Personal Thoughts

Returning from the Abyss

It’s been a bit less than two years since my last blog post – yikes! I think that I just got really worked up trying to write in order to impress my audience. Actually, I just wanted to have fun writing about things that I liked but I got caught up in trying to make a “proper” blog. That focus ended up being the demise of this page, a page in which I hoped to create memories of my time in Japan.

This time is going to be different (I hope!). I am not going to worry about SEO or marketing and other stuff blogs about blogging right about. I am just going to focus on writing and enjoying that. That being said, I am going to try to write with some kind of schedule so this little fun project of mine does not get abandoned for a third time…

Right now I envision a lot of sharing events/places that I go to and different media, especially Japanese, that I am consuming. I might also start trying my hand at translating portions of Japanese novels or articles that I am reading – the idea of it has become a bit of an obsession of mine so I want to give it a shot.

To be honest, anything I want to write I will so let’s see where ‘Trekking Tokyo’ takes me this time around!

    I try to just honestly put my hands on the keyboard and just go – write what you feel, and write about what you love and it will come easy. Not to say anyone actually reads my blog, so my advice could be terrible, but I do enjoy looking back on it to remember what things were like and how I was like at a certain point in time. 🙂 Nice to see a post from you again!

      It was nice to post again! I haven’t been doing anything that inspires me to write but I thought I’d give it a try again.

      Also loving watching you rock China this time around!! 🙂
