We are coming to you from the revamped headquarters of TenkaraGrasshopper Media, LLC to thank all of you, our loyal readers,  for giving us such a great 2014. Because of you all, we have kept TenkaraGrasshopper alive and kicking, with a few hiccups along the way and some slow post updates. For that we are deeply sorry and we aim to remedy that in the coming year.

Today, more than just thanking you, the President and Head Blogger of TenkaraGrasshopper.com felt that it was time to let you all know that we have some new things coming down the pipeline that you might consider a late Christmas present or even an early birthday present, depending on when your birthday is.

A Message from our President and Head Blogger

TenkaraGrasshopper.com started as a blog for me to share my experiences as a tenkara angler back at the end of 2010 and the beginning of 2011. Well here we are at the end of 2014 and so many things have happened since the birth of the website. I have always tried to give all of you new things to explore on the site and have tried to offer what I can to those of you who are still learning tenkara. I understand that there have been some gaps in what you are all looking for.

As many of you are aware I have added my Guide Tips feature to the blog and I will continue with that in the near future. I have gotten great feedback from you and I look forward to hearing more from you over the next year with the new installments that will be coming out. 

So with everything that has been going on with the site and the changes that have been instituted over the last year I decided that additional changes needed to be made to the site. At the request of some of you and at the suggestion of others I have made the decision that I will be moving from a Google Blogger platform to a WordPress (WP) platform. I am very excited about the prospect of offering a completely new site to all of you for your viewing pleasure.

I must warn you that this will not happen immediately as I will be taking my time to get everything set up exactly as I want it hopefully with not to many snafus along the way. There will be a learning curve that I will need to deal with as I start the new site since I have become so comfortable with the Blogger platform. I am already studying all I can learn about my new WP template and reading the documentation that came with it so that I can get things dialed in in a timely manner.

Because of the opportunities that the WP template will give me I will be able to add additional features and streamline the pathways to other things. Many of the current features you find on the site today will still be there with some major changes and minor changes as the case my be depending on the plug-ins I am using.

I intend to add many new items that I have found useful and I hope that they will help to make your experiences on TenkaraGrasshopper more enjoyable as well. I am keeping many of the new features a secret so that you can start exploring when the new site goes live. I apologize in advance that the layout will be quite different from the current layout. 

With that being said, I would like to ask all of you, my readers, to please send me any requests or suggestions for topics, features, or items that you would like to see on the new site by sending me an email by following this link to my Contact Me page. I will read and answer all communications that I receive unless I feel that they are spam which will be fed to my cats or used for litter box filler material.

Thank you for your time reading this and I look forward to hearing from you all in the very near future.

Merry Christmas Happy Hannukah, Happy Kwanza, Happy Solstice, Happy Just Any Other Day

Tight Lines and Tenkara
