Should you Start your Own Japanese Blog? — 6 Comments

  1. If people are really dying to blog, maybe they could write journals on Lang-8.com instead.
    Make a “blog” in Japanese, giving general language-learning tips (that the Japanese natives can apply to their foreign language studies), mark your progress, talk about words/phrases/kanji you think are interesting/frustrating… all while having to actually write it in Japanese, and having a flock of native speakers correcting your errors. You can slip in occasional tales about your life as a non-Japanese person, as well, to keep your new fans extra interested (being an American (or whatever) is so exotic and amazing XD).

  2. I’m while continuing my posting on my Japanese blog (silentboxer.blogspot.com). I was taking this into very much consideration and I thank you for your insight on it and for your honesty to tell how it has affected you. :)

  3. I support the above comment about writing a blog on Lang-8.com .
    That is a good way to practice writing Japanese while getting corrections from natives and also making Japanese friends you can later Skype with or meet when you’re in Japan. (I’ve done both)

    But of course this is not blogging “about Japanese” but “in Japanese” so it very much counts as study time.

  4. Well, in my case, I was thinking of registering my progress in my native language, but decided against it. I’m starting my journey now (2 months, indeed), but I’m not an English native. So, in order to improve my Japanese and, at the same time, my English, I’ll be writing it in English.

    Despite being almost native-level at speaking and being really fast at reading (I read 114 books last year, all of them in English), I’ve never practiced too much my writing, so I have many doubts and I kind of “stutter” when writing.

    SO, my Japanese journey blog is going to be helpful for my English final objective: achieve native-level proficiency in all four competences.
