Happy 2017 everyone! Breathe in, inhale the good vibes, breathe out, set the mood right, grab your favorite morning drink and cheers!
It’s been a nice year, maybe far from being the best, but still has lots of things to thank for especially the good health and peace of mind God has given to all of us dear friends! So here’s my 2016 saying goodbye and 2017 saying ‘hi!’
What You and I can look forward to this 2017
Changes and flexibility in my blogging schedule is always welcome, but I find it better to write things down or plan ahead to keep myself on track and set aside my tendencies to procrastinate.
I’m writing this part as a sort of a ‘commitment statement’ to stick to my content calendar, which I just updated yesterday. Anyway, here’s the initial blog activities to come:
OWLS Blog Tour
I made an introduction post about OWLS early December and we’re scheduled to start posting content this year. Members will be sharing it on our blogs and social media accounts so stay tuned!
This is originally an idea I got from a local anime magazine (Otakuzine) here in the Philippines. The idea was to choose two anime characters, each from a different series, that have some resemblance to each other either by facial feature, attitude and the like.
The idea of the magazine was to create a short story where these two characters interact with each other.
My Twist: Instead of making a story, I’ll be presenting all the similar and unique characteristics for each. It will literally be a VS. type of post where we get to imagine, assess, evaluate and decide who wins a certain scenario – something which I’ll have to set beforehand.
I’m still polishing the details and there will probably be more changes but the initial plan was to make two ‘Battledome’ feature a month.
Featured blog or blogger of the month
This year’s been a productive blogging experience, and I got to know several bloggers who really wrote interesting posts. Some were inspirational, others were thought-provoking and there were those which made me question why I blog in the first place.
I’ll be choosing one featured blog / blogger every month based on a set of criteria – something which I’ll introduce later this week.
Launching of a registered website for bloggers and writers!
This will be a non-anime related blog. It will focus on writing, blogging and basically anything related to the craft. More details about this will be announced within the first half of 2017.
I wouldn’t be asking what your blogging plans are for 2017, but I’m hoping it will be better and more meaningful than the previous year! Best wishes to your family and God bless!
