About This Site
This is a personal blog by Naoko Takano (高野直子; formerly, Naoko McCracken).
I moved my blog at blog.detlog.org domain into this domain on September 19, 2011. It used be a self-hosted WordPress blog, but it’s now running on WordPress.com hosted blogging service with a custom domain mapping.
About the Author
I’m a Globalizer at Automattic, the company behind WordPress.com. I was born and raised in Fukuoka, Japan. I studied and worked in the U.S. (Missouri & Michigan) for total of 14 years before moving back to Japan in 2011. I’m currently living in Tokyo with my husband & daughter.
I help Japanese WordPress community, blog for WordPress.com, have written WordPress books, organize WordPress events. In case you can’t tell which blogging software I’d recommend – let me say WordPress is a fine choice!
When I’m not in front of my Mac, I enjoy playing with my daughter, listening to podcasts, traveling, and reading (mostly non-fiction & some contemporary novels).
