About

This site run by Ann Gulbrandsen. I decided to put it up to combine two interests of mine, Japanese and web business.

I have been learning Japanese in my spare time for five years and during that time I’ve picked up and tried a lot of different tools and resources. The ones I liked the most will be documented on this site which at the moment is a work in progress. I had a first version up in the autumn of 2012, then I got distracted by other projects so I didn’t get much content added. My plan for 2013 is to focus on testing iOS Apps for learning Japanese. There is a lot of them out there and it’s kind of hard to know which ones are useful so I think this could be useful.

The web business interest takes two forms with this site. Most obvious to a visitor will be that I’m trying out different affiliate programs i.e. some of the links on the site will give me a kick-back if you end up buying something from the linked site. I will be open about which links that are affiliate links and I will only link to services I’ve used and liked. The second thing I’m doing is simply to try out different SEO strategies to learn what works (and doesn’t work) in google and other search engines.

Some formality required from Amazon:
