Small updates to JM

Wow, it’s been a while since I made a site updates post. The last site updates post I made was about Janakya Mottainai moving to this blog. So, I suppose this marks my first official site update on this blog. XD
I just wanted to let my readers know that I have added an upcoming releases section to my blog. I’ve been wanting to make an upcoming releases section since I was still on my blogspot blog. But you know how I love to put things off, so much that I am finally making this section about 6 months or more later. After I saw a few other blogs with an upcoming release section I thought it would be a nice touch to my blog. Giving readers easy access to track upcoming releases as well as purchase upcoming singles. We’ve got a lot of things releasing on the same day, so it’ll be exciting to see who reaches number 1. But sadly H!P doesn’t stand a chance. XD

Also, I have a legal section on my blog. Which is more for the goverment than the readers. I’m just super paranoid that SOPA, or some future SOPA incarnate, will pass putting my whole blog in jeopardy. Luckily I have never posted any links to download anything. So, I should be good with that. It’s just the thousands of copywritten images I have scattered all over my blog. But ever since I started JM I was always super paranoid that someday I would get in trouble for all my images, so I usually leave all the copyrights on the bottom of shop photos. I’m pretty sure they are only shop photos for Johnny’s. All other agencies just refer to them as photo sets. But whatever, shop photos sound better. And if SOPA does pass that means I would probably have to cut out all idol groups without official youtube channels. Since posting copywritten videos would probably cause the most issues. It would suck, but I’m fully prepared to stop blogging about Johnny’s. Pretty much every other idol group aside from Johnny’s have official youtube channels. And I’ve also been stockpiling IP addresses so I can still access all the blacklisted and blocked websites in case it does get passed. Hey, better safe than sorry. XD Things like the Fair Use Act and the Digital Millennium Copyright Act should be able to protect us from SOPA, however they probably aren’t strong enough.





As you can tell, Janakya Mottainai has a new home. So, welcome to my first post on my new blog!







After my whole bandwidth exceeded fiasco on my blog, International Wota offered to host me on their server (it’s server right? XD). And being as awful as I am at computers and HTML I turned them down at first. But the switch was actually a lot easier than I could have imagined or realized. And being hosted by IW ensures that I, or any of my readers, will never have to worry about my pictures being unavailable again. Which actually takes a lot of pressure and stress off of me. Before I switched to this blog I was painstakingly resaving and reuploading all of my pictures on imgur. Which was a daunting task, and I uploaded about 300 images, which is why some of my pictures still work. But since I was working backwards only my oldest post’s pictures show up.

Eventually all of my posts from my blogger blog will be imported into this new blog. I’m not exactly sure how that works, but the folks at IW ensure me it can be done. But I’m sure all you internet savvy people know how that works. So, you guys can look forward to that when it happens.

Right now my blog is pretty plain looking, but that’s only fleeting. Eventually I’m going to get the awesome people at IW to help me with the HTML to make my blog look pretty much like it did on blogger. So, look forward to that also. :]

Right now I am working on getting used to wordpress. WordPress is pretty similar to blogger, but I’m still working out the kinks and getting the feel for it. I added all my things on my side bar and navigation bar. It would be amazing if all my affiliates and people who have my blog on their blogroll updated their links with my new site.

There are still some things I’m unsure of how to do on wordpress. Like how to have people follow, or I guess subscribe, to my blog. And I don’t know how to follow, or subscribe, to other blogs so they show up on my front page like it did on blogger. Also, I’m a little unsure about the categories section. Like do they categories show up somehwere on your blog as you post in those categroies? Because that would be super convenient for people who only read certain sections of my blog, like posts about JE, H!P, or Passpo.

I also want to send a huge thank you to IW for hosting my blog. If it wasn’t for them I would still be uploading pictures to imgur. Back when I first starting blogging IW was something I aspired to. When I saw a blog that I loved reading, the now inactive Stardust, being hosted by IW it was always something I wanted to happen to my blog. As foolish as that sounds in retrospect. But I am actually pretty ecstatic that JM has reached that level.

My next few posts on this blog are going to be my catch up posts. There hasn’t been that much news to really post about for the last 2-3 days. Which is actually a relief. Usually when I go on hiatus the idol world seems to have a sudden boom. XD I’m also happy I’ll be blogging in time for August 24th. Which is the release date of both Flying Get and ViVi Natsu. Let’s see if Yukimi actually does go blad, even though I highly doubt it. XD

But you guys know how I love to procrastinate, so don’t expect those posts until tomorrow.
