Kanji a Day is ending.
It’s time for me to leave.
Kanji a Day started as a way to help me learn kanji, as part of my effort to learn Japanese. It was a personal project; I never expected it to get more than a dozen followers, much less the 11,000+ of you who are here today.
But I haven’t actually learned any new kanji for a while now, and Kanji a Day has become less a labor of love and more a chore. Composing posts takes little time but I still struggle to fit it into my day, and more than once I’ve found myself resenting the time I have to take to post a new kanji and look up the right “Classic” kanji.
After more than three years and 1,126 kanji, I need to move on.
I hope I’ve helped you learn Japanese, and that your learning continues long after Kanji a Day succumbs to bit rot. Take care and be well.
