Write again

It’s been a long time to write a blog, especially using English.

There are so many interesting things every day. I hope writing a blog can help my bad memory.  The main language will be English, but Chinese is also alternative.

Building a blog by WordPress becomes such an easy thing now. I took nearly 1 hour to find a suitable and affordable domain, but installing WordPress just used less than 10 mins. It’s very impressive.

This is will be a two-year project. I’ll try to update at least one blog every week.
See ya!
