Housekeeping Notes

"Sinocism is the Presidential Daily Brief for China hands"- Evan Osnos, New Yorker Correspondent and National Book Award Winner

I am no longer going to commit to providing links to suggested readings everyday. I will continue to post them sporadically, schedule permitting, but the daily commitment is taking too much focus away from more productive efforts.

All you readers are wonderful and special, but there are not enough of you. I had tried to find a bigger platform on which to house the entire Sinocism blog but no one bit. Therefore I am going to refocus my energies away from what is effectively a dead end into things more likely to feed my family and clothe my princesses.

I will still occasionally post original content along with the links, so the blog is not going away entirely and there is no reason to delete it from your feedreader…

I apologize to those inconvenienced by this, and especially the handful (not quite two hands worth of fingers) who donated through Paypal. If you want a pro-rated refund let me know and we can work something out.

I will still be on Twitter @niubi.

Thanks for reading.

  1. Big disappointment. I’m in college and a rabid China watcher–if you ever decide to resume this effort, you’ll have my financial support as soon as I have an income.

  2. Thanks for everything up to now, I’ll still be checking in every once in a while

    • thanks for reading. to be clear, i am not going away. i am just no longer committing to do this daily, though in reality there will be probably be something most days

  3. Sorry to hear it,  I only found this blog recently and like it very much. But of course, I also understand your position entirely. I’m keeping the RSS feed in my bookmarks and look forward to whatever you post in the future.

  4. a suggestion – use or any other bookmarking service to just post links on twitter [maybe a separate account] or elsewhere. like one of the readers above, i’m a student as well and i find your work truly remarkable and extremely valuable.

    a suggestion – maybe seek sponsorship in addition to donations?

    • thanks, for the kind words and suggestions.

      not nearly enough readers for sponsorship

      i use pinboard to bookmark interesting items, then postalicious wordpress plugin to pull the tagged ones into a daily post
