About JapandamanDotCom

Hello to all and thanks for stopping by!

So the obligatory backstory...looking back to 2010 and I remember thinking there wasn't an Australia based site covering facets of the Japanese pop culture, or Otaku sub culture, that I liked. From that came a brainstorm which lead to many days and nights of "yes, no, yes, no", "should I start this crazy idea?" Eventually I gave in and JapandamanDotCom was born. Fast forward to 2017 and we're still going strong with a great, loyal readership and expanding all the time with the creation of new segments for the site.

I've always had a passion for writing so sourcing news from friends in Australia and Japan was always exciting for me as I love creating content that appeals to me and therefore will, I believe, appeal to our readers.

What Am I getting To?

I never started this awesome ride with the idea of making money from the site. Making money when you're not selling anything to your audience seemed farfetched and an impossible concept. So to this day, I have never charged for content as I want Japandaman DotCom to reach as much of an audience as possible. I have played with the idea of having ads on the site but to be perfectly honest, I never saw any income from them even after running them for over one year and I felt they slowed the site down a bit so the ads went. A little while ago, the site was hacked which saw a MASSIVE injection of porn words via SQL injection. This then led to me moving the site to a managed solution with real time antivirus tracking to hopefully prevent any more intrusions.

How Can I help?

This is what brings me to Patreon. I'm not asking for large amounts of money, that's not what this is about. All I'm asking for is if you like what you see and read on the site and would like to show your appreciation, just send a dollar my way. That's it. Just one dollar. If you would like to send more, that's also appreciated but one dollar shows me that what I've been building for the past seven years hasn't gone unnoticed or unappreciated. There are no hidden strings so if you need to ask me a question, please feel free to drop me an email.

So, thank you for visiting Japandaman DotCom and thank you for stopping by, having a read and hopefully making a contribution. Many, many thanks... or as we say, arigatou gozaimasu!
