new job to remember, so all I managed to do was a quick tweet about it last week. But I did eventually want to write something about being one of the long-lasting anime bloggers, and since I don’t want to repeat what I wrote about when the blog turned five years old last year, I thought I’d do something a little different and take a brief look at how I got started with blogging in the first place…

10 years of AnimeYume

This past June 30th marked the 10-year anniversary of my domain name, AnimeYume.com. I would have mentioned it sooner, but as usual around that time of year, I was busy with Anime Expo and writing my reviews of completed seasonal anime. I decided that today would be a good day to post about it since, while Mainichi Anime Yume is only 6 years old, this is the blog’s 600th post…
