And We’re Back

Athena ScalziHello, everyone! Thank you all so much for the warm welcome back to the site! I am thrilled to be back (even if I don’t act that way at the staff meetings). I was excited to begin with, but all your kind comments have really made me look forward to being on the blog this summer! I truly appreciate each and every one of you.

In fact, I’d like to address a few comments in particular, starting with everyone that asked about my snack box reviews. As much as I loved Sakuraco and thoroughly enjoyed each box over the past year, I decided that one year was long enough and unsubscribed from them back in March. I found that there are only so many different types of authentic Japanese tea time snacks to be had, and I feel that I have certainly had plenty for the time being.

However, because so many people seem to like the snack boxes post (and because I myself love snacks), I have decided to try a new snack box for the summer! Which one will it be? Stay tuned and find out!

Aside from snack box reviews, I will also be doing my usual variety of entertainment and product reviews, as well as personal essays, and basically whatever else I feel like talking about. I will say I do have a few special ideas up my sleeve for this summer, but I shan’t reveal too much just yet.

I also wanted to take this time to mention that I was so excited to meet so many of y’all on the JoCo cruise back in March. Meeting you fine folks in person was really awesome, and as always I am genuinely grateful for your readership and overall kindness.

So, thanks for being here with me as I get back into the swing of things. I hope you enjoy all that is to come. I know I will!

  1. Welcome back!

    We bought several Sakuraco snack boxes last year and were duly amused. Thanks for your informative and entertaining reviews!

  2. Wub Athena!

    As someone who also sucks at most video games, but gets strangely obsessed with many even though I suck at them, I’m especially looking forward to any more video game reviews you might do!

  3. Welcome back, Athena! Can’t wait to see where you go with the blog this summer.

  4. Your writing style has matured. I like it, very readable. I’m looking forward to your next post and the snack box reveal.

  5. Hi and welcome back!
    A thought: Athena and John movie reviews.
    Always liked Siskel and Egbert point/counterpoint. I always thought they were more informative than anyone’s single opinion. And the Scalzi’s writing is always worth the time.

  6. Welcome back! You introduced me to Brin’s Jams and I have become an addict, so I am looking forward to all your reviews.

  7. Welcome back!
    Loved your reviews but don’t care about snacks, so could you review something else? <3
    Possible ideas:
    Anime/manga series
    Social trends
    Streaming services
    Gossip columns

  8. Welcome back, Athena! It’s great to have you back!

    You probably have your snack box schedule all lined up, but if you’re still considering your options, might I suggest Universal Yums? It’s fun checking out the different countries each month. (I usually subscribe for just a few months around the holidays, so I have no idea what countries they feature in the summer.)

    Looking forward to all your upcoming posts!
