Introducing the New Blood

Time to reveal the New Blood of Metanorn. Welcome our Freshies~

Oh hello thar! Not been a long time but it’s good to see you all sticking around and multiplying our clicks! Metanorn has grown considerably since it started three years ago (minus a few days). I got some planned stuff for the big day but let me not go ahead of myself rather to the introduction of new team and some quick updates.

Interestingly, we get a million hits up whenever we hire some fresh blood and it was SO CLOSE this time around… like 0.2M to the next landmark but we haven’t reached that yet so expect an update on that most probably by the end of next month. Coming to the fresh meat, my humblest thank you to every participant, who took out time in applying for Metanorn. Every time the quality simply ups more than a notch, making it double difficult on the team and myself in judging. I mean, we literally had to break it up into two rounds and there were multiple conferences just to finalize them. For those who did not make it, you can touch base with me anytime if you want to get more pointers or clarity (for those who have and I haven’t replied yet, I am on it). There were some hits and misses this time around but time is of the essence and that is how we roll.

You can see, the team page has been updated with the recent profiles and moves. Subtracting Will, me and anyone on hiatus, we have picked three more anibloggers to reach the ideal number of ten active authors. With our podcast MetaVerse kicking in, a lot of duties have been divided into the team like Hato being semi-available for podcasts alone, while Jrow of Anivision specially hired for editing podcast. There might be more future projects with so many minds pumping out creative juices, but we have become one cohesive team with me pointing the way with a spear (I just had a 300 flashback, excuse me).

Before getting to the profiles, a few thank yous are in order!

  • Our Readers/Lurkers: THANK YOU! We have so much fun here at Metanorn, just because you make it lively. My team and I humbly thank you~ <3
  • Another thank you for the 2000+ listens to MetaVerse till now! I could not have forecasted this… ever!
  • Also, much love for making Met’Amour popular. Who would have thought a game we made as an experiment would be so hit?
  • We’ll soon be on the AAA network as we’ve been offered to partner with AAA podcast. So, do check us out if you haven’t already!
  • If you want to link exchange with Metanorn, I’m just an email away.
  • We record the next episode of MetaVerse tomorrow, so got any questions for Scamp? Head to MetaQ to ask them nao!
  • Again, thanks for all the love and special bishieness love for our regulars. xD
