Hello everyone! I hope you’re having a lovely weekend. It’s another bank holiday here in the UK, so I have yet another three-day weekend, which is exciting. I’m also going on holiday next month, which is even more exciting!
In the meantime, though, it’s business as usual around here as always, with the usual mix of modern and retro games with a hint, just a whiff, of sexy. And possibly gorilla.
G’day folks, and happy Easter! I hope you’re all having a suitably pleasant day, filled with however you choose to celebrate, if at all.
I write this after a delicious roast lamb lunch, and although the wife and I are still technically dieting, I’m pretty sure we can find a bit of room for some chocolate later. It’s what the Lord would have wanted.
Anyway! Let’s crack on with our usual rundown of what you might have missed this week, shall we?
Hi everyone, just a quickie for a now — a full article is coming later today, but I wanted to bring this up while it was fresh in my mind!
MoeGamer has kind of stood by itself for a while as I wanted it to be a self-contained site that people could refer to in order to find out information on Japanese games and visual novels. Indeed, that’s not going to change at all — the All Games page is growing on pretty much a daily basis and you’ll hopefully have noticed I have been very good about creating new Hub Pages for games as and when I bring them up!
However, just recently I’ve been making a bit more of an effort to engage with the broader WordPress community and have encountered some thoroughly lovely people, one of whom is Irina from the wonderfully titled I Drink and Watch Anime, a blog about, among other things, anime and drinking games you can play while enjoying it. Well, obviously.
I bring up Irina and her blog specifically because she’s making efforts to help newer anime bloggers who are just getting started to meet the broader community and perhaps make some new friends, and that’s something I’d very much like to support — particularly as there’s a lot of crossover between enthusiasm for anime and a fondness for Japanese video games and visual novels. Also speaking purely selfishly, it may also be a great opportunity for me to meet some new people who share some interests, too — and I hope it doesn’t sound too arrogant of me to say that they may find something of interest here on MoeGamer too.
If you’re a new anime or manga blogger and want to take your first steps into a very friendly and welcoming community — or just want to find some cool new blogs to read! — I encourage you to stop by Irina’s post here and get your own personal Blogwarming Party started!
Thank you for your time, dear reader. Normal business will resume later today — and expect more Community posts like this alongside the site’s main articles in the near future!
