Someone has informed me that I should integrate my old blog with this new one, and then I got an idea.
I’m going to start on a series called “Flashbacks.” Basically, what I intend to do is pick and choose the highlights from my old blog and bring them over here. What I’ll also do is add on new information I gained in the following years of living in Japan, and also maybe throw in a few journal entries that I wrote from that timeframe.
Why am I going to bring the old to the new? Well, for many reasons, but for one the old blog is getting a bunch of spam bots and spam comments every other week, and I don’t want to keep going back and filtering through them. At the same time, there are a lot of posts that are near and dear to my heart that I don’t want to see erased.
And then, I want to find a way to make money off of blogging in the (far and distant) future, or freelancing or both. In order to do that, I would need to buy this site/domain, and I really only want to focus on one and not multiple accounts. I would ideally prefer it if traffic flowed to this one so that people would come here to help me make ad revenue (once again, in the future, not currently).
I think it’ll be something like “Flashback Friday,” which is probably already a thing somewhere but hopefully it’s not trademarked or whatever yet. Anyway, closely follwing this post I’m going to do my first flashback, so I hope you all enjoy!
