Eyes on the Prize

  By Shamus   Aug 31, 2006   5 comments

Eyes on the Prize is a brand-new blog about anime, electronic gaming, and roleplaying. Wow. Can’t beat that. Looks like it was launched yesterday. Wisely, the author has already christened the site with fan service.

This follows the new blog Alex started a few days ago, which comes on the heels of a number of other new blogs I’ve seen pop up. Is this coincidence? Is this a back-to-school thing? Interestingly, this about when I launched this blog last year.

5Five easy comments.

    The statistic I heard several months ago was that someone starts a blog every 45 seconds. Which must make his fingers awfully cramped, and probably explains various spelling mistakes…

    I’m a bit old for back-to-school (and founded my blog 2 years ago anyway) but the 8th grade daughter of my buddy Dr.Heinous just started an animé club at her school.

    I told him he shouldn’t let her see Melancholy…now she’s trying to form branches of the SOS Brigade. :) They refused to let her name it SOS-dan, so it ended up with a lame name like “Animé Club.”

    This is a girl who built a robot for class that got nicknamed “Screeching Chewbacca.” Of course she’s a meganekko. Why do you ask?

    My daughter is a president of a “Japanese culture club” in her college, which is basically a name for anime club, as I figure. They aren’t into tea ceremonies. Her vision is perfect and she’s a black belt in Tae Kwon Do. So it takes all kinds.

    It’s a little early to tell how “Eyes on the Prize” is going to turn out. First, Jeffrey has to surmount the handicap of Blogger. For example, he is yet to learn to insert the home link into the banner, as I observe. Then, he’s going to see his links ignored by spam filters. I guess everyone has to try Blogger just to know what kind of cloaka it is, I did it too with TracyToday. After that, he has it get a feel for the readership. For example, I don’t care for video games…

    I’m actually in the middle of semester. It may be a case of “avoiding work” or of “deciding to do something so that I don’t feel like my writing skills are atrophying and I’m not expressing myself”.
    Something along those lines.

    I can’t say much. I’m WAY too old for school but I seem to have started this blog in the “back to school” season. I don’t know why.
