Isolation Reading: Covid-19

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.

{I’m Back}

I’m back. Like a wanderlust fool I have journeyed through life the past two years and completely left my website. (Although I have checked to make sure it wasn’t COMPLETELY broken every month and continue to pay my fees!) But yeah, just checked in recently and couldn’t believe it was almost 2 years since I had updated. That’s nuts.

Since we last met my life has been on a steady upward trajectory. Happy family, happy romance, amazing job, and there is just no excuse to not come back to what I love. I’ve never stopped reading because I could never but reviewing just kind of fell to the side. But no more. This will be my year to shine.

New Changes
1) Weekly Scheduled Updates – To avoid me just coming on strong and burning out I’m going to stick with 1 review each week released on Saturday. (Rejoice) Any extras I read will be scheduled in advance for those weeks where I am busy.

2) More News/More Community – I want to be with you guys, my people, I want to be friends! I also want my website to have more informational content. Helpful stuff! News ranging from upcoming series, Licensing, ect.

This main push will be done through my Facebook Page. If you give my Page a like I promise to post interesting and useful information. I will also give links to my older favourite stuff so you don’t have to go through my whole website ect.

3) Lets communicate – I want a bigger input on what you’re reading. What should I review next? What kind of information will be useful to you? Do you want a personalized recommendation? I can do that lets chat!

4) Website Overhaul – I know my website is swamped with broken links/outdated info/missing graphics. I will go forward with making sure everything is up to date.

Thank you guys for sticking with me! Let’s make 2016 amazing! :3

{Personal Life Update: Jan 2014}

January2014
*Mademoiselle Butterfly

Hey guys, I realize that once more I’ve ghosted, and I apologize.

This post may come off as maybe too personal for some but I’ve always seen this site as a great way to communicate with some friends I don’t see often. I also often have had little journal entries like this and they are interesting to look back on.

I’ve been gone since September but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been reading manga. Manga is still such an important part of my life. I’m almost up to 1000 books and I’m totally running out of space in my room!

One of the reasons I haven’t updated with new series is that I found a lot of the new series coming out were all yaoi. Yaoi is the opposite of my “thing” and it is extremely important to me to have a website dedicated to just shoujo and josei since it’s something that I always wanted. Trying to look for josei or shoujo I would always find yaoi and I just… don’t like it? So I’ve spent a lot of time re reading what I have and catching up on those on going series I reviewed three years ago. (It’s so much!)

Secondly my personal life has kinda of been from one extreme to the next since September. September 19th while I was at work my father passed away suddenly and unexpectedly from a heart attack. All year he had been in and out of the hospital due to arthritis but never anything life threatening. He had just been to the hospital in the morning for some tests and passed away when he got home.

I’ve found it incredibly difficult to deal with since it was so sudden. It’s crazy to go from seeing someone every day and sharing your life with someone and just suddenly without warning they aren’t there anymore. It’s been four months but it’s crazy how there are still days I just want to stay home cry and sleep.

Once my dad passed away my life has been up and down with dealing with everything that comes after. Dealing with our house and family drama it’s crazy. The structure of my own life was shaken.

It’s difficult but I feel like I’m finally getting back to my “routine”.

I hope you all have had a better time since September! I’m hoping you enjoyed your holidays and I hope your New Years was amazing!
I want this year to be the best, I want to be more structured and organized.

I’m looking forward to a new year with you guys!
