If you asked my opinions on blogs in general one year prior, I probably would have made a reply somewhere along the lines of “frivolous barf-buckets of unwanted opinions and irrelevant rants”. Fortunately, personal experiences have intervened since then, and as I signed up on Blogger today, I possess a markedly different opinion. I now see the pleasure in sharing work one is passionate and proud of. I now see the benefit in regular exercises in writing. And I now see the potential and need of clear, informative reviews in English about certain items within my own interests.
Although this is still very much in the tentative stage, I intend to accomplish two things with this blog:
- To introduce my hobbies to the audience and offer helpful and concise information on the Japanese plamos, toys and figures within my possession via weekly reviews.
- To post news and links of other reviews that may be of interest to my intended audience on a daily basis. I plan to do this after producing around 4-5 reviews.
Whether or not I can actually follow my conviction, I am uncertain. But I end this post with positive conviction. Expect the first review to be posted this weekend.
Update (1/9/2010): Laughing at myself right now — daily updates? What was I thinking?
