Blerdy Otome Monthly Recap – November 2021

Hey Blerdy Tribe! It’s the end of yet another month, so it’s time for the Blerdy Otome Monthly Recap! It’s already December?! The year is practically over already?!

While I didn’t win the*gameHERS award, just making it as a finalist was a huge honor and it inspired me to do more here on Blerdy Otome! I still have some growing to do both as a blogger and as a creator and it’s only up from here! 

In November I also hit 500 followers over on Twitch and I am still kinda surprised at how much the channel has grown and how awesome everyone over there has been! I’ve met some super cool streamer and the folks who wander into my chat are always a riot! Ever stream is so much fun and even when I have tech issues everyone has been phenomenal about rolling with all the hiccups! 

As always there’s a lot more on the horizon in December, but before we dive into the new month, let’s take a look back at the month of November here at Blerdy Otome!

Blerdy Otome Monthly Recap – October 2021

Hey Blerdy Tribe! It’s the end of yet another month, so it’s time for the Blerdy Otome Monthly Recap! It’s already November?! Where the hell did 2021 go?! 

The month of October was definitely hectic on my end, but there were some awesome things that happened too! I made it as a finalist in TheGameHers Award for Top Journalist of the Year and I am still blown away that I made it to the top 5 alongside phenomenal content creators from sites like Game Informer and Kotaku. To even have Blerdy Otome in the same sentence as such huge gaming sites is something I never imagined was possible when I started this site back in 2015. I’ve come so far since my Nice Job Breaking It, Hero days and the sky’s the limit so I can’t wait to see where the future takes me!

As always there’s a lot more on the horizon in November, but before we dive into the new month, let’s take a look back at the month of October here at Blerdy Otome!

Blerdy Otome Monthly Recap – September 2021

Hey Blerdy Tribe! It’s the end of yet another month, so it’s time for the Blerdy Otome Monthly Recap! This year is breezing by, it seems like just yesterday it was January and now it’s already October?! A lot has happened this past month—I started a discord server to connect with folks away from Twitch and the Blog, and I was nominated for TheGameHers Award for Top Journalist of the Year (which still kind blows my mind). Whether I make it to the next round or not it’s still really cool to have been included among so many amazing content creators! 

As always there’s a lot more on the horizon in October, but before we dive into the new month, let’s take a look back at the month of September here at Blerdy Otome!

Blerdy Otome Monthly Recap – August 2021

Hey Blerdy Tribe! It’s the end of yet another month, so it’s time for the Blerdy Otome Monthly Recap! Is it just me or did August just kind of breeze by?! This month is kind of a blur… We’re getting closer to our annual meeting at my job, so work has been kind of hectic, but, streaming has become a great way to destress after hours. Though Twitch’s lax attitude towards bot raids and hate raids has me pissed off #TwitchDBetter. But, I’ve been lucky to have met so many amazing streamers who are super chill and super supportive, like Lauren aka BlackBelleFlower. And this weekend we’ll be doing a special collab stream over on Twitch; we’ll be playing Monster Prom! 

Collab BlkBellflower

Here on the blog home front I did something I said I’d never do and created a walkthrough for a game! It was a lot of extra work, but there’s something kinda fun about doing them. I did a much deeper dive into the game than I normally would have and I think I might make this a regular thing… maybe… 

This month was also a great month for otome fans, with Aksys hitting us with not one, but four new otome game localization announcements during their All Aksys Event! We are getting fed in 2021 and I am here for it! There’s a lot more on the horizon in September, but before we dive into the new month, let’s take a look back at the month of August here at Blerdy Otome!

Blerdy Otome Monthly Recap – July 2021

Hey Blerdy Tribe! It’s the end of yet another month, so it’s time for the Blerdy Otome Monthly Recap! It’s hard to believe that this year is more than halfway over—where is the time going?! 

July has been an exciting month, from the IFI otome announcements to the release of both Tears of Themis and BUSTAFELLOWS—otome fans are getting fed in 2021! And there’s even more otome goodness coming our way in the coming months! On a personal level, I went to BlerdCon earlier this month and got to take one of my online friendships to IRL and we had a blast exploring the con (hopefully we can meetup again for more cons). 

I did a bit of sprucing up here on the ol’ site. I changed the theme and cleaned up the menus and tags, (because they were a mess), and added banners to my pages. Some of the more noticeable changes are that I streamlined the menu: linking items to pages instead of categories or tags, removing stuff that wasn’t relevant to the current focus of the site, finally fixing the Otome Game Reviews and Indie Game Reviews pages so they just show game reviews. I also created a page for Otome Basics, a one stop shop for otome newbies—my Beginner’s Guide to Otome, a curated list of great posts for newbies, and more, so definitely check that out! I also updated all the Manga Reviews so they all have feature images and it was kinda fun making them.

There’s a lot more on the horizon in August, but before we dive into the new month, let’s take a look back at the month of July here at Blerdy Otome!
