Hello everyone, and welcome back to another post! This post announces my return to blogging, while taking a little inspiration from the opening lyrics of my new favorite series: RWBY! The song is labeled as The Triumph, which is a fitting name for such an upbeat song. You can listen to the song below at the linked video. (Don't worry the video has no spoilers, but you might want to avoid the comments if you're worried about that.)
RWBY (expect more posts on RWBY soon), and the opening song The Triumph are inspiring to me. The song starts off from a defeated point of view, explaining the current situation and how things feel somewhat hopeless. Afterwards, the piece builds into a triumphant roar, stating that despite the past and regardless of all obstacles, there will be a way to overcome it all. This escalates from a possibility for change or aimless living, to blatantly declaring the will to survive and persevere. The overall theme deals with having the courage to keep moving forward no matter what, and to stop dwelling on the past as it can't really be altered.
Upon hearing the song this instantly resonated with me. As many may know, Shooting Star Dreamer has been quite inactive. Days turned to months, which led to a year or two, and things began to look bleak. Running a blog or any sort of product that's your sole creation is difficult. It's not the same as following a pre-planned schedule, and there's no one hounding you to keep going; the motivation comes from within.
Despite all the bumps in the road, I want to believe that things are fixable. Therefore, I am determined to breathe life into this blog once again, and hopefully inspire and bring joy to readers who like delving deeper into our pop culture. It may be difficult, but after a large amount of time pondering, I have decided that this is what feels right to me. It is my time to put in the effort to create my own Triumph.
With that monologue out of the way, I'd like to welcome everyone back to Shooting Star Dreamer! We've gone through a slight makeover, and things may not be the same as before, but the essence will remain the same: we dare to be different and enjoy anime, gaming, and Japanese culture! So I ask for those who fall into those interests to keep reading my blog as I get back to the show. I look forward to your continued support!
Lastly, here is the new blogging schedule I've come up with. Please expect posts on these three days from now on!
As always, if you have any feedback leave it in the comments below! This post is a bit raw, so please let me know how you feel about this style in comparison to more structured articles.
Thank you for reading!
