Ain’t no Danny Choo

Lately I have been receiving a lot of solicitations in my email pertaining my blog.

I realize that after five years being up, I have a really high Google Rank so… I can say I wield considerable power with just one link. Or even a few. Or hell, even an entire endorsement post on the blog or perhaps a permanent ad fixture.

That being said, I have NEVER EVER thought of blogging for money or using this “power” for my own profit. Pretty much what I write is just my own hobby and I don’t feel that it’s worth enough to sell it for a few petty dollars of linkbacks, ads or endorsements. Which is why this blog has had minimal ads all this time (mainly to support server costs) and I have never written a single endorsement post.

I am fine if you think that I should get some press releases from time to time, but if you don’t hear anything back from me, I just hope you get the message.

    Well, as long as you’re not blogging anime for profit, I think you’re good!

    You’re doing an awesome job and your reviews, blogs, and posts have helped me find some hidden gems and pick up some cool stuff. Keep it up!

    Though I haven’t posted often on your blog, I’ve followed many anime series that I have since liked on your blog over the years. (I’m currently following Madoka but I’m not one of the people with conspiracies–I’m merely watching how it turns out.) Your blog has helped me discover many showsI wouldn’t have noticed beforehand. You’re doing a really great job blogging, and here’s to many more years of doing so!

    I usually don`t read reviews/analysis/posts on animes that aren`t well known to the general fan base(aka mainstream). But with your sense of humor and ability to convey most of your emotions/thoughts in one to two phrases with; I can`t help but to want to read more! So I ended up picking up about more than 12 series just so I can follow along with your posts. Thanks to you I was introduced to a lot of fun quirky series!

    You do whatever the hell you want to do. Will always be a fan of your blog~
