Q: What are your favorite blogs about life in China ?

I have my own list of blogs which I follow, related in some ways to life in China.

http://mychinakanfa.blogspot.com/  VPN required
A middle-aged US citizen is a manager, often working around Shenzhen. He is in China (on and off) since the early 90's, married to a Chinese.  Posts are about business, his experience back in the early 90's, his wife, etc. I would not be a friend of this guy, but he tells a lot of interesting things that I don't see elsewhere.

A young Finnish student come to China to study Chinese and fulfilling a childhood wish. Three years later, she experienced a lot of aspects of the life in China, Guanzhou. She sounds like a shy but courageous woman.

A woman from US lived in China, felt in love with a guy from Zhejiang, and they married. She speaks a lot of relationship between non-Chinese women and Chinese men. Very interesting insights IMHO.

A lots of small conversations reported without fluff, providing an insight on daily life in China. From an Austrian girl who happily married a Chinese man.

A girl born in Malaysia went to Shanghai to reconnect a bit with her Chinese roots. She wrote a lot of funny (or sometime a bit angry) posts about her experience. Since she could pass for a Chinese in the eyes of Chinese, she had experiences that obvious foreigners can not have easily.

What's your read list ?

I also like Sara's blog.

 

But my favorites are  vlogs: Serpentza and Let China Sleep (I don't bother with reading the actual blogs, they keep their YouTube channels up-to-date.

 

There is this vlog called laowhy, that would be my least favorite vlog, that guy is just too obnoxius and irritating.

Thank you for mentioning my blog (Living a Dream in China: sarajaaksola.com), from Guangzhou I'm able to access it without VPN.

 

Speaking of China is my favorite and now that Jocelyn is back in China, I'm sure there will be even more interesting posts coming from her.

A:I think the first "not smart" thing you did was to think of everyone as a subordinate. They are in fact your team members. You are also a team member and your role is to supervise, not flex your muscles. It drives you nuts when your boss does this and then you do exactly the same thing. Think about it. Adapt, change, bend the rules and be more efficient. -- iWolf
