I NEED YOU! YES, YOU! All right enough with all the campaigning let me get to the actual point of this post.

I’m setting up a brand new WordPress website which I will run alongside this beloved little blog of mine. The name of it is Sounds of the Rising Sun and the blog will focus on Japanese music and anything and everything to do with the topic. I have always wanted to be self-employed and setting up this new website alongside my nerdy one will be a great step in achieving this goal of mine.

You may be wondering what this has to do with any of you guys. Well, basically I’m looking for contributors for the site. My goal is get to a minimum of 5 people on board to help contribute to the site and offer their own opinions and expertise on the various topics that will be covered. Contributions can either be a one off post, something you wish to do regularly or even something you want to do every once and a while. The site is looking for all sorts of content including:

  • News and updates
  • Album reviews
  • Live reviews
  • Listicles (top 10’s, top 5’s, etc)
  • Think/opinion pieces
  • Interviews
  • Photo diaries
  • Culture and travel posts intertwined with music
  • Any other ideas you may want to pitch which you think will work well for the site

There are so many wonderful writers in this community and I would love to have some of your contribute if you feel you have anything that you would like to bring to the table. There is absolutely no pressure from me (even with the ridiculous title of this post) I just want to offer you guys the opportunity to write about something that you may feel passionate about, things that you may not think work on your own blog, whatever the reason might be, I want you guys to have the opportunity to share your passions along with me!

  1. I’m not really of much help here because I’m a lot more passive in my consumption of music than I am anime/manga (and, although I’ve looked into some Japanese artists outside OPs/EDs/OSTs, I mostly prefer Western music), and thus don’t think I have the motivation to contribute unless I tie it to something else. I do have a post I’ve never been able to finish regarding the significance of the Nippon Budokan and its relevance in certain anime, but if I ever finish it, I’d like to keep it for myself…

    To be honest, I think Leap and Alfredo might actually be more useful here, because they’ve professed to having a love of Japanese music IIRC. Otherwise, good luck on running both blogs.
