This is a different sort of post that I have for you guys today, because instead of talking about a drama or a movie, I’ll be talking about a VPN service – that helps me get my drama game on, heh.
Today, I’ll be talking about NordVPN, the service that I personally use to get my grabby hands on as many of the drama offerings out there, as possible.
FULL DISCLOSURE: I paid for my NordVPN subscription with my own money.
HOWEVER! If you use my affiliate link to purchase your own subscription, you’ll get to enjoy up to 60% off * your subscription, AND, this will also give me a modest commission, at no extra cost to you, which helps to allow me to keep on doing what I love, here on the blog. Win-win! 😃
* This used to say 73%, but because NordVPN’s changed the way it calculates the discount, it now says 60%. BUT, it’s the same great price, starting from US$3.29 a month!
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).
This is becoming a bit of A Thing on the blog, but just in case you didn’t know, every so often, I like to cover a mini series as a bonus on Patreon, with the notes for the first 3 episodes made available to everyone, and here’s the announcement for the next bonus show I’ll be covering!
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! 😀
