The reason why I started this blog

I was in graduate school when I started this blog, so it was a creative outlet for me to relieve stress. Now that I graduated, I blog for fun.

Advice for newbies

Posting consistently tends to increase your blog traffic. There was a long period where I didn’t post any content. So, I saw my traffic gradually die. When I started posting again (and more consistently), my traffic began to grow, whether it was from search engines or WordPress.

This one is a personal opinion: I prefer blogs with a featured image theme. Usually, this is a template or a colour scheme. Regardless, it makes the blog look organized, and helps your readers recognize your posts easily.

Note: I’m working on a Kingdom Hearts fanfiction project (The White Witch) inspired by the Korean drama, Hotel del Luna.

Synopsis: When Roxas was young, his mother asked a woman in white to grant her final wish: to erase her death from her son’s memory when she died. However, it came at a cost. Twenty years later, Roxas, who returned to his hometown from abroad, would pay the price as the White Witch came to claim what was rightfully hers. Hotel del Luna inspired.

The story does contain elements of suicide, depression, and self-harm.

Read The White Witch on Fanfiction or AO3.
