Website is coming
We are (finally) launching the new RetireJapan site tomorrow. We're going to be moving to retirejapan.com and the site will look a lot prettier. I'm told it should be easier for people to find it by searching, and it will be https so hopefully those annoying warnings from Google will cease :)
As part of the launch I wrote a short guide to personal finance in Japan, which you can get by signing up to the email list. If you are already signed up you should have received the guide a couple of days ago. If you didn't, please drop me a line and I will fix that.
I'm really hoping to spread the word a bit about RetireJapan with this launch. As the community has grown it's become very clear that the more people we have involved with RetireJapan in the forum, on Facebook, or commenting on the blog, the better. The more people we have, the more questions we get, the more experiences get shared, and the more wisdom we acquire as a community.
So I have a huge favour to ask: could you help spread the word a bit over the next few weeks?
The end of the year and the start of the next one are prime resolution territory: everyone is kind of taking stock and thinking about how to improve going forward.
There are three things specifically I would be grateful for:
- Mention RetireJapan on social media or in an email group/mailing list. If you can quickly explain what you specifically got out of it that would be even better.
- If you have editorial control of a website, email list, or publication, I would love to do an interview or guest post about RetireJapan. Drop me a line and we can talk about the details.
- Talk to 2-3 friends or colleagues about personal finance and tell them about RetireJapan. This is probably the most powerful one.
If you find any problems with the new site or have any comments, please let me know by email or in the comments below. Thanks for your support, I am amazed how far we have come :)
