I sold my first Tokyo ebook! Actually it was sold by an affiliate, but I am still happy. From doing a few Google searches, I have noticed a couple of people selling the book. I have tried Adwords, but Tokyo related keywords are expensive and I didn’t have a single convert. I haven’t done any […]

It is warming up here in Tokyo, making it difficult to sleep. I couldn’t concentrate on my book, so I thought I would play around a bit with some video I have taken. I would like to improve my video editing skills to put together some interesting videos, but I find it pretty time consuming. […]
