One Year of Anime Blogging and Still Walking

Exactly one year ago I took my very first steps into the anime blogosphere as a blogger. And as of today, dear readers, Anime Viking has reached its first year.

When I first started blogging, I never believed that I would actually manage to keep it up for one whole year. It takes a lot of dedication to blog, especially if you, like me, also study. But here I am, alive and kicking, having a whole new year of blogging to look forward to. The best part is that I have no intention to stop.

You see, blogging is a whole lot of fun, despite having its share of tough moments (e.g. lack of ideas). But without the anime and blogging community, I certainly would have stopped blogging since long ago. With the risk of sounding cheesy, it is thanks to you guys I enjoy this as much as I do.

So I would like to take this moment to thank all of you who reads Anime Viking or are only there on Twitter fooling around with me.

Thank you so much!

Let us make this new year an even better one than the last!

    Wow time sure flies. Congratulations for keeping it together for a full year. I actually remember visiting your blog when it had less then five post and it’s hard to believe it’s been a full year since then. (Sorry for being an infrequent commenter)

      Indeed it does. I was six months old only a day ago! At least, that is how it feels like. Is it now I enter the feared “second year death of blogging”, or is that the next one?

      And seriously, don’t worry about being infrequent. No one is forcing you 😛

      Thanks for reading!
