Hi everyone and welcome to OUR place!

Finally! I’ve been wanting to change that in a long, long time! I know it’s small, but it makes all the difference! >.< Yeah you can say that I could just go and have changed in any post, but I wanted to use a special occasion to do it! πŸ˜€

First let me thank you all who have been supporting and following Arthifis’ Place! In the beginning I wanted to use this blog to learn more about digital marketing, then I started using the blog because I was having so much fun and wanted to write, read and talk with you, now… I’m here because of you and for you! It’s strange that I’m writing this post one day after the “Am I good Enough?” post came out, let’s say this week has been an emotional rollercoaster.

The fun thing is that I can relate to both of them!

I really want to thank you all for your support! Your comments did brighten my day/week and I can say that at this moment I only have one objective:

Entertain you while talking about Anime, Gaming and my life in general. That’s why I am going to continue blogging and posting every week. If I’m able to grow and make a life out of it, perfect (and I will do my best so that event can happen with more probability). However, that is not my goal at the moment. My goal is to live in the moment, celebrate the daily things and as I said, entertain you! πŸ˜€


Now let me first address the push-ups thing because I know many of you are waiting for this and I’m not going to deliver it. There are 2 reasons: Some weeks ago I injured my shoulder and I’m still not 100%, moreover it seems that my left arm is not at 100% either. This way I think it’s better not to start doing push-ups and stress the muscles which already are not in top form. Second reason is… You know that Anime and that game that were masterpieces but they decided to go, make a sequel and just destroyed everything? Well, I think the push-ups are the same thing! Great idea in the beginning but if you put out another 40 minutes of me doing push-ups people will just start feeling a little bored (which is completely normal).

I wish that I could do that!

However, I couldn’t just go, get 200 followers and not do anything special for everyone right? πŸ˜› This way I went out and created a GIF of myself! The idea is for you at least smile watching it and of course you can use it and abuse it all as you want!

In the first Liebster Award that I got, nominated by Chizu-bro I said that my useless talent was to make a good impression of the running guy meme, for the ones who don’t remember what that is, here is a refresh of memory :

200 followers running guy meme.gif

So I thought, let me share this with them and create a GIF of me doing basically the same thing! Everyone I showed this cracked up, so I hope you also find it funny! XD Here is my impression of the running guy meme:

I’m going places… Ok maybe not places… but somewhere…


Now that I find myself proudly with more than 200 guest at our place I decided it’s time to start helping smaller blogs! Now, I know there are many people doing that already! You have Irina with the blogwarming party, you have Jon’s Creator Showcase, Karandi with her “In Case You Missed It” series and you probably have more that at the moment I’m not remembering (sorry for the ones who I left out >.<).

My idea is a little different from the above. With Irina if you are a small blog you can submit one post and have the possibility to being featured in her blog, Jon is a little different, everyone can basically submit (small or big) their posts tag some people on twitter and the assigned “contributor” for that month will then proceed to share the bests ones on their blog. In Karandi side, it’s a weekly thing where she promotes the posts she has read that loved the most, doesn’t really matter if the blogs are small or big. Of course the objective is the same, helping the blogging community to grow together! πŸ˜€

You guys are awesome!

So, with all of this what did I come up with that is different enough for me to put out there instead of just going to this people and say “Hey! I want to help!”? Well, I’m not going to make a featured posts thing, I’m going to do a BLOG featured thing!

First, the name will be Main Hall Exhibit! (for now, I may change it later) You know those kind of houses that when you enter they have like a statue or something like that in the middle of the main hall entrance? You do? Cool! Well picture that then, but instead of a statue you have a pedestal with a blog on top of that! πŸ˜€ So, basically this series will be a place to expose smaller blogs and make them grow!

Something like this! In another note, don’t you love my Paint Skills?

Now, how this is going to happen?

First, in this case no one needs to submit their posts or blogs to me! I think that some people may be left out using process because it takes a lot of guts to submit your own work to a bigger blog, especially when you are still small and testing the waters. This way, what I’m going to do is, I already follow some blogs that are still small and I will randomly pick one and work with it! However, you can and you should give me suggestions of smaller blogs you know and love or even submit your own blog! Let’s be honest here, I don’t follow every Blog in the WordPress Community so that kind of help will be appreciated πŸ™‚ You can just use the contact page here or go to Twitter and DM me πŸ™‚

As I said, I’m not going to feature posts, I’m going to feature blogs. After I have the blog I will feature in mind I’m going to stalk their blog until exhaustion. This way, my post will be like a review of their blog (although always a positive one of course) and instead of one post I’ll go and say my favourite ones so you guys can go explore those posts for yourself and if you like what you see start following them! πŸ˜€

Yes! I’ll be eating Ice Cream at the same time!

I have some set of rules, or let’s say guidelines for this:

  • The blog can’t have more than 100 followers. (at least for now! If I end up with let’s say 500 followers I will start to feel that I can help bigger blogs than 100)
  • This will be a monthly thing! I would like to be more constant doing it, but let’s face it, I just don’t have the time!
  • I don’t really care what the blog is about! Although I’m going to try to focus on the Anime blogging community because that’s where most of you are, I will feature any blog that I feel that is good enough! πŸ™‚
  • I will only look at WordPress followers! So let’s say you have 50 followers from WP and 200 from e-mail I’ll feature nonetheless. This rule is just to make my work a little easier because It’s not always that easy to find how many people are following a blog by email!

And for now I think that’s it… Not sure, probably will remember something that I should have said and forgot after posting this, but hey it’s always like that and it’s not really a life or death situation. While these series are running of course I will notice things that need to be changed and improved! But that’s how life works am I right?

So, again! Thank you so much for your support and I’m out of myself about having 200 people at our place! πŸ˜€ Just a shameless plug and steal Karandi’s idea from Twitter, the party is happening here! Everyone feel free to join! πŸ˜€

See You Soon! πŸ˜€

  1. Yay Art-san! Congratulations!
    It’s a great project you started, glad to hear about it~
    That gif was awesome and hope your shoulder gets better soon.

    P.S- Your paint skills are WAY better than mine.

    1. Thank you Auri-nee! ^.^
      I hope that I can help some people getting the love and publicity they deserve πŸ˜›
      Thanks! πŸ˜€ Basically my friends are always asking me to do it and I thought well, let’s just do it as a gif then! XD Hope too! I’ve stopped dancing because of that πŸ™

      Ahahahah! I don’t think so I only did an arrow and a bad one πŸ˜›

  2. Heads up Arty-sis, at some point I would probably be stealing YOUR gif because that’s just gold and better than the original! Congrats on the milestone and really now, another fantastic idea to promote other blogs?? Your awesomeness knows no bounds.

    1. Steal away as much as you like Chizu-bro! This is in fact our place so I’m completely ok with that πŸ˜€ Thank you! Dunno if it’s better, but it’s something xD

      Thank you! Yeah, well I really want to help other bloggers! As you know I’ve just passed a difficult time when it comes to be a blogger and I just want to help others that may feel the same >.<

  3. ….aaaaaand downloaded gif. Time to use it everywhere now hohoho~
    Congratulations on 200 though. You deserve it. And this gif more than makes up for 200 push ups.
    Don’t listen to @Shoka above, he sells fake plants. Do 3 gifs instead of just 1 next time!

    1. Use it away! That’s the objective eheh XD
      Thank you~! ahahah well, let me see… I’ll try to do something that pleases you and Shoka at the same time! ^.^

  4. Congrats on the 200!! I think that gif is worth at least 500 push ups so you are covered for a while now. And what a wonderful project. ❀️

    1. Ahahah thank you~! It makes me happy that you think that way because I don’t think my body would be able to endure another round of push-ups in the near future xD
      And I’m glad that you liked the project! I hope I can help blogger all around the WordPress to grow! πŸ˜€

    1. Thank you, and thank you! Also thank you xD
      I hope that with this idea I’ll be able to help other bloggers getting the recognition and love they deserve! When it comes to the gif, I’m glad that you liked it! As I said yesterday I just want to entertain you guys ^.^

  5. CONGRATULATIONS!!! 200 followers is an amazing achievement and it’s very well deserved! ??? I love the idea for your project as I think it’s wonderful to help others out! Such a kind gesture!
    The gif you made is amazing I love it ? it brought a smile to my face!

    1. THANK YOU~! πŸ˜€ I’m glad you like the idea! πŸ™‚ I hope that I’m able to help others grow inside the blogging community with it eheh
      It did? That makes me really happy eheh! I was a little scared that people didn’t find it funny >.<

      1. You’re welcome!! I do and I’m sure you will! I’m sure many will appreciate your kind gesture! ?
        It did! It really made me smile so don’t worry about that! It’s a fabulous gif!

  6. Hoorayy!! Congrats Arthifis ? really amazing! Saving the gif because it is brilliant ? had me in stitches. Hope your shoulder will feel better soon!! (alas no push ups would have been fun though lol). Again congratulations!! ?

    1. Thank you~! πŸ˜€ Glad you liked it eheh I thought it would be a funny thing to do/share πŸ˜€
      Ahahah well, let’s see, maybe I should start giving video a little more attention even though I don’t have good material for it >.<

        1. I was able to catch it! But thank you again! You are too kind eheh ^.^

          The best way when doing tags is to put link for one post of the blog, this way they will get a direct notification. Only take in my mind that the post has to be opened from the blog itself and not the wordpress reader πŸ˜›

          Hope that I was able to explain it in a understandable manner >.<

  7. Congrats on the growth and a merry 200! The gif is a good replacement for the push-ups! Do not be confused when you see it probably pop up sometime or other in other’s posts or stuff though XD.

    1. Thank you~! ^.^ Ahahah glad it is enough to replace it eheh Oh that would just made extremely happy ahahah! I would just love it! xD But yeah, I would feel a little confused though!

  8. Congratulations!! ?
    That gif was awesome haha ? and I hope your shoulder gets better soon!! ?
    Also, that’s a great project your starting! Looking forward to it! ?

  9. Once again congrats nii* your hard work is paying off! That gif is going to be a total success on the Internet lool

    1. Did you just made a WP account to comment here? Oo Thank you so much! πŸ˜€ Was not expecting this in a bit and you just made me smile like a stupid person in the middle of the streer!
      ahahah We’ll see! πŸ˜›

  10. This is probably for the best. If your blog keeps growing you may get to the stage of doing as many push ups as PewDiePie has subscribers. That will really mess up your shoulder!

    1. Loooool xD I don’t think I’ll ever be able to get so many followers as Pewdipie has, but thank you for believing that xD But yeah you are right, especially when followers growth normally start getting exponencially at some point
