I'm just one in a long line of Japanese female bloggers

I love that Maria Popova of Brain Pickings calls Sei Shōnagon the world's first blogger. It turns out, through this blog, I'm carrying on a cultural tradition! ;)

[Sei Shōnagon (清少納言 born c. 966 ~ died c. 1025) was a Japanese diarist/author/poet/court lady who is most famous for writing Makura no Sōshi (枕草子 The Pillow Book), which was completed in 1002 and translated into English in 1889.]
