Ask the Yangxifu, Travel guides, More posts…Coming up in 2010

Well, while everyone is getting their lists together and checking them twice for Christmas, I’m doing the same — in terms of  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…

Ask the Yangxifu

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 the 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. 😉

  1. Your blog is getting even more interesting. Nice work and keep it going, I am a big fan of yours.

    I have a little suggestion to your website if you don’t mind. I think you can add some relevant pictures or other form of Media into your articles. It will make your pieces more lively and illustrative. Importantly more fun!!!! And I guess this will attract more readers and comments as well. I remembered that I preferred read American text books rather than British ones when I was doing my degree in England. They normally have one or two relevant pictures in the text, only a few pictures made it so different.

    Merry Christmas and Best Wishes In 2010.

    1. Dear J,

      Thanks so much for the thoughtful comment! Great suggestion, too. My posts could use a little more color, and I am sitting on a lot of digital photos. I’ll definitely keep that in mind.

      Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you too!
