Yes, I have jumped on the bandwagon and started a blog of my own. It's been up for less than a week, and it's still a work in progress (just wait till I figure out how to program stylesheets!)

Anyway, it's roughly half Japanese and half English in content, and it contains (will contain) my thoughts on various topics, etc.

So if you have a couple of minutes on your hands, stop by, and say hi!🙂

Yeah, like how NOT to do a blog! :p

Thanks for the encouragement, though! Your blog is excellent stuff, too, Jonathon!

Hey Mikawa Ossan!

It's nice to see that you have a blog, too. I can only read English part of it, but I will check it out.

That's right, they're dorayaki!

Dorayaki are a kind of Japanese confectionary that are basically two sweet pancakes sandwiched together with red bean paste inside.

I guess they don't translate very well cross-culturally...

Well ... I did think they were pancakes. Apparently not TOO far off the mark.

Hi, Mikawa-san
Ohisashiburi desu~.

Yes, your dorayaki looks so good as well as your blog contents.
I'll be checking it as often as possible, so be aware of my intrusion! :devilish:

Hello, Cue!

Feel free to stop by at any time! Don't be afraid to leave a comment, either!

I'll be trying to improve the blog with time, so it is very much rough now. I hope to be changing that soon...

Instead of making a new thread, I thought I would update this one with my new blog's address.

http://mikawa.bloggles.info/

My old blog died a painful death when Blogger got bought out by Google. Hopefully it won't happen again.

Don't expect too much, but if you like pain, come and read my thoughts!

haha...um...hi!

Thanks to member J44xm, I finally got the old blog up and running again. This puts me in a spot, as I now have two blogs....

Well, I guess the old one, (www.mikawa-ossan.blogspot.com) will be my main blog and the new one (www.mikawa.bloggles.info) will be my sub-blog so to speak, whatever that means.

Sorry to be so confusing here!

i'm not too interested in the content.
Thanks for taking a look!

I understand how you feel. I've looked at many many blogs, too, and I only know of a very very few that I find interesting.

That picture at the very top, by the way was taken in the winter of 98/99 with a panoramic camera. It's the view of Minneapolis as seen from the northern coast of the Mississippi River. It's probably my favorite picture taken of Minneapolis that I ever took.

The way to leave a comment is to click on the "comments" text underneath the blog entry. Then a window should pop up allowing you to write your comment.

You're right, though.....it is kind of confusing. Maybe I should change that....

Just writing to let anyone know who's interested that I have changed the default language of the blog from Japanese to English. This should help in finding the comments if you wish to add one.

Thanks!

Just an update that I have included a link at the top of the page that will translate the page to English. Feel free to comment and make fun of the English that comes up!
