Removed my Email from Blog

Today, I removed my email address signiture from every page of my blog.

Old footer of individual page in this blog

I put on my email into my blog from day one of blogging. I enjoy being interactive with my readers. When there is not so much traffic, it was very rare to get any email from reader. Later, after my monthly page view reached about 1 million, I got two or three emails everyday. Most people seek for help about Shanghai. The questions helped me to find good topics to write about Shanghai.

This March, after my job change, I find it very hard to follow the emails. Now when monthly page view mraches to about 2 million, I simply don’t have time to even read all the emails in my email box. It is very bad that someone put effort to write an email to me, waitted somewhere in the world, but I don’t have the ability to reply. So I decided to remove my email from this site. It is not easy to balance being “open” (by posting my email address), or being realistic (by realizing that I don’t have time for it), I finally choose the easy one – to keep my email to limited audience…

  1. “It is not easy to balance being “open” (by posting my email address), or being realistic (by realizing that I don’t have time for it), I finally choose the easy one”

    some English tips:

    to balance – to trade off between

    posting my email – publishing my email

    the easy one – the easier one

  2. Staging hype with poor English.

  3. Poor English.

  4. Two points:

    1. You may want to change 2003 to 2005 in the signature to keep your copyright date current.

    2. Your email address and other contact info are easily accessible at this page:

    http://www.wangjianshuo.com/personal/me/contact.htm. You may wish to remove some info there as well…

    Of course, there is no way to keep up with all the emails on a site as popular as yours! Hopefully, you would still eventually get to my email about working at eBay or a short “hello” response would be appreciated! :)

  5. @bob,

    if you are native speaker, please be tolerance. Among those haven’t been living abroad, Jian Shuo Wang has the best English I have ever seen, both oral, listen and written. Please be patient and nice.

    if you are not a native english speaker, say for example, you are a Chinese in states or somewhere abroad, please just be nice and respectful.

  6. To trade off between? Never heard of this saying.

    WJS, don’t worry too much about the English. As long as you make the point across, and you do, you’re doing fine.

  7. “To trade off between? Never heard of this saying.”

    well, thats fun. google the prase of “trade off between” or get a dictionary.

    “Jian Shuo Wang has the best English I have ever seen, both oral, listen and written.”

    ridiculous. and you too baby. “both oral, listen and written”. one short sentence pops up bunchs of common solecisms.

  9. blahblahblah…

  10. Cant u guys see that I am trying to protect him? from happening to be one another American Idol dear Mr William Hung, my favorite, oh god jesus. I cant afford this. be cool man, be coooool

  11. hey, jianshuo, can I ask how many emails do you have? like one for work, one for family, one for blog…..something like that. All of them are hotmail?

  12. I am a teacher of English and I have seen many students make mistakes and I don’t think it is a good idea to say something like that. If you want to read perfect English, go somewhere else. English is just a language, that is all. Yeah people in China don’t use your pet words or phrases, but we manage to communicate our ideas to a large audience. Jianshuo, don’t be discouraged by what this person said. If people who come here know the purpose of Jianshuo’s blogging, they shouldn’t say something rude like that.

  13. So bob, you learned “to trade off between” from google? Nice. I bet u can get a BS in english from there too.

    Before your next post, make sure u run it thru google, just so u can be sure it’s grammatically sound.

    what a loser.

    I hope we don’t see flaming argument on this board. Please see my comment at http://home.wangjianshuo.com/archives/20050920_not_perfect_english_is_fine_so_does_correction.htm

  18. @bob,

    We are talking about Jian Shuo Wang’s English skill, not mine.

    Don’t be that picky. Don’t be that offensive. Don’t be that childlike.

  19. Plus, bob, go ahead to challenge my “don’t be”. Do as you like.
