There is three kind of blogs that will impress me: blog that has nice contents, nice blog theme design and the third one is a dedicated blogger that update his or her blog regularly for a long time. Obviously Shoko Nakagawa’s blog falls under the third category, because it is very impressive that on how extremely fast she updates her blog! Averaging 20+ posts per day!
Shoko Nakagawa (中川翔子) or best known as nickname “Shokotan”, is a cute and multi talented Japanese idol. According to Wikipedia, she is active in a variety of field including acting, manga, singing and blogging. Her official blog “Shokotan*Blog” (しょこたん☆ぶろぐ), was started in year 2004 and she treated her blog as her dairy. She update her blog extremely regularly. Her daily best record is 86 updates on February 14, 2007. That means she update her blog every 17 minutes on that day!
Lets take a look on the monthly archive statistic on the left sidebar of her pinkish blog. The highest number of blog entries for a month is february 2007 which is 701, thanks to the extreme updates mentioned above. Hitting 400-500 blog entries per month is normal for her. I am wondering how a celebrity which usually busy but still can update her blog so frequently. Her blog has attracted 500 million hits on February 2007 and her dedication on blog has earn her “New Queen of Blog” crown.
Recently Oricon conducted a research survey on which celebrity bloggers gained in popularity this year, and clearly Shokotan gets the number one spot, beating another celebrity blogger star Chinatsu Wakatsuki. A female high school student commented that “speaking about blog, I can’t think about anyone else but Shokotan”. Her blog is also very well known as she invented her own blogging language call “Shokotan-go”, and because her love for game and comic, she was treated as “goddess” in 2-channel board.
2007 definitely is a wonderful year for Shokotan, few single released, first appearance on Kohaku Utagassen as well as owning the most popular celebrity blog in Japan. In the new year, looks like she is going to continue her passion on regular updates on her blog as until today, she already posted 200+ entries! Keep up the good work Shokotan! Gambatte!
