Seriously this post is just about me.
What have I been up to? First… Work. I’ve realize it’s a lot enjoyable than my previous one. Heck. I am liking the way I am growing in the company right. But enough of that. I don’t want to chit chat with anything related to work right now. But just so you know, I’ve been doing good.
I am managing a personal Nintendo 3DS blog which is only focused with Japanese 3DS games. Now you might say, “Why?” or “I thought you don’t understand Japanese?” The truth is, yeah, there is always a language barrier. That’s why I’ve set a number of alerts that will alert me every time a Japanese-relates Nintendo 3DS news, be it about their games, or Japanese companies in particular, get published in the Internet.
It is always not easy. This means that the majority of English-speaking gamers will not bother to leave my blog before 5 seconds are up. Nevertheless, it was a niche to explore. Who knows, I might go to Japan one day, or learn their elusive language. When that time comes, I guess I will never worry about where look for content anymore.
Another thing, I’ve set up a Japanese video game blog. It was a blog intended to just speak for people who are into Japanese games. And guess what happened… It was deleted. It was guilt on my part. But at least I’ve learned my lessons. One, never mess with the TOS agreement. Two, I found out I can write well.
When I say writing well, I don’t mean writing in a scholarly way. But rather in a way that will make people understand or at least make them nod in agreement.
What I’ve been thinking all this time is that, why am I getting more comments and followers in WordPress with less traffic, while in my Bloggger blog, I have more traffic with little conversations. I know what’s lacking there. But I won’t say.
Another thing I’ve learned is that I now have hands-on case studies to site as examples for future references in this blog. Why you ask?
Perhaps, I’ll start posting the things that I’ve been reading about more – Social Media, We 2.0, Google, Facebook, Nintendo, the Hunger Games, and so on. Simply put, the Geeky stuff. I hope there will be results though.
