I guess this is the part where I
scream? Anyway, I wrote a guide to the Disney Halloween Recruiters
last year, but I’m writing a new one along with this journal post
because there have been quite a few changes from last year’s show
format. I’ll also run down the basics again for anyone who missed it!
Also, sorry for the varying
photo quality. My phone is really fickle about lighting and a lot of
photos taken later in the day look more washed out because of the
sun. My phone also thinks “zoom” is a synonym for “mosaic”.
Q3: In relation to the lyrics in「JUST ONE DAY」「I want to peacefully fall asleep intoxicated with your sweet scent」what’s your favorite scent?
SUGA A3. Scent of fruits. Not those artificial, but natural things. If there’s someone that I like, I hope that she will have the scent of body lotions instead of perfumes. If there’s too much perfume, my head will hurt. I prefer perfumes that are not too strong.
hello....i've been thinking about making a daily blog for a while now, but i'm just kinda daunted by it and i'm not exactly sure where to start, ahah. (and, honestly, i'm pretty scared)
((I think the thing most people forget about character blogs is that everyone is here for the same reason: they love a thing, they want to have fun with the thing, and they want to make friends with people who also love the thing. I’m gonna give you the same advice I gave to one of my friends just a few minutes ago.
There’s no set of requirements to have a character blog. No one’s gonna quiz you. There’s no bouncer, no gate, no nothing. You don’t have to be a great artist. You don’t have to be a great writer. You don’t have know everything about Jojo from start to finish forwards and backwards. The people that run these blogs aren’t celebrities or idols or whatever. There are some very TALENTED people behind some of these blogs, no doubt, but ultimately they’re just bored Jojo fans, just like you, looking to make friends. The biggest problems people run into happen when they lose sight of that.
Now as for actually STARTING a blog, there’s a few things you can do to get your feet on the ground.
What sort of stuff are you into? Which characters do you like? What sort of content have you seen that inspires you from other blogs? If you know what you like in a blog, that gives you a good starting point for making your own. For example, okay? I love fish and marine biology in real life. That’s not just a Jotaro thing, I really do love the ocean. If you can find a little touch of something that’s special to you, it’ll keep your blog fun and interesting for YOU, and if asks are slow, it’ll still give you something to talk about. Especially if you can tie it in with the character you want to blog as.
Getting followers is actually not too hard. Especially in a community like this. I follow a character blog as soon as I see one, and I know most other people here do too. Character blogs are a little different from main/personal blogs in that If you follow someone, they’ll usually follow back. Also, asking for promos is another thing you can do. It’s not begging for attention, it’s what people do to get their blog SEEN so people know you’re there.
The main thing is to keep doing original posts. This can be art. This can be text. This can be sending asks, answering asks, whatever you want to put on your blog, put it on there. Reblogs are great, and they can help out other blogs that you like and want to support, and if they supplement the kind of content you post on your blog, that’s great too! But the best thing you can do is post your own stuff so people see you’re an active blog. If you bury yourself in too many reblogs that don’t really make sense with your blog, people might not realize you’re a character blog.
Basically, have fun with your blog. It’s not scary. People are usually pretty understanding if you can’t post every day, or if you’re a little nervous when you start. It’s ultimately a lot of fun, and you can meet some fantastic people and even learn some stuff. If you wanna give it a try, there’s not much reason to NOT do it.
Good luck with everything! If you need advice, a promo, a starter ask, or anything else, let me know, and I’ll try to help any way I can!
NOW GET OUT THERE AND DO SOME CHARACTERIN’, FRIEND. :D ))
Even though I’m an avid Soukoku shipper, I’m certain Chuuya wouldn’t have been as popular if he hadn’t been created as an antagonist to Dazai and that makes me sad because I think he’s an amazing character with tons of potential
I just wanna say… I really do hate being so gripey about twd, it’s just so hard to see something that has played such a big part in my life not measuring up to it’s old standards.
The cast is always -so- wonderful, it’s the storytelling itself that gets me, you know?
