I can’t believe it’s been 7 years since I started this blog! I just wanted a place to geek out with fellow animation nerds and I’m glad to have found this community here! Thanks so much for your support all these years!
After 6+ years of blogging, I finally decided to change the overall look and theme of my blog. What do y’all think of the new design?
I don’t usually post personal stuff on this blog, but just wanted to let you all know that I (FINALLY) graduated college on Friday! And I celebrated at EPCOT yesterday!
Are any of you college graduates as well? What major did you study? Or if you’re not a college graduate, do you plan to be? If so, what major would you like to study? Let me know in the comments!
As the title suggests, I’m ending my DreamWorks Animation-Forgotten/Minor Characters project. I haven’t enjoyed doing it and have been disappointed with my writings related to it. So I decided to take a lesson from my fellow blogger friend, Rachel Wagner, and just end my project here rather than drudge through it til the end!
I shall be deleting all the posts I wrote for it as well, but I wanna thank all of you who took the time to read them! Don’t worry, future projects are on the way!
This is mainly for my new followers who might not already know: I have a second blog entitled My Live Action Disney Project, wherein I attempt to watch and review every theatrically released live-action Disney movie ever made. If you’re interested, please check it out by clicking here. I’ll greatly appreciate it! Thanks!
You all have seen me host a game show before, but how am I at being a contestant on a game show? Check out my appearance on The Dis Quiz, a new online Disney-based game show, below!
5 YEARS! 5 YEARS! 5 YEARS!
Five years ago today, I started this blog, The Animation Commendation! Five years ago today, I joined the online fandom community of animation lovers! Five years ago today, I made like-minded friends with whom I could share my passions and interests! Five years ago today, without sounding too schmaltzy, my life has definitely changed!
So I’ve finally done something that I’ve wanted to do for a long time: I’ve got an Instagram page for this blog!
No, I’m not deleting this WordPress blog; the Instagram page will serve as a companion piece to this blog. What will I be posting on my IG page? Well, I’ll definitely be informing my IG followers of when there’s a new blog post to check out! But, I’ll also be posting certain things ONLY to that IG account that I won’t be posting to my blog, so be sure to follow me on both platforms to get access to it all!
The IG account is the.animation.commendation
I’m looking forward to meeting you all there as well as to making new friends and followers in the Instagram world!
So just wanted to check in to let you all know that I’ve survived Hurricane Irma, thank God! Our damage was limited to having some of our backyard fence fallen down and not having power for about 32 hours. Thankfully, we got back power today, so hopefully I’ll get back to regular blogging soon! Thanks for your patience!
As many of you know, I live in Orlando, Florida. And as many of you also know, there is an incredibly intense hurricane named Irma headed our way. It’s currently a Category 4 storm, but has the possibility of strengthening back to a Category 5 when it hits the Floridian mainland. It’s estimated to hit Florida in the early morning hours of Sunday and go through the entire state all thru Monday.
We’re praying that we’ll all be safe and come out with as minimal damage as possible from this! So just know that because of the hurricane, don’t expect any new posts on this blog for the next week. After the hurricane hits (and if we still have Internet connection), I’ll try to update you all afterwards on the aftermath. I’ll also try to update my Twitter (@The_Anim_Comm) if I can, so keep a lookout there too.
Until then, keep us in your prayers! Thanks!
