Life Update: Mystery Disappearance

As a forewarning, this post is under “Life” Category and pretty much a blog about my life. If you’re not interested feel free to scroll on by :)

So yeah, 2021 was really cool for the website because for almost 9 straight months I updated every single week. Which is definitely a new achievement for me. I was “officially” diagnosed with ADHD and started medication which really helped in a lot of areas of my life! I have known I’ve had ADHD for around 8 years but never wanted to bother with meds, but they have been life-changing!

The mystery of my disappearance: I’m pregnant! I’m actually 18 weeks pregnant expecting my first child at the end of May. On top of pregnancy being really difficult, I’m also off my ADHD medication. Without my meds and all of the pregnancy symptoms I’ve been running on one brain cell and have been miserable. Everyone makes pregnancy look so easy and fun, it’s not.

Don’t get me wrong, we absolutely planned for this baby and I’m excited. I can’t wait to HAVE a baby, but HAVING a baby has been a pain. XD

The past few weeks my head has finally started to clear up and I’m feeling a lot better mentally. I’m hoping in the new year I’ll be able to start some more frequent reviews. I’m thinking once or twice a month. We will see what happens when the baby comes.

Thank you to everyone who continues to use my site, I really look forward to continuing along with you all! Hope you all continue to stay safe and healthy.

XOXO Kitteh

Sister Site Shoujo Henshin

New Sister Site: Shoujo Henshin

I just wanted to take some time out to promote a new shoujo review website Shoujo Henshin. I met the owner on R/Shoujo and offered to help them out with a promo.

This cute site is everything shoujo:

  • Volume by volume reviews
  • Shoujo Releases
  • Top Shoujo Lists
  • and more!

My goal with this website has always been to promote shoujo manga! I’m always happy to support other likeminded friends!

Life Update: I’ve been Busy

For those that are new I occasionally continue to post about my life as it’s the closest thing I can commit to that’s a journal. I do recognize no one comes here for it so you can skip over this if you’re already bored!

I’m so sorry I’ve been gone an entire season. More people are reading manga now with the lock down and I haven’t stopped.

This fall I ended up getting married and buying my first home! Very exciting and time consuming stuff. Especially during a pandemic. With my house unpacked I’m very excited for new reviews in the coming year.

With all that said, despite my absence this website now averages 13k visits a month! I am over the moon that this website, my 10+ year pet project, has become so popular. It also makes me feel like more people than ever are reading Shoujo Manga!

As always please feel free to let me know in the comments what your favourite genre is or if theres a series you think I should review! I also frequent r/shoujo on reddit as “Ham” and I’m always down to connect!

I’m hoping you all have managed to hang in there this year. I know it’s been difficult beyond measure. Sending you all love and support for this coming year in 2021!

I just wanted to say I love how popular the website has become in the past year due to my SEO efforts. I love that I’m reaching more people and making shoujo manga easier to find for so many people! I know hardly anyone ends up on the main page, let alone reads my life posts, but just know I’m so proud of this project.

I’m sorry posts haven’t been as consistent, I know it’s pretty normal for the past ten years of the website but you would think with Canada locked down I would have more spare time. Unfortunately I don’t, I’m still working 40 hrs a week from home which isn’t optimal but it’s the best shot we’ve got. I’m also mildly addicted to Animal Crossing?

I have friends and family I want to see, but friends and family I want to protect. Stay inside! Read manga!

I hope to have more reviews coming up. Even if I I’m not reviewing I’m ALWAYS reading manga so lots more to come. Lots of love everyone, stay safe!

Life Update: I Moved

I know not everyone reads the life updates but I do enjoy going back and reading them. I had a good streak going and disappeared for over two months! Story is, I moved!

It was quite sudden my boyfriend went to an interview two towns over on a Friday in January. Started on the Monday and by Tuesday we realized we needed to move!

Moving was a whirlwind of finding a place, viewing it, applying, and then packing up our lives and actually moving. I have hands down the best friends in the world as the move went so well.

The good news is I’m finally moved in and relaxed and ready to continuing updating the website. I have continued to read in my down time so I have quite a few series to review.

To all new guests: Welcome! To all old friends thank you for supporting this hobby of mine.
