The Eunuch is Pregnant: Chapter 171

To my dear readers,

This chapter is so boring. lol.. it’s the chapter where Dongfang Bai plays the guqin and Le Yao Yao wants to learn. The original raws had over 6000 characters describing it. I’ve cut down a lot of the boring stuff and tried to get straight to the point.

Please understand that in China, the authors of web novels get paid based on the number of characters they write. So, most of the time, there’s a lot of repetition and useless information. If I could, I would skip this chapter but I have to translate it since Leng Jun Yu is going to see them together after…*dun dun dun*.

Anyhow, I will release the full chapter in a few hours. In the meantime, I’ll start translating the next chapter so you guys don’t have to wait as long for 172. (Sorry, I went out yesterday so I took a break from translating.)

Haha. You can watch a clip of me singing an old Cantonese song. I was laughing so hard because my friends kept making fun of me. I included English subtitles!! Click CC! (If you want me to sing properly, go check out my IG @grace7127)

In addition, I’ve created a fb fanpage!! Come follow/like me at https://www.facebook.com/theeunuchispregnant/ If you comment or post anything, I promise I will reply back! (I don’t respond to all comments on this site anymore because I have too many and I feel overwhelmed). I asked you guys the question, “What is your favourite scene from the novel so far?” Hehe. Respond and let me know! I’ll reply back to you guys tonight. 😉   The more you guys comment, like, share, or talk about the novel on facebook, the higher the likelihood others will discover this novel and give it a try. Translating is a lot like being an artist. We have to promote or market our work constantly or no one will ever discover us.

By the way, I’m going to see what happens if I do not link another post. Readlightnovel’s bots are too advanced and still manages to keep stealing. I want to see if I can make this announcement post so long that they would assume this is the chapter instead. In the past, when I used to translate on my original blog, the bots would automatically assume my posts were the chapter itself (no links). So I think if I make this post long enough, the bots will assume this is the chapter.

So I should take the time to write a lot right now. Let me think. Oh yeah! Another reason why I started a fb fanpage is because it makes it harder for me to quit. Personally, I’ve been quite good at being consistent with my releases, but I feel like my temper is very bad. I get so angry at random readers whenever I read their comments from other aggregator sites. They make me want to quit. I’m lucky that I don’t have readers who tell me in my face that I’m too slow and I should just quit so other translators can take over. On volare, I have many colleagues who get treated terribly by readers. In fact, one of my good friends, Prem (the original translator of MY WIFE IS A BEAUTIFUL CEO), told me that there were readers who literally would say to him, “I hate you so much that I read from an aggregator so that you cannot earn any ad revenue from me. You should just quit and let someone else translate because you’re so slow and you’re a piece of shit. You owe us. You don’t stick to your schedule. You’re selfish. You’re ruining my reading experience.” Can you believe it?! He is translating and readers are reading it FOR FREE and they treat him like garbage!! I know he was really slow, but it really kills our motivation if readers do that to us. Although we do get paid ad revenue on volare, unless your novel is incredibly popular, you’re barely making anything. We get paid based on views (per thousand *kinda like youtube*). So, if you only get around 10k views a month, the amount that you earn can only afford you a starbucks drink in a first world country. You might spend hundreds and thousands of hours, but in the end, if no one wants to read your work, you’re screwed. It is similar to those Kpop artists. You can work super hard, but there is no guarantee you will have a fan base.

It is REALLY REALLY REALLY hard to get views and loyal fans. There are hundreds of novels out there and so much competition. I’m fortunate that “The Eunuch is Pregnant” has a very niche and loyal audience. You guys are so nice to me and no one has threatened to make me quit as of yet. (Actually, if anyone threatened to make me quit, I would just quit lol… and only translate on my patrons and those who I feel like I have a financial obligation to do so since they have supported me when they didn’t have to).

Okay, this post is so long now. It should be enough to be mistaken as a chapter lol.  I’ll link the chapter later at the end so just come back and check here. <3  you guys! Thanks for being patient. Check out my other translations if you’re dying from the wait. Wow, this post has over 900 words. Damn, I am good.

Here is Chapter 171

The Eunuch is Pregnant: Chapter 170

To my dear readers,

I would like to thank Malina for her donation to me! Malina has donated so many times to me that I’ve lost count. Thank you for all those supportive messages. I’m honoured you see so much value in my work.

Furthermore, I would like to thank everyone who have continuously supported in the past until now. Thank you for all the nice messages, financial support, and clicks. It really motivates me to keep going. You all know that I have crazy mood swings at times and I have a tendency to rant a lot; but ultimately, I try my best to stick to my commitment. It has almost been a year since I’ve started translating “The Eunuch is Pregnant”. Time sure flies…

The chapter will be released in a few hours. I feel so bad for Dongfang Bai…*sigh*. Anyhow, the bots can steal this post today. I just wrote it for volare last night. It’s one of those “Dear Grace” posts. Dear Grace, how can I get my ex back?

The novel is moving so slow, I feel like my brain is going to rot. lol. I know you guys are really impatient. But think of me! I’m the one translating it! It only takes you 5 minutes to read!! >_<”

I’m trying to cut down more bs but there are some stuff I can’t cut out because it leads to one thing and then another. I always try to limit the description of the weather/bodies/environment.

Come back in a few hours for the chapter. And please click an ad for me if you see this. (Just one). I might be able to get paid by adsense this month! (Just like youtube, they only pay you when you reach $100)

By the way, if you don’t already know, I’m also the translator of “Your Highness, I know my wrongs.” It is completed on volare (95 chapters). I’m also the translator of “Supernatural Girlfriend”. The 4th arc has just ended and the 5th one will be the most exciting yet (115 chapters have been released). Please check those novels out if you’re dying from the wait.

Here is Chapter 170

I’ve just created a fb fanpage for this novel. If you want, follow me!! https://www.facebook.com/theeunuchispregnant/ <– readers can discuss the novel here. And it’s easier for me to answer comments too.

Sometimes, I’ll be posting hilarious screenshots of comments I like 😉

The Eunuch is Pregnant: Chapter 169

To my dear readers,

I would like to thank Alicia P for her donation to me! Thank you for choosing to support me. I’m grateful for any amount of donations or pledges.

Next, this chapter is 129 of the raws. I’ve already tried to get rid of a lot of unnecessary information. It will be released later tonight. People keep asking me when Leng Jun Yu will find out Le Yao Yao is female. I’ve answered that question at least 50 times lol. Please check the FAQ. He finds out at 155 of the raws. I don’t know how long it will take me to get there because the length of each chapter varies. I’m working on it, guys. In between, a lot of stuff will happen. Both Leng Jun Yu and Nangong Jun Xi will confess to Le Yao Yao (before knowing “he” is a “she”). We also have the jealous Nian Sulan trying to get rid of Le Yao Yao and etc…Dongfang Bai finds out she is pregnant before Le Yao Yao realizes it. He finds out on Chapter 139 of the raws or something.

Anyhow, this is the post that the bots can steal today. I bash social media so much but I still use it. Haha. Check out here

I know I’m really slow but I promise you I’m really not trying to torture you guys on purpose. My slow brain cannot convert Chinese to English so fast. This is going to be the 3rd chapter of the week. If you guys like my work, please turn off adblock and consider clicking an ad. It makes a huge difference. You would think I should be making more money now that I have more readers and viewers. But my ad revenue has been dropping every month lol…it is getting harder and harder to compete with other sites. I need all the views I can get & aggregator sites are just making it worse. *Sigh* Come back in a few hours for the actual chapter.

Here is Chapter 169

The Eunuch is Pregnant: Chapter 168

To my dear readers,

I’m still on Chapter 128 of the raws! I know you guys are impatient but I can’t help it if the author makes it so long. The original has 12000+ Chinese characters. I’ve already cut down a lot…

Anyhow, today, the bots can steal my post on Addiction (It’s funny because you guys are probably reading this since you’re so addicted!!! :P).

Sadly, people are still stealing my work. But for some sites, they steal my blog posts instead. That is why I always delay my releases by a few hours.

One of you suggested I should force people to watch ads and stuff to increase revenue, but I can’t. I don’t know how to code and I’m really really really bad with technology. (I actually had to google how to turn off an iphone before. So yeah….now you have an idea)

Eventually, I am going to try locking the chapters privately. If the sites are still going to keep stealing, I might only be posting on patreon. (Note: I’m not trying to punish you guys or make you guys pay to read. But I know if I post on patreon, my translations won’t be stolen by bots since the bots will not be my patron!) It is super annoying for me because I have spent hundreds and hundreds of hours translating only to get my work stolen by so many sites (Together, they have stolen millions of views from me). Keep in mind that ad revenue is almost non existent (Ex. $0.13 for 700 views… ). But that will be determined later on. Right now, I still have a long long way to go before 155 (when Leng Jun Yu finds out Le Yao Yao is female). We’ll see then.

I will release the chapter later today. Don’t worry. I know this is only the 2nd chapter of the week. I still owe you guys two more this week. Then, for the next two weeks, I will still be releasing 4x since 11 of you guys participated in the art content last month (I promised 1 bonus chapter for every 5 submissions). I will get it done. You may have to wait a day or two in between, but I will get to it. If you’re impatient, please consider reading my other work (Supernatural Girlfriend on volare) or my blog at liveandlearn88.com. Or just read whatever you want in the meantime while you wait. Sorry for the long announcement. Please turn off adblock and click an ad to support me.

Here is Chapter 168

The Eunuch is Pregnant: Chapter 166

To my dear readers,

Thank you for being patient and not rushing me to translate. I feel like I really need a break from translating, but I don’t want to disappoint you guys (And I have to keep my promises of 4x chapters for the next 4 weeks lol. This will be the 4th chapter of this week *The chapter is already posted. Just scroll down to the bottom of this post*).

In addition, I would like to thank Kolap S, Corine T, and Samia P for their generous donations to me. Furthermore, I would also like to thank Roselyn M for becoming my patron. You guys must have loved chapter 165. I’ve never received so many donations in one day before. :P. Thank you so much for choosing to support me. It means a lot because I know you guys could’ve spent the money on yourselves instead. Yet, you chose to support me. *cries*.

Translating is really tough and from time to time, I always feel like rage quitting because it is so easy to quit. I think it’s because no one hired me to do it (so I have to constantly push myself and keep myself accountable). Don’t get me wrong; there are days where I feel like I’m unstoppable. But there are also days when I feel like, “Why am I doing this? What am I getting out of it?” (You know, my own self interest -_-“).

I am honestly grateful for all the love and support you guys give me. Thanks for being patient as I cannot translate so fast. I’m also the translator of Supernatural Girlfriend on volare (Please give it a try if you haven’t already. Over 110 chapters have been released so far.) So, I have to balance my time between these two novels. Eventually, when I’m done with SG, I can spend more time translating this.

Today, the bots can steal this post <– It is very empowering and I hope it can inspire and motivate some of you. <3  you all and thanks for reading on my site instead of an aggregator.

P.S. Please turn off adblock and consider clicking an ad if you do see one. I know some readers say they don’t see ads even if they turn off adblock (Perhaps the ads are not applicable to every country). I honestly make pennies unless you guys click (then I make dollars lol).

Here is Chapter 166
