The last few pics were taken at after the Doll Show where I spent some time with Taitan talking about online communities and what have you. Still wondering if the relaunch of figure.fm should include dolls or whether I should set up a separate doll only community.
So, ever since I discovered the world of Dollfies, I want to write more about them as I find them incredibly interesting - just like when I discovered figurines.
I still like figurines and certainly wont be giving up on them anytime soon as I still appreciate them as a form of art and also because my work is heavily involved with them. Besides, they arrive every week on the doorstep from my sponsors ^^;
However, lately I do tend to take more interest in Dollfies which have much more customization options - wig, eyes (both pairs), body parts, clothes, accessories and what have you. There is also a certain attachment to them just as if they are...daughters ^^;
Just like I still get complaints about figurine content, I've noticed complaints about the dollfie content too.
For the most part, I write about what interests me and not about what I think the reader may be interested in. I think this has been key to growing the readership of dannychoo.com. I enjoy what I write about and am glad that others can read, enjoy and relate to the topics that I share.
I do find it interesting that some folks continue to complain and yet continue to read at the same time ^^; How about you? Do the dollfie posts bother you?
Once upon a time I used to be absorbed by everything Gundam where I would post several Gundam articles a day at times.
As my career got busier and then starting up Mirai Inc, I simply had less time to make Gunpla and eventually lost interest in following the Gunpla scene.
Figurines are ready to play out of the box with no assembly time required which was a factor for the gundam-to-figure transition. I also disliked the way that the Gundam Fix Figuration line took ages to get out of the box and I usually ended up with plastic bags of spare parts sitting in a container.
What I do try to do is balance the content out so that there are not too many figure/dollfie or Japan posts in a row. This photo article for example was due to go out in place of the A Day in Tokyo 5 photo article but there was too many Dollfie posts in a row.
