My 7 Links Project

My friend Carrie Kellenberger has been promoting a 6 links meme. First you write down posts that you liked from your own blog, for various reasons. Then you link to six blogs you enjoy. I have decided to up six, giving a couple of honorary mentions.


1. My Most Beautiful Post
I'm a lazy photographer. That is why I often post without putting up a picture. I like this old Spanish canon though. I took the shot earlier this year in Manila: http://patrick-cowsill.blogspot.com/2011/01/imagine-taiwan-without-philippines.html



2. My Most Popular Post
My first post on out-group members being discriminated against in Taiwan when applying for a credit card was fairly popular. A lot of people have asked me about this: http://patrick-cowsill.blogspot.com/2009/11/foreigners-getting-credit-card-in.html


3. My Most Controversial Post
Whenever I do a post about the Japanese colonial era in Taiwan, I get a fair deal of negative feedback. From my posts, I have come to understand there are still people out there who do not want to consider that Japan may have helped to bring Taiwan stability, infrastructure and, on the whole, a better way of life. Here's my latest Japanese colonial era post: http://patrick-cowsill.blogspot.com/2011/05/mixing-up-taipeis-history.html



4. My Most Helpful Post
I'm going with the credit card one again: http://patrick-cowsill.blogspot.com/2009/11/foreigners-getting-credit-card-in.html


5. A Post Whose Success Surprised Me
And I thought mei-ban fa (沒辦法) only bugged me / that I was the only one whingeing about it. I was wrong: http://patrick-cowsill.blogspot.com/2010/12/do-consumers-need-to-accept-mei-ban-fa.html


6. A Post I Feel Didn't Get the Attention It Deserved
I care about the Taiwanese soldiers from World War II who got screwed by the KMT. So did Hsu Chao-jung (許昭榮). He felt so passionate about this topic that he committed suicide after he wrote about this process in 動盪時代的無奈 台籍老兵血淚故事. To the best of my knowledge, Hsu's account still is not available in English: http://patrick-cowsill.blogspot.com/2010/03/hsu-chao-jungs-lost-soldiers.html


7. The Post I Am Most Proud Of
I don't know. If I thought it was a crappy post, I wouldn't post it. I stand by all of my posts. 


*****
Here are seven bloggers that I read regularly, in no particular order. I've chosen Taiwan-based blogs:
