Geordie Japan’s 2012 Year In Review



Wow what a year, since launching on the 13th of March 2012 Geordie Japan has exploded far beyond what was ever expected of it. 2013 is set to be an exciting year for us but before we look to the future we should look back at the year that was 2012. In this review article you will find some interesting stats about the site and handily, for those of you who are new to the site, links to every article across the past year.

10,000 Visitors & A Site Update


A little over a month ago we posted an article in honour of 7000 visitors to Geordie Japan, a little over a month later and we are proud to announce that last week we hit 10,000 visitors! We’re truly overwhelmed by how the site has taken off and we’d like to say thank you to every single one of you that visits the site for supporting us. It’s so great to see that there is such a community interested is so many different aspects of Japanese culture. We are working on some behind the scenes things in an attempt to make the site as user friendly as we can, working within wordpress can be a little slow, but they are coming!


A little bit of a site update for you now, Geordie Japan is run by a very small team that for the most part consists of one person. So occasionally real life (i.e. work) gets in the way and that’s why the site has been a little quiet over the last week or so. But stay tuned, this week will see some articles posted later on.


While we’ve got you here, have you ever wondered if you could contribute to the site? Well there are several ways that you can

  1. Fancy writing for us? Even just a one off? Then drop us an email and we will see what we can work out
  2. Noticed a Japanese event that’s not up on the site? Then tweet us and let us know!
  3. Like the site? (We hope you do) Then please tell your friends about us and follow us on twitter
  4. Think you can help the site in any other way? Email us!


So thanks again to you all, we’ll leave you with this beautiful giant cookie adorned with the Japanese flag that arrived to commemorate 10,000 visitors!
