1,000 Follows!

I’m not normally one to celebrate blog anniversaries, or to delve too deeply into my blog’s stats or analytics. I’m also well aware that such stats can be fairly misleading – as anyone else with a blog on any topic could tell you, a Follow doesn’t necessarily amount to reader engagement, especially after a certain amount of years when a lot of people have moved on in all but nominal subscription.

Regardless, I’d like to give a shout-out who’s ever liked or commented, followed or subscribed, or otherwise supported Otaku Lounge since its founding in 2013. I’ve learned a lot, tried to create interesting and well-written posts, and done my best to engage in turn with everyone who’s been a part of the journey. I hope to continue to do so for many years to come.

So to consistent commenters and low-profile lurkers alike, subscribers both old and new, and everyone who’s ever been involved in any way with Otaku Lounge, either big or small:

Thank you!

    1. Thank you! I admit I did used to pay some attention towards those things, particularly in the first year or so. But eventually I got tired of it, and figured I’d enjoy blogging a lot more without overthinking or over analyzing it.

  1. Congrats on 1000 followers. Whatever that number means, it’s accumulated history. So you started out in the year that gave us The Eccentric Family and Kyousogiga (the TV series). A good year for great anime.

    I’ve been reading sporadically at least since 2014, but back at the time I was a forum guy. Discussions have moved away from forums and onto blogs (and probably twitter) since then. Ah, history.

    1. Thank you. 🙂

      I admit, my Twitter game is virtually non-existent. I have a Twitter, but I don’t use it much other than to send out (automated) updates for whenever I post a new blog entry.


    1. Thanks!

      I don’t think I do anything special or different to anyone else. I just try to post reasonably consistently, reply to comments, and read/comment on other peoples’ blog posts on similar topics. Even so, I didn’t gain this many followers quickly – so far, Otaku Lounge has been around for about 5 years, so it’s very much been a gradual, long-term kind of thing.
