Welcome to Beijing Lives

A new blog that describes itself as follows:

We are a multinational team of people (Chinese, American and Canadian and hopefully more soon…), working together to build the best website available about life in Beijing. We aim to have accurate and (relatively) complete listings of bars/clubs/music/restaurants/art/fashion community/health/real estate and more.
We also hope to be a showcase for the many amazing talents that exist in this city. If you are a musician/artist/model/film maker/web designer/dancer/singer or some other unique talent, we would love to work with you and show your talents to the world. Let us know if you would like to join the team!

One of the site’s founders, Steve, was kind enough to join our blogger dinner in Beijing last month. Be sure to check out this ambitious new site.

The Discussion: 3 Comments

It’s always good to see new additions to the China-related blog world. This Beijing Lives looks promising, especially if it’s going to be sort of Beijing portal with multiple contributors taking in both Beijing living and China news and views.

I think a couple of sites have tried to this before but I don’t think that they are around anymore.

Anyway, good luck Steve and the rest of the crew. I hope you keep us informed about any new and exciting posts via TPD open threads.

The page loading of this website is slow.

Great thanks to both Richard and Martyn for your kind words. I agree, our goals are on the ambitious side. But we all look forward to the challenge!

Soon you will start to hear other voices than those of me and editor Rene. We hope to bring people of many nations and perspectives on to write for the site.

And Lin, thank you for pointing out the slow page loading. We have purchased space on a fairly powerful server, but it still seems slow at times. It is on our (lengthy) list of improvements. Please send me an email (steve-at-beijinglives.com) if this is still a problem in a few weeks.
