    We do what we do as missionaries supported by people like you.

    We also prefer to give away as much content as we can, and not cloud that issue with a lot of public requests. That said, we do have specific needs that are met by people who believe the work we do has value.

    If you'd like a short list of immediate financial needs, you can find it HERE.

    Thanks!

Blogging in Japan…

I ran across this interesting article in the Washington Post this morning – fascinating both for the volume of blogging that goes on in Japan (English speakers outnumber Japanese speakers 5-1, but nearly 50% of the worlds blogs are Japanese) as well as their more restrained approach. For example, it mentions:

“…the remarkably harmonious blog that Junko Kenetsuna has been writing five times a week for the past three years about her midday meal.

With understated precision, she calls her blog “I had my lunch.”

Wow. I had my lunch.

That’s only slightly more mundane that stuff I think. I wonder if anyone’s blogging Stuff I Think While I Have My Lunch. That would be a meme to remember.

  1. To keep up with the Japanese, perhaps you should change the name of your blog to “Stuff I think about eating”.

  2. Thanks for the pointer… Blogging as “a kind of karaoke for shy people” (p.3)! The analogy made me laugh — and squirm.
