5 Year Anniversary
Well, damn. 5 years.
I have to say though, I’m not exactly young. Even in blogging, and I’m actually ashamed to say this (because I’m never really good at it), I had been going at it for long enough that I feel I can legit call myself a
shitty veteran. And now, 5 years have passed in the blink of an eye.
Throughout these 5 years, I have seen bloggers come and go — some old bloggers leaving the stage out of the blue, while tears are shed for some bloggers who posted their official retirements. I will be lying if I say I don’t miss my old aniblogging friends. In fact, now that when I’m reminiscing about the old times, I might as well get this off my chest too-since when did the terms “waifu” and “Best Girls” get thrown around so much around the aniblogging and anitwitter circles? Believe it or not, these two terms weren’t even used once during the early days of my blogging. Hell, the anibloggingsphere wasn’t even that meme-y back then. Heh,
kids bloggers these days, they all suck. (Just kidding, you know I love y’all :p)
Sigh… I guess it just means I have grown. I’m a fucking old man even when it comes to blogging. I’m a man who have seen cultures infinitely shifting through the eons of mankind. I’m a blogger who have seen
waifu wars and conflict befalling civilizations all across the globe. I’m a time traveler who have seen mankind ruined by their own damnation. In fact now that when I put all these words together, I realize — I am not a man…
I AM A GOD (of blogging).
All jokes aside, do you guys remember last year when I said I would do something special if I ever reached the 5th year? I actually achieved that milestone now, so here’s that something “special” — I’m going to give you… IT. What? You don’t know what this “IT” is? Well, I’m going to give you something that you crave. I’m going to give you something that you need. I’m going to give you… the gift of Kai. Drink it in maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaan…
…AKA guest posts. Yes, I’m going to give out guest posts. I always appreciate all my viewers and commenters, and this time, to express my gratitude, I decided to reward 5 guest posts to 5 of
these stupid idiots my top commenters.
Before I go on, let me go into a little bit more detail as to how I do this. I will be doing a rank of “Top Commenters of All Time” instead of “Top Recent Commenters”. Now I know there is already a top commenters list in WP Admin, but that’s actually a list of “Top Recent Commenters”, not something I want. Unfortunately, wordpress doesn’t check comments dating all the way back since the blog started, so I had to do this the hard way — checking the comments one by one, which sounds like it would take forever, but actually smoothly doable. What I did is I went to WP Admin, go to “Comments”, sort my comments by author, and check them one by one. Finally, I just noted down the names of commenters who filled up a huge chunk of the list, and checked them separately later to find out the exact number of comments each of them commented.
So… who is the winner? Which one of these gladiators will be winning the big gold belt? These gladiators who have fought tooth and nail against each other to win the absolute honor of having my glamorous, majestic guest posts. Who? I bestow upon you… the list of Kai:
#1: OG-Man – 187 comments
#2: Silvachief – 167 comments
#3: Wieselhead – 153 comments
#4: Nopy – 107 comments
#5: Chikorita157 – 105 comments
Note: You can click their names to see the screenshots for when I’m checking their comments count, just to prove that I’m not pulling these numbers out of my ass.
THERE YOU HAVE IT FOLKS. AS YOU CAN SEE, OG IS THE DLSR HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION OF THE WORLD! DUUUUUU DUUU DUUUU DUUUUUUUUUU *insert shitty John Cena meme*
Moving on from him, we have the runner up Silvachief, followed by Wieselhead, Nopy and Chikorita157 at #3, #4 and #5 respectively, so congrats to you guys as well. Now here’s how I will do this.
- I will be bugging all 5 of you through twitter or e-mail or somewhere to work on the finer details.
- I will do this in a priority order and will be be focusing on one post at a time consecutively. So according to the rank, I will be prioritizing on OG first, then Silvachief, then Wieselhead and so on. I assume this entire process will take around a month.
- If there’s no response for 3 days, then the order for that blogger will be skipped to the bottom (I will still get to you though, don’t worry).
That’s about it, I guess. Once again, a big thank you to all my readers and commenters. Cheers.
P.S: Please don’t mind my shitty wrestling jokes.
