The Madman behind this blog

6 month blogoversary and 100 followers AYYYYY~


Hi everyone!

It’s… finally here? Hahaha-
I reached my 100 followers here on WordPress and it’s my 6 month blogoversary!


I should’ve been doing some sort of giveaway, as many other bloggers do when they hit their milestones, but, unfortunately, I live in a country where it’s difficult to carry out such things without severe ‘damages’ to my wallet, plus I don’t think I’m confident in running one. Maybe later? Plus, let’s be honest, my stats are still not stable, and the feedback is yet to get to the level of even thinking of hosting a giveaway, so I’ll be more considerable and delay that fun part until I feel more confident.


It’s been exactly 6 months since I decided that I want to challenge myself in running a bookish blog in English, and also devote myself into reading more books, as I’ve noticed the enormous decrease of time I dedicate to reading which was one of my initial hobbies.

Well, what can I say… I didn’t really fulfill that ambition of mine, and, as usual for me, I was very hyped at the beginning. I read one book after another, although, of course, not at the speed of other bookworms out there, but I quickly learned not to compare myself to others way too much in terms of amount of books read within specific time period. Plus I frequently have days when I don’t want to do anything but just chill with my favorite music (that’s why I decided to start my K-pop related segment here on the blog), but it slowly grew up to be a reversal back to times when I was basically too lazy to pick a book to read. I know it all sounds gibberish, but most of my actions and decisions depend on my actual mood, and if I’m, for instance, completely into gloominess, no reading will help me there because I will be distracted by the thoughts running through my mind.

Okay, back to my anniversary thingy.
I’m really, really glad I actually started my little blog. Although I stated at the beginning that I would be focusing a lot on talking about Russian books… well, you know that people grow up, and blogs tend to grow up with them as well, so I unintentionally got affected by the international mainstream. It’s hard talking about books in Russian when there are little to no chances for international audience to read them in English language, which means no basement for long discussions.

I’d like to thank every single one out there who visited my blog, who decided to stay with my blog… I might not be as active as I was at the beginning, but I try my best to deliver the most honest opinion on whatever topic I bring up here on my blog. THANK YOU, and I LOVE YOU ALL.

And so to conclude this post, let’s have fun with the newest release by South Korean rap-rock band N.Flying!
