Spirited Miracles

Over the past two days, I have launched two new fanlistings for anime/manga characters.

Yesterday, Miracle was added to the collective. It is the fanlisting for Ruka Tsuchiya of the anime and manga series Shoujo Kakumei Utena (Revolutionary Girl Utena) by Chiho Saito. The current layout has tight tables, with a soft orange and peach color scheme. It features two extensively edited anime screencaps of Ruka, in contrasting moods: one smiling and the other pensive/serious and juxtaposed with one another.

Today, I launched the fanlisting for Gon Freecss of Yoshihiro Togashi's anime and manga series Hunter X Hunter, Spirited. The current spread features two portraits of the young hero, designed in shades of forest and mint green. Version title and lyrics appearing on the layout are from the song Sweet Child O' Mine.

Faithless Beauty

My latest anime fanlisting is Faithless, for the relationship between Hisoka and Illumi Zaoldyeck of Yoshihiro Togashi's anime and manga series Hunter X Hunter.

The current layout is essentially earthy, with shades of black, brown and red. Design features blended single and joint images of these two beautiful, dangerous Hunters. Inspiration is the song Alive by the band X Japan, from their album Vanishing Vision.

Invincible Powerpuff

After owning the domain InvincibleNU for more than three years, I finally launched it as my fansite collective, where I will feature series, titles, characters and media that I love. The first version's design is named Orenji, inspired by ethereal artwork and done in light oranges and blues.

My first site in this collective is Townsville, lovingly created on Cartoon Network's The Powerpuff Girls show, containing series and merchandise information as well as web goodies. The current layout showcases Bubbles, Blossom and Buttercup in a pink tables spread and has lyrics from the song Girl Power by the female duo Shampoo.

A Ferocious Hound

I am so happy to announce the launch of Ferocious, the long-overdue fanlisting for the character Sandor Clegane, nicknamed "The Hound," of the HBO television show Game of Thrones and George R.R. Martin's fantasy novel series A Song of Ice and Fire.

I am quite proud of my digital work on the site's current layout. The design features a promotional image of Rory McCann as Sandor for the third season of Game of Thrones, juxtaposed with the sigil of House Clegane (three black hounds on yellow) and Sandor in his Hound armor during the show's very first episode.

Eternal Revolution

The network hails the month of August 2017 with two new anime fanlistings added to the fold!

Revolution is the fanlisting for Chiho Saito's groundbreaking anime series Shoujo Kakumei Utena (Revolutionary Girl Utena). Current layout has the series' main and most recurring supporting characters in a group portrait, hence the version title of Family Portrait, against a backdrop of maroon, pink and rose-red.

Our second addition is Eternally, the fanlisting for Arina Tanemura's mahou shoujo (magical girl) manga series Jikuu Ihoujin Kyouko (Time Stranger Kyoko). Current layout features the series' main character, Earth Nation's Princess Kyoko Soumi, holding her Time Stranger cane from a manga furuko (extras). Version title is named Tapestry, from the design's aged textures and soft colors of pink, peach and lavender.

The Shutter Ladybug

Let us give a very warm welcome to The Shutter Ladybug! This is my photography blog, where I am going to post various photos I have taken over the years and all over the world. I will also share online and offline resources I deem useful and interesting to hobby shutterbugs like myself.

To take pictures, I use a Panasonic Lumix DMC-FH2 digital camera, 14 megapixels and smaller than some smartphones. I am interested in subjects of all sorts and capture beautiful moments as they come. I have been trained as a photojournalist and marketer, and possess experience as a professional in traditional and web-based media.

I finally got around to launching this blog on 3rd August 2017, more than a year after I initially purchased the domain. I love ladybirds, or ladybugs, and wanted a bit of wordplay in merging this gorgeous little animal with the term "shutterbug" (which generally refers to a photography enthusiast).

The Shutter Ladybug is also available on your favorite social media channels and sharing networks. We have Pinterest Boards and a Tumblelog. You can also follow us on FaceBook, Instagram and Twitter.

An Ilongga Blog

I am very happy to announce the opening of Ilongga.net, my blog on the Philippines, Filipinos and "Pinoy" popular culture. Ilongga is the female grammatical ascription of a native of Iloilo, the Philippine province where I was born and raised.

I have long since wanted to make a website on the Philippines and all its cultural nuances. What is so interesting is that there are a lot of Filipinos like myself living outside the country; most of us in this category are migrant workers (OFWs or Overseas Filipino Workers). I wanted to capture the overall Pinoy spirit from this international, expatriate perspective. What's more, I dearly wished to showcase my beautiful hometown, Iloilo City, in particular. I finally got around to launching this blog on 2nd August 2017, two months after I decided to buckle down and purchase a domain for my web brainchild. As luck would have it, Ilongga.net was available at the time.

Ilongga.net is also available on your favorite social media channels and sharing networks. We have Pinterest Boards and a Tumblelog. You can also follow us on FaceBook, Instagram and Twitter.

Girl on the Web

Let's all give a very geeky welcome to Girl on the Web, Shi's blog on web resources and trends for geeky girl bosses like herself.

I have been building websites since 1999 and started blogging two years on. After so many years of being online, I wanted a place where I can write about and share the knowledge and experiences gained from my various web forays. In short, my own corner of the blogosphere where I can totally "geek it out"! The domain was purchased on 28 July 2016, but the site went live only on 31st July this year.

Cook, Dine, Yum!

Cook, Dine, Yum!, my long overdue cooking and foodie blog, is now online. This is where I intend to post my recipes, product and restaurant reviews, dining and travel experiences, and other food-related articles. The domain name was purchased on 26th January this year, but the site went live only on 29th July. Before that, I intermittently posted my foodie obsessions on Tumblr.

I have long since wanted to start a website focused on the culinary and gustatory aspect of my life, having started to cook in earnest in January 2014. It became a passion in honor of my paternal grandfather, who was an unparalleled grill master. Daddy passed away in the latter months of 2013, but today his memory, teachings and simple, sincere cooking principles remain alive through his only grandchild.

Animation Fanlistings and More

Since the launch of my fanlisting collectives Kakumei (anime) and Fire and Blood, I have launched quite a number of fanlistings for subjects that I adore.

Explosive musician and pilot Nekki Basara gives Heart and Soul to the mecha theme of Dynamite, fanlisting for the anime series Macross 7. Check this series out - it has awesome music!

Earlier this month, I launched the network's first actor fanlisting: Glorious, for Alan Ritchson of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (he plays District 1 Tribute Gloss) and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles reboot movies (he plays Raphael).

The network now hosts three fanlistings for characters of the Disney cartoon series Phineas and Ferb: Ferb Fletcher, Phineas Flynn and, of course, Isabella Garcia-Shapiro.

We also have two FLs on the Disney/Vooz animated series Pucca: Funny Love (for the series) and Indestructible (for the spunky titular character).

Keep an eye out for more fanlistings to launch in the very near future!

Anime Midis

Wine hues flow from Gakudan, an anime midi archive, as Fushigi Yuugi Suzaku seishi Tasuki and Tamahome grace the site's launching layout. I have been collecting midi-sequence files for many years now and thought it would be nice to share these online for creative and educational purposes.

I officially launched the website today, although the domain name was purchased 28th July last year. It was only during the summer months of 2017 that I was able to set aside some time to go back to writing, building websites and blogging, following my first year of motherhood.

The Words Escape

Wordscapism.com, my features weblog on literary works such as books, graphic novels and various other pieces, is now live.

I have long since wanted a blog where I can post and archive my reviews and opinions on the writings I have read and, finally, I officially launched the website today. The domain name was purchased last year on the 5th of March; a little more than a month later, I gave birth to my first child. Of course, motherhood and family took foremost precedence and my other pursuits and activities were sidelined for the time being. It was only during the summer months of 2017 that I was able to set aside some time to go back to writing, building websites and blogging.

Wordscapism is also available on your favorite social media channels and sharing networks: Pinterest, Tumblelog, FaceBook, GoodReads and Twitter.

The Muscat Mommy

The Muscat Mommy, a blog created to chronicle my adventures and experiences as an expatriate wife, mother and career woman based in Oman, is now live.

I have been blogging since 2001 and living in Muscat, the Sultanate's capital city, since 2007. However, believe or not, this is the first time I have put together a journal specifically focused on living in the country I have called home for so many years now. It's about time, I say, since my husband and I will be celebrating our tenth year as Oman residents on the 1st of October 2017!

As for the site title, please do not be misled by its seemingly generic, alliterative nature. The Muscat Mommy is far from being your run-of-the-mill "mommy blog." Indeed, I am a very proud mother, but I am also a full-time career woman, a sports enthusiast and an author. My adventures of late have taken for the most part in Muscat and throughout Oman, so why not blog about it all?

The Muscat Mommy is also available on your favorite social media channels and sharing networks: Pinterest, Tumblr, FaceBook, Instagram and Twitter.
