To my dear readers,
Firstly, I would like to thank Corine and Misty for their donations to me. Corine has donated to me a few times previously. Thank you so much for choosing to support me! I am truly grateful you think I am worthy of your money. As for Misty, I love your name. It reminds me of a character from Pokemon.
Secondly, we’re going to be on the boat for awhile. My mom keeps complaining how I’m taking forever (she reads my translations using google translate on a tablet *and all your comments too!* LOL)
Sorry it’s taking so long, guys. I am honestly trying my best. If you can’t handle it, read the raws –> here
Take a look. Chapter 130 has 6000 characters. Chapter 131 has 8000, and chapter 132 has 6000. That’s a total of 20000 Chinese characters! 130 is when Dongfang Bai promised Le Yao Yao he will keep her identity a secret. Please remember that the Dowager Empress’s birthday was yesterday. The vomiting happened last night. The novel moves like a snail and it’s because the author is so detailed and keeps describing everything a hundred times. I already took out of a lot of the explanation but there’s also a lot of dialogue and things happening in between that I must translate because one thing leads to another… *As of right now, we’re around 132-133 of the raws
Since the length of the chapter varies so much, I honestly can’t tell you when you guys will get the chapter that you want because I don’t even know how long it will take me to get there. I can’t just jump right into whatever scene you guys want to read because you will be confused.
Here is the post that the bots can steal today. What is a perfect man? (Note: This is my own opinion so please do not take it personally).
Also, next time I’ll probably tell you guys about the costs of self hosting. I have been asked multiple times by different readers why I do not post or allow others to post my translations on Wattpad. The reason is because I HAVE TO PAY FOR MY SITE HERE, GUYS! IT’S NOT FREE. It’s free for you but I have to pay. Why would I let other people take ad revenue or views from me when I am here making pennies myself!? I’ll be frank. Today, it says I have made about $0.32 and I already have over 3000 views as of right now. If some of you guys click an ad, I might get a few dollars by the end of the day.
And you may say, “Well, no one told you to pay to host, you could just host your stuff for free on wordpress.” YES BUT I GOT BANNED FROM WORDADS BECAUSE I CHOSE TO TRANSLATE THIS STORY. My site liveandlearn88.com is just there but I make $0 from it ever since wordads’ robots decided my content is too mature.
I wanted ads and in order to do so, I have to self host. Even though hosting isn’t cheap, I do eventually make it back from the donations/pledges and ad revenue. But I just want to let you know that creating a site is like starting a business (NOTE: The cost is definitely much lower than starting a physical business). Please understand I really only earn when you guys donate or pledges (which is optional). Since my product (the translations) is free, it’s more like charity than a business. Nonetheless, I’m grateful for all of you who support me in any way you can. <3 The chapter will be released later.
Here is Chapter 175
