If you’ve read every article so far on Seeingredinchina.com now, you have now read the equivalent of a 200+ page book, and hopefully have learned something new about China.
If you haven’t caught every exciting article (and the ones in between) make sure to check out the archive.
Here are a few of the posts that I think were my best work:
- There must be something in the air
- Mao’s fuzzy math and the one child policy
- Can the world afford China’s heating bill
- Your home in rural Guangxi
- It’s easy to learn Chinese, really
- China’s GDP doesn’t mean what you think it does
- Is inflation a Party crasher?
- A fight at the hospital – Abortion in China
- Common questions about Christianity in China
- Protests in Inner Mongolia, is this really about race?
- The plight of the mentally disabled in China
I am also excited to announce that the SeeingRedInChina.com was recently given a glowing review by ChinaLawBlog.com, and was mentioned in an article by James Fallows on TheAtlantic‘swebsite.
In the coming months I’m planning on adding more pictures and videos, as well as new guest posts and hopefully some interviews. I am also working on convincing a friend to write a series of weekend posts that will tell his story from the moment he arrives in the middle kingdom.
I always welcome direct emails at firstname.lastname@example.org, and will generally respond within 24 hours.
Thank you so much for taking the time to read this blog, this project has been far more successful than I had imagined it could be.
Congratulations, Tom. I enjoy your blog very much, very stimulating, a good crowd of visitors, not to mention we get to hear about the scene of 20+ people watching you getting a shot–darn it, where was I?
What an amazing writing enterprise. I appreciate every post. You have made my tour of China in 2001 with my two sons an even more enlightening experience “after-the-fact” with your insights. Thank you and keep up the good work!
Fantastic Blog! Well done Tom! And a great bunch of Commentators and Guest Posts. I have learned so much and never has learning been so enjoyable. Praise from James Fallows is praise indeed. I loved his book “Postcards from Tomorrow Square – Reports from China” and have recommended his wife, Deborah Fallow’s book “Dreaming in Chinese” to people wanting a gentle introduction to Chinese language and Middle Kingdom life. Nice people, good writers both of them – and so are you!
Read “Dreaming in Chinese” and thought it was pretty interesting. Didn’t realize the two of them were married. I’ll have to look for the husband’s book now…
Tom, congrats on 200 posts! Prior to yours, I rarely read any blogs, let alone followed them regularly. Yours is the one that stands out and I am grateful. Thanks!
Thanks for your support Mr. Chopstick, I think you were the first regular commenter on the blog, and it was a great morale boost.
Wow, that’s something! Keep up the good work!
Congratulations, Tom! Your posts continue to be thoughtful and informative and, like Meryl, I’m always anxious to hear the thoughts many of the veteran commenters have to offer as well.
