    I’m sorry if it’s a double post of some kind, but I don’t see my other comment anywhere here, so I’m guessing it did’t post.

    I’ve decided to submit my application but my mail service seems to have a problem with delivering messages to info@angryanimebitches.com. Is there an alternative e-mail I can send my application to?

  2. lilgamergal says:

    Am I still able to submit? Or no D: I can write more since EXAMS OVER WOOHOO! Well almost… But I have secen exams left so I can put time here

    • Eva says:

      You can still submit :) You will be put on-hold until we open again.
      ^ v ^ / I hope the exams went well!

  3. Tenshi says:

    Oh my goodness, it’s actually open:D Yay! I’d love to submit an application but first I need to make sure that I’m up for it! Quick question: is there certain date where you’re closing recruitment? Thanks!

    Oh one more concern- I heard something (well read) that Eva had a health condition? Is this something new or an old ongoing thing, because I’m not sure I remember hearing about it…Oh, of course if it’s too personal, there’s no need to answer. I just want to make sure you’re ok.:( Either way, I hope that you get better!:)

    • Eva says:

      We close recruitment 5 – 7 weeks before a new season begins, so it would be between August and September for the FALL.

      Back in 2012 I was diagnosed with Tendonitis in both of my wrists (it actually started late 2011 but I didn’t realize the severity at the time), and I was forced to go on a 9 months hiatus due my hands and wrists being essentially crippled (MOST UNPRODUCTIVE 9 MONTHS OF MY LIFE). Tendonitis is a condition where you have if you abuse the injury too much, it will become permanent damage. That’s why it is very important to manage it properly, understand the limitations and know when to take a break in order to rest properly. Ever since I have to wear splints at the computer to reduce the swelling or when I am lifting heavy objects because I no longer have the strength to do so (it is even exhausting to do simple things like patting a dog’s tummy). That is why it is crucial to rest properly without straining it further.

      Symptoms to watch out for are tender tendons, your arm will feel hard and heavy like a rock with an icky bubbly sensation and may hurt or pinch by the slightest touch. You will experience pinches similar to pins and needles often caused by it going numb and you will often feel exhausted, drained because of the pain.

      If your wrists and/or fingers start bothering you with pinches or numbness, that’s when you should grab a pair of wrist splints and see if it helps. If it continues to persist and gets worse, make a doctor appointment to get a check up. Had I caught onto this earlier it may not have gotten this bad. That’s why I am always open to sharing my experience so that others can learn more to know what the red flags are if god forbid it happening to them too.

      • Tenshi says:

        Ok, thank you!

        Oh no that’s horrible. :( I’m sure that must suck. Thank you for the information though.However, it’s very impressive that you can still blog with this condition. I can see why you need to take a break, definitely don’t strain yourself I hope that your tendonitis gets better. ~_~ I’ll be praying for you to get better.

  4. Spiae says:

    Can I still submit?

  5. Tenshi says:

    Sorry, just for clarification, do you title the email the subject or the document (or both). And does everything go into the attached document, so that nothing required actually goes into the email message itself? Thanks:)

    • Eva says:

      Yes title both please. Be sure to include your name in the doc title so I can keep track of who is who. The email doesn’t need to have any content, you can just say hi and that’s it (some leave it entirely blank) since the application is what we need. :)

  6. obi says:

    Just wondering if you have been getting a lot of applications ?

  7. lgg says:

    If we sent an app, and we got no reply-does it mean that we werent accepted? (/w\)

    • Eva says:

      No, I always send a reply to let you know we have received it and inform you of our present status. Then once we have reviewed the application/open up again, I send you a second email/reply with the results or a follow up (if you were put on-hold) to make sure you are still interested.

      By any chance, have you sent us one and have not received a reply? If you did, please let me know if the email you have put in for the comment is the same you have applied with so I can do a thorough search.

      • lgg says:

        Okay, I did send an app (im hoping it went through o.o) and its the email I put down now. Are you able to let me know if its there? x.x

  8. lgg says:

    Okay that was the wrong email sorry Dx its the one I put now (lil) I just checked it

    • Eva says:

      Sorry for the delayed the response, I missed this comment.
      Let me know if/when you send one again, and I will be able to confirm here whether or not we have received it. Just make sure you are using the same email as you are using here to add a comment so I can match it.

  9. combatworthywombat says:

    I sent a application request for a part time blogger a couple of days ago
    just wondering what the response time usualy is
    thanks – and awesome blog!
    wombat – signing out

  10. aramire77 says:

    Does it has to be an anime? How about manga?

    • Eva says:

      Since Anime is our main subject, it is required for writers to cover anime.
      Manga, Videogames and others are the only subjects that are optional to contribute to.

  11. Nirbhay says:

    About the draft, does it have to be a review or a summary? Do you prefer I write about an anime I liked or would a mostly negative review also work?

    • Eva says:

      All we want you to do to is write an entry as you would if you were posting it to your own blog. :)

  12. Fizzy says:

    are these writers paid at all? i’m assuming not, but i thought i’d check.

  13. Blank says:

    When will you guys be starting up your applications again

    • Eva says:

      It is difficult to say since the situation/need for writers can change at any given moment.

      For the time being we are full, but you are welcomed to send us your application.
      If you do, we will put you on the “On-Hold” List, so when we do open up again, we will contact you immediately to verify if you are still interested. :)

  14. Vamoss says:

    Um…. I know the requirement says Word but my computer is messed up at the moment. I do have a Kindle (which I am using right now). If I use my Kindle will it work?

    • Eva says:

      Hi, sorry for the late reply! I don’t have a kindle, so I don’t know how it would work, but Google Docs are now also acceptable (which as been added to the post, I had forgotten to put it in when I updated this post).

  15. subconscious313 says:

    Absoulutley new to blogging but I’m not new at sharing my thoughts so I’m kind of nervous but extremely excited to see if I would be a good fit for AAB. I’ve recently decided to make my own blog for fun (haven’t finished setting it up yet) but this blog is a great representation of what I would like to accomplish. I just want somewhere to share my thoughts with people who would like to hear them. I’m not writing this to persuade you guys or anything lol, just trying to get into the swing of emptying my mind to someone other than my couple of friends. I will be legitimately applying before the deadline so I hope to meet the requirements so that I can gain this wonderful experience!! Thank you gals/guys, I hope you have a great day/week/month! See ya soon!!
