200 months ago the number one movie was about a weatherman who found himself living the same day over and over.
200 weeks ago I moved from the wasteland of Saitama Japan to the greener pastures of Yokohama,,,the grass is always greener in someone else’s yard isn’t it? lol
200 days ago I wore my first yukata.
200 hours ago (approx) I sat down and brainstormed my blogging and writing with two of the greatest marketing minds in the universe (in my universe anyway) and received some sage advice along the lines of not compromising my integrity as a writer by walking the road of least resistance and good stuff like that. I walked away from the meeting with a head full of hot ideas and a heart full of motivation.
200 posts ago I was surfing around the web reading blogs and wondering if I could do it, too…And I decided, yes I could. I had things to say and I needed a place to say it, and I found that place, 200 posts ago, right here.
I don’t remember much more planning going into starting this blog than that.
Well, I just want to take a moment to thank my avid readers and commentors. Without you guys I probably would have given up a long time ago. As much as I love to write, I gotta be honest, if no one was reading it and telling me how much they enjoyed it or found it entertaining or even felt strongly enough about what I’ve written to write a long soliloquy trashing it, I would not have the motivation to keep it up.
So when I say I couldn’t have done this without you guys, I’m not speaking figuratively, I’m speaking literally.
Occasionally I get a comment from a reader that says something like “I’m a long time reader but I’ve never commented until now…” I wanna thank you guys, too. But, even if only to say, “Hi” give me a shout why don’t you?
In the days to come Loco in Yokohama will be enhanced a bit. Nothing fancy, just a few enhancements to make blog enjoyment easier for you and blog management easier for me. I will try to make this transition as painless as possible, but the change process usually isn’t such a pretty sight. It may not be seamless. The changes are underway as I write this and I hope everyone will be as thrilled about the final result as I will be.
To that end, I’m inviting my readers and commenters to give me suggestions as to how Loco in Yokohama could be improved. What would you like to see? What would you like to see changed? I value your ideas and feedback, and look forward to hearing / reading them.
Thank you in advance for your suggestions. And thanks for reading Loco in Yokohama. I promise to do my best to make the next 200 posts as great as I can. I will continue to be honest and straight forward with you and give you the straight dope from here in my little corner of this island.
And, I’ll try not to forget the funny. (-;
