Update: Some changes to the site

7/01/2015

Hi everyone!

Let me tell you a little story. Once upon a time, there was this little girl, who was about 10 to 11 years old, and who loved everything about anime. Her favorite back at that time was a pretty well-known series called Naruto, followed by Naruto Shippuuden. There was one character in particular that she liked though, and that guy's name was Uchiha Sasuke. She had just graduated from Friendster and had started exploring the rest of that wonderful new world called the Internet. She loved writing, so she got herself FanFiction and FictionPress accounts, and signed up for Tumblr and Blogger as well. But she was stumped. Both Blogger and Tumblr asked her what she name she wanted. "What name?" The young girl was confused. So she typed the first name she could think of. "Uchiha Ran", because... "Well, wouldn't it be fun to have Uchiha Sasuke as a husband?", her kiddie mind thought. Since then, the name Uchiha Ran stuck, and she started using it for all her profiles. And that is the story, of how a single character, managed to become a part of the little girl's online persona, until she grew up, and resigned herself to the fact that... meh, Sasuke and her would (and could!) never get married anyway, so what's the point? =)

But anyway, kidding aside, hahaha, that's the real backstory to why this blog was named "uchiharan"... up until today, that is.


Just to let you guys know, I changed the URL of this site to "otometwist", because... well, I've been wanting to change the old address for so long, but I didn't want to lose any of the posts and the stats, too, haha, as I always considered it too risky. =)

Earlier this morning though, as I was playing music on shuffle while I was getting ready for school, Paramore's song, The Only Exception, came up. As Hayley sang, "'cause none of it was ever worth the risk, well, you are the only exception~", I just happened to look at my laptop and I realized, "Hm. Risk. Risk... like changing a blog URL?" Hahaha. (Really, this whole thing is just a series of coincidences.)

So I searched online about how to change my blog URL without losing much of anything (again, as I must have searched a dozen times before already) and came across this post. Gosh, I can't believe I've never tried that out before! It worked perfectly, haha. If you want to change your blog URL too and keep your stats, you better check out that very useful guide.

Ah, and another really nice thing that happened today: a good friend of mine who really enjoys digital chibi drawings (although her drawings are pretty rare nowadays, all because of college, just like me) made these cute strawberries for this blog. Check them out!


From now on, I'll be using these strawberries as a visual rating to the games. Eh, I know I've always used strawberries anyway, but I just think it's a bit nice to see these cute berries right here in front of me. Hahaha. Thank you so much, Mica! (That's her tumblr blog right there, so feel free to visit.)

So anyway, that's it for blog updates. Thank you so much everyone! I'm so glad to see you guys here, even after my long absence. Hahaha. <3  Really, can't thank you people enough.
