Here’s a fun idea.
I’ve added this page to address any of your questions, comments, and suggestions. Basically, just add a comment with your thoughts and I’ll collect them here for others to read. I’ll also try to answer your questions as best as I can. I’m not looking for any topic in particular so your comment can be about anything but be nice!

Dear Mr. Kim,
Hello. I wanted to write you and let you know what an amazing service you are providing to people like me. My dream is to become a Japanese teacher one day. I discovered this about 2 years ago and I have been studying every day ever since (manga, animé, textbooks, “My Japanese Coach”, “ReadTheKanji.com” and your grammar guide.) Do you know that you are the FIRST person to ever give me a firm start to understanding wa and ga? I don’t even know who you are…..but thank you. Once I can make my dream come true (in about 5-10 years!), you will be part of why that was possible. I will be reading your blog every day. Thank you.

迷惑かけてごめんなさい～ (I hope that’s correct for “sorry to cause you trouble” and not “you caused me trouble”) ^^
Your guide has really, REALLY helped me so much. It’s still the very best aid I know of so far in studying Japanese by one’s own self. In fact, I might have given up on learning that language for a long while if I hadn’t found such a well-organized step-by-step guide to the grammar.

I am speechless as of how great your guide is. I have been learning Japanese since 2005 with a private teacher, who in my opinion is very skilled, but yet your guide contained many many little things I had always kind of “felt” in my Japanese thinking but could never truly reason about. Now thanks to your guide, I can. I am astonished how precisely you can word seemingly complex mechanisms inside the japanese language in so few and yet so perfectly informative sentences. I truly admire your knowledge. It is such a joy to read your guide …
Again, I cannot thank you enough.
Kind regards and best wishes from Frankfurt, Germany,

Hey, my name’s Aaron, I traverse the guidetojapanese.org website, forums, and stuff. This fall, I am studying abroad at a university in the Chiba area (神田外語大学 website: http://www.kandagaigo.ac.jp/kuis/). Just thought I should let you know that amongst the information they’ve sent me, they I noticed that they recommend your guide as a good resource. Congrats, you have universities promoting you! 🙂
