Blogging it up at for 9 years now is really getting along in the blogging years. It feels good to have a personal blog that has evolved as I’ve evolved and in many ways have stayed the same. I continue to struggle a little with the time to commit to my blog and reminisce on the days when I had oodles of time to delicately craft posts. With work and school finding enough time is increasingly difficult but when I do find the time to for an anime review, or to visit a sake event here in Jamaica or completely geek out at a anime exhibition in Kingston it makes the feeling of enjoyment so much more potent.

Jamaipanese the Podcaster

The last year has seen my achieve one of the major goals I had and that is restarting my podcast. My podcast originally named “All Hail Japan” has returned as jaPODCAST. With only one episode recorded so far I hope to improve with each episode and hopefully the listeners will have as much fun listening to it as I do creating it.

Jamaipanese the public speaker

Two highlights of the past year that wouldn’t have been possible without my blog is when I did a presentation at Anime Nation 2014 and recently when I met with some innercity kids from the St Patrick’s Pre-Youth Club. I am hoping to do more public speaking and presentations in the coming months related to and also some personal projects I am working on.


Overall it was a good year but there are still some goals that had to be postponed that I will be blogging about in due time. Thank you to all who continue to read and support my blog. Stay in touch via Twitter @Jamaipanese, Instagram @Jamaipanese or the Facebook page.
