Recap: This blog recently reached 300 followers, and I made a post for people to submit questions.
Thank you for the congratulatory messages and to those who submitted questions. 🙂 I’ve categorized everyone’s question into a specific category, so you can browse by question content.
These questions are all related to the blog
What made you stop blogging in the past? And what convinced you to start all over again?
I stopped because of two main factors: little to no motivation and real-life obligations. These two things combined just made me stop entirely for a while.
I started the blog when I was in graduate school as an outlet for stress. But I got busy doing internships and writing my thesis. So, when I saw that I wasn’t getting much engagement, I didn’t see a need to continue.
When life started to settle down a bit, that’s when I began to think about revamping the blog. I missed writing freely. And since I also talk to myself a lot, I might as well try to get something out of it.
When did you start blogging?
2018, I think.
What are your favourite blog posts you’ve shared on your blog?
My personal favorite is the post where I share my experience growing as a Chinese Canadian. Out of all the posts I’ve written, this one resonated with me the most as it’s one of the most original posts I’ve written on here.
Another favorite is Anime couples and their Kpop love song. I thought this one was pretty creative.
Are there blog posts you’ve written in the past that you now feel need to be revamped? If so, which one(s) and why??
Many of my old posts need some revamping to some extent because of the tone I used, haha. When I go back to read these, I feel like I’m hearing (or, I guess, reading about) my old self again, which is not always a pleasant experience.
How do you come up with such cool listicle ideas??
Thank you for the compliment. I’m glad that someone enjoys reading my listicles XD.
I take a lot of inspiration from other creators. I take what I like about their idea and put my own spin on it.
For example, my recent series on rating character designs from Another Eden was inspired by ProZD’s series on ranking characters or Pokemon designs. That’s one way I come up with listicle ideas.
Sometimes the idea just comes out of nowhere. I’m sure many creators can relate when I say that a great idea can just pop into your mind when you’re not expecting it. I guess everyday life is an inspiration.
What other usernames did you come up with before you chose to go with “eveningteamusings”??
anniesaurusx. That was my old blog name, too, actually.
Why did you start blogging and how is your blog different from others?
This feels like an interview question, haha. I started blogging because I wanted to get back into writing creatively. I used to write a lot of fan fiction but got caught up in school papers.
My blog is different because it’s my own.
Why did you name your blog as the “Evening Tea Musings” ?
I like tea. I prefer evenings to mornings. This blog is a place for my thoughts. I literally just smushed everything together.
What type of blog do you prefer reading?
I don’t have a preferred type of blog. But I like blogs that can get a bit personal at times.
These questions relate to anything to do with music.
What’s your recent favorite song?
There are two right now.
- No matter–EXO
- We Know Who We Are–Said the Sky, Olivver the Kid
What’s your favorite music genre?
Pop and dance.
If you wrote song lyrics for your favourite musician(s), who would you write for and why??
I love this question. I would want to write for artists like Said the Sky or Owl City. I’ve always loved their music and vibe.
Do you listen to music while reading webtoons if so plz recommend me a good playlist
I actually don’t listen to music while reading Webtoons XD. But I’ve been into this dark classical romance mix on YouTube. It’s great for writing. I also create some playlists on my own YouTube channel. 😉
Your favorite Kpop song of all time
Replay by SHINee. The first song that got me into Kpop.
Your favorite BTS mv
I’m going to say Dynamite because it’s the song that awoken the ARMY within me. But I really love Spring Day.
If you to go to Kpop concert with your follower, who would you choose?
I love this question. It’s so creative!
That would depend on what concert it is. I know some people are fans of specific groups, so I think it would be fun to go to a concert with the group they like.
Una and Lina from hallyureviews–A SHINee concert. From their IG stories and general reviews on SHINee, I think they’re pretty big fans. So, it would be fun to go with them!
asic from officiallyhaven–A NCT concert. Just from her posts, it seems like she’s an NCTzen. It would be crazy to see all the units together!
Pavithra and Poorwa–A BTS concert. I think they’re fans of BTS. And, I mean, who wouldn’t want to go to a BTS concert? Sign me up.
hiddengirl75–A SEVENTEEN concert. I’m not sure if she’s a CARAT, but just from her response to her Kpop playlist, I take it that she enjoys SEVENTEEN’s music.
And to whoever is interested, an HYBE concert. That would be legendary.
Who is your favourite kpop idol at the moment?
No one at the moment… so I’m going to say IU. She’s my all-time favorite.
These questions don’t have a specific theme but are general, fun questions.
What’s your idea of a perfect day?
My perfect day would include the following:
- Getting up early
- Drinking coffee
- Taking a walk outside
- Getting a lot of work done. This could include making significant progress on my interactive novel scripts or projects at work.
- Watching a great show or anime
- Reading a Webtoon
Any Webtoon recommendations?? XD
- The Hip Guy–Strong female and male protagonist. Great humor and pacing. You don’t want to miss this.
- Midnight Poppy Land–You’ll die for the male protagonist. The relationship is adorable.
- Tales of Greed–A darker Webtoon where your desires have insane consequences.
Do you prefer cookies or doughnuts?
if you could stay in someone else’s shoes for a day, who would it be?
Y/N. This stands for “Your Name”. For anyone confused, let me explain.
This abbreviation is used for the main character in fan fiction or second person “novels”. This “person” is usually a girl and lives the best life when it comes to romance. For example, she could attend a BTS concert and somehow find her way backstage to meet the members.
if a genie gave you 3 wishes, what would they be?
- A fridge that automatically replenishes itself with the food I need when I need it.
- Pots and pans that automatically cook food.
- Communicate with people between worlds. For example, how cool would it be to communicate real-time with your favorite anime character?
If you could live anywhere and live a new life, where would it be?
New Zealand would be fun.
Have you ever imagined to live in anime world? Which anime is it and why? And what is your character-name,skills,power,elements)
Too many times, haha. My answer to this would change depending on what anime I’m into. So I’m going to go with Jujutsu Kaisen, even though I’ll probably get killed. XD
But that’s okay. Seeing Gojo would be worth it.
Character name: Ami
Power: The ability to make powerful puppets from cursed spirits or humans. (Sasori from Naruto, anyone?)
What’s the one (or more) thing(s) you do every day(like not the basic needs) with or without knowing.
I need to do some kind of exercise everyday.
These are personal questions.
Where are you from?
I’m born in Taiwan but grew up in Canada.
How are you??
I’m pretty good. Hopefully, this COVID situation goes away soon so we can start travelling internationally again so I can fly back and see family. Then, I would be great.
How old are you?
How many languages do you speak?
2–Mandarin Chinese and English.
Who inspires you?
My family, specifically my dad and my sister.
I hope you guys enjoyed the Q&A. I don’t think I missed any questions, but let me know if I missed yours.
Until next time~
