New Theme: Yukata Summer (Beta)

Nanyate?! has a new theme! This layout is titled “Yukata 浴衣 Summer”. For those who are unfamiliar with Japanese culture, yukata is the summer version of a kimono 着物. The flower in the background is inspired from a yukata featured in last year’s issue of JJ Magazine. Yes, I drew it. And yes, it took…


Checking Website Statistics

Question of the Month: How do you measure your site’s success? (i.e. doing what you want it to do) Having owned a site from the world of Geocities back in 1996, and many frequent hiatuses, the world of Web 2.0 is, for the most part, still quite alien to me. I don’t fully understand the…

WordPress Updated; Beta No More

WordPress Upgrade: I always dread seeing that yellow bar on my WordPress Dashboard incessantly reminding me to update my blogging client. It means I have to deactivate 10 plugins, go to PHPmyAdmin backup my tables and manually upgrade folder by folder. Then I gotta reactivate all my plugins, and check to make sure everything is…
