This post is inspired by all my fans. I’ve learnt a lot from blogging/translating and today I would like to share some of my discoveries and wisdom with you all. 😉
5 types of fans
- The silent lurkers
These are the type of fans that never make a single comment, click a single like, or say anything in general. Basically, you don’t even know they exist. They’re just silently supporting you.
- The hardcore supporters
These are the type of fans that are extremely passionate about your work. They are relentless, intense, and extremely vocal. They’re the type that will tell everyone about your creation and constantly write encouraging comments to motivate you.
Without hardcore supporters, it is almost impossible for creators to continue.
- The generous givers
These are the type of fans that see enough value in your work and are willing to donate or support you on patreon. These fans are extremely rare but are absolutely essential if you want to make a living out of your creation.

I thought they would reactivate my ads after this, and they did unblock my site. However, they sent me a response saying, “I cannot promise when, or if, ads will begin displaying again in the future.”
I was so depressed. What made it worse was when I found out my ad revenue amount for the month of June; I had over 115k views and they gave me $0.88.
I felt like I was scammed. And I felt so helpless. Continue reading “My translation struggles”
