January Roundup and Poll Results!

Hope everyone’s January has been a fun one. For me its personally been an extreme challenge for school and keeping my Japanese up. With the newest member of our writing team however, we’ve been able to bring a post to you every Tuesday and Friday. I’m not sure if we’ll run out of topics and slow down, but for now, we’re sticking to it. As for Tadoku, I’ve actually been reading a good bit (for me at least) however, I’m so silly, I haven’t posted any of my numbers since the 15th! So I’ll be posting them and updating my tadoku widget on the side bar. Hope everyone else has had fun with their Tadoku this time around. I personally got through a handful of children’s books, novels, and manga, as well as some JP subs, gaming time, and product box reading!

Thank you for those who participated in the Poll. Here are the top final results!

23 % wanted more Technique Reviews

20% wanted more information on How I Study

10% wanted more Extensive Reading Resources Posts

After these top three there was a three way tie for the following types of posts: Juggling children and learning, Reviews on Japanese products, “Ask a Japanese Person” blog, and Blogs written in Japanese.

Comment below on what types of Techniques that you would like reviewed, or talked about. There will be more posts concerning what I use to study as well, such as the program LwT, Readthekanji, and task helps like Epic Win.

In case you missed it, here were our posts for the month!

2012 First Quarter New Years Resolutions : Dropbox Review! : Images to PDF using MSWord2010 : January’s Kanji Game : How to create mobile libraries : Telling Major Eastern Languages Apart : How we study; Pandachan, Mikoto

We also added two new pages to the blog!

Guides: This page will become a quick to find step by step, images included, mass of information on how to do things that will help you in your adventures in Japanese. Soon we’ll have things like, how to sign up for Yahoo.co.jp mailing addresses, how to sign up for sites like Nico Nico Douga, and much more!

TOC Multilingual and Monolingual: While the Monolingual site will probably not take off for quite some time, I wanted to begin preparing it. Eventually I will be posting articles and guides for those transitioning into the monolingual steps of learning Japanese.

Look forward to these upcoming posts:
