I’m working on some changes for my blog, you’ll see the results after Chinese New Year. I love Chinese New Year. Not only is the entire country in party mode for a week or more, but it’s a perfect time to restart New Year’s Resolutions and send out my Christmas cards (or not send them. sigh).

WordPress sent me some nifty stats and I thought I’d share, in case you like that sort of thing. In 2010, I wrote 39 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 545 posts. My busiest day of the year was February 11th with 549 views. The most popular post that day was Good Luck Oranges.

The top referring sites in 2010 were,,,, and

Thanks to the folks at Taiwan blogs who featured me today and a warm hello to all those dropping by as a result. Hope you feel comfortable enough to comment and stay awhile.

No, I’m not moving this one to a new server or anything like that. I’m just starting a place to keep track of all those fun and funny places on the ‘net as I discover them. Check it out:

Julie K in Taiwan’s Links

Today is Taiwan’s national day (Double ten day) so I thought I’d focus a bit on how you can keep up to date with Taiwan’s bloggers. There are more of them then you could possibly ever hope to read in a lifetime so I’ll point out my favorites. That is, those who have posted a link to me, hah!

Michael’s Blog was one of the first blogs I discovered about Taiwan and it is full of useful information. And lots of political commentary. He had a great post about Taiwanese bakeries, which explains a lot about why I’m so excited about the doughnut shops, but I can’t find it at the moment. I posted a link to it on my old blog. I’ll give a prize to the first person who can hunt it down, lol.

Crafty blogs in Asia are listed at Allison’s blog

A huge list of blogs is given at Taiwan Blogs and they have featured blogs write ups.

And one that I’m not listed on, but is worth mentioning is Taiwan Photographer’s blog Great photos to be seen. I might submit something once I’ve gotten past the “baby photos” phase.

That should keep you busy for a bit. Let me know if you find any cool posts or other blogs.
