The Sunshine Blogger Award Challenge

I’ve been nominated for the Sunshine Blogger Award by Sonatano1 of Everything is bad for you, thanks. As part of being nominated, the recipient answers the eleven questions they’re given from the nominator. I will try to answer the question to the best of my ability. Here we go:

1) What’s your favorite or most-used medium for entertainment? I would have to say video games.

2) What character in a work of fiction would you inhabit and why?  (Assuming you’re experiencing the entire storyline of the game/novel/film/whatever as this character.) Probably Monkey D. Luffy, he’s been through some hard times, but I would love the adventure.

3) What work would you wipe all memories of from your brain if you could so that you could experience it all over again? Naruto.

4) What’s the most annoying trend occurring in your favorite medium today? Online multiplayer games. I like the solo campaign.

5) What’s the most promising trend occurring in your favorite medium today? Free to play. I know there can be problems, but with so many good games having so be free would help.

6) How much or how little romance do you like in your games/films/novels/etc.? Very little.

7) If you had to be the ruler of one country in any work of fiction, which one would you pick? Hyizuru from Attack on Titan. Clear I’m a glutton for punishment.

8) Do you think virtual reality will improve anytime in the near future to the extent that it’s actually worth using?  Or are we already at that point? I don’t think technology is ever at it’s peak. VR seems to still be in it’s infancy.

9) I’ve heard people say that the novel is a dying form of art and that changes in attention span length and the constant multitasking our generation is involved in will make them obsolete.  If you have an opinion on that matter, do you agree or disagree? If a “novel” requires a psychical book then, yes.

10) Are you optimistic about the future of the human race? Yes, we’ll get it together eventually.

11) Cake or pie?  (There’s only one right answer.) CAKE.


Now the hard part, coming up with 11 questions and nominations:

  1. What’s your favorite anime genre. Why?
  2. What’s your favorite series in that genre?
  3. How often do you blog?
  4. What aspect of your blog do you love the most?
  5. What advice would you give a new blogger?
  6. What anime/manga series are you looking forward to?
  7. Which is worst, anime video games or movies?
  8. Which video game universe would you like to visit?
  9. Which manga series would you like to see become an anime?
  10. What’s your most popular post? Why do you think that is?

Blogger Recognition Award

I would like to thank AYR GALAXY for nominating me for the Blogger Recognition Award. I always appreciated being acknowledge for my blogging.

img_0102


 

Rules:

  1. Write a post explaining why you started blogging along with a few tips.
  2. Nominate some of your fellow bloggers.
  3. Comment on their blogs to let them know you’ve nominated them.

 

Why I started blogging:

A few years ago I was in a college class for writing. During the course of that class, we discussed the fact that blogging is becoming increasingly important. Part of the class requirement was to create your own blog on any topic and write a few blog posts. After this experience, I was inspired to create my own blog. I was under the false impression that blogging required money or some professional writing experience.

During that summer, I decided to finally give blogging a chance. I’ll admit the first few months I had only a few viewers. However, I started to gain more and the interaction was great. So far I’ve managed to increase my viewers for the two years I’ve been blogging. Hopefully, I will continue that trend for the foreseeable future.

Some tips:

  1. Blog about what you know. It’s easier to write about what you love.
  2. Try to be consistent. Blog on the same days if possible.
  3. Work on grammar. Your writing will become more effective.
  4. Follow other blogs you like. They may follow you in return.
  5. Try to engage on others blogs. Comment and Like. They might return the favor.
  6. Reblog. Don’t do it too much (This blog is about your opinion) but, occasionally reblog a post that interests you and might do the same for your readers.

And the nominees are:
