December 28 is Editorial Day

Think hard. Think long. Don’t think.

In my latest act of rash judgment and spontaneity, I announced on Twitter that December 28th would be Editorial Day.  If you want to participate, write an editorial on any anime-related subject of your choosing, and post it on December 28th.  I might make a list of participants.

This event is designed to make all of us non-editorial bloggers write something that sounds smart.  So if you’re an episodic blogger, a figure blogger, or a dannychoo groupie, consider doing something interesting with your blog and participate!

Stop thinking and write something already!

RULES: The Name of the Game

  • Write an editorial, publish post on December 28th.
  • 1000 – 2000 words is a good length.
  • For those of you who aren’t as well-versed in metaaniblogspeak as I am (aka “has no life”), an editorial is basically a long post about something (excluding specific episodes of anime/chapters of manga).  It’s like writing a paper for your high school English class, only more interesting.

    Maybe I’ll do it, I have an idea for an editorial planned for a long time already. It’s something I consider important though, and since the aniblogosphere will still be saturated with 12 Days posts I was thinking about waiting for things to quiet down so it’ll get more notice.

    Sounds like a prime forum for my Haganai Takoyaki post.

      Off-topic: I don’t get why Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai gets abbreviated to Haganai. I mean, you’re leaving out the me, the friends, and the many. All you’re left with is Particle Particle Don’t.

      Maybe it’s a commentary on the FTL neutrinos or something.

      Also, do it.

    I will not do this, because I am lazy and forgetful. If I do do this, it will be shear coincidence.

    • flomu says:

      I am also lazy and forgetful. But this stupid post is always at the top of my blog so I can’t forget. And I’m too lazy to post more so it goes down. bah.

    And done. It isn’t strictly an editorial, but fuck it I just felt like ranting in a rather verbose fashion. I liked this idea though.

      Yay! I thought an editorial was just a long, organized post about opinions. Rants are good, too…?
