We Really Need To Talk About Repatriation – Pub’d on WWAM BAM

The group blog WWAM BAM just published my post titled We Really Need To Talk About Repatriation. For those of you who don’t know, repatriation is when you return to your country of citizenship after living abroad. Here’s an excerpt from the post:

…I’ve witnessed a number of bloggers over the years who struggle to write after repatriation. For some, their blogs go silent, as mine did after moving to America. Others might grapple with writer’s block and a host of other foes determined to keep them from putting their thoughts down.

But the bottom line is, when you’ve started to blog from a foreign country and you move back to your own country, there’s a good chance you might find it tough to blog.

Head on over to WWAM BAM to read We Really Need To Talk About Repatriation. And if you love it, share it!

    After you came back to the US, your blogs focused quite a bit on racism in this country.

    for those bloggers who have returned to their home country with their Chinese spouse, hearing from the spouse’s perspective would be an interesting continuation.

      Thank you for the comment — and yes, most definitely! I would love to hear more of those stories.

    Depends on where you go. In Cerritos, Milpitas, Cupertino the Asians are in the majority. So it is the white spouse who may feel she is still in China. My wife feels that way. We live in San Marino, near Pasadena, CA and here we hardly see any white people. My wife is homesick for China. She saw lot more white people in Shanghai than here in San Marino!
