So, yeah, umm, this blog is now more than two years old. It is not a terribly long time, but I guess it is something.
Toxic Muffin’s Glorious history
Way back, when Shakugan no Shana’s second season was airing, a friend of my brother’s showed me THAT Animeblog. I began to follow them though at the time I only followed them for their season previews and in general to get an idea of what anime were airing. I don’t even remember their writing staff (though I am sure Crusader was one of them and EO joined shortly after). I do not exactly what sparked it, but in the Summer of 2009 (July 17th to be exact), I opened up a blogger blog with the serious intention of occasionally blogging stuff.
Unfortunately, since I was stupid at the time (I am still stupid, just less so), I could not find the “Page Views” page and therefore formed the assumption that since no one was commenting, no one was reading. Feeling disheartened and ronery (intentional spelling error), I stopped. Actually, looking at the dates of the post, I am now more inclined to think that I was just lazy. That blog had at most 5 proper posts, summing up to a total of 8 posts.
Then in May of 2010, THAT opened up recruiting and began to look for new bloggers to advance their cause. Being the upshot that I was, I figured that I would apply, blog about stuff and become internet famous. With my mind all set, I began to procrastinate. I procrastinated some more and then even more. Then the deadline flew right by me. I shrugged; I had seen that coming.
Shortly afterwards, I came to the conclusion that there was of course nothing wrong with me. No, the problem was with Blogger. Yes, that was it! Blogger was holding me down! Okay, it was time to try the platform that all the cool kids used. So, in what is now known as my final summer vacation, I opened up Toxic Muffin. The rest is history. (If you are curious, this was my first post on this blog.)
Anyway, that is enough history. Time for some gloating.
Here is a list of this blogs awesome achievements:
- Survived a grizzly attack by grizzly bears.
- Fended of an army of die-hard otaku’s who wanted more loli pictures.
- Has lived for 2 years.
- Is run by the world’s greatest baker, whose baked goods are to die for.
At least one of the above is true, but at most two are true. I will let you guess the rest.

Oh right, here is some picture spam.
