If You Are Gonna Write A Review…

…wouldn’t it be nice if it actually were you who wrote it? With your own words. Formed inside your brain. I know how to copy and paste but I would never take another persons hard work of analysing and contemplating on an anime or whatever it might be you are reviewing and put my name on it. If you suck at reviewing maybe you shouldn’t do reviews. Just a thought.

I am tired of people stealing other people’s hard work.

  1. Oh no….๐Ÿ˜ฎ๐Ÿ˜ฎ This is not what I am thinking it is right? Did somebody now steal one of your reviews? If so that would be truly annoying, and I can totally understand being upset about it.
    Completely agree with what you wrote: I would get very tired about that as well ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข


    1. Oh no, this is not about me. Thankfully. ๐Ÿ™„ The videos was enough. (That’s been solved btw. They took down all the links and blocked my channel Id so they can’t upload my content anymore. ๐Ÿค—) besides, my skills in review writing is nothing even the dumbest thief wouldn’t steal. ๐Ÿ˜Ž No, I read a review on another blog and it felt awfully familiar and then I realised that I had read the exact same review on MAL two years ago. A review from 2011. So yeah… ๐Ÿ˜‘๐Ÿค”

      1. Ah…phew, I am glad to hear that ๐Ÿ˜€๐Ÿ˜€ I was worried that someone might have stolen something else from you. Also glad to hear that the video issue has been solved! Awesome news.
        Hmm…don’t be so hard on yourself, I really enjoyed the piece you wrote about Neon Genesis Evangelion. And that was definitely part review as well, so there ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

      2. Iโ€™m not hard, Iโ€™m realistic. ๐Ÿ˜Ž Besides, if I started to call my posts review I would feel pressured to really start to analyses and think deeper about what in watch and then get those thought coherently down on paper. It sounds like so much job. *lazy* ๐Ÿ™ˆ And Iโ€™m not good with pressure. ๐Ÿ™„ Others do an excellent job being reviewers. ๐Ÿ˜

      1. I know that but I doubt this particular review (I am thinking of) was posted by that blogger. Itโ€™s seven years old and they have given it a completely different verdict. A 9/10 instead of the original 3/10. Itโ€™s too big a difference. The writing style is also different. I know I should probably not react to things like this and let it be but it annoys me.

      2. You have a perfect right to be annoyed. Just thought I’d play devil’s advocate for a second because I know a lot of bloggers who started out posting on MAL before getting their own blogs

      3. Also this person is one to steal yt videos… yeah, Iโ€™ve confronted them with it to no avail so this is my very passive aggressive way of telling them I guess. Ugh. I feel like a nagging old lady now. ๐Ÿ˜ซ

      4. I think, if it weren’t for that I would not have been just as cautious when I read the post. But I have no idea if I should even do something about it, say something. I confronted them about the videos, just asked a curious question of why one would take others videos and upload to ones own channel without consent and not credit the creator. I got a half lame answer back about something about learning or something.


    1. Thatโ€™s absolutely true. Thereโ€™s no need for the reader to read. I usually stop reading or just skim through such posts because in the end, I hope there might be something useful or interesting coming from the blogger themselves.
