Well, while everyone is getting their lists together and checking them twice for Christmas, I’m doing the same — in terms of Â improving Speaking of China.
Thanks to the overwhelming support I’ve had so far, I’ve decided to expand this site with an ambitious plan, starting January 4, 2010. Here’s what you’ll be seeing:
One post a day, Monday to Friday
That’s right. You’ll find me here Monday to Friday, dishing up fresh content from the perspective of a Western woman with a Chinese husband. I’m also going to share my story of life with John, like a memoir — from how we met, to all of our crazy adventures and cultural clashes. Get ready for some serious reading, and serious fun. 😉
Some of these posts will be new formats, including the next two…
Over the months, I’ve gotten a lot of questions — through comments and e-mails — about dating, marriage and family problems in China. There’s so much more to tell, and sometimes it just doesn’t fit into my usual blog posts. That’s why I’m launching “Ask theÂ Yangxifu.” (Yangxifu = 洋媳妇 = foreign wife)
Here’s the deal. You send me your questions — it could be about anything, from dating and marriage issues in China to Chinese family dilemmas (and to those of you who are Chinese women or men, Chinese American women or men, Asian American women or men, or even foreign men in China, don’t worry — yes, you can ask too!). I’ll choose at least one a week and, on Friday, post the question and my answer. Depending on volume, I may even post more than one.
Don’t worry, your identity is safe — I will not reveal your personal information.
If you have a question in mind now, please don’t wait! Send it today. I’ll be planning for this virtual column in the next few weeks — so, the earlier, the better.
The Yangxifu’s Guide to Travel in China
This was inspired by a request from a reader, who was curious about my favorite off-the-tourist-track destinations. This will be a rotating column — I haven’t decided how often to post this, but expect it at least once a month. I’ll take you on a journey to some of my most beloved places in China. Expect a yangxifu take on it all. I’m not sure what the yangxifu travel perspective is yet, but we’ll figure it out as we go. 😉
