Otakuverse.com

Well, I've gone and deleted most everything from Otaku Style! You can find most of my posts on www.otakuverse.com now, which is the new site. I only left out the posts that I didn't think were good enough, or didn't seem to attract any attention, so it should be okay.

There isn't much left for me to do with Otakuverse in regards to getting it up and running. There is no mobile view yet, but that's a low priority unless someone says they would like it. The newsletter will still be delayed, as I haven't figured out a way to cancel yet. I can't leave people hanging if they want to unsubscribe! ^^; So there will be no newsletters until that is sorted out!

Other than that, we're all pretty much ready! So, I think it's safe to say now that Otakuverse.com is live!

Good bye, Otaku Style and Blogger! It's been great to blog here! Now it will be great to blog on www.otakuverse.com.

Otaku Style is changing to Otakuverse! Updates!

The new website is almost finished! It's so close!! About all that's left are little tedious things to work on.

Once Otakuverse is settled and I think most people have had time to move, I'll be deleting Otaku Style... It's a little sad, but in the end, it's an improvement!

You can look at Otakuverse now at Otakuverse.com! Let me know if you think I should change anything, or if you have any ideas for things I should add to make it better!

Currently, we are still struggling with the email newsletter. I plan to (hopefully) have that done by next Monday. You can still subscribe, but you might have to wait a bit before we send any out. We're planning for the newsletter to be weekly.

If you want to subscribe via Blogger, you'll have to do it manually for each blog page you want to follow. I don't really consider Blogger to be a big enough medium to add subscription buttons for it even though Otakuverse is not using it... I might eventually add a page where people can choose how to subscribe via their own blog reader, but I think that email should be good enough...

Oh, but I will be posting links to all the new reviews on my new Google+ profile! If you're not following it yet, you can get to it by clicking here.

I will also be posting links to it via this Twitter account.

Um... I think that's about it for now!

I hope you like it! Feedback is more than welcome! ^^

Updates

I'm sorry for many things, mostly related to the previous post which has long since been deleted.

I had not been doing well, but that's personal, and this is not meant to be a personal blog. I know that post was personal, but it was an exception for well, obvious reasons...

*Ahem*, I'm doing a bit better now, and I thank everyone for the support they gave me. Someone called 911 and I was taken to a hospital where I was admitted for a short period of time.

But that will be all you hear of it on this blog anymore. I'm sorry to have upset anyone, and I know that I did upset a lot of people. It is a lot to ask, but I hope that we can put it behind us.

As for the new website, I will begin working on it again. That's another thing I'm sorry for! There has been a ton of delays regarding Otaku Style. I'll try to get it up as quickly as I can. I am mostly having issues related to code, since that really is not my area... But I'll do my best.

Thanks for being patient and reading Otaku Style this long. Again, I'm deeply sorry for the trouble I've caused. I promise I won't take personal matters into Otaku Style again.

100 Posts on Otaku Style and a New URL

+

We've reached our 100th post recently, but there are bigger reasons to celebrate!

Otaku Style will actually be changing its name and getting a new URL which will end in .com!

I'm a little paranoid to say what the URL will be, as I haven't bought it yet and I'm scared that someone could still snatch it away from me~

In any case, the new site will be much easier to navigate, and we'll gradually add more types of content! As you've probably seen, we're no longer only posting otaku reviews, but now we are posting otaku news as well. We will be posting more of that, but we'll continue posting reviews as well.

We will also be posting about other topics, such as Japanese culture and language, and sometimes we'll even post about non-Japanese things which can still be considered otaku, such as western games.

If you have any ideas or opinions of things you'd like added, feel free to comment about them!

For now, we'll continue posting on Otaku Style until we're ready to work on the new site!
