This is a personal blog by Naoko Takano (高野直子; formerly, Naoko McCracken), running on WordPress.com.

About the Author

I’m a Globalizer at Automattic, the company behind WordPress.com, Jetpack, Tumblr, and more. I was born and raised in Fukuoka, Japan then I studied and worked in the U.S. (Missouri & Michigan) for a total of 14 years before moving to Tokyo in 2011. In 2023, I moved to Yakushima, Japan with my husband and two kids.

I help the Japanese and global WordPress communities. I also organize WordPress events in Japan and Asia.

I really enjoy listening to audiobooks and podcasts whenever my mind and ears are not occupied by something else. I’m currently learning Spanish.
