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.
So you might remember that I mentioned in my April This Month on Patreon post, that I was considering Scripting Your Destiny as a replacement show for She Would Never Know, for coverage on Patreon on the Early Access Tier (US$5).
Well, as it turns out, I had to make a quick change of plans because even though I really liked what I saw when I checked out the Scripting Your Destiny, I hadn’t realized that each episode was only about 20-ish minutes long, making it more of a short format drama thing, rather than a full-fledged drama. Oops. 😅 As you might have seen from my announcement on my She Would Never Know review, I’ve picked Beyond Evil for coverage on the Early Access Tier instead.
At the same time, my enjoyment of the initial episodes of Scripting Your Destiny did give me a fun little idea, which I hope you guys will like. 😃
So, why am I writing this post? Well, Sharra suggested to me on Patreon, that it might be a fun idea to ask you guys to share how you came across the blog, and to maybe tell us a little about yourself, like which country you’re from, and anything else you’d like to tell us.
I thought it was a really fun idea, and so here we are! I’ll go first! 😉
You guys might remember that I recently wondered in my review of web drama Mute, how the writer pairing came about. I was intrigued and rather puzzled at the seemingly random and unusual partnership between Jung Jae Won / One and Kang Han Na, in penning the show, and had invited anyone who might know more, to share more information in the comments.
Huzzah! We now need wonder no longer!
Many thanks to Table122000, who’s enlightened me with the answer. ❤️
You guys. You guys made my heart swell, so much, after my last post, on needing your help to support me and the blog.
I received so many lovely messages from you all, and I can honestly say, I legit choked up. I knew you guys enjoy hanging out here, and that you like the reviews, but I guess I never realized how loved I am. I am blessed to have you all, truly. <3
I wasn’t able to write to everyone who contributed via Paypal, because I wasn’t able to trace every person’s email, so if you sent me a contribution and didn’t hear from me, I just want to say, thank you so much. Your gift means a lot, and I am very grateful for your love. <3
Today, besides saying thank you, I also wanted to talk more about Patreon and help give some clarity over what that’s all about and how it works (now that I’m getting the hang of it), and I also have t-shirts to announce! 😀
So you’ll notice that I’ve allowed ads on the site, for the first time in the 7.5 years that I’ve been here. And yes, I know that it’s not ideal, and not pretty, and creates visual clutter, and honestly, it’s why I’ve stubbornly kept away from having ads, all this time. I like this place to look clean and streamlined and pretty.
..But I’m deciding that I need to compromise now. I’m sorry, guys.
Basically, like so many other people around the world, my ability to work has been affected by the pandemic situation, and, well.. I still need to pay the bills.
This post is to let you know how you can help support the blog and keep it going. (Coz yes, it does cost money to run the blog, and also.. to keep my lights on and stuff.)
