I have put some extra work into TsukuBlog lately. Here are some of the changes.
1. Added a photo album.
2. Added a section that shows the latest 5 links that have been added to the Tsukuba Link Collection
3. Added a section that shows all of the categories of the Tsukuba Link Collection
4. Posted a variety of new articles, such as…
- Quick Choose!
- Recycling Telephone Books
- New Laws about Transfering Money
- Sunday at Tokyo National Museum
- Yukari no Mori
I will also add categories to the blog articles as soon as “team blogs” are allowed to upgrade to Blogger Beta.
I’m not sure if I will be able to keep up this pace, but I’ll try to keep it interesting! (Also, I hope some of our other contributors will post every now and then.) One idea I have is to make a “Tsukuba Kanji Quiz” where we will post photos of signs that you can see around Tsukuba and ask the readers to guess how to read them. Does that sound fun? Are there any other kinds of articles that you want to see? Please let me know!
With your co-operation, I would like to make TsukuBlog a place where you can find fun, informative, and timely information about Tsukuba. My plan is for the articles to be posted continuously during the month and then have relevant ones archived on the Alien Times site and/or Tsukuba Wiki. (If anyone wants to volunteer to update Tsukuba Wiki with the content from Tsukublog once a month, please let me know — or just go ahead and start doing it.)

If you have an rss reader (usually built into your browser, or available as an add-on), you can subscribe to Tsukublog and be notified of new articles automatically.
I have started to collect links to Tsukuba- and Japan-related websites in a “del.icio.us” account for Alien Times.
If you have any suggestions of website links that should be added, please let me know. If you have a del.icio.us account, you can recommend links by tagging them with “for:alientimes”. If you don’t have an account, just send me the links and I will add them manually.
I am working on moving the links from the Alien Times site over to the new account.
If you have any ideas, comments, or suggestions or if you want to contribute to TsukuBlog (or Alien Times or Tsukuba Wiki) in any way, please let me know.
