Thanks, Mel, for nominating me! Seriously, people, check out her blog! On top of stellar content, she has a wonderful collection of anime guys, so it’s really difficult to forget!
Now, forgive me for asking this newbie question here, but when you link someone else’s blog, do they always get notified? It’s something I’ve been a little confused about when nominating people for the Liebster Award. Do you just name and link them, or should you nominate each person individually?
Anyways, let’s get to the actual thing.
I explained this story just recently in my post The Moyatorium: A Brief Existence that Hopes to Stick Around. For more info, also check out my first introductory post: Welcome to my little blog~. In short, the blog was created in an attempt to have more things to put on my resume – things like “expertise with WordPress” and “experience with article-writing.” Did I disappoint you? I’m sorry.
I’ve always thought “The Moyatorium” would be a cool name to use for something though. Back in high school, a friend and I lamented together about moratoriums and existential crises and she kept using “moya-moya” to describe how she felt as graduation approached. “What a moyatorium,” I punned. She rolled her eyes, but I thought I was kind of brilliant. So yeah, here I am…
Blogging Advice (If you dare take advice from me)
Use thesaurus.com. I know, online thesauruses get a bad rap, but don’t be afraid to use them! You know, that moment we all have when you’re thinking of a word that kind of describes something but isn’t perfectly accurate? Or maybe the word you know that you definitely know is just evading you? As long as you properly look up any words that you’re not sure about, there really isn’t an issue. Especially if you do somewhat creative work as well – thesaurus.com has helped me immensely when coming up with translyrics.
Always say “yes” when you’re wondering yes or no. No matter if it’s when you’re unsure as to whether to write on a new topic you haven’t tried, comment under a post of someone you don’t know, or publish something weird you just wrote, just do it! It’s difficult for me to do that even now, but if you don’t, you’ll just end up regretting. WordPress is a space to experiment. And if this reassures anyone, you can always go back and trash a post you really end up hating (and you can also recall what you have trashed!).
Now, the Best Part
I don’t know many of you yet, so if you get nominated but don’t actually remember who I am, it’s perfectly normal. Do know that I really admire your blogs though. You can consider it as a “notice me, senpai~!” call from me.
