I took a sabbatical of a few weeks on this blog as I had to prepare to do a talk at a conference for work, so now that I performed the talk I still can’t put myself to post something here…
So is this the end of Bosozoku Style? Well I don’t know honestly. Perhaps I need a longer break and get back even better than before!
Sorry for the lack of posts in the past week, but I was very busy on recreating the whole site in WordPress! So bye bye Drupal, hello WordPress! 🙂
In contrary to Banpei.net I decided I could only relaunch the whole site with all posts and images migrated and worked very hard on a conversion script from Drupal to WordPress (lucky that I’m doing such things as a job already, so I’m experienced with that!). It may be loading a bit slow compared to the old site, but I’ll work on the optimization in the upcoming weeks.
If you experience dead links, wrong content or any other weird things: please let me know!
Hope you like the new look and feel of the site! 🙂
Remark: I made a big mistake and forgot to change a config value causing nobody to be able to comment. Everything should be fine now!by banpei with 3 comments
I really had to laugh when I found this on a kaido racer blog!
To quote the blogger:
A little silly….(;´?`)?

We completely forgot that two days ago Bosozoku Style became two years of age!
Last year we wrote we had about 700 facebook fans. If I take a look at the right sidebar I see 2631 facebook likes (they renamed that during the year) so that is more than 1900 more than last year!
Some fun facts from Google as well: during the past year 112,287 people visited our site and looked at 328,671 pages altogether! Compared to the year before that is three times as much! Amazing!
Let’s not forget that also the Bosozoku Coloring Book became a big hit! Add the addition of stickers to that and we can say the merchandise is getting up to speed. 😉
To celebrate the second anniversary this we already added the coloringbook + sticker combo with discount to the shop:
Sticker and coloringbook combo
We will prolong this discount for another two week extra!
No, I’m not taking on any bets and certainly not going to do Michael Palins effort in half the time…
It is all about this envelope I received earlier this week: one of the orders for the Bosozoku Style Coloringbook than was returned to sender. Not that it is that odd, but what was odd was the state of the envelope:
Around the world in 40 days
It went all the way to New Zealand (about on the opposite site of the earth for me) and back in 40 days! I do use thick and heavy envelopes with a solid back to send it to the buyers who are not on the continent. And miraculously the contents survived well enough to be resent to the buyer (with a new address) so it was a good thing to take those precautions! 🙂
