Few quick updates on my Chinese blog for those of you who are interested. You will recall that I officially started the è¦?å¦å°±è¯´ Blog back in July in an effort to learn more characters. My goal is to get my reading / typing up to the same level as my spoken. We’ll see after that.
I’ve been really pleased with the response – so big, big thanks to everyone who has responded with either corrections or chit-chat. All of the dicussion happens on buzz and facebook, which was to be expected given that the site is blocked in China.
Anyway, few quick updates…
- I’ve changed the template, so if you can access the blog itself then it looks a bit nicer, I decided that emperor yellow everywhere was too much.
- You can now access the blog at yaoxuejiushuo.triviality.net – I’d rather hoped this was going to allow China based people to access the blog directly. For technical (Posterous) reasons this isn’t currently the case but I’ve high hopes for the future (the old Posterous link still works, so no need to update bookmarks / rss).
- Finally, expectations. I’d originally set myelf the ambitious target of posting twice a week. Neither my time nor my supply of interesting things to talk about seems to support this. So, officially from now on, I’m aiming for one post a week.
