New Year, Same Old Blog (sort of)… A Quick Update

This is the first post of 2019, so I will start by saying Happy New Year/ あけましておめでとうございます, or あけおめ for short!

You might have noticed that the blog is looking slightly different. I have migrated the blog from WordPress to my own self-hosted site. I’m in the process of doing exciting things like fixing broken links which will take a little while but I think the end result will be worth it.

In related news, I have written my first ever guest post over at Unseen Japan! My article is about the history of colours in the Japanese language. I’ve done my best to put in some colour related words and phrases which will be useful for Japanese learners at any level. There will be an article for Unseen Japan making its debut on this blog later this month, so stay tuned.

I hope everyone’s 新年の抱負 (しんねんのほうふ/shinnen no houfu = New Year’s Resolutions) are going strong!

    1. The transition wasn’t too difficult (I followed a bunch of tutorials) but as I have quite a lot of posts on the site, there are lots of little things that I am finding and fixing (mostly older posts from when I was brand new to blogging which needed a refresh anyway!). You can pay your hosting provider to manage the transition should you want an easier option too.

      Self-hosted WordPress offers much more freedom over how your site looks and feels – if you are willing to pay for hosting I’d say go for it 🙂

    just wanted to let you know in case you already didn’t know; I don’t think I’ve heard anyone just man for stuff like manjikan. i feel like they always say ichiman? there’s man ga ichi but that’s a saying.
