I'm taking a cue from another China blogger and will list all the links to my most popular posts so far. If you're new, you can catch up and if you're not, enjoy anyway and I will post a new topic soon.
Interactive Expat started out as a question and answer blog. People I know, and some I didn't know, email me all sorts of random questions about China and I post answers that included my experience of living in China. If I'm not sure of an answer, I do research or ask someone who would know. During question dry spells, I post my own stuff about China and what I think people might like to know.
If you have questions, feel free to contact me! Feedback is nice too, so topic suggestions and other input is always welcomed.
