Q&A With Jaysmouse (I’m back)

First off this is not another “I’m inactive again” Post!!! 🎉

Secondly I have some excuses reasons for being inactive. First of all I was finishing school and have been pretty busy, and I forgot my username for the club. I know those aren’t the best reasons ever…. but I’m back now, and I will most likely be posting every week. If I don’t spam me on discord until I give in. (my username is Cyroze#7904 if you want to add me lol)

Anyways lets get to the actual post now.

So I decided to check my email for once in a few months, which was probably a good decision because I saw a email from JaySmouse about a Q&A I asked him to do like a half a year ago. Thanks for reminding me because I completely forgot.

I have done a Q&A before, but this one should have different questions I think..

1: What is the first episode or album you remember listening to?

I believe it was the Green Ring Conspiracy when it was just released, but I’m not sure about what first episode I listened to. Probably one of these, but I’m not sure.

2: When did you first hear AIO and when did you start listening consistently?

First started around 2013 and started listening consistently around 2018 (maybe 2017)

3: What is your least favourite episode and why?

That’s hard….. I honestly have no idea. I might make a separate post on it once I think about it more.

4: When did you first get involved in the AIO community?

Around 2019 when I started my blog, then I met all of you wonderful people

5: What or who inspired you to start the AIO Insider?

I was reading all of the blogs around 2018 and I was just like, “that would be fun to try” and here I am

6: What goals did you have in mind when you started your blog?

Not to become inactive. 😭

7: How have your goals for the AIO Insider changed?

My goal now is to not be a lazy person and make a post every week.

8: What do you have planned for the future of the AIO Insider?

Reviews, interviews, podcasts, competitions, and more.

Anyways yaaaaaaaaaa

According to wordpress statistics, only a small percentage of viewers are followed, so if you would, Hit the follow button! 😂

Blog Updates and Schedule

Hey guys! Today I decided to make a schedule for the blog. These posts will be posted every week unless some real life obligation takes priority. Here are the things I’m planning:

~ Mystery Monday

In Mystery Monday, I will be posting something random, whether it’s fan fiction, rants, and more. Basically it will just be a random fun post that has something to do with AIO

~ Fan Art Friday

In Fan Art Friday, It’s pretty much self-explanatory. I’ll be posting my AIO fan art! I’m most excited about this one.

In between these, I’ll be posting updates, competitions, and news.

If you guys have any other suggestions, leave a comment!

Updates

I have updates on the Blogger Competition and Fan Art Competition. First, There is a limit on votes per month. Only 30. I have to pay if I want more. I don’t see any reason to pay for more votes. If your planning to vote, save it to around September 30. For the Fan Art Competition, I only got 1 entire, so I will extend the deadline to September 14. You can send any Odyssey art you have done. Tell me in the comments if you have any questions!

Posted in Extras, Miscellaneous, Q & A

Blog Q&A

Thanks everyone for the questions! Let’s start.

If you could visit anywhere fictional (besides Odyssey of course) where would you go?

Marisa

I would have to pick the setting of my favorite book, Warriors.

Which aio podcast is your favorite? (besides your own lol).

Marisa

The AIO Wiki Podcast

Which oa club exclusive episode is your favorite?

Marisa

That’s tough… I really don’t know. Maybe A Predicament Of Biblical Proportions, or Thirty Jay’s Hath September. I could go on. I just really haven’t picked a favorite yet.

Where do you see your blog or your blogging endeavors two years from now?

Lee Acim

I see more Podcast Episodes, more reviews, and other than that, I see myself posting like I do now. I assume maybe 40 Followers by 2021.

Why did you start the AIO Insider?

GabrielMatthew

I had major inspiration from AIO Audio News and Welcome to Odyssey. I decided it would be fun to make a blog about Odyssey. I’m glad I did.

Why do you call it the AIO Insider.

GabrielMatthew

I don’t really know why I called it that. I assume I was brainstorming ideas in my mind, and that popped in, and I used it because it was original and fit the theme I wanted my blog to have.

Which AIO character describes you best?

Carl

I’d say Buddy Norman. He mirrors my creative mind (although not as creative as his insane imaginations).

When did you first listen to AIO?

Raegan

Around 2011

What did you imagine your blog would be like now when you started it? We’re your expectations surpassed? Disappointed?

Jay Smouse

I didn’t expect to get this far. I had a few ups and downs, not knowing whether to continue or quit, but all of the support kept me going. My expectations were maybe 10 followers, and I have 25 now. Again, thank you guys so much for your support.

Thank you guys again!

And as a throwback to my old posts,

Peace Out ✌🏻

Odyssey Blogs, and Q & A

Hey guys! So I made a bar graph recently showcasing Odyssey over the years. This took a lot of effort, but here it is.

keep in mind that not everything is 100% accurate. It’s very interesting to see the stats over the years.

Anyways, I also want to do a Q & A on this blog, so, leave any questions you have for me in the comments. It can be like “what is your favorite character”, or “when did you start listening”. I’ll make the post once I have 5 or more questions.
