As I lay here listening to Le Realè’s 1080p I wonder, “where is WordPress’s anime fandom?”
Experiencing the draining social media sites like Instagram and Tumblr has exposed me to fandoms (and their toxicity). I wonder, why doesn’t WordPress have an anime fandom? If it does, where is it?
I know people post in the anime tag but it seems tumblr gets more of the anime junkies. I know it’s probably because of how easy it is to blog there. It’s a micro-blogging platform. People are lazy. Tumblr’s quick-posting feels suitable anyway. It’s minimal and just…BARE.
One thing I don’t like about tumblr (and Twitter) is how toxic it is and that the site keeps what you make unlike other sites. At least when you delete a post on Instagram it’s inaccessible to you and the general public.
I love WordPress because I have more freedom and it’s actually made for blogging. There’s no toxicity. Because of the aesthetic/atmosphere of its post editor, WordPress also forces you to churn out something quality rather than shitpost.
What I miss from tumblr is the community it had. Aka People that interact with you on your post. For whatever reason I don’t get comments from people wanting to interact with me or talk about my posts (I can’t wait for that day). I attribute that to WordPress’s unattractive comment box.
That’s why I like Instagram so much: interaction. Sadly I haven’t tried this with my OCs. Only in the anime community.
I’m just waiting for the day WordPress gets a proper anime community that is something besides reviews.
Will WordPress ever have this or will the dreaded social media take it and wear it like a crown?
