Happy 9th!!

Time flies, my friends!!

I can’t believe that I’ve been running this blog for 9 years now(!!) – that’s an eternity in blogging years, isn’t it?!?

Exactly 9 years ago today, I made the completely spur-of-the-moment decision to try my hand at drama blogging. What a journey that’s turned out to be! (You can read more about how I started the blog in last year’s blogoversary post here!)

Since we’re celebrating the blog’s 9th year of existence, I thought it’d be fun to share 9 random blog-related things with you guys – with one bonus random personal factoid (just coz I can, heh).

Announcement: My Mister & Someday Or One Day Group Watches!

Time really flies; we are already getting ready to wrap up our group watches of Stranger (Secret Forest) and Secret Love Affair!

Thanks to everyone who’s been following along, and especially to those of you who’ve taken the time to share your thoughts on the various episodes, as we’ve watched them. You’ve made the group watches richer and more meaningful, with your sharing and your presence. I truly appreciate you! ❤️

If you recall, we’d mapped out the group watches which would replace this current cycle, back when I’d first run the poll. Now, it’s time to get into gear, for our group watches of My Mister and Someday or One Day, starting next week!

Announcement: Upcoming Group Watches!

Thanks to everyone who voted in the poll; 552 votes were cast by 289 voters, and Stranger / Secret Forest came out on top, with 119 votes! Looks like I will finally watch Stranger, after putting it off for so long, heh.

At the same time, some of you have let me know that the poll results were showing inaccurately for you, in terms of the shows that you voted for. I do want to make sure that the group watch features shows that you guys actually want to watch, so I’ve taken the various opinions raised in the comments into consideration, in mapping out a solution that I hope will satisfy most voters.

I did also promise Ele, that I’d use my Editor’s Choice to balance things out, if our winning show doesn’t feature a romance, because it’s true that we’re due for some romance, in our group watch.

I really hope you guys like the solution that I’ve come up with.

Group Watch: Poll!

Thanks everyone, for your many suggestions, thoughts and contributions on the Group Watch brainstorm!

Lots of worthy titles were floated, and as promised, I sifted through all of them, and shortlisted the most popular titles for this poll. I also made the executive decision to add 2 wild cards into the mix, which you’ll see in a bit. 😉

Except for Hikaru no Go, Mother and Stranger, I’ve seen the other shortlisted dramas, and I do believe they are each solidly worthy of your drama hours.

Announcement: Breakup Probation, A Week episode notes!

Previously, I covered Scripting Your Destiny and Mad For Each Other, so you can check out those bonus notes too, if you’d like.

Announcement: Kill Me, Heal Me Group Watch!

Remember how we voted for our group watches 2 months ago, you guys?

Well, time has flown by, and while our Nirvana in Fire group watch is still on-going (so rich, and so meaty! Do join us, if you can!), we have now completed our group watch of the very breezy and very fun My Girlfriend is a Gumiho.

..Which means it’s time to announce the start of our Kill Me, Heal Me group watch, which was the second Editor’s Choice pick that I made. Here are all the details you might need!

Announcement: Mad For Each Other episode notes!

You guys might remember that a couple of months ago, I announced episode notes for Scripting Your Destiny for my patrons on Patreon, with the notes for the first 3 episodes made available to everyone.

Well, that was pretty fun, I thought, so when Mad For Each Other showed up, and enjoyed so much positive buzz among you guys, I thought I’d do it again! 😃

Whee~!

Announcement: New commenting system!

Hey everyone,

As you can tell from this post’s title, I’ve switched to a new commenting system for the blog, and I’m hopeful that this will make conversations on the blog a lot more fun to navigate!

Also, this feels timely, since a number of you let me know that the edit button for comments has stopped appearing for you. Not to worry, my friends! This new commenting system has a built-in editing feature, so you’ll be able to edit your comments for up to 15 minutes after posting them, just like the previous one.

The new commenting system is fairly easy to navigate instinctively, but I thought I’d highlight a couple of things, just to make it even easier for everyone.
