New Look, New you – random update

Apropos of nothing, decided to change the blog’s theme. Didn’t like the wrap around text of the old theme & wanted something with a bit more space & definition.

Unfortunately with WordPress, to get the good stuff you really need to pay & since am poor, just went with a nice, clean free theme.

Have more updates coming, hopefully written up over the Easter weekend, encompassing some recently ended anime series, some TCG stuff & an anime movie review or two.

So, don’t forget to donate & to leave some comments on our articles.

In the meantime, here’s Tsumiki:

A gentle reminder (that I’m not above begging) – random: donations

Because I am a post-grad student making minimum money, I need help in being able to both acquire items for review & survive day by day.

So, to that end, am just reminding my loyal (& not so loyal) readers that I have a donation function enabled in the widget menu to your right.

By donating a dollar or two, you can help me get through the week.

To donate, use the Paypal buttons on the right or click the below link.

Tweaks, Changes & Updates (plus possible begging for donation)

Since am reaching the end of my Masters work & our other contributors are busy, I thought it was time to add a few tweaks to the blog as well as add a new category for reviews & articles.

The latest section is on Trading Card Games (TCG) -which are also referred to as Collectable Card Games.

I’m doing this because I recently got back into playing Magic: The Gathering & Yu-Gi-Oh as well as starting slightly more obscure games like Weiβ Schwarz (Weiss Schwarz -German for White & Black). Soon I’ll be moving into Pokemon TCG & other series like Cardfight!! Vanguard & Future Card BuddyFight because there are enough people were I live who play it regularly. Also want to get WIXOSS cards but they’re still only available in Japanese (but seem to be popular over there).

This will move into reviews of the various TGC, their various flavours/decks/series as well as talking about the different decks & play styles out there. This will lead into recording How To Play guides with other players as well as filming the different types of matches.

For that I was considering setting up either a Patron or other similar donation system so I can afford to buy new cards/decks/booster packs as well as improve software & equipment to record things. I set up a PayPal donation button on the side widget if you care to donate either $1 of $5 USD to me. Every little helps really (since am living hand-to-mouth being a post-grad student & all).

I was also thinking of using this donation system to shift the blog from the free version to the full paid subscription model so can host videos & other things as well as have a customised domain name.

Also: if you have any old TCG stuff lying around that you’re happy to get rid of, please let us know & we’ll arrange compensation & postage stuff.

If any of my readers are interested in helping with this, please leave a comment below.

I’ll also be posting more retro reviews & hopefully finishing up my various manga/comic reviews as well. This is mainly so I can publish the half finish stuff that I have sitting around but also to flesh out the blogs content more.

As always, thanks for reading this tiny corner of the Net’s Geekdom & for your current & future support. Will try to get more regular updates from now on.
