Sorry for not writing a blog for so long. Until today we didn’t know anyone was reading it because we couldn’t see the comments until today. My little brother, Add, solved the problem, so now I feel confident that people are actually reading it. I can be quite a baby sometimes. It’s ironic that my not writing lately was directly related to my last post on being lazy. I had no motivation to write because I thought if no one would read it than I am just wasting my time writing. So I would procrastinate writing and watch TV instead. (Notice I’m using some of the new words from the podcasts to give you a clearer idea of how to use them). If I knew more people were reading the blog already, I would have certainly been writing. Anyway, now you know a little more about me. Ha ha. I get motivated by more comments and more users. So don’t be shy and I’ll start working harder.
Ok. Enough about that. I just want to give everyone an idea of our future plans for www.china232.com. Please understand that we are new at web design so new things sometimes take us some time to figure out how to do them. We’ve never learned anything at all about web design in school so we are trying to teach ourselves from books. Actually, Add does almost all the work on the website. I’m the older brother so I guess I can be a little bossy and get him to do too much work. (sorry Add).
Anyway, we are going to have a forum coming out soon so that we can all communicate with each other about many different topics. We’re going to be blogging more as well and share some funny stories about our personal lives. We’ll put some pictures up too. The users of this website are from all over the world and we’ve all had incredibly different lives. I hope that we can share our different experiences and ideas. One of the best ways to improve at a language is to practice debating. Explaining your opinion to someone else who at first disagrees with you is frustrating in another language. If you can do it well and get them to understand you clearly, then you know you are at a high level. We are thinking of starting to make some videos as well soon. We don’t have a video camera yet but we will hopefully be getting one soon. Let us know if you are interested in seeing videos of us.
Oh ya, and please tell us where you are from when you write in. I just want to thank everyone for using this website and writing to us. On our homepage there is a link to tell a friend about our website. It’s really easy to do and would help us so much. If you have a chance to comment about this website on any blogs, forums, or websites in your country, that would really help so much. We really love making this free website for you and we hope to continue to improve it. Please help us to get more people here and you will soon see it getting better faster. Thanks again everyone! I hope to hear from you.
