Every so often I get a scathing comment from an anonymous commenter on how we intentionally ignore such and such blog because we don’t want “the competition.”  That is completely untrue.  We ignore the blogs mentioned because we do not think they have much to say.

But there is one site about which I plead guilty for not having flogged enough here out of a subconscious fear of losing readers once we do so. The site is Sinocism and it is so over the top comprehensive and frequent that if you are going to read just one thing on China each day, you ought to at least consider making Sinocism  (a/k/a Sinocism’s China Newsletter) that one thing.

I was reminded of this the other day by a Sinosplice post noting the following:

Even so, I’ve come to recognize what a valuable resource Bill Bishop’s Sinocism is. You can sign up for the newsletter and get regular updates on all major issues facing China. I know more than one information junkie that reads every link in the newsletter, but for me, the headlines and blurbs are often enough. I click through when the articles especially interest me (and learn important new Chinese buzzwords from time to time too).

If you’re interested in China and you’re one of the few that haven’t heard of Sinocism, definitely check it out. Bill Bishop is also on Twitter (@Niubi) and the excellent podcast Sinica.

Sinocism’s tagline is “Be Informed about China” and if wish to be informed about any aspect of China, I recommend you check it out  But please don’t forget to come back here after doing so. Please!

  • I agree. I use Sinocism to cut hours off of my reading to stay current on China. Please sign up for a subscription so Bill does not give up on this venture.
