Celebrate: 300 Posts!

Wow! Check out that number.** I’ve gotta say, I’m kind of proud of myself. When I started blogging to support my fledgling itinerary business, I never really imagined that this site would “take off” so to speak and reach so many of you. Or that so many of you were excited about a country with which I have fallen deeply in love. I feel so privileged to both live here and be able to share some of the amazing aspects and true discoveries of this place.

But apparently, you all just want to fish for your supper. πŸ™‚

Yup, when I glance at my blog stats, it seems that my post on Zauo – the restaurant in Tokyo where you can catch your own meal – is consistently ranked number one. Or it was, until early this week, when my post on unagi overtook it. It appears you also like to know what my five favorite autumn foods are … even in the spring. πŸ™‚ And one of the most popular outside links on my blog sends you straight to the website for Gogyo, a great ramen restaurant in Kyoto. I suppose it’s safe to assume you like food.

So who are you, dear readers? Well, according to my stats page, you mostly hail from Japan, though followed closely by readers in the US, Australia, Singapore and the UK (to round out the top 5). Those of you who surfed in from Mongolia, the Isle of Jersey and Aruba, I am insanely curious as to who you are!

Over 300 of you have been following me, some for almost all of these 300 posts. I’d like to think that means you enjoyΒ what you read but as I’m in the business of helping people get the most out of their Japan experience – be it armchair or boots on the ground – tell me more! Anything in particular you’d like to see on the blog? Do you have one category you favor over another? Recommendations for places to check out? Though it may take some time to incorporate suggestions into the blog, I’m all ears. I’d love to hear from you!

**For those of you actually counting, today is Post 299. But as Courtney’s Washoku Wednesday falls on what would be the 300th posting day, I decided to put it up a day early.

    • I rarely remember to check the stats (beyond daily views) but I found it pretty cool myself to see where people where clicking in from. Hopefully, I’ve got another 300 posts in me! πŸ™‚

  1. Wow!! 300 is amazing! Great job and congrats! ^___^
    How long have you been blogging?

    My blog has been around since 2011, but I only have roughly 150 posts. Guess I need another 3 years to catch up with you. πŸ˜‰
    I just don’t have enough time to blog as much as I want, so I really admire the job you did with your blog. Keep it up! πŸ˜€

    • Thanks zoomingjapan! I love checking out your blog. I’ve been blogging for almost exactly two years but I manage to post three times a week, that’s why there are so many entries. Not sure how long I’ll keep that up – I might go down to twice a week if I get to busy or (heaven forbid) run out of things to say!
