There’s a certain magnetic pull some Anime Critics and Anime YouTubers have which makes them become popular.
Sometimes it’s natural from day one.
Sometimes it’s created over years of hard work.
But why not you? There’s no reason that you can’t forge a similar kind of pull.
While apart of the same community, each anime blog and channel is different and when I examine the majority of them, I consistently return to four aspects that keep pulling me back for more:
It’s All In The Connection
To name a critic who exemplify all of those things look no further than Emily Rand.
We often check out recommended anime critics and their blogs or channels, but where we visit isn’t always somewhere we will return to.
So, assuming their content interests you, if you’re drawn in and become a subscriber to any anime content creator, ask yourself why.
It is within your answer where you will discover what each of their personal touch of magnetic pull is for you.
I believe you’ll find that each content creator you become a regular viewer of creates a special kind of connection with you.
It’s All In How You Say It
Most anime blogs and channels share information we may already know or have read/seen somewhere else before. It’s a spin or alternate view that makes us pause.
What makes the real difference is how they tell their stories. You can count on them telling their stories in their own personal way, each and every time.
It’s in their voice where the wand is waved, the connection is made and where the content truly comes to life.
The pull is in their voice. The pull is their voice. They provoke us to think “it’s about you.”
And as you should know, “you” is a very powerful word when it comes to anime content creation.
Each of us has a voice. And that’s where the magnetic pull lives and breathes.
However, utilizing one’s voice is also where most of us struggle.
Two reasons we struggle are we focused too much on the technical aspects of our writing or the information we are providing, and not focused enough on how we’re saying it.
It’s vitally important to say what you want to say how you want to say it.
Think of a time when you were most relaxed, perhaps having coffee with a friend and the conversation between the two of you simply flowed with ease.
See what I mean?
That’s why after we’ve read a good blog post or watched a solid video for that matter, we feel like we just had a delicious cup of coffee with a good friend.
It’s All In The Focus
Popularity isn’t the true focus. You know that.
If it was, we would all be rolling out clickbaity Top Lists that deliver minimal value.
However, everything is measurable and in the critic’s world a clear indicator you’ve tapped into your magnetic pull is your readership is growing.
If your readership is not growing and you are confident the content you are providing is beneficial, then consider your voice.
Sometimes we could use a little help in discovering, honing and using our voice. This is absolutely normal.
To do so, try to write as naturally as possible. Personally I consider first drafts ridiculously valuable, because most of us don’t expect to actually use it and this helps us write without over thinking our presentation.
Keep in mind that it’s well worth it.
Because whenever content is pretty much the same between multiple blogs, it’s the magnetic pull of the writer’s voice that makes the difference.
