Those of you who read my Sailor Moon or Noragami post this week already know this, but Station Management (read: my own stubborn work ethic) accepted my time off request, so I’m taking my very first blogging break! There won’t be any WordPress posts for a solid week, although I do still have some goodies queued up on the ol’ Tumblr to keep you entertained.
While I’m out, I figured I’d take this downtime to talk about something I’ve been considering for a while, and give everyone a chance to weigh in.
As much as I love blogging about anime, it’s by no means my only interest, and I’ve been getting the serious itch to set my nerd flag down in other geeky territories as of late. I started doing the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D recaps on The Mary Sue to sort of test the waters, and they’re pretty nice waters, so I’m thinking of semi-gradually expanding The Josei Next Door into a Friendly Neighborhood “Anime and More” Blog. Anime would still be my primary focus and you’d still get most of the reviews you get now—you’d just get other fun stuff mixed in there, too.
Thing is, I don’t want to drive any of you lovely readers away, so I figured I’d offer everyone the chance to weigh in on this decision and help guide the direction of the blog. This poll is by no means binding, but I am curious to get a feel for what you’d be interested in seeing here at JND, and intend to take that into account as we move forward. So please take a look at the options below and vote for as many topics that tickle your fancy:
*I wouldn’t enter “video games” unless you reeeeeally want endless posts about Dragon Age. I don’t game very much, sorry!
Thanks so much for your feedback and just generally being awesome people, and I’ll talk to you all again when I get back from my week of fun in the sun!
