China Travel: How do you choose your blogs, based on what criteria?Charlie: Content quality, relevance, duration (how long the site has been published), frequency of updates, and so forth. There are other considerations as well, like interaction, design of the site and whether or not there’s a relatively established readership. There is no hard and fast formula though since every blog is unique. China Travel: Can anyone submit? Charlie: Absolutely. China Travel: Will you deny anyone? Charlie: If they post original content that’s relevant to anyone else, almost certainly not.
China Travel: What are some of your favorite blogs?Charlie: China blogs: Danwei, ChinaHush and the Nciku Blog Others: Seth Godin, Tim Ferriss, Lifehacker China Travel: Who is your target audience? Charlie: There are two audiences: foreigners in China engaging their environment and people overseas interested in Chinese culture, language and happenings.
China Travel: What do you hope to achieve?Charlie: I hope to connect new people to blogs they love but haven’t even heard of. A bonus side effect would be for this to bring the China blogging community a little closer together and have something that connects them more closely.
