So I embarrassed myself at a convention yesterday. I was planning on meeting up with NyanNyan for the first time. It would be the first time I meet another aniblogger in person. So we chose a time to meet and all I had to do was find NyanNyan by the description of some cosplay.
Sounds easy enough. I walked up to a group of people and said “Hello are you expecting to meet up with someone.” Turns out it wasn’t NyanNyan and they weren’t expecting anyone. I walked away with a smile but it was emabarrassing for me. Well I’m laughing about it now so it’s not all bad.
I spent the remainder of the day at Supanova, an anime and pop culture convention in Melbourne. It was fun and I hoarded some more anime loot. This is the second time in the last month I’ve spent a full day out and come home to a pile of comments. So thank you guys I appricaite that a lot.
So I got an email a while back stating that I’d been selected to participate in the 2nd aniblog tourney. Now I’m not a very competitive person especially not on a personal level. I’m okay with groups or teams but one on one is tough for me so initially I was a bit worried about entering a huge public contest like the aniblog tourney. Now I’m a bit excited to see how everything turns out and see how far I can get. My first opponent is a Ephemeral Dreamer, a blog I knew about before the Tourney and read on occasion. He’s been around twice as long as me so he’s got the upper hand on me but oh well. The poll to decide who you like to read more between Ephemeral Dreamer and myself opens on the 17th of April and will be open for 48 hours. I encourage you to all vote for your favorite blogs as not only does it help decide a winner but it brings more traffic to all the smaller blogs.
I can’t wait to start voting for the blogs I like. I hope some of us can make it past the first round. Good luck to everyone involved.
