Looking back on how many seconds, hours, days, and months I spent on this site, it’s kind of overwhelming to think that I already reached my first year of blogging. It feels like it was only yesterday when I decided to put up Snippettee’s Blog, and just hours ago that I re-named it to Lemmas and Submodalities.
For some special reason, it’s fulfilling and gratifying to re-visit my old posts and comments of my readers. Every single article pops so many unforgettable anime screen shots and relives the young SnippetTee as she tries to verbalize her ideas. Now, as I write this post, lots of great memories are overflowing in my head that my fingers can’t even keep up with this sudden rush of thoughts.
Speaking of memories, how could I ever forget the friendship that was formed through writing? Up to now, I still find it fascinating how the 2D-world defied time and space to linked the people of the 3D world. Think about how Kyubey contracted us, how the Penguindrum and its apples made its viewers delved into the emblematic realm, how Yune and Alice’s cuteness brought its audience to Paris, and how Chihaya introduced us to Karuta… these are so mesmerizing and it’s so lovely how all of those feelings and ideas are now scribed in history. All the short conversations and debates that this humble blog hosted will be surely forever cherished.
I don’t know for how long I’m going to blog… Certainly, breaking the old habits is going to be difficult that’s why I try not to think about it. But I guess as long as time permits, I will certainly continue to watch and write something about anime. I really am hoping optimistically to reach my second year because I’m not willing to give up the word “fun” yet.
So before I end this post, I would like to express my gratitude to all the readers, visitors and commenters of this blog. Sometimes I worry that I may sound too formal and might be pushing my ideas too hard, because most of the time the discussions always go beyond the anime—whether it’s philosophical or personal. But that being said, I really am grateful to be known and be inspired by you guys. Words can never express how thankful I am.

TT_TT that was damn touching! We thank YOU for inspiring us, for making our sundays, for provoking us with your thoughts
You almost gave me a heart-attack with your speech… it was like saying goodbye. Super happy that’s not the case! Keep up the good work :) You should really be proud for what you’ve achieved this one year.
Thank you Ayame, you’re for being always kind to me. ^^ I think it works both ways for us. If you find my posts inspiring that’s because I’m also getting inspired because someone appreciates what I write.
I might have a busy schedule ahead of me because I’ll be going back to school, but I don’t want to say goodbye to blogging yet. I’ll certainly try to figure out how I can continue blogging and post consistently.
Future World Aniblog champion right here doods! You have my vote Snippy. Congrats on your 1 year anniversary.

Congratulations on the anniversary! I hope that you continue to find blogging enjoyable because your blog is one of my favorite reads. Don’t worry about sounding too formal. If anything, the blogosphere is plagued by too little formality. Keep it up.
Thanks for your encouraging words Balloon_Thief. Also, I enjoyed interacting with you over here and twitter.
We’re all getting old aren’t we Snippette? :P
I know right? But, for some weird reason I still feel like I’m new to blogging.
Thanks for dropping by feal!
I always watch you my dear SnippetTee! *insert Kyubey face here*
Haha, thanks feal. Now, the pressure is on to start a new post. ^^
I was wondering when your anniversary would be coming up. Congratulations on making it a whole year. I don’t think you should worry about your posts being too formal, since that’s all part of your style and why people keep coming back.
Thanks Yerocha. ^^
Actually my anniversary was yesterday. I was just too busy that I couldn’t write a post.

Yeah, I agree with Ayame, you’re the one who’s been a major inspiration, at least to me. I’ve learned a lot from this blog; just how deep discussions of anime can go, how thought-provoking blog posts can be, how fun to read philosophical theories can be…I really do look to this blog as the highest standard of quality. I love all your posts, and I sincerely hope to read your blog next year and the years after that. Keep up the great work.
Thank you so much for your inspiring words, John. Readers like you makes blogging more fun and pushes me to get better.
I really do look to this blog as the highest standard of quality.
I’m so flattered by your words and I don’t know how to react. I always think that I’m just like everyone else who likes to put effort in my work and present my articles the best that I can. That’s why I really do appreciate that you see something special with my works.
And same to you, I wish you all the best. I’ll be waiting for the day when it’s my turn to greet you on your first blog anniversary. ^^
Aww, congratulations on turning 1-year-old, Snippet-dear! I remember seeing your blog at about the same time that I started, and it really hasn’t felt that long. It’s scary how quickly the time can go when you’re having fun ^^
You really have put out a lot of wonderful little articles through this time and I look forward to many more, for as long as you can!
Whenever I think about how I started, your blog never fail to cross my mind. I remember stumble upon your site on MAL. It’s really kind of reminiscing and fascinating to see people who are part of the memorable past. Thanks for being one of them.
Congratulations, SnippetTee and thanks for your inspiring posts – I’m looking forward to your second year! The discussions of your posts going beyond the anime in question is one of the very reasons why I cherish your blog!
Thanks jreding, I’m happy to know that you like my blog. At the same time I really did enjoy sharing thoughts with you and reading your insightful comments.
Your post about Dantalian no Shoka’s first episode was what got me blogging. Your blog was only a few months old back then I believe, but it was probably the first aniblog post that I’ve ever read in its entirety. Looking back, it really does feel like not much time has passed, yet here we are. Thanks for that and congrats SnippetTee! ^^
Here’s to another year eh? :D
I’m glad to know that my little post managed to inspire you. I’m also looking forward to your blog anniversary. It shouldn’t be that long since you started just a few months after me.
Cheers and thanks Leap!^^

Congrats, and just keep blogging. ^ ^
Thanks Ry, I will certainly try my best to post something like this next year.
Thank you for giving us such good reads throughout the year. I can only hope you will continue on in many years to come!
Thanks Hoshiko. ^^
Even if you are unable to blog on a regular basis, I do hope you’ll have the time to share your ideas with us for as long as you enjoy doing so. Thanks for being awesome and inspiring me with your incredible posts. And, of course, congratulations on reaching the first year milestone! ^_^b
Thanks so much for your kind words. And indeed, I will surely try to blog as long as it’s enjoying. I’m really liking this hobby because I get to explore and learn things whenever I’m searching for a blogging material.
Btw, I noticed that this is your first time commenting on my blog, once again thanks. I truly appreciate. ^^
I also feel like it was just yesterday that I got to know SnippetTee’s blog.
And I notice incredible growth with your work and blog overall which is not easy to achieve.
Thanks Canne. And, I remembered I’ve been following your blog in a while now, kind of feels weird in a nice way to hear a greeting from a long-time blogger like you. It makes me feel like I’m still just a reader. ^^
It’s only been a year? I feel like I’ve been following your blog forever. Congrats on reaching the 1 year milestone, I’m sure you’ll find it even more enjoyable as time goes by and you encounter even more people.
Yep, just a year only. And likewise, I seemed like I’ve been following you like forever. Your blog is one of the sites that I’ve been reading before I started my own, so seeing your avatar makes me feel like a newbie.
Thanks Nopy. ^^
I agree how it can be so interesting to look back on past posts. My blog goes back four and a half year ago, and back then I was a completely different person, but I can see and remember the type of person I was because of my blog.
Anyway, I hope you stick around for years to come because I always look forward to reading your posts!
Thanks for your kind words, Lostty.
I also still remembered how I stumbled upon your blog, You wrote something about anime characters best portrayed Hollywood stars, and the reason why I remembered is because of Seth Cohen (Adam Brody). I confess that I used to be a The OC fan, lol.
Here’s to at least one more year! I know you can go longer though. =P
Thanks, Inuchan. As long as I’m seeing more good people and friends online, I’ll try to stick as long as I can.
Out of curiosity, how many views does your blog have in total?
