Some of my favourite openings!

I’ve probably mentioned it before, but in case you didn’t know, I don’t generally give much attention to openings. I know there are all sorts, and some are really good, but sometimes I just don’t want to spend the time focusing on them, you know?

But as I said, some are really great.
Which is why I’ll cover some of my favourites here!

Yomu Reads More Fan Mail

You know, it’s been a while since I’ve read some of my fan mail.
It’s just been piling up. I really do feel guilty about not responding.

I’m sure the only reason you’re writing in is for a shot at being featured on the blog in the first place!!

It’s tough being popular, but we’ll get through this, together!

How To: Write a WordPress Post Using the Gutenberg Block Editor

It feels like it’s time for another post on the “new” WordPress post editor: Gutenberg.

I’ve written about Gutenberg several times before (first this, then this). At first, I forced myself to try it due to the various benefits that had been told to me by Lynn “The Early Adopter” Sheridan, AKA The Otaku Author.

It’s been a hotbed of criticism from other bloggers, but I feel like maybe some other bloggers haven’t taken the time to learn how to really make use of the block editor’s features when it comes to constructing a post. And so, I’ll go over how I use the editor to make posts in what I consider to be a very easy and convenient way.

The Futility of Gatekeeping in Anime and Criticism of it.

All right, I admit, I’ve read one too many posts complaining about gatekeeping in anime. And so instead of leaving a comment that could be construed as disrespectful or whatever, I decided to publish my thoughts on the topic here on my own blog.

If any of you have written about gatekeeping before, either via blog post or Twitter, please understand that this isn’t a personal response to any of you individually. This is more of a situation where I’ve been reading the same complaints for several years now and have formed my own opinion on the ordeal.
