I just felt the need to update this because I've been adding people and joining new communities (as if I don't have enough communities that I can handle) and just in case they want to check on me, well, yeah, I exist though inactive in posting.
When I go through my LJ entries especially the recent ones (if you call 2008, the last entry, recent), I realize they do not really reflect the very reason why I joined LJ. And that reason is? Arashi.
How long has it been since I started as a fan? And I'm very happy to see that the Arashi fan community is thriving, just like the boys. Of course there are problems like fans who do not respect rules of subbers and the community themselves. As someone who relies on subbers for my daily fix of Arashi, I am greatly indebted to them and it saddens me that there are others who take advantage of other people's work and make money out of it. I don't even think these are fans to begin with.
As a fan, I don't have much to contribute to the community except blog and tweet about the boys and some issues that concern the fandom and which others should know. I know that the Arashi fan community is a happy one, but it does not mean that we should close our eyes to the problems that exist within and that may even threaten the community and take away everybody's fun.
I do all these--fangirling, commentaries--outside LJ, however.
