*Update (March 8, 2015) - AP is officially dead even among pro users. I just visited the site.

AnimePaper shuts down

I was shocked when I saw the above message from AP (Anime Paper). One of my favorite resources of anime wallpapers will be shutting down for "normal users" like me. Well, I don't have a pro account so I could not access AP anymore. It's really sad to read such news (which led me to blog about it).

When the World Wide Web was not yet a favorite of everyone, there were people who still engaged themselves to blogging – with the only purpose of sharing their thoughts online. Blogging for them is just like a hobby. The only benefit they would get from it is that they could vent out their feelings. No more. No less.

However, since the evolution of the World Wide Web, they don’t only have the opportunity to share their thoughts, but now, they could also earn from it. Yes, I think internet savvy people already know about this – that they could earn money from blogging. And because of that, there are many people who have tried to enter the world of blogging – good writers, so-so writers or not.
