You'll notice in the right margin, I've added categories by topic. So, in addition to reading posts by month/year, you can read by topic simply by clicking the subject matter that you prefer. For example, if you want to read exclusively about Japan, just click on the Japan link and all the relevant articles will appear. I've configured the site to only show three articles at one time on the intro page so you will need to check the topics often as articles will migrate off the intro page rather quickly.
Be on the lookout for a 'poll' as I would like to make this site more interactive.
Thanks for reading!
