    Hi Kate,

    My name is Richard and I’m the site admin for Cruisy, (http://www.cruisy.com.tw) a brand new website for English speakers living in Taiwan. It is up and running and inviting Taiwan bloggers to contribute. At present this offer is only open to WordPress bloggers, so I really welcome you to try it out.

    The overall aim of the Cruisy website is to give people living in Taiwan a place to read and comment on the latest of Taiwan blogs, browse and comment on Taiwan Flickr photos, and catch up on international news.

    If you decide to become a contributor, there would be plenty of links through to your site and all links in your blog entries (including comments) would remain in tact. Featured blog entries will be promoted on the homepage, other pages throughout the site, and through the site’s facebook page.

    How do you contribute your blog? Just register and click the “Yes, I want to contribute” button and, once your blog has been approved, your blog entries will automatically be grabbed and displayed as an article on Cruisy. And if, for any reason, you find it’s not right for you, you can just hit the “No, I don’t want to contribute button” on the user profile page at any time.

    You can read more about becoming a contributor at http://www.cruisy.com.tw by clicking the contributor link at the bottom.

    I’d be interested to hear what you think!

    Cruisy Site Administrator

    I read some of your articles carefully and your content can be really for our readers looking for activities in Taiwan !
    In consequence, I decided to select your blog !

    I just wanted to express my gratitude for your blogging! I recently moved to Taichung, and came across your maps and tagging (gold mine!). They have colored my experience of this city, so thanks.
    Where have you been?

      Thanks so much for your comment – inspiring! Hoping to get back to writing soon; more explorations of the city coming up. And since you’re in the city, feel free to stop by the office/shop sometime and introduce yourself.
