Surprisingly, it has already been 4 months since I updated this English blog.
We have improved the UI of MessageLeaf in many aspects in this period including major design change of the website. The official launch of Japanese version was done on Oct.10, and now we are happy to announce that our English version is officially launched.
<Front Page and Account Management Page>
As you can see, our front page (http://en.messageleaf.jp/) is fully renewed as shown below.
We also made the account management page fully available in English, which enables any English bloggers or website owners to set up MessageLeaf on their sites by themselves.
<Newly applicable blog services>
We have made MessageLeaf applicable to all the main 3 blog services in English. Those are WordPress, Tumblr, and Blogger. Covering the “big 3”, we expect around 200 mil blog owners have become our potential users.
Although we can set MessageLeaf both on Tumblr and on Blogger in normal form, WordPress.com is exception as it does not allow sidebar customization. Coping with this problem, we created new button instead of popup gadget for WordPress.com blogs. The button, if appropriately set, would look like the following picture.
<Virtual Cycle to go global>
As shown in our vision and mission, we hope many blog owners will set up MessageLeaf on theirs sites so that they will have feedback otherwise unheard, and will be encouraged to make yet another good entry. We feel this kind of virtual cycle has already started in Japan, and are very sure that the same thing will happen all over the globe.
