Welcome to October!

So, here we are, a new month, a new day to spark up your Japanese learning. While Delenir has been rocking it with his intense studying, Panda just listening to JP music while kicking some engineering butt, and me focusing on some domination of vocabulary mcds focused around kanji;  we have all noticed that the blog’s 3 year anniversary is coming up.

I’ll admit that the first year was a struggle to get noticed, year two picked up a lot of steam. However this past almost year has been excellent. With new writers and lots of traffic, we’ve decided to hold a Give-a-way for all your dedicated reading!

Thank you very much for following along with us as we stumble along the wonderful path to fluency.

We can’t decide quite what we would like to do for prizes (except that they will be Japanese or Japanese orientated) so please comment below on things you’d maybe like to see.

On the 15th of October, we will open a page for commenting to enter yourself in the contest, only one entry per person will be assigned a random number, and random number generator will then choose the string, which the top three will get prizes. The top prize will be worth more than the following two of course, and the prizes will be shipped out as soon as the winners are chosen. The eligibility to enter will be closing the 15th of November.

So recap.

Comment between October 15th-November 15th on the Give-a-way page (which will be on the top menu during its open period) in order to become eligible for the 3rd year anniversary Give-a-way!

Good Luck!

 

(ps, we were unable to get together to plan out the month just yet, so blog posts will be flying in all over the place!)

      Yup, and if I remember correctly (which my memory is prone to not work) Deliner did touch on it some in one of his earlier posts. I personally haven’t gotten into it yet, My days for experimenting have been a lot less these days, but I plan to start back up once my semester is over.
