Minor update: Milestones reached...

It's been a few crazy weeks where I've just been too tired/frustrated to blog but the outcome has been quite positive for us. We're now able to offer credit to our clients without worrying about the risk of default (at a pretty cheap price I might add), I am consolidating my interest in my company, we're buying a decent car, we're finally getting a real accounting system (at a ginormous price) and we're starting to make headway at the process of rebranding / revamping our image.

Now as for this blog, I've been kind of at a cross roads. I'm not going to stop but I'm just trying to figure out how I want to organize it going forwards. I've basically got two passions - politics/economics/development (I see these things as highly related), and business. The latter I've really not really had an opportunity (or rather taken the time) to develop here. It's being overwhelmed by the former as I have a lot more online material that I'm able to exploit (particularly after discovering google reader).

I think of blogging as a bit of a dialogue or even a monologue - but I think I have to focus a bit better. Given the relative size and growth of our business, the numerous political and legal changes that seem to be happening in China, not to mention the speed that it's happening, I feel that a dedicated blog may help in making me focus and flush out my ideas - even if I'm only talking to myself.

I guess it comes back to why I am blogging - and hopefully it's not just an exercise in vanity. Do I want to be seen as a China blogger? An entrepreneur in China? or simply that scary right wing (though I think of myself more as a libertarian) ideologue? Anyway, that's what I'm thinking. It's true what they say though, the older you get, the more you realize what you don't/didn't know. I tend to see the world in black and white, but doing business - particularly here, one seems to always be left with choosing between various shades of grey. I want to talk about that - I just have to figure out how. Anyway, 'till next I blog.

Keep up the good work.

I had seven blogs, I've cut back to one that covers most of what I want to say. It has been beneficial staying focused.
