Hi everyone! My name is Megan, and welcome to my blog. If you’re reading this, it means that somehow, amidst all of the chaos that we know as the internet, something brought you here. Maybe you’re a friend of mine who I’ve told about this blog, maybe you follow me on social media and love books, manga, movies, and anime like I do, or maybe — and this time with LOTS of emphasis on the maybe — I finally figured out how Google AdWords works and I managed to pop up on your internet search. I seriously doubt it’s the last one but I guess ya never know.
Anyways, I guess I should start by explaining what this blog is all about. This reason is twofold, so let’s take this all one step at a time. First, I love fiction. All my life, I’ve enjoyed reading novels and manga, watching movies and tv shows, and seeing plays. When I was little, I told myself that I’d one day go to university to study literature and become a novelist. At times, I even find myself writing stories in my head and typing up quick blurbs in the notes app on my phone. However, despite having this dream of writing a novel since I was a little girl, I decided to study computer science when I finally made it into my dream university. I realize that there is almost no correlation between wanting to be a novelist and studying computer science, but because of various circumstances, this is the career path that I have found myself on. Regardless of my academic life, one thing that hasn’t changed is my love for all things fiction, and because of that, I have decided to create a blog to share this love with others who have similar interests. My second reason for creating this blog is simple, and at first, it may sound a bit snobby, but PLEASE hear me out: I need a job. During the COVID-19 pandemic, I was fortunate enough to acquire a work-from-home part-time position through my university, but as the pandemic comes to an end (thankfully), the job that I have been doing for the past year is no longer needed, and my income has dropped significantly. In my search for a new part-time position, I stumbled across a web design job, and their application requirement said “We want you to create your own website so we can see your skills!!!!”. After reading this, my mind immediately went “NOW IS MY CHANCE!” I realized that if this blog of mine were to fail significantly (and I really hope that it doesn’t) then I will at the very least be able to play off my embarrassment by saying “Oh, I simply created it for a job position hahaha” (unless those teasing me have read this post… if that’s the case then I guess I’m a bit screwed lol).
So, now you know a bit about me, and why I am here writing this blog. I hope to write a lot about the things I love. Recently, I’ve been VERY into shoujo manga (and shounen, josei, and seinen manga), and most of the ones I am reading currently update on a monthly basis, so I will definitely do my very best to upload my thoughts on new chapters and feel free to share your thoughts too in the comments. My goal is to upload a new post every weekend. I look forward to seeing you all in my next post!
If you took the time to read all of this, leave a like and comment below your favorite novel or manga + any recommendations that you have for me (: Also, feel free to share my blog with others!!!
