My 3 Blogging Senpais | Let’s Make Them Uncomfortable
Hi guys and welcome to my place! 😀
So, today I woke up and I was tagged for the Liebster Award by the lovely Lilisblissfulpages, nope… Sorry Lilly, but this is not the answer for the award… Yet! But something happened while reading her delightful post, many things she told about herself resonated with me and I end up making a huge comment with my love story in the middle of it (Don’t worry guys, that story will also come out one day! In reality I already have a day in mind for it!). But my conversation with her made my brain starting to work, a.k.a., writing the post of my love story in my head! However, from the title (and what because what I just said, you also know this post is not about that either).
(If you are not following Lilly yet, do so, she has that power to write in a manner that she is talking directly to you… You know, the thing I try to in my blog? Yeah, her blog gives me that vibe, but you know… When it’s well done!)
Well, while I was mentally writing the post of my love story I went taking a shower (Yes, my brain is always working, even when I want to shut him off), but from there my mind went to the love in the WordPress community and from there I started thinking about the 3 people in here that I look up the most and why. And before you ask, yes, that’s how my mind works, always making these type of connections. Although a man, my brain works like the “normal” women’s brain work. And no, I’m not being sexist here, we all know that men’s and women’s brains work differently, it’s science! Of course, that doesn’t apply to everyone, being myself one of those examples, but I digress…
So, from here, I though, why not make a post about why I love them so much? It’s not an award, neither a tag, it’s just myself opening to the world the 3 bloggers that inspire me the most and why is that! And well, I’m writing this right now.
Let me begin explaining you something, when growing up I never, but never had a like a celebrity or something like that I idolized (my boyfriend will tell you that I’m lying and that I idolize Rihanna), but the thing is, even if I may love someone never, ever I think that I want to be like them or something like that. There was a phase that occurred (and I talked about it this week), but it was not a long phase and moreover, it’s not that I idolized the person itself, but the way to handle this or that situation. I always felt good on my shoes (except the phase I had depression) even with flaws and everything, I always felt good with myself and being so perfectionist with myself, well, it’s really hard for someone to make me inspired!
Being that said, before I started this blog I did felt inspired from some people. My mom and my boyfriend, which I think it’s not really that hard to understand why and then there was only one person that greatly inspired and to be honest helped me a lot , that is Lilly Singhs, a.k.a., IIsuperwomanII, an indian/canadian major Youtuber and at my eyes, a role model due to… Well, basically everything she is, or at least that we can see on camera (I’m not naive enough to think that we see everything on camera). However, after starting this blog I found myself 3 more persons that really inspire me! I think that this is probably contrary to celebrities and so on because I was able to talk with them (All heil the power of the Internet) and see that they are what I already expected them to be by reading their blogs. Now, these people are really well-known in the Anime Blogging community and you probably already know them, if not, well what are you waiting for? Go following them! Ah, before I say who they are, I just wanted to say that they all 3 inspire me for different reasons! 😛
Only 2 other things I want to say is, I’m going to be brutally honest, as I think you already are accostumed if you follow my blog and that I’m not playing favourites here. I love you all and I can honestly say that I find myself having fun with all your blogs. As I said on Twitter, it’s really fun to binge-read a bunch of posts, see so many different unique ways of writing and all of them working out in their own special way 😛 Now, let’s go make these people uncomfortable and blushing while reading this muahahah
Karandi from 100wordanime – the sweet mother
The thing about Karandi is her work blogging ethic! I really don’t know how she is able to post every single day, most of the times more than one post. I’m going to be honest, I don’t read all your posts because I don’t follow episodic reviews, the thing is I don’t follow Anime seasons and I don’t want to get spoiled, nevertheless I always give you a like (here, being brutally honest) because I know for sure that your work will be extremely well written as your other posts that I read always are.
Karandi is the kind of person that will find you the moment you start blogging, don’t ask me how and what kind of sorcery is this, but that’s the plain truth. She will be one of the first liking and commenting all of your posts and like a sweet mother showing that she believes in you and making you feel motivated to push forward and continue to post. She does a lot for the community and I can only feel inspired by it! I know that I will never be able to do what she does because to manage what she does I would have to quit my job and just fully embrace blogging 24/7. However, Karandi does work and I really can’t understand how she manages it.
I see Karandi as the person that if she says I’ve done a good work, then I will feel that “Yeah, this time I really did a good job!”. I was able to be featured in 2 of her “In Case You Missed it” and well, yeah I’m not going to lie, it felt that I just had checked one of the things in my bucket list.
So yeah, Karandi inspires me to be more observant to the newest blogs, to give my all when it comes to bloggind and well, inspires me to work my ass off to be able to someday be a voice of reason in the blogging community as I see her.
Raistlin from Raistlin0903 – the friendliest guy
Another person who works his ass of for the community. If you go to a post and you don’t see a like and a comment from Raistlin in there it’s because he probably is asleep while the post came out. In twitter the other day he confessed that he had come from work at 18h and it was now 22h and he was still answering to comments, reading stuff and so on. Guys, this makes 4 hours!!! The moment I read that I just commented to my boyfriend I will never be able to do that and to be honest I won’t. I don’t have the blogging work ethic to do that! Again, the only way I would be able to do that is if I quit my job and started full-time at my blog, so having someone who does this… It just blows my mind.
And it’s not only the amount of comments and likes and so on he does because he could just go and write “Great post” in one comment and then copy paste through everything he reads. No, Raistlin has always a thoughfull comment and every time he comments you just feel happy with the words you are reading. He always has the right words and the right phrases to bright your day.
I’ve been talking a lot more with him in the past few days and to be completely honest, more and more I don’t understand how the hell he is still single, because he’s just the sweetest guy!
So, basically Raistlin inspires me to be a better person and the sweetest I can all the times, as also trying to read, like and comment the most as I can! Something that I diligently started doing… 2 days ago LOL
Irina Kami-sama from drukenanimeblog – the cool drunk kid
This one, everyone already knows, I’ve been talking about her and the inspiration she gives me basically every time I have the opportunity. And yes, I upgraded her to the goddess title, she just told me about an app that read pages, so nowadays I’m able to catch up with your posts while working at the same time and I said if that app worked I would start calling her that!
But why? Why, she is such an inspiration for me? Well, she also gives a lot to the community, she was the one that made my blog get the first small jump on followers and if I’m here today with almost 150 followers it’s because of her, together with all my hard work of course (One my goals in the present is to learn to give more credit to myself, so I just had to say that – moreover, if I didn’t I already know what Irina would comment down below). However, that’s no different from the guy and girl I talked before. What makes her special?
First she is the embodiment of Canadian stereotypes. She is just so kind and polite… And you just know that she is like that naturally! Well, I’m also kind and polite, in reality I’m a canadian by heart (although I’m portuguese and I never passed the Atlantic ocean). However, I know that sometimes I’m not that naturally doing so. Sometimes I just want to tell someone to go F yourself, yes I restrain myself on doing it, but in my mind I’m not really being that nice of a person, I’m not accepting the other person for what they are and I can just be misjudging them… So, yeah, you have that.
Then you have that she is basically one of the cool kids! She always has a fun thing to say and to comment! My boyfriend at the moment knows many blogs that I see as… Friends (?), but in reality Irina he’s the one he knows the most, and the one I talk the most to be honest. And like me, he always laugh to the funny comments she always say at the right moment! xD The last one being she telling me that she kidnaps orphans to like and comment posts for her when I asked these 3 awesome people on Twitter how the hell are they able to catch up with all the posts xD
So Irina inspires me to be a better person overall as also a more funnier person while writing. Don’t take me wrong, I think most of my posts have some funny parts in there and in real life people do tend to laugh at my jokes. But I’m not as good as Irina, specially making funny comments with writing, I’m more the type of physical comedy xD But yeah, basically she inspires me to be a little more laid back and just approachable person. I mean, do you think that all of her collabs come from heaven? No, that’s the result of hard work and well, the person she is. Well, basically I also want to be a cool kid, that is all >.>
And that’s it everyone! I know, not really a normal type of post to have in the community, but hey, spread the love not hate right! And as I learnt from IIsuperwomanII if you have something good to tell about someone just do it, Internet needs more love thoughts on it and to be honest, if we think a little bit of it, it comes way natural to speak of something about a person when we don’t like when we do like.
Tell me on the comments who is the blogger/person that inspires you the most and why? Or if you want, take this idea and make a post about that blogger/person. Again, spreading the love is never too much and the Internet really needs it!
See You Soon! 😀
