Japanese blogs are good reading practice if you can find some interesting ones.
Most share some unique characteristics.
I don’t know who wrote the rules of Japanese blogging…
…but you have to use the “Enter” key a lot.
The writing tends to be kind of aimless as well.
I think celebrity blogs are probably the biggest in Japan.
If you’re an attractive celebrity who also happens to be an オタク geek like しょこたん, you’re bound to get a huge following of fantasizing geeks.
It’s like the ultimate fantasy.
Sometimes, I wish I was a hot, geeky celebrity. Then my blog would be popular.
But I don’t want geeky, fantasizing fans. Yuck! ＼(≧≦)／
Oh yeah, don’t forget to use lots of cute smileys.
Here’s another one:
( ^ーﾟ)bグッ! All right! (Pat myself on the back!)
There’s one more crucial aspect to writing a Japanese blog…
Frickin’ make you scroll forever to see what comes next!!!
It’s supposed to build suspense but it’s…
SO ANNOYING! ＼(*＞＜)／
I enjoy a number of Japanese blogs like うまのホネ.
For instance, one of her posts is about strategies for milking herself reserves for the baby so that she can drink alcohol.
That’s my kind of wife!
Another one I enjoy is by yet another hot, (kinda) geeky celebrity: 眞鍋かをり.
You can tell she’s geeky from the following excerpt:
That won’t make any sense unless you’ve read Slam Dunk, which I think is one of the first steps to becoming a geek.
Of course, I have read all 31 volumes. <(｀ー´)>
Those are supposed to be arms tucked smugly behind my head, in case you didn’t get it.
This next blog is so popular, they made a drama of it and a PSP game: 鬼嫁日記.
13 millions hits on the counter! (゜_゜;)
It’s very funny but has lots of scrolling. (;´ヘ｀) はぁ～
