It’s time for the first blog anniversary! The blog was founded on August 28, 2011 when I suddenly decided I want to be able to scream “HEY I’VE A BLOG!” on the Internet to flex my e-peen and pretend I’m a somebody in the VN/eroge scene since there are so few VN blogs compared to let’s say, anime ones. To tell the truth, that remains the main reason I’m maintaining this blog. Yeah, I’m just a selfish bastard. But if I happened to help anyone in my quest for e-peen, then all the better!
Aero here. I have to say that I’m surprised that we keep this thing alive for 1 year. No promises for next year though =p
If you’re one of the few unfortunate souls who have followed the blog from its inception, you may have noticed the gradual deterioration of the seriousness/quality of my writing as I refined(?) my writing style slowly realizing I simply don’t enjoy writing with a straight face nor am I the analytical type to begin with. So I thought to myself, instead of merely mimicking the styles of the other VN blogs, why don’t I develop one of my own! (I know we’ve all heard that one before). And from that comes the crudely written posts filled with dry humor that has absolutely no right to be funny. But if you get even as little as a halfway grin out of them, I’m content; I like lighting up people lives however much I can. Especially the lives of imoutos and lolis.
We really need something on the blog to point out that we aren’t serious writers. I know my writing sucks pretty bad, and most of the time I write in such a way to make it SEEM like I know what I’m talking about >___>. But I would like to think that I’ve helped a small handful of people out there ^^.
And in my quest for e-peen, I got into an absurdly long discussion in my Noble Works review with Aero that was at first about the game itself which evolved into a correspondence about VN’s in general. Then after countless e-mails that has cut deeply into both of our eroge playing times, I finally coerced him into blogging with me on this blog so that I can be even lazier and post less while giving the blog the illusion of it being more active than it actually is (don’t tell him that though). And with the publication of his ATLAS guide, the blog now has much more traffic than it deserves. Ahh, the power of the only useful post on this blog!
Haha those were the days ^^. I can’t remember how I stumbled on this blog back in the day, I just remember that I wasn’t really that open as an ero-gamer back then. Since joining the blog I’ve been SOMEWHAT more active, but not really. Also Aedes, when you ‘coerced’ me into writing for the blog, you overlooked the fact that I’m pretty lazy as well…so not much difference in the productivity.
I’m pretty surprised how much traffic my ATLAS guide has brought to the blog. What started off as a small project to help some random guy I met on a manga site span out of control into some insanely huge thing.
Currently, I’ve no grand plans for the blog other than using it as a base to capture the lolimoutos of the world; the blog will still be a personal outlet for ramblings about them porn games otherwise known as eroge/nukige/VN. I know I’ve been slipping from my stated weekly schedule since I’ve been lazy and there hasn’t been much to write about. Hence, I’m updating the schedule to “Whenever I feel like it”. But I’ll still try for weekly updates if I can.
I feel that I’m mostly here to give viewers a break from the Imouto and NSFW stuff that Aedes usually posts =3. Aside from that, I plan to keep updating my ATLAS guide into the unforeseeable future. I just hope that my efforts can help some of the noobs out there XD.
Okay, I’ve rant on in these walls of text for far too long. Needless to say, you are always more than welcome to leave any feedback regarding what we should do better, different, more, less, etc. Finally, thank you all for putting up with this embarrassingly amateurish writing for this past year. We can’t guarantee grammatical perfection nor can we guarantee you’ll always like what you see here, but here is to another year of lolimouto loving!
Many thanks reading our random nonsense ^^. Hope you guys will continue to support us in the future!
Also, what the hell is a rant?
Speaking of which, what better way to celebrate the anniversary than true happiness made of love, imouto flavored.
