Oh hello everyone 😀 Hmm.. I promise myself to make an appreciation post again if my ‘potatoes’ ever reach 500k. Apparently the figure came sooner than I expected! Thank you very much to every visitors, sorry to call you potatoes but it’s cute and the fact that you are reading this, you are cute to me. hehehe 😀 I’m not going to say much, like when I did with my 1st appreciation post. That was typed with excitement, overwhelmed and thankful feeling all over my body and soul. How this blog was born, and the direction and stuff already mentioned in that post. Here, at this moment, what I feel is non other than thankful of course… There are times when I get so lazy to blog and hope no new OST or album release.. but there were also times when I am in a good mood, and wanting to post anything I could. Lazy or not, by having my posts viewed by others is such a thrilled feelings. That’s why whenever I see comments to thank me, or sharing ideas about drama etc. I feel excited and motivated. These remarks that making my blog active.. I sincerely wanna thank each one of you who read this, all visitors, followers, you guys are awesome. I’ll try my best to keep this blog alive and sharing my passion with all of you. I don’t know when will it happen, but I want to believe that the journey to a million view is possible. Hehe thank you again everyone, saranghaeyo! ❤
I can’t believe this is happening. ㅠㅠ Lemme share an essay on how this blog is as it is today. You don’t have to read it though. If you want to stop here, I thank you ahead of time for visiting my blog. You guys are amazing! *xoxo* Who wants to read, okay come nearer. 🙂
I started this blog in September 2010, with “sharing korean romanization” in mind. That’s the objective all along. Well, it was just out of fun and it lasted only 2 months lmao. I abandoned this blog after a few posts and for the whole 2011. But one day in latter half of 2012, it was in September too! I suddenly decided to check this blog again. It had always been in my mind since I created it but I was too lazy and not knowing exactly what to post. My English is not good to post a journal. But then I realize, it’s time to make it alive again so I keep in mind that as long as people could understand me, all set. hahaha. Around that time, I was having a blast fangirl mode, visited Singapore for Lee Seung Gi’s FM, met T-ara in KL, seeing Seunggi again in KL and all.. I jot down every lil pieces of the memories through this blog. Sharing photos of Super Junior members when they traveled to Europe, and a few lyrics from SJ and Shinee’s album. and that’s it…. at the end of 2012, I abandoned it again. It only lasted 3 months. Poor lil thing. hurhur…
September 2013, around that time when The Inheritors and You Who Came From The Stars were everyone’s darling, I made a major changes in my tumblr and that’s how it’s all started again. I was thinking a new name for my tumblr and eventually decided to change my blog and tumblr name to sleeplessaliana, following my personal twitter and IG. Just to make it identical and it’s mine, the sleepless lady. I started regularly posting my fav drama’s OST.. consistently.. I kept my original objective of this blog flowing again. yeay!
A few changes has been made from time to time, on how I post stuff etc. It was fun! Sharing my romanization and pouring my unimportant thoughts. lol.. I tried to maintain the quality of my posts. I mean.. I care on every single details. Even my romanization, I re-check and make sure the original lyrics are correct and alter if possible.. but I might still making a mistake though. Just pretend you don’t see it. hehehe >.< (Oh! If you found a mistake that needs amendment, please left a comment so that I can fix it) I just hope people who search for things and found it in my blog, are satisfied with what they found. Some are demanding for translations, but unfortunately Choo Sarang is better in Korean than mine. So I can’t translate major stuffs like lyrics! My Korean ability is too far little to do that. I wish I can.. arghh *frustrated* 😦
But anyhow, I’m happy with this blog’s performance. I just share what I want, what I love and what I’m crazy for. Despite lacking here and there, I really appreciate when people likes my posts, commenting saying thank you and all. I feel grateful and fulfilled. Really 🙂 People are actually reading my posts! You’re all so lovely. I thank all of you for visiting my humble nest. 100,000 views might be nothing for some but it means a lot to me. Since visitors that top the 2014 statistic chart are from South Korea, 진심으로 감사드립니다! *90°인사* 🙂 hehe Thanks to every visitors. Wherever you came from! You! Who read this too. You are so lovely. Just so you know. 😀 Lemme hug you virtually. Sobs..
My next goal for this blog is… a travelogue. I always wanted to write about my travel experiences but all ended half-way and put in the draft. *smack ownself*. It would be great if I’m not that lazy to share something from my trails. I will try to make it happen someday. Wish me luck. hehehe fighting!!
