An article about me titled 老外愛台灣 (“Laowai” loves Taiwan) was published on the China Times blog (中時部落格) today. It is written in Chinese so if you can read Chinese check it out. For those who can’t read Chinese I’ll translate the first paragraph of the article below.
Working, travelling and studying in Taiwan for four or five years, David is fascinated by the rich cultural diversity of Taiwan as well as being interested in Taiwan’s temples. As a result of his love for Taiwan David shares all the sights and sounds of Taiwan on his blog and also helps manage the well known English community website Taiwanderful. He hopes he can let people in every corner of the world know more about Taiwan or at least make sure they know where Taiwan is. [English translation by David]
The article mentions Taiwanderful, although I think Fili deserves more credit for that website than I do. It serves as a useful reminder that the voting in the Taiwan blog awards opens tomorrow. You can find all the details about how to vote at Taiwanderful. Visit the blog directory and vote for the blogs you like. The blog awards can also promote link love between Taiwan blogs. If you have a blog link to other blogs you like and ask your readers to vote for them. This helps to bring more attention to Taiwan blogs which is the aim of the awards.
The China Times is also running its 4th annual blog awards (2008第四屆全球華文部落格大獎) for the vast Chinese-language blogosphere. 1,005 blogs in 11 categories were selected for the second round from a total of 10,247 entrants. A further selection will be made before the final round of voting.
