I’m happy to say that this blogs views and visitors continue to grow every year but I don’t think that’s sustainable. This year I decided to use Google AdSense, it was expensive but did increase my blogs reach. However, the decline in comments and likes is disappointing. I’m not sure what I can do to change that but it might help to comment on others blogs. I have become lazy and largely stopped doing that.

While I’ll continue doing reviews I think that limits my blog. So I will plan on trying new types of content: more lists, explainers, opinions, more long form content, particularly regarding manga. I have stated that I prefer anime to manga so I usually focus on the former more. In order to include more manga I will exclusively review them in volumes.

So how was your 2022? Any blogging tips? Is there a type of anime blogging content you might want to see? Let me know.

Happy New Years. Hopefully 2023 will be better than 2022.

  1. Happy New Year! Your plans for adding more variety into your content sounds really good! Wow, your blog’s stats look very impressive/intimidating! My wee little blog has gotten like 1/40th the amount of traffic. Lol! Let’s both work hard towards our blogging goals in the new year!

  2. With more views coming from Google you’re likely to see less comments and likes per view. That’s mostly going to come from WordPress users. Obviously, it’s something to keep trying for, but don’t worry too much. I find you need to comment and like more to get more back, which is a lot of time and work in itself.

    The more posts you have the more views you should get. Once you’ve published a post it had the potential to be discovered by someone every day. Keep doing what you’re doing and if you can expand what you’re doing you may find more readers, however, it’s also good to have a niche.

    Happy New Year!

    1. Thank you for the advice, it never occurred to me that most of my comments come from WordPress but it makes sense. I appreciate it.

      Happy New Year.

  3. Happy New Year! Yeah pretty much what Lynn said in regards to the likes and comments. Think of the extra views as a bonus since Google gets you further reach but without a WordPress account you wouldn’t get the likes/comments that come along with it.

    As a small design thing, have you considered maybe switching your blog design? I mostly tend to be online at night and I would say it can be a little hard to read the text at times since the color tends to blend in with the grey backdrop. Might just be a me thing though and I just make my computer a little brighter when reading.

    Those numbers are still really good overall and you’ve got a positive trend going on all other stats which is great. Look forward to seeing your posts in this year!
