New Home: viannathegreatwhatever is now A SUNNY HAPPINESS on WP + .com + Hosted by OWS

August 13, 2015

New home

Hello everyone! Another achievement unlocked moment~

Finally, I have my own .com blog. This is such an achievement to me! It feels so legit. (happy dance)

I’ve been contemplating a lot about owning a blog because (1.) it requires a lot of time, (2.) maintaining it is such a hassle (3.) I feel like I am not consistent enough. But then, if you love something, you’ll do it wholeheartedly. I experimented myself if I can be consistent or I can really maintain a blog and yeah, 5 months, I manage to pull it off. I manage to drive some traffic without doing anything at all. I’m kind of proud of the pageviews itself.

By the way, this post is to warn all of you that as of this moment, this page is not running a 100% as what I wanted to be. I’m new to wordpress, the HTML I know is kinda (or not) different here and the CSS thingy is not really my cup of tea. I research a lot of theme and I came up with this, the one who really caught my eye is so expensive. (Cries at the corner). I might also export some of my post at viannathegreatwhatever.blogspot.com here. So, minna-san or everyone, please bear with me.

This website itself is a fruit of labor. A fruit of love. I would like to take this opportunity to thank the Lord, for giving me a chance to do this. To all my bloginspirations, whom I idolize when it comes to blogging which leads me to blogging. To Sir Windee of OWS and his family, for allowing me to ask a lot of questions and giving me clears answers to everything. To Ormoc Web Services, the best hosting service in the world out there. Up until now, I still don’t understand the pure geeky stuff about web hosting and whatnot but thank you for giving my blog a chance. My family, who are my sunshine! Friends, the old and new both I cherish a lot.


My inspiration of this name was actually an ANISON, Hare Hare Yukai (ハレ晴レユカイ) (Sunny, Sunny Happiness) by  Aya Hirano, Minori Chihara and Yūko Gotō, from the anime The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (涼宮ハルヒの憂鬱Suzumiya Haruhi no Yūutsu). I don’t know why it came to me when I was thinking of buying a domain name. I love my former name, it serve as my identity ever since I was second year high school, it was hard to let go of that name but it was really time to let go, it feels like letting go of things or growing up, it feels like packing up things and moving somewhere unfamiliar or more like reading the last chapter of Harry Potter and Naruto.

I was advice to come up of a domain name thinking about the future me 5 years from now. Will I still be updating my blog with that name? Will I still be active? Will that name be with me in those years?

Asunnyhappiness gave me that impression. I know life is not always sunny, we will all experience dark clouds in our life, there will be rains and storms but as the song said, “There’s a rainbow always after the rain,” but scientifically, rainbows can’t be made without a ray of sunlight or sunshine that is bent (refracted) while entering a droplet of water and reflected. The sun is also giving light at the back of the observer at a low distance up or angle. Lol.

This blog is like a warm hugs to everyone. As promise with my previous blog, I’ll share to inspire and spread the positivity and good vibes. There will times of darkness, for sure but I’ll limit myself and focus more on the lesson learned after the darkness.

I also considered myself as a sunny, funny, bubbly and ‘kalog’ or shonga. I may be shy and quite at first, but I’m really a talker but also good listener if you’ll get to know me. I cry over little things. When I decided to do something, I’ll give my 101% to that. I never did a half-ass work.

My blog will still be the same, a ramdom otaku, kawaii, lifestyle and sometimes travel blog but there’s some new topics. I will inject some motivational / positivity / self-help post and some financial tips from a certified ‘kuripot girl’ daw, like me.

Let’s cheer to my new home! And see you soon on my future post!

PS: How’s my theme? Kinda girlish, eh? Hehe.

    Hi Vianna. Congratulations on your new web home. I’m so happy for you 🙂

    I’ve owned several domains and websites in my life so most of the time I neglect these things but reading your post reminded me to celebrate the little things.

    I can only wish for your success and thank you always for the huge support for Kawaii Lovers Cebu.

      Thank you so much, Miss Jane. I was thinking that owning a domain is such a complicated thing. I’m learning day by day.

      More power to Kawaii Lovers Cebu! KLC is the nearest Kawaii community to me, so I’m helping it spread the kawaii culture in our region in my own little ways 🙂

    I just got the time to finally do some blog hopping. This makes me so happy, finally Vi 🙂 Maintaining a blog is so crucial, but somehow it’s worth it. It’s also a stress reliever. So there’s this OWS? I’m just wondering if it’s affordable ba? or same rajud sa mga online hosting? 🙂 Basta, happy for you Vi. By the way, you’re in Ormoc? Will be home by next week, hope we’ll get to hangout. Haha

    • Reply Vianna August 15, 2015 at 9:39 am

      Thank you, Louuuu! Agree on the stress reliever part! With the OWS, yes they are affordable but I really don’t know on the online hosting part. And yes, naa kos Ormoc. Bitaw, let’s hangout! haha. (secretly hoping na naa sad blogging community diri)

      • Reply Lou Castaneda August 18, 2015 at 10:50 am
