Growing Step by Step!

Growing Step by Step!

Hi guys and welcome to my place!

I’ve been completely out in catching up with my tags! Sorry guys >.< But I’m going to try to write all them in the upcoming weeks! Promise!!

Going to start with the:

Now… Every single time I receive a notification about my blog being tagged to one award it always baffles me! It’s extremely so kind of you to think about my little place when writing the tag and I can’t express how happy it always make me feel!

But then, when I get tagged by someone who inspires me so much (go to my 3 Blogging Senpais post to understand what I’m talking about) it completely blows my mind! Literally my senpai just noticed me!!!! So, I want to thank Irina for the tag! Everyone here already knows her and well thank you so much! Since I don’t like to repeat myself (at least so soon) and I think the amount of embarrassing you had saturday is enough for a month (me being considerate), I’ll refrain myself to go again why you are such a great blogger and a person in general. But if you guys want to know, please go to my latest post. You can find it here! Again, I can’t express by words how much happy you made me by nominating to this award and also… You made me blush when I read your description of my blog in yout post, so you can call Saturday a pay back! Muahahah

Now, it’s no award in Arthifis’ Place without the next gif (it’s like a hidden rule I applied to myself)


The Rules:

  • Put the award logo/image on your blog – done
  • Thank the individual that nominated you and provide a link to their blog – done, but thank you again Irina!!!!
  • Describe the award and mention the creator: Roda @Β @Growingself.blogΒ – great job Roda! (And – Done!)
  • Nominate up to 5 blogs. Remember, the purpose of this award is to specifically celebrate those individuals that make a difference in the lives of others. – almost there
  • Give 1 reason why you nominated each individual. – almost there
  • Notify your nominees by commenting on their blog – not commenting but I’ll link to one of their posts so they can get a notification πŸ™‚

Let’s go then to share all these 5 awesome people and why am I nominating them shall we?

Anime Q and A


Well, I started following Anime Q and A not that long ago, but the thing is, her/his (? don’t know your gender sorry >.< – but I’m going to address you as a girl, if you are not, well didn’t you ever thought how would it be to change genders for a day? It’s your lucky day then!) posts are always so much fun. The way she found to review Anime is great, basically she does a 20 questions and answers and it always seem the most fluid conversation and she is able to get her ideas of the Anime while at the same time being really funny. To be honest until to this point I don’t know if she is answering someone’s questions or that she writes the post by herself. I think it’s the latest which completely blows my mind! But, hey not sure and too embarrassed to ask :$

A Nerdy Perspective


How can I talk about growing and don’t speak about Sam? She just crossed her 100 Followers mark and to be honest it’s completely well deserved! It blows my mind how she writes about so many things! In her blog you can find Anime reviews, book reviews, travel… I don’t know, you name it and probably she has it in there somewhere!Β  But, what blows my mind even more is how she is able to adapt so well to each theme and basically be able to create good stuff in all the subjects. That and I loved to follow her trip to London! πŸ˜› If you are not still following her, GO NOW! Let us make her get to 200 followers! πŸ™‚

Β Chizu-bro


How could I do this award tag without tagging my bro? (she is a girl though! Not going to do the same mistake twice!) Chizurue has one of those kind of blogs that it’s impossible for you not to melt while scrolling through it! It amazes me that even though we are using the same theme, she was able to do THAT! I mean the blog is so cute and heart warming! Even if you are one that not reads that much (well if you are, I don’t know what you are doing in WordPress in the first place), but well, you can go to her website and just well, look to how pretty it is! But more than the visuals, the moment you do start reading her posts you will just melt with her way with words, I don’t really know, but I picture Chizurue as one of those really sweet and hugable persons!

Murasaki Mugen’s Blog


Other blogger who I started following not so long ago. He just crossed the mile of the 20 followers and as a thank you gift is going to post top 20 posts everyday, 7 days straight! (Which I think it will make him go to the 50 followers mark in no time to be honest!). So if you are looking for some nice Anime recommendations go follow him! But it’s not all about the tops, ooooh no! Yesterday he uploaded a post about the hardship of letting go and why is it important to do it! Moreover, he is also thriving to get better at dancing and become a great choreographer! How cool is that? Do I need to say something more? Yeah I though not! Go follow him right now!

It’s An Anime Thing


Now, Josie is the blogger I know that is the best in working with all the social media! (Don’t know how she has the time for all that, or the creativity, but ok!) So her blog is already sold to a bunch of people and she does a great job doing it! But more of that I want to talk with you about her Twitter and specially her short videos on Instagram! They are so fun to watch and she is just the cutest thing! Really, I end up always smiling when I’m browsing Instagram and one of her videos pop up! She has a great way to work with the camera! Of course, she also has a Youtube video where she releases longer videos! So yeah, entertainment in all kind of sort of media you can think of! And she is only 15!!! What was I doing when I was 15?… Now, I feel bad!

That’s all everyone! I’m going to try to release one tag every week and just make Mondays the award mondays! Because… Is there a better way to start the week?


See You Soon! πŸ˜€

  1. YAY – I’m so happy you found time for this – thank you so much! I’m still very flustered about yuor weekend post. To have someone as kind and considerate call me an influence is one of the greatest compliments I can think of and I’m trying to figure out how to work it into my resume…

    1. Thank YOU for nominating me! πŸ˜€
      Looool! Well, the resume maybe not, but be aware if you are thinking on adding it on your LinkedIn profile, you may just not see the end for people trying to recruit you! πŸ˜€

    2. For future reference: he’s not the only one you know …
      If you would like a letter of recommendation I would happily write one for you dear Irina (assuming you found a way to include it in your resume) <3

      1. Funny story – I have never interviewed for a job and as such I don’t actually have a resume. I am thinking I should create one just to show off how many awesome online friends I have!

          1. Don’t know if doing it while drunk is the best way to do it, but hey, what do I know? Go for it! And put cocktail mixing in the skills while doing it! πŸ˜€

        1. Whaaat? How are things done in Canada? Oo
          Well, I mean… You are cool as that, now that I think for a sec, it’s just normal that you never had to do an interview xD
          I’m completely on board with that and loved to see it! πŸ˜›

          1. I basically stayed in school until they kicked me out into an internship and went from there… Since I’m in a field that is still really understaffed in my country there’s a lot of aggressive recruiting happening.

          2. You can call that aggressive xD To the point of not even doing an interview your job must need like 3 arms or something like that…. Ah! Now I understand how you can catch up with all the blogs! You don’t have clones, but you have extra arms!!!!!!

    3. We’ll….just like Chizure mentioned….it’s probably not going to be a very huge surprise that I would also write that same letter of recommendation. Maybe we could make this a group effort. I think that wherever you apply having over 500 letters with recommendations is bound to get you a job right???

  2. What a lovely post and thank you for nominating me! It me, Anime Q and A though I comment under Cactus Matt, and I am in fact male, but I have no issue being identified as whatever, I’m not fussy (and yes I would very much like to change gender for a day)! lol

    To answer your questions, I am both the asker of the questions and the answerer, I find the conversational style the easiest way to write reviews, I have so much fun writing them and I’m glad others have so much fun reading them!

    1. There! Just made your dream come true for some minutes xD
      Then, you sir, just amaze the most! It’s art to be able to write in the conversation format and make it so fluid and natural as you do! Hat’s off for you!

  3. Waaaa ~ ! I’m beet red and it’s your fault Arthifis! Thank you so very much for including me in this. I would have done this first because I was already tagged and I was going to include you in it! You beat me to it. But I still think I will include you nonetheless ^^ About my blog – I have you to thank for that design/theme too. So thank you again dear Arty-sis and hope we keep growing together in this community!
    That J. Law gif will never get old. Love that you keep using it.

    Tackling you with lots of hugs (virtual hugs!). I’m adorable that way. <3

    1. I win! Muahahahahah xD Just kidding! It’s so kind of you to think of me while doing the tag eheh
      Cheers to everyone’s growth! πŸ˜€
      And yes, I’ll use it forever! Unless I find even a better gif of her (I was really inclined to use the one she says “I beat Meryl”, but I ended up using the one I always use eheh

      Thaaaank you!!!!! I know you are eheheh I’m sending the hugs back by the way! <3

  4. Congratulations on this award! (Ant of course the 1000 others that are bound to be sent your way over the coming months! ?? ) Seriously though, like Irina I’m still pretty much stunned about your post from. I told people at work again (yes I am still trying to increase your fame) and everyone just thought it was such an amazingly nice thing that you have done. So…in other words: you more than deserve this award. Keep on growing and growing: you are bound to hit those 200 followers and beyond in no time! ??

    1. Ooooooh thank you much :$ Again, if I go to Holland and don’t find a troupe of fans waiting for me I will be disappointed Raist! But really, it makes me really happy (and embarassed that you have been comenting about my little place with your friends ^.^
      Cheers to everyone growing together \o/ (And I hope it will take a while, I’m still sore with the other 100 push-ups! XD Just kidding!)

      1. Haha: no need to feel embarrassed at all. It’s all good talk: so really no worries on that front!. And of course I will be right there when you do go to Holland as the leader of that group of fans lol ?
        Well…it’s going faster then you think: you already passed 150 followers: awesome! ??

  5. Well, I think it’s not surprising you got nominated.. You deserve this award and other awards.. Your blog is amazing and definitely as a person, you’re even more amazing… COngrats with this and have a great day… or night. πŸ™‚ It’s past midnight where I am. :0
