Creating a WordPress.com site to preserve the content in TKE blog

1 Jun

I finally succeeded in migrating the content from tokyokawaiietc.com to tokyokawaiietc.wordpress.com with great help from WordPress.com support team. However, as you may have noticed, the links placed in each page (you know the pages such as Kawaii Shop, Learn Japanese, and etc.) jump to the equivalent posts on TKE blog. This means they will be useless once TKE blog is closed down. Thus, I’ve got to do this manually one by one, identifying the name of the post in TKE and this WP blog and replacing them in the HTML…well I’ve started to do that little by little, but I guess it’ll take some time. :p

I’ll do the least that may be required to this website, as the first and foremost the main purpose of this place is preservation of TKE blog. I could make the site look better, you may say that, but that is not so important here any longer. Hope you understand what I mean.

When I complete the manual edit with the links, I will finally go ahead to close down the TKE blog.
I know some of the contents are getting too out of date and not a very good reading any more, but it’s a relief that I can keep what I’d made (and of course Apple too) during 2008-2013 in a similar form to the original, and for free.

I don’t think I will start another blog now. I guess I enjoy the process of input rather than output now, since I’ve output sufficient information via TKE blog. If I get enough input, I may feel like writing another blog in the near future, but I just don’t know that till then.

I have no intention to update this blog here, but this is sort of a test post so that I can see how things work…

Thanks and regards,
Kirin

      Oh, hey Magali!!
      Thank you for your comment. So this is how things work here…
      But I’m not going to update it. In case you need to contact me, feel free to do by email. Hope you are doing well. ^_^

    Yay! Happy to see the blog again.

      Hey Sedonia,
      It’s nice to see you again. 🙂 Thank you for your comment.
      It’s still a bit painful that I eventually will have to close down the TKE blog, the original one, even if I succeeded in complete migration…but I’ll cope with that. Life is always changing…

      Hope you are doing well. I saw TV news with regard to the tornado in the U.S which I think is far from where you live, but that was so scary! I’m really sorry for the victims as there’s nothing to do about such a thing….

    I’m happy to see you are preserving the site! It’s a little sad when old websites just disappear. Thanks for all of your TKE posts over the years!

    This must be a lot of hardwork! Thank you so much for preserving this for us!

      Thank you for your comment.
      After all I feel it’s too sad to delete all the stuff I’d created in the past several years. So this is a good way to preserve TKE. 🙂

    Hi Kirin. It’s nice to see TKE survive like this 🙂 Thanks for all the effort and thank you for all the nice posts over all those years.

      Hi Walter,
      Thank you for coming over to this place to say something, which is very nice of you! I hope you’re doing well. 😉

    Glad TKE still alive. Thanks for keeping it Admins

    I’m so sad about this… I wish TKE never die, it was a great blog really worth reading…
    I’m an absolute fan of J-culture as you know, and I’m in love with Japan, so this is really terrible 😦

    Mañana te responderé al email que me enviaste.

    Un saludo Kirinsan.
    Matane!!

      Hope we can still exchange emails.
      I will start up a new blog when I feel that I’m ready to output. I’ve been kind of tired of outputting information in the past 4-5 years, and now is the time for me to input information or whatever. :p

      Cheers,
      Kirin

    Kirin-san!

    This happened, and that happened, and I was away from TKE for so long, but still think of you and Apple fondly.

    Hope you’re both living a happy life – Miss you!

      Thank you for your comment.
      I just keep this website as a record and usually I don’t even come back here but I found your comment so I did today. ^_^

      I met Apple in April when I visited Singapore and in July when she visited Tokyo.

      Take care!
      Kirin

    I used to read your blog a few years ago, now that this summer i’m preparing for my 2 week japanese language course in tokyo i started rereading everything again. Thanks for keeping the blog archive online, I still enjoy reading it. Thank you very much!!
