I’ve been planning to write this disclaimer slash simple explanation behind many of those photos that I posted last week. However, it’s been quite a busy week and as usual, I guess I just lost in my daily routines.
For those of you who are following my blogs and have been wondering what the heck was going on with me –by uploading those pictures without even a sentence of caption (does this person not understand the different function of Instagram and blog? 😂), here goes the explanation:
I have been working as a freelance writer in Tokyo since like six months ago. (Un)fortunately, the firms I’ve been working together with are probably the biggest newspaper and PR firm in Japan, and as grateful as I am to have worked with them, I can’t deny that sometimes it’s been like a pain in the ass too… because Japanese firms in general aim for perfection and they are extremely cautious to the point of avoiding the big risks, although in return, the quality of the result/product would suffer.
As a writer, you need to post several pictures on their blogs too. And although we (other writers and I) have attributed/credited the photo owner properly (like normal news portal usually do, mentioning the photo owner and their web/affiliation), seemingly it’s just not enough. We need to be really really really extra careful with the property right, and in some cases when I couldn’t find the suitable photos which fulfill all the requirements, I just uploaded my own pictures in this blog.
So that’s the explanation! I am sorry for the inconveniences that I might have caused you, hehe, I hope you will not unsubscribe me lol.
