blog indefinite hiatus

If you’ve been coming here a while (congratulations for being one of the very few?), you’ve observed the scarcity of recent posts – either I’ve run out of insights, or realized that what I thought were insights really weren’t, or whatever – but mostly every time I think about writing a proper blog post I think of the hour or two hours it’ll take and consider the relative value of spending that time reading Japanese or watching a Japanese movie or doing some Skritter or whatever and the actual doing always wins out over the talking about it. Readers have been extremely few anyway (often less than 10 even for new posts), so I’m sure whatever those of you who wander in here are looking for is taken care of elsewhere.

Perhaps once I’ve mastered this language learning lark I’ll explain here how I did it but it looks like that’ll take some considerable while.

The resources that are here including the blog archive will of course stay online; I won’t just let it fizzle until it really does stop getting traffic entirely.

I’ll still post the occasional new word or expression or brief thought over on my tumblr, so follow that if you’d like.

I do sincerely thank all of you for your kindness in reading for these nearly four years now. All the best with your own mysterious journey and may the cookie crumbs never lead you astray.

    • Thanks 🙂 there’ll still be action on the tumblr, so there’s that anyway. Will resume here once I have this completely figured out 😉

  1. Thank you very much for for your web site. You have been extremely helpful in my quest for Japanese fluency. Please continue to keep this web site up. Monodic postings were very helpful but unfortunately was a dead end path for me. After viewing the polyglot video, I think extensive reading is a path for me. Thanks again! Wayne

    • Very happy to hear that people have gotten some benefit from my modest contributions. Will be back at some point!

      Within the next couple weeks or so I do want to update my links section so there should be some more useful resources available from there.

  2. I think I reached the same point as you! It just doesn’t sem worth maintaining when there’s still so much Chinese/Japanese to learnand enjoy.

    Good luck!
