EDIT: MIGRATION COMPLETE. POST OUTDATED.
This blog is dead.
Those that have been following me for such a long time will have noticed that it’s gone from a happy cheery themed wordpress blog into a dark and somewhat emo looking non-blog.
I’ve discussed this before with several friends on Twitter. You may be one of the people I’ve asked your opinion on it – whether to continue blogging on wordpress.com…
or, to migrate my blog to an actual domain name with self-hosting.
I’ve decided to migrate!
Wait what? So Radiantdreamer isn’t dead? Naw! I wouldn’t abandon my readers just like that! To think of it in a more self-ego boosting way, it’s like Jesus resurrected. In a way, the things that I’ve been busy with, the death in the family, and some things changing in my life, now is a good time to start a new chapter for RadiantDreamer. I don’t go down THAT easily!
The migration isn’t just a simple “switch domain -> 301 redirect -> ???? -> profit!!” model here. This is where I can jump back into blogging again (because I love blogging!) and present myself in a much more enjoyable and entertaining way.
That’s the whole reason why radiantdreamer.net redirected away from my gallery, and back to this blog here. Because I was busy setting up the new blog. It’s half-way done now, and I’m happy with the results so far. But here’s the important part of this post that you WILL want to know:
For the first time ever, RadiantDreamer is holding a giveaway contest!
I’ve decided to take this migration opportunity to hold a contest. The item that I’m giving away?
This super adorable Bakemonogatari Nendoroid Puchi Set#2! Yes it’s new!
The second adorable set of three petite ‘oddities’!
From the popular anime series currently being sold on Blu-ray and DVD, ‘Bakemonogatari’, comes a second set of three more Nendoroid Petites: Suruga Kanbaru, Mayoi Hachikuji and Nadeko Sengoku!
Each character comes complete with character specific items they had in the anime – Kanbaru comes with a monkey’s paw, Mayoi has her giant backpack and Nadeko has her jacket and hat.
Yet another set that’s ready to recreate all sorts of interesting scenes in cute Nendoroid form!
?????????: Nendoroid Petite: Bakemonogatari Set #2 (???????? ?????????? ???)
????: Good Smile Company
Specifications: Painted ABS&PVC posable figure – not to scale – stands included – approximately 65mm in height (2.5 inches)
Sculptor: Hitoshi Taira
… I think I might order a set for myself.
This giveaway wouldn’t have been possible if it wasn’t for the gracious folks at animeshumi! They’re a fairly new company compared to other long-established online anime stores, but already animeshumi is trying to beat out the competition by offering fast and streamlined and accessible service, and even offering free shipping on orders over $59! That’s pretty rad if you ask me.

The contest will start once my new blog is up. The details of the contest will be announced on my new blog when this happens. (which is umm… soon.)
As such, this blog will no longer be updated (I will respond to some comments here, but that’s about it).
Right now, it’s pointing to the old blog, but when I update the feed, it will be pointing to the new blog. After you subscribe to the new feed, you can delete the old wordpress feed, as it will no longer be updated.
Since you’re at it, why not do me a favor? Tweet and let your friends know that my blog is moving, and I’m holding a contest.
Better yet, here’s the tweet for it: http://bit.ly/radiantcontestrt
So yeah, in closing, this blog is dead.
