Hihi, how are you all?
You’re probably thinking “WHOAAAAAA CLOUDY’S BLOGGING AGAIN!!!” … well, not exactly.
In 2013 I started LittleCloudCuriosity because I wanted to connect with fangirls and fanboys all around the world. At the time, I was in a dark place. I felt lonely. I had no direction. I felt immensely isolated from the world. Blogging brought me out of that dark place. It was my first step out of that tower. Many of you who have followed my recaps, reviews and rants in those years will know that I singlehandedly recapped dozens of anime in every new season. New blog posts would be published daily and for a while, it was both thrilling and addicting to follow the fast paced world of anime. Anime reviews were my life. When I started my Youtube channel, I was even more driven to deliver new content and reach out to more viewers and fans all around the world. At the time, I was in the process of finishing my Bachelor’s degree, moving cities, applying for my Master’s degree and honestly wondering “What the heck am I going to do with my life?” Frankly, I just didn’t have the financial funds or time to continue managing a blog and channel growing faster than I had ever anticipated.
Make no mistake, even during my break from LittleCloudCuriosity, you, the viewers and subscribers have never left my mind…
Fast forward to the spring of 2018 where I have been on general hiatus for QUITE SOME TIME NOW…. I have decided to pick up my fangirl pen again… but not EXACTLY here.
I contemplated starting a side blog or side channel for a very long time. At the time, I could barely manage my main platforms, let alone fathom any side content. Today I am writing to you because I would like to introduce you to a secret blog that I have written and managed (casually), for the last two years or so. I have consolidated two separate lifestyle blogs into one blog called SunriseToStars. Here’s the link.
There, you will find a variety of posts that feature content from other fandoms and hobbies of mine, outside the anime world. I haven’t given up anime. I just write about a lot of other things too. I hope you can understand. Blogging has always been a hobby very close and dear to my heart. My current dream is to become a copywriter or a publisher in a book or magazine company. As such, I have decided to start building a portfolio of sorts, to showcase different writing styles and topics of interest. This doesn’t mean I won’t write about anime. Anime posts will be shuffled into the blog along with Korean drama and Chinese drama reviews, first impressions rants, travel features and song translations.
Cloudy… will you ever go back to your channel?
Honestly… I don’t know. I’ve contemplated taking down my channel. I’ve contemplated continuing my channel. I’ve mulled over these details and over and over again. Making videos was one of the most exciting hobbies I had ever taken up, but it is also time consuming and mentally taxing. I don’t think I quite have the talent for it to be completely honest ^_^”” Here again, is where I ask for your understanding. I’ve grown up a lot since the inception of LittleCloudCuriosity and the priorities in my life have also shifted a lot since I started my Youtube channel. The channel will be there whenever I want to dive into videomaking again. For now, I’m focused on travelling, writing and teaching English in South Korea. I don’t want to make false promises so I’m being honest. I hope you can come along with me on the new blog. After all, I never would have stuck with blogging if it wasn’t for all of you, the readers. SunriseToStars is a new chapter in my life and it’s also a terrifying new step for me because I’ve been on this platform for so long but change is a necessary part of life, sometimes for the better.
To anyone and everyone who has ever read a post or watched a video from CuriousCloudy, I ask for your understanding, I’m sorry, thank you, and from the bottom of my heart… I love you all.
