Custom Domain

I bought a custom domain in August last year for the main blog, which is However, while creating a new tumblr account today (4th July 2012) did I realize that I could use the characters that come before that for other places with just editing the DNS settings of that same domain.

I have changed the domain for most of my blogs. Entering the older URL still works, but would be redirected to the new URL. The names of each blog affected listed below are in bold.

  1. Chasing After Rainbows (existing) or
  2. 虹を追いかけて or 虹を追いかけて
  3. Neverending New Beginnings
  4. 終わらない新しい始め
  5. Profile and Blog Updates (here)
  6. にじとき
  7. Injuration
  8. :;:〒 takaharu じー」
 At the time of writing this, I have not discovered other places I have that could do this except for Wordpress. However, Wordpress insists that I must pay $14 (per year?) to be able to do so with my existing domain.

    Updating of links to my stories

    If you have read the stories I wrote on my main blog, you would have noticed that the links might not go all the way to the latest post.

    As these links are done manually, this might take a while to do it, and I might tend to overlook some of them. If you do, please mention or DM me on twitter.

    Some of you might be wondering why my other blogs aren't updated recently. Well, I have a lot of things to do, and it's not worth my time and effort into something that doesn't even pay me. Can't even by fruits with it.

    If you are feeling generous, please donate to me via PayPal. Send a direct message to me for details.

    To follow or not

    I've my various reasons for following, not following, or stopped following (replace "following" with "to circles" or "friended" where applicable). As much as I like to follow you back, I don't want my timeline to be filled with junk too. What is listed here mostly applies to twitter.

    Reasons for following:

    1. You are already being followed by several people I'm already following and possibly receiving mentions from the said person regularly
    2. Your tweets are interesting
    3. Out of curisosity
    Reasons for not following:
    1. Tweets are mostly in a language that I don't understand
    2. Too much links, including "I favourited a Youtube video" or "MyAnimeList updated".
    3. Protected account, so I don't know what you are tweeting about (protected accounts you see in my following list were not protected at the time I followed them)
    4. Not interested / Never seen you before
    5. Too many retweets
    6. Boring tweets
    7. Ugly profile and/or display image (if viewing via the PC web version at that time)
    8. Has a #teamfollowback hashtag somewhere
    9. Number of followers is more than several thousand
    10. (For accounts of well-known people) Not from a personal point of view
    11. Adopting a wait-and-see approach if not having the same interest or not having anyone I'm following following them too.
    Reasons for unfollowing:
    1. Tweet too frequently and clogging up my timeline, especially when I'm following a lot of people.
    2. Became uninterested. "Protected" accounts are not excluded.
    3. Spamming my timeline with rubbish at the time I saw you doing it. This includes replies to those that we both follow.
    4. Thanking all followers individually for following and not placing the username first. One right after the other for countless times. (Example)
    5. Not on good terms (They usually unfollow me first.)
    6. Tweets too infrequently (eg. 5 tweets a month), or the last one was a long time ago
    7. Changes to a display image (and maybe display name too) to something I find disturbing
    Reasons for blocking:
    1. Obvious spammer (and gets reported too)
    2. Corporate accounts following me based on what I said recently
    3. Accidentally did so
