Frequently Asked Questions
I’ve written this nifty guide/FAQ-esque to give you the basics or quick answers to your inquiries. If there are still things that didn’t cover by this post, please contact me.
Well, this is a personal blog, or my humble little space in the vast world of the interwebs so to speak. I blog about my interest and thoughts that want to escape from its containment. I mostly talk about what I read, or me as a reader and a blogger (rare times me as web designer). I ramble about manga, webtoons and anime with reckless abandon. Sometimes about me…like some personal thoughts, travel and the likes. But mostly just an outlet for my interest! <3
Because it sound…mystical? And yes, I have purposely misspelled because I liked it and will be very different! I know my grammar sucks but I’m pretty sure I know how to spell ‘fairy’ the right way but chose not to…because aesthetics!
Yeppers, because I want to and I don’t like the name anymore so I just have to do. I let you know I’m quite fickle-minded.
My blog names: Skye Station (July 2010), morphed into book blog I called Aeropapers (October 2010) then when I became an anime + manga fan again I renamed into Rainyink (July 2015) and now because I want something fresh + adding some personal tidbits here and there, it’s now called Faiery (July, 2017). Yeah…I love renaming!
Even before I really, really dislike labeling myself. Maybe I was a book blogger before, and somehow search engine points me now as “manga” blogger…which there’s an actual hint of truth to that BUT!!! I’m just a simple blogger! A blogger who seeks comfort on writing her thoughts about what she loves! My topics are pretty random. About reading, about manga/anime, about blogging, about travels…about me? Yep, yep just a blogger with too much to say thus the blog!
You see I’ve decided to permanently close comments in all of the posts/pages because well, the engagement stats is pretty meh…or nada to be put it bluntly ever since I moved and revamped so I find it quite unnecessary. If you want something from me, email me! If you want to be friend me head over to twitter. I’m semi-active there (though it’s private but if I know you somewhere or if you’re practically a stranger but we have common interest (manga, anime, webtoons for example) then don’t be shy to add me. ^^
I no longer review books so I appreciate if you cease emailing me about it. It’s pretty obvious of what has become of my blog, or the new direction of it.
I do discuss about me being passionate reader and topics centers around it. Although the medium has changed (my interest in books has declined greatly) I still read. Everyday! I’m concentrating on reading Japanese graphic novels (manga) and South Korean web comics / webtoons.
As in links, sure, but snippets of the post itself requires a permission from me. I’m really not comfortable sharing my posts because (1) my writing is totally unprofessional, it’s quite embarrassing (2) it’s my opinion, therefore I would like my post/s to stay where I originally posted it which is my blog.
This is a very PERSONAL blog. As much as possible I wanted it to be a private reflection of my thoughts on the things I love. If ever I open my blog to other people, I’ll make an announcement. For now, and for selfish reasons, this will remain my own oasis.
In connection: Can I guest post on your blog? Um, sure? If you like me to, I’m happy to visit, although it also depends on my availability.
Nope. In the interest of full disclosure: ALL MY REC POSTS (or reviews for that matter) ARE WRITTEN AND POSTED BY MY OWN VOLITION. Even if publishers gave me review copies, it & will never affect my judgment. If I think the story is good and want people to also enjoy it I will write a rec post. I’m just blogger who enjoys reading.
So what about it? Nah, I get you, you meant the usage, right? Some of the photos were taken by yours truly (and can’t be used outside of this blog) and while the others were photos I grabbed from royalty-free image stock sites like unsplash or pixabay. For screencaps I put disclaimer/watermark on the image itself. These are used under fair use & absolutely no infringement is intended. And please don’t hotlink the images, like please DON’T!
I’ve been asked this a lot, so I might as well answer it here: I made it. Also check my resource page for site credits here. I don’t entertain inquiries via my personal blog; please refer to my other blog instead for more info (and please use my email I provided there & not the email I’m using here, OK?)
A solid no. I also don’t reply to inquiries about this so do yourself a favor and refrain from emailing me. ;D
For your specific blog related inquiries, I’m just an email away, send those questions via my email.
