Last Week Today: Week End Recap- Aug. 28th to Sept. 3rd

Hello Heroes and Travelers, here we are at the end of another week here on Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! So, I know I’m super late with this, but it’s Labor Day Weekend here in the States and I have been busy! I have been working in the revisions for the manuscript I mentioned last week. Let me tell you, editing a paper like this is extremely time consuming, and I’ve barely made much headway. In order to get away from the paper for a bit, I went to a thrift store and found a few books that I just had to add to my collection.

A special shout out to The Well-Red Mage and Pink-chan for also nominating me for the Entertainer Blogger Award! Even though I already wrote a post for the award, I still wanted to give a shout out to both of these amazing blogger! Thanks for thinking of me!! 😀

Lastly, this was a very big week for Nice Job Breaking It, Hero! I had my first ever collaboration with fellow blogger and buddy, Katrina Sade over at GrimmGirl! It was so much fun working with such an amazing blogger and this definitely won’t be the last time we work together! So, keep an eye out for part 2 in the near future!

*Ah yeah, check out the Housekeeping section of the post, as I have made some changes to Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!

Here we are again at the end of another Recap Post, where I highlight four interesting posts from other bloggers that showed up on my Reader this past week…

How to Maintain & Increase Your Blogging Motivation This post is from Arria Cross over at Fujinsei I simply love helpful blogging tips posts! This time I stumbled upon a true gem for any blogger. Arria Cross has outlined some key tips to help keep you motivated, no matter what your blogging journey may have in store for you. This is a must read for all bloggers! (Also, don’t forget to participate in the 5th Fujinsei Carnival on Sept 5th!)

Let’s Rant on: FtP Otomobage– This post is from HijackedCat over at Another Gaming Day! It is no secret that I am not a fan of Free to Play mobile otome games, in fact I avoid them like the plague (when I can). Well it was like HijackedCat read my mind or something because this is one of the most relatable rants I’ve read in a long time. Definitely worth the read if you’ve ever been burned by F2P games! 

NEETaku Goes Off-Topic: Korrasami Doesn’t Feel Canon– This post is from NEETaku over at Just…My 2 Cents! While I enjoyed The Legend of Korra, I think I like it’s predecessor a bit more. So, when I saw that NEETaku had written a post about one of the most talked about aspects of Korra, I just knew I was in for something special. This is and honest and humorous post, and I actually agree with many of their points. So, definitely take a look at this post if you’re in the mood for something a bit controversial, but fun!

Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone: Mini Review/Five Things The Movie Won’t Tell You– This post is from Katrina Sade over at GrimmGirl! Ah and last, but not least, I spent all of my childhood and most of my adult life on the Harry Potter series. So, when I saw that Katrina Sade had written a post comparing the books to the films, I just had to give it a read! This is a must read for any die hard HP fan, you won’t be disappointed!


So here we are at the end of this week’s post! Be sure to check out some of the bloggers from this week’s Weekly Blogger Spotlight, and drop them a line! Strike up a conversation or make a new friend! Don’t be shy get out there and mingle!😉Also, don’t worry if your post wasn’t featured in this week’s post, keep writing and keep posting! I’ll keep my eye out!

See something in your Reader this week that you wanna share? Tell me what you think about my post? Anything you want to see more of? Less of? Have an idea for a post? Shoot me a line in the comments section  or Ask Me anonymously on my Tumblr! Don’t be shy, I swear I don’t bite! I appreciate input and discussions from my readers so let your voice be heard…and finally, as always Thank You for reading!

    1. Thanks Leafy!!! I have some backup posts to get me through the next few weeks and a few random drafts in the works, so I should be fine (fingers crossed)

      Norn9 is on my I need a break pile for a bit lol… I can’t even with that game right now.

      Kakeru is a dream in his own route, but everywhere else *crosses self* he’s a monster lol

      1. Haha well that’s great!! I really should start considering blogging more frequently but I’m not too sure. I created it to blog entirely about otoge to review but seeing how much fun and enthusiasm you have I can’t help but want to try blogging more frequently! ^^
        And I’ve been bad…I spent more money on mobile games and even went out and got another google play giftcard.
        Yeah, I can’t fault you for putting Norn down. It wasn’t good tbh, and I mean it’s great if other people love it, really. I just personally didn’t get it. And lol Kakeru x Peach Tree is all he deserves 😛

      2. Aww man, you are always too good to me! You always say the sweetest things and get me all pumped to blog more! But, I’m sure you’ll figure something out! Ya know a schedule that works best for you. Plus your reviews are like a welcome treat, they are always so funny while still being super informative! And don’t get me started on your character nicknames lol, those are hilarious!!

        I know exactly what you mean about these mobile games… They make my bank account weep. I actually went through and listed out all of the mobile games i have and all of the characters I purchased. I found so many games and character routes that I didn’t even remember buying!

        Norn was hit or miss, some routes were great and others…. eh, not so much. LMAO! Kakeru x Peach Tree is the new OTP!!!

      3. *hugs* Gurl, I’m so glad we started blogging at the same time and somehow found each other’s blogs. Seriously, you’re one of the most supportive people I’ve met here. XD
        And awww you really are too sweet
        I think we’re both stuck in this world of otoge and losing money….not necessarily a bad thing until you realize you have classes and textbooks to pay for….-_-
        I wonder if Kakerux Peach Tree will get some fanart;)

      4. *hugs back* Yup, yup same!! We’ve had each other’s backs for awhile now too!

        If only money just rained from the sky or better yet if only otoge rained from the sky!!

        Thank goodness I don’t have to buy textbooks anymore! My Psych books were expensive, like 150-200 a pop!

        If I could draw! I would draw it myself lol!…hmmm maybe a stick figure would work….

      5. OOOOOOOOH, BBFFLs! Yes, we have too!

        If only… maybe the otoge over lords will take pity on our wallets one of these days…

        Oh my gosh that’s right! Med school books must be through the roof!!

        lol, all I can draw are bears and stick figures lol. 😛

      6. Here’s to forever lol!
        Right? Please rain down on us bloggers. We fork over so much cash it’s starting to kill us. Or you know, transport us to our own harems 😉
        Hahah sure is! At least my Bio text is going to last me for 3 semesters so I won’t have to buy 3 new ones -_-
        You can draw BEARS?! Gurl don’t say you can’t draw if you can draw them!! :O

      7. To infinity and beyond!!

        Yes, I’d definitely want my own personal harem! That is worth it’s weight in gold!

        Oh that’s seriously amazing! A three in one book!!

        kind of, cute bear heads. I used to put them on all of the receipts at my old job 😛

    Thanks so much for liking my post enough to feature it! ⸍⚙̥ꇴ⚙̥⸌

    1. LOL, yup! I meant to write them all up this summer, but it looks like that isn’t gonna happen anytime soon 😛

      Aww thank you Nessa!! I thought it was about time I fixed the menu a bit 😛

      It was my pleasure, I love rants in general, but when someone rants about F2P mobile games… perfection!

  2. So much games! Aaaah. You know just a couple of days ago, there were a lot of otoge recommended to me on my Google Play Store & I was so tempted to download & install all of them. But then I knew that I’ll be returning to school in a week so it would be very problematic for me if I became obsessed which I definitely will.

    And anyway, my biggest thanks to you for featuring my post about blogging motivation. I greatly appreciate it. Keep on blogging and tempting all of us into playing otoge. Cheers!

    Liked by 1 person

    1. Awww man, you were so close to getting sucked in!!! But, I know what you mean, when I start a new game, I tend to put everything else on the back burner. So it was probably a for the best that you didn’t download any. But at least now you have a list to choose from in the future!!

      Also, my pleasure! It was a very helpful post and I feel like a lot of bloggers would benefit from reading it!!

      Will do! Temptress isn’t just my title, it’s a way of life!
