Tsinghua Blogs

As a service to the blogosphere and also so I can possibly meet fellow bloggers, I’m going to compile a list of Tsinghua bloggers. I found these blogs through a series of Technorati searches over several days. Alas almost twenty years later almost none of them are online. MSN Spaces must have been abandoned by Microsoft as many in China were using that product.

Blogging is harder than Twitter or Instagram or YouTube

All but two of the blogs I linked to are now unavailable. The final surviving two have not been updated in many years though I am still Facebook friends with Julia which is more than I can say about some of my MBA Classmates. Very few people maintain a blog for over a decade. Not only is Muskblog still online over a decade later, I’m updating my old blog posts after once again leaving China.

In 2024 I decided to delete links that no longer work, especially if they have been taken over by domain squatters, which thankfully wasn’t the case here. Emlyn does have a new blog, but I don’t know what he did with his old content, he’s actually gone on to write books and stuff.

I managed to finish an MBA and passed all three CFA® exams and still could not find a job other than English teacher in the Middle Kingdom. I did however write a large number of blogs posts on China over the years. I suggest you read the best of them.

    It’s 2013 and I’m going through old blog postings, re-tagging them, editing, sorting, deleting. I decided to see if any of the Tsinghua bloggers were still active. Of the few blogs still online, the last updates are in 2007. Most are no longer on the Internet or have been set to private…

    Most people don’t maintain a blog for five or more years or a homepage for a dozen or more.
