Welcome, weebs, to Animated Observations
Although not for much longer.
Hey friends! I hope you all are doing well. I’ve been enjoying my time off from the blog as a way to recoup my creative energy, but while thinking about things in the future, I’ve made at least one big decision.
The Blog Name
I’ve had The Aniwriter as the name of the blog for about a year and a half now, and its a fine name, at least I think, but unfortunately I’ve just sort of fallen out of favor with it. I have been taking the last couple of days to think of something new, but as of right now I am not definite on anything. Also, if I am being completely honest, I was never really super in love with the name in the first place. It sounded catchy and I needed something new since That Guy Who Writes, the original name of the blog, was kind of generic and not interesting whatsoever.
Anyway, I will hopefully have this sorted out by the time I am done with my break, and I will post another update before the change goes through so that nobody thinks the blog just dissipated.
Another problem that I have had is a lack of confidence in my content. More specifically, I mean the mixing of content. For as much as I enjoy writing poetry and short stories, I have never been sure whether or not keeping them on here with my anime content was a good thing or a bad thing.
As of right now, I am seriously considering, and am leaning towards, creating a new separate blog for my original works while leaving this blog as a way to talk about anime and other entertainment stuff, but again, I will decide officially in the coming weeks.
I know these are big changes, so any comments/advice is certainly invited/welcome. Thank you guys for sticking with me for as long as you have, I do greatly appreciate it. As always, links for support are below.
If you can’t, or just don’t feel like it, no worries. Thank you all for reading, and goodbye, for now, friends!

For you to file in the FWIW folder: I keep my writing efforts separate from my anime efforts. Of course, everyone’s mileage will differ, but I find my anime audience is very different from my fiction audience, and I want to ensure the best experience for both.
So, I have separate blogs!
Also FWIW, I’ve enjoyed your anime content quite a lot, so I (selfishly!) hope you continue.
It’s good to wrestle with these questions. Even cycle refines your vision of yourself, and that’s a good thing!

I put non anime stuff on my blog, but it’s a definite minority (and limited to a subset of my wide range of interests). Nothing wrong with crossing the streams in this instance, but you have to keep in mind what your audience is.
