Channel-Ai Community Blog

Hi everyone, welcome to the new Channel-Ai community blog. This is a project me and Jason has been planning on over the past few weeks. I have once used this blog to post my personal stuff but then I decided it’s such a waste and why not give it a greater purpose, that is to spread the love of Japanese music? There you go, a new direction has been set, and now let’s walk towards it.

As I mentioned above, this will be the community blog for Channel-Ai, a forum that’s dedicated to Japanese artist Ai Otsuka. So what does community blog means? Well, my vision is to let members of the forum who enjoy Japanese music to have a chance to share this love through blogging. Of course, you need to have good writing skills and knowledge about what you are writing or else people won’t be interested, will they? For that reason, authors of this community blog will be selective. You can apply within this topic posted at Channel-Ai by replying with details such as what type of music you would like to be writing for, what artist you would like to focus on etc., we will then select the qualified applicants and promote them to be authors of this community blog. If you are accepted, you will be notified via PM and more details will be enclosed.

What does it mean to be an author? You get to post message on this blog under your name, and you get to use Channel-Ai FTP should you need to upload a single or album (no abuse allowed though). You will automatically be listed as VIP in Channel-Ai which gives you member download access, and you will be well recognized for your contribution as well. How sweet eh?

After reading this much, what are you waiting for? I know quite a few of you who knows a lot about J-Pop, J-Rock, and even more about the artist you like, why not share your latest news and opinion about their upcoming releases and let other Ai’s fans to know about them as well? You never know how many new fans you can gain for your favourite artist through quality blogging.

This is a really nice site – the idea of a community blog to spread information is great.

I run a feed aggregate site devoted to English-language blogs about Japanese music called Feed of Pop. The idea’s to get more attention to sites like your own and develop a readership for quality blogs about Japanese music. I’ve already put a link of your blog on the site, but if you want me to actually include your feed to the stream, drop me a line and I’d be more than happy to do so.

Yeah, there’re numbers of singers or bands in Japan. The main objective of this blog is trying to introduce all those good singers/bands to everyone in this forum or even some other else. I really hope you guys will really love the idea of this blog.

For those who interest to be the author here, i suppose you’ll gain lotsa knowledge bout Jpop or Jrock. Great music must be shared among each other, this is what i used to do. For me, i will be really happy if my friends love the songs i recommend.
