Ikimasshoi needs writers

Forgot to post this up. Ikimasshoi needs writers. Click here to view the details on how you can add your creativity and knowledge to extend the already impressive writing crew of one of the most popular Jpop news site today. The link to the signup form seems to be down, but I think it will be restored soon.

But then again, I think most people who read this blog probably read Ikimasshoi anyways. ^_^

Here, I just want to express humbly, why I did not respond to Ikimasshoi's public requestto join the writer's crew.

Firstly, all the other writers seemed to be exceptionally great, and swift to report. I'm not saying that I am too good for Ikimasshoi. Rather, I'm just relatively new to the writing world, and I am half a step too slow at times. Like the Morning Musume 8th Gen intake news. If you are interested to know, I've been dragged by my fiance today to do some Christmas shopping, and I spent the entire day doing it. God, we've been walking so much that I barely have feeling on both my feet now. :)

Juggling between my work, family, fiance and weblog is hectic enough, and I wish not to jeopardize Ikimasshoi's reputation by being the slow poke among the rest. Plus, all I write about are only analysis after analysis (which I hope have entertained one or two readers of this blog) and mostly concentrate on Hello! Project only. So I'm not sure that it is the kind of material that Ikimasshoi writing crew needs. Anyways, I recognised some of the guys who responded and joined up. They are all good writers and I'm sure Ikimasshoi will do just fine. Please give your best support to Ikimasshoi.

One day, I may regret of not responding to the call, but meanwhile, I think I'll just keep doing my stuff. And in time, if Ikimasshoi makes another call again, I will join up. (If they accept me, of course ^_^)

Until then... kore kara mo, dozo yoroshiku onegai shimasu~~!

Apparently, it was an invitation-only call. I feel so embarassed...
I have moved this post from 10th Dec to 3rd Dec... :P

Not unlike the MM auditions I think they've already decided on this already.

How did you get your blog to link up with Ikimasshoi? You can answer me at Many thanks and happy holidays.

@Craig: Ah... really? i didn't know that... now i feel so embarrassed. :P

@radicalpatriot: please check your email...

Your blog is excellent and you should be on that Ikimasshoi team. I was asked to write, and I have started doing so, but already I've been spanked for writing something they didn't like. Now I can't even post. So much for my contributions.

Mick a.k.a. jinryuichi said...

Sorry to hear about that :(

Ok... I'll be moving this post down to the archives. After that, I am going to hide my face under my futon... ^_^

Ikimasshoi has shut down until Jan. 2 and the site is purging everything it doesn't like, including excellent analysis on The Tribune. It appears you were right about not contributing; I consider your blog among the best in this genre, and now I will likely rely on your input and that of American Wota and others now that Ikimasshoi is booting many of the writers it invited. Keep up the good work and I wish you and your family well.

Thanks for those kind words and wishes again. I wish you and your family well too. ^_^

And sorry to hear what's going on in Ikimasshoi. I'm think the webmaster is just doing what he needs to do, in order to maintain Ikimasshoi's ideals. But I hope your articles are intact.
