What and who is blogging for?

Blogging is not working anymore, or at least, it doesn't work as well as it used to. But, in Japan, there are still lots of people who start to try blogging.

It is clear that blogging is not as easy as before. Some top bloggers have already given up. They are shifting to other platforms such as YouTube.



I also am blogging less than before, in this blog 'Blogger' too. Recently I write on Medium more, both in English and Japanese. Then, I am wondering, should I stop blogging completely or keep doing anyway?

I read an article on Medium today. She said that blogging is a good way to expand your audience as a writer. She meant that you can keep blogging to connect your reader and to reach potential readers. Social media works in the same way, she wrote.

So, I think I still continue blogging. I blog as my journal and write something more than blogs on Medium, perhaps.

Why did I start writing on "Medium"

A couple of months ago, I started writing in English which is my second language. I posted some blog articles on this platform "Blogger" which is one of my favourite blogging services. But I started writing on "Medium" two weeks ago.

Now I just want to write down why I started writing there, not here, and also where I am going to write in the future.

What does "Kawaii" mean? Why do people love "Kawaii" things?

"Kawaii" is one of the most commonly used Japanese words. When you hear conversations of Japanese people, you must spot it more than once.

"Kawaii" originally means "cute", supposed to be used when they are describing something small or little, such as a baby, a small animal, etc. However, it is more than that now.

Where I came from and Where I am going

I was a child who spent lots of time daydreaming. My parent’s house was built in the middle of rice fields. It was a little far from the main town in a rural area in Japan. Because I didn’t have any friends living nearby, I was always alone in the garden where the strong aroma of gardenias made me feel dizzy.
