I started this blog in 2013 as part of an online course, hoping to connect with others with similar interests or questions. I typically write about a specific person, incident or occasion that has inspired me, aggravated me, or made me curious to learn more. I’ve used categories and tags to try to make finding a specific post easier.
Now, nearly ten years in, I expect it’s time to do some blog pruning. Over the rest of 2022 and into early 2023, I’ll gradually be deleting posts that seem to me to have outlived their usefulness. Later in 2023, I expect to remove the blog altogether. If you have a favorite post, you are welcome to make a copy or print it off before it goes away.
One blog category, the “China W(a/o)nderings” heading, concerns China, and is based partly on my travels and teaching there. In 2018, I published a longer work, Where the Great Wall Ends: A China Memoir, incorporating some of the information first blogged about here. If you’re interested in China, please check out the China entries in this blog. If you’d like a deeper China experience, check my author page, jinnybatterson.com for more information about purchasing the book, available in multiple formats through either your local independent bookstore or via Amazon.
