Taiwanderful - Taiwan Best Blogs 2011

Local Color:  The Colors of Yingge

Ah, the month of December.  December is a good month for me, usually.  It’s Christmas month.  The weather is starting to get colder.  The rain is starting to fall a little more often.  During December I’m glad I’m in Taiwan and not some frozen white place in North America.

But not only is this Christmas time and wintertime, it is also time for the Annual Taiwan Best Blog contest and once again the Taiwan Adventure is participating.

Last year, we finished eighth in the popular vote for our category, but I think our performance has been enhanced this year.  The blog seems a little more professional and has a lot more readership.  I’ll start crunching numbers for the Pathetical Analyticals post for 2011, pretty soon.  That’s the way to really tell if we’ve improved. Of course, after last year efforts we can only get better.

Eating My Way Through Taiwan:  The Stink of Adventure
One of the many good things that have happened to us this year is that we have become a "Featured Blogger," for We Blog the World.  This is a fantastic opportunity for us.  Readership has skyrocketed to about 3,000 readers a month.  Many of the other blogs may think this is a small amount but we actually improved from an average of 1,090 readers/month to 3,000 readers per month. From 1,764 unique visitors to 10,463. 

The nice thing about the Taiwan Adventure is the diversity of posts.  They range from Taiwanese Traditions to Traveling with M13 to Eating My Way Through Taiwan.
