Here are some of my responses to the data:

We have a Facebook and a Twitter (the latter of which has become quite active lately!), so please give us a follow. We often share other website’s articles and resources on our social media that you won’t find on this main page!

Looking at question 2, I realize that the answers were a little too broad and might have overlapped or confused some. But still, it appears that the resource posts (which I consider to be the Expat and Gay in Japan-labeled posts and our glossary) to be pretty popular.

Before this survey, I wasn’t sure how popular our “daily life” style posts were, but it appears that you’re enjoying them! I feel relieved. I promise that we’ll start writing more about ourselves soon.

In addition, thanks again for the thoughtful and kind comments. We’ll keep them in mind as we continue writing.

P.S. Happy Spirit Day!
