Giving away a few Japan-related domain names

I have a few domain names that I’d like to give (yes, free) to anyone who will do good with them. Going forward it will be important for me to focus my time and resources on the areas where I am already providing value (and can provide future value). And I plan to cut everything […]

Nipponster Toolbar gets a makeover

It’s been awhile. Being away from the action is never fun and I am glad to have found some inspiration and time to make some updates and post them. I am always lurking and seeing things here and there though. So much is going on lately on the J-web and I am anxious to talk […]

Back from the Mountain top…

Tadaima! I am “back from the mountaintop.” November was a great month and I was able to take time to do some deep reflection on my life and where I want to go from here. Some of that I might be sharing later on here on the blog, especially anything that relates to DailyJ, the […]

Gone to the mountain (see you in December)

🙁 Life is keeping me from blogging… In part that is a good thing because actually, despite how much I hype it, the J-web isn’t everything (did I just admit that? 😮 ). We humans need balance and that is what this post is about. I have a life outside of blogging that is also […]

Rikai Widgets on the Nipponster Japan Toolbar

Working on too many things… Thankfully I made time for things that matter too. I have caught up with my email (inbox zero!) and replied to all comments (hopefully). I also added some goodies to the Nipponster Japan Toolbar for you. They are from Rikai’s “syndicate me” page. By putting them on the Japan Toolbar […]

Nerd debate

I was replying to comments and clearing my inbox today and I noticed fellow J-web buddy Nick wrote up a little post about his top 10 most used computer programs. I have been trying to coax him over from the evil microsoft empire for a little while now so it was good to see some […]

playing catchup, japanblogger.net, and some widgets from Rikai

I’m still behind shedule with email and commenting, but slowly making progress. I put up a link to JapanBlogger.net as a top link on dailyJ.  Jblogger is great and it seems to complement the other top links, plus I told Billy I would put it there if he relaunched the site. I am working on […]

Quick: JapanBlogger; Nipponster; JapanLabs; JapanSoc; & playing catch-up

Not much time to post today, so just a quick one. 1) JapanBlogger.net is back up! Yay! 2) I changed the text on the nipponster homepage to read “Japan-specific search.” 3) JapanLabs. Thanks Nick for mentioning it. I will be talking more about some ideas I have for it soon. But to give a preview, […]

J-Donuts for everyone – An exclusive interview with “C” from Jdonuts.com

Hi all. I hope you have a sweet-tooth because today we will be chowing down on some creamy, tasty, sprinkle-licious Jdonuts! Oops. 😳 I might have already started… We’re here with “C” (for “Contamination”) from j-donuts.com, a J-blogger with a funny bone and a lot of heart. A friend of Jamaipanese, you know he must […]

Choices, Apologies, and why I look up to J-Donuts

Tomorrow I post the last delayed interview (interview gathered from before I fell off the face of the J-blogosphere for four months, earlier this year). So here is yet another apology and attempt to make peace with a Japan-blogger whom I have wronged. Sorry J-donuts. I wish I was better at this whole interview-conducting/blogging thing. That’s one thing I […]

One small step for JapanSoc…

One small step for JapanSoc, one giant leap for the J-web! JapanSoc, the Japan-related web’s social bookmarking website/ community watercooler, was just featured on JapanProbe.com From its start DailyJ has been a huge fan and support of the site because of its ability to bring the Japan-related web into a tight-knit community. I have said […]

Late night web tinkering…

(nerd post) I wrote this after staying up way too late (something I very rarely do), so it’s not Shakespeare. I exported the files from the old Official Nipponster Blog (blogger) to a new wordpress I am working on. The new wordpress installation is for a new Nipponster Laboratory. This one will give me a […]
