Hi all, and pardon my anxiety filled face.
I’ve been dreading this beginning a few weeks back, but when it finally became reality I still couldn’t deal with it at all. I’ve been hugging my knees and eating bucketful of soda power added lard drenched in Yebisu beer with sides of fried chicken skins and a few kilos worth of Krispy Kream Donut fillings, but nothing seems to work.
I’m currently in rehab dealing with Post-Claymore Ending Traumatic Stress Anxiety.
One thing I have recognized is that one major factor contributing to our site’s success depends on we blogging about massively popular shows or shows that get people talking about. While none of us blogs about Naruto or Bleach, which lasts for thousands of episodes, with millions and millions of Rock fans (fine, I know that’s a quite old reference to WWF but that’s as far as I followed WWF), I blogged about Claymore and Mike blogged about School Days.
On certain posts (read: 2 posts), we each got a few hundred hits per post (I can hear the big boys like THAT and Random thunderously loud snickering when I said: few hundred hits), and each of us felt mighty good about the site overall, dousing each other with gatorade and champaign while trying unsuccessfully to jump and run into each other “in a pile of players” as if we had won the World Series or World Cup. I’ll tell ya, trying to lift up the hero of the game with one group of big and strong athletes is easy, but trying to lift up Mike by myself is incredibly hard and we both are due for some serious weight loss. Bear in mind all that took place in cyberspace or in our imaginations.
Now Claymore is over, I’m worrying about two things: 1. People who came and read and left comments may not come back to our site if the Fall season doesn’t have shows with female supermodel warriors punishing yoma with love and justice…I mean with loyalty and friendship, while slicing and dicing uncircumcised yoma for a sausage and baloney breakfast…I mean fighting for the good of the world. No more in the name of the Claymores, I’ll punish you…I mean working for the organization for a profit. No more “I’m following you around because I’ve fallen in love with you and I want to stalk you”…I mean “I owe you a life debt.” No more supermodels demonstrating the latest accessories in warrior women fashion…I mean no more demon hunting. 2. We won’t have that many visiters.
Granted, we do this for free so we’re not supposed to care if 1 folk visits or if 1000 folks visits in a day, but because I’m man and full of pride, and I have been seduced by the power of the ring, and it has become my downfall…(Sorry if I have already completely lost you few cyber seconds ago)
It’s difficult to give up the power of spreading personalized and biased-as-hell ideas and opinions, and absolutely guaranteed 100% pure and unadulterated truth all over the cyberdomains.
Ray Hu is currently rehabilitating in a certain famous recovery center in LA.
Mike is building his own ark in his backyard.
Fred has taken over the duty of taking over the world.
Jeremy is working on releasing his solo album.
Our future is bleak indeed.

100+ hits is a glowing success in my book. Besides, blogging about the more obscure shows isn’t without its upside. If nobody else is blogging about a show, all that traffic (no matter how small) goes to you. Plus, those are the people who are most likely to stick around when their show is over.
“I like Show X. Why isn’t anybody writing about Show X? Hey, this guy is writing about Show X. He’s awesome! I’m going to read this website forever!”
Hey don’t worry! Rest assured that you’ll always have at least me XD
I come chek out Anime Diet everyday and I’m sure I’m not the only one.
I mean I’m pretty sure that if you review some of the interesting shows you were talking about in the Autumn Podcast (I suscribbed XD) you’ll still get a lot of hits.
Especially if you review Blue Drop. *cough cough* *blush*.
That said, I personally like it when there aren’t TOO many people hanging around, it becomes overcrowded after a while. Like it was going it was great and I’m certain that the people who got with you because of Claymore are also more likely to stay with you throughout the next year.
