Blogger in the Spotlight: Matt in the Hat

Thanks for the spotlight, Kat!

Oh for shame Grimms!

I haven’t done a Blogger in the Spotlight post in ages! This is seriously one of my favorite posts to do but between pregnancy and the birth of our son I have dropped the ball. I’m glad to finally bring it back to GrimmGirl.

Many of you may not know what this post series is about since I haven’t done one since you started following. I’ll break it down for you. Once a month I showcase a blogger I really enjoy and give you three reasons to check them out.

I’m all about supporting each other in the community and this is one of the ways I feel I’m able to do it.

With out further ado I present to you Matt in the Hat!

Reason One: Sincerity

If you are just hearing about Matt’s anime themed blog then you are in for a treat…

Keith | Final Fantasy XV -Fanfic Story-

This is the first fanfiction I ever read and I love it!


I created my own FFXV character. Her name is Keith. I created her after watching KINGSGLAIVE: FINAL FANTASY XV. I’m really inspired by the movie and the game that released on November 29 2016, that is FINAL FANTASY XV. 😊

Keith’s Profile

Keith became closest friend with Noctis, Prompto, Ignis, and Gladio. She does have feelings with the Prince, but she knew that Noctis and Luna are meant for eachother, so she won’t get in Luna’s way. She’s very respectful to royal people, especially to Prince Noctis and Princess Lunafreya.

Powers & Abilities

Keith has 4 powers. She recieved the power from a strange Crystal that has been hidden in a strange cave for many years. She got the powers when she was 9 years old, the day she lost her home. She has Ice, Fire, Timebreak (it’s not actually a timebreak, I’ve been trying to find the…

6 Years of Square Portal | Thank you!



Dear Reader,

Today marks the 6th anniversary of Square Portal and I’d like to thank you for your support and love! It’s hard to believe I’ve been doing this for over half a decade already and still have a drive to push things forward – very passionately! Well, with impressive and exciting games, side projects, events, amazing community, new friends – even personal growth –  it’s hardly surprising, as they all have made the journey extremely memorable and highlighting my life as an individual. So, Thank You!
As Square Portal and I are one and the same thing, it has become a very personal, ambitious project over the years. Especially with the new changes coming in 2017. I’d say sometimes it is too much for one person to handle everything, but that way, it’s also more rewarding. These past months outside of Final Fantasy XV content has been a bit dry, but…

10 Symptoms Showing That You Might be a Helicopter Blogger


I’m sure you already heard of “helicopter parents”.  It’s a term for obsessively overprotective parents who “hover” around their children; thus the term “helicopter”.

As bloggers, especially personal bloggers like me, we all aim to carve our place in this vast blogosphere.  We want our blogs to succeed.  We need to spend time and effort in order to have successful blogs, even though the definition of “successful” differs for each blogger.  That’s why despite our busy personal lives, we still make sure to take some time to write posts and interact with other bloggers.  Some do it a little everyday.  Some once or twice a week.  Some even do it once a month or less.  All common, but what is too much blogging?

There is a fine line between blogging for success and blogging because you’re completely obsessed and addicted.

How to Maintain & Increase Your Blogging Motivation


I’ve been an aniblogger here in Fujinsei for 2 years now.  It might not seem that long to you but trust me when I say this, the majority of new blogs are deleted by their owners within 3 months.  Only 3 months!  I think that one of the most important issues facing bloggers is lost of motivation/interest.  Sure, we’re all so pumped and so excited when we create our first blogs, harbouring all of these dreams of hitting it big.  And then we experience first-hand the harsh reality of the extremely competitive blogging world.  Our dreams are dashed, our self-confidence beaten to a pulp.  And the next thing we know, we’re clicking “Delete Blog”.  The end.

It doesn’t have to be this way.  If you learn how to manage your motivation and work hard in keeping it alive, theoretically you’ll be able to blog for a long time.  So here…

1. What made you create a blog? 

I started this blog because it was required for a college class. I took an English class and my professor wanted to create a WordPress account in order to get graded. I spent about a month and a half blogging about current news in the United States every week. Once I got done with the class, I stopped blogging. By the beginning of 2015, I decided to come back dedicate it to my…
