About

Stuart HillIf you’ve just stumbled upon this blog  — then Welcome!

Thanks for spending the time to check things out. My name is Stuart Hill and I am the author of the content you see here, unless specified otherwise. Most of the photos included here I also took myself, again unless stated.

The banner on this blog was shot by the very talented documentary filmmaker S. Leo Chiang (http://sleochiang.com).

Note: I am happy for you to link to my blog, but if you want to re-use any of my blog content for commercial purposes, please post a comment and ask for permission; I’ll contact you.

This blog is now into its 5th year. You’ll find most stories about Taiwan.

The structure of the site works like this:

  • Home page: all articles listed chronologically and in full
  • Taiwan Travel: links to stories offering ideas about places you can visit in Taiwan
  • Taiwan Life: links to a mix of articles about things that might affect you while living in Taiwan
  • Taiwan Postcards: a number of photos from various times, that hopefully reveal some things about Taipei or Taiwan, but which haven’t become a full length story
  • Journal Entries: a list of article links based on various personal reflections and experiences, not necessarily about Taiwan
  • About: (what you are reading now)

When I first setup the blog, I decided on this list of links approach as a good way to organize the kinds of things I like to write about. Hopefully it will make your current access and return visits easier to find. Simply click on a link to jump to a specific story. It will save time instead of scrolling endlessly through my home page.

You can subscribe to my blog and receive a summary and link to my latest posts (see RECEIVE NEW STORIES in the right column). If you know of others who may like to read my articles, please send them a story link.

  1. Hello Stuart,

    I really like your content about living in Taiwan. I run a website called Tofu Daily: https://www.facebook.com/tofudaily

    You might’ve seen it a couple of weeks ago when the racist MRT incident happened as the post went viral on Facebook and Reddit. Some celebrities in Taiwan shared it as well.

    I have been trying to grow my site as well as get more content up on the site. Right now I am working hard on Essentials of TW: things like getting visa, work permit, ARC, renting a place, getting bank accounts..etc. I was looking around to see what others have done and stumbled upon your blog and really like your style and content. I wanted to just ask you for permission to use your content but I had a better idea:

    I want to use this opportunity to see if you are interested in guest blogging on Tofu Daily. It will allow me not to reinvent the wheel and let you promote yourself on it. We can discuss the details in person or on email. I can also share my plans and direction for Tofu Daily with you.

    Sincerely,

    Tofu Daily
