Right before I hit the 20 month mark (that’ll be 1 year and 8 months for those of you who can’t be bothered to do arithmetic), I received a notification which claimed that I hit 500 followers.
So many other bloggers have tons more followers than me, of course, but I’m happy that The Lily Garden reached this milestone. That means ~500 people are looking at my stuff from time to time. That’s honestly astounding. Thank you all for supporting me and bothering to click on a half-baked post written by yours truly every so often.
That tilde sign is there, by the way, because I don’t think “Topless Waiters in Melbourne” actually care(s) to read my thoughts on anime, visual novels, and manga. Or maybe he/she/they does/do and he/she/they is/are just trying to tell me how he/she/they is/are disappointed that I’m not talking enough about yuri despite the fact that I run a blog called The Lily Garden. Wow, he/she/they is/are actually critical yet reasonable, then. Thank you, “Topless Waiters in Melbourne.” You’re alright for not being an actual person.
Anyways, I wanted to turn this particular occasion into an opportunity for interaction and stuff. For an entire week, I’ll be open to making “Top 5 lists” based on the topic suggestions you leave in the comments section of this blog post. I’ll stop taking suggestions after January 25th, 2018 11:59 PM PST (so that’ll be 1/25/2018 or 25/1/2018 if you live in a country that actually follows logic). I’ll be sure to give your blog, Twitter, etc a shout-out if you’d like, too, should I choose to use your suggestion.
I don’t know if anyone would like to participate or if this comment section is going to be completely barren, to be honest. This is literally an idea I came up with less than 10 minutes ago while I was staring at the image with the triple-digit number near the top of this post, so this random thought may completely flop. If no one wants to suggest anything, then that’s okay, too. I’ve had my fair share of awkward one-night-stands before so I know how to roll with rejection. I-It’ll be fine and I won’t cry!
I’m also going to be open to doing collabs again! I have
one that’s going to be published on Friday and one that’s currently under development, but I’m always interested in working with more of you fine folk. Maybe I’m getting motivated by seeing Irina, Astral Gemini, Leap250, and The Pantless Anime Blogger conduct their Winter 2018 Anime Games (you should really go check out their little competition, by the way). Perhaps reading about how Scott is lining up the calendar with a myriad of collabs got me feeling fired up. I’m honestly not sure. At any rate, please look forward to his upcoming collab posts, too.
And feel free to contact me if you’re down to rumble with Remy. I promise I’ll try to show more initiative when it comes to topic suggestions since I’ve been allowing my partners to take the lead in that regard and that’s a scary thought.
That’s all, folks.
Thanks for reading and I hope you all continue to bless The Lily Garden with curious clicks and sincere comments. Insincere comments are welcome, too.
(If you seriously don’t want to bother with arithmetic for the rest of your life, then please hire me and I’ll gladly do that for you)
