Thought By Scott is a group of WordPress sites that each deal with one of my interests. Currently, these include Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) and Toastmasters, but I will add other “sub-sites” as time permits.
Future plans include a site about all things Chinese. I have a lot of interest in Chinese culture and language and also have a different perspective on the way American news and the US government treats China. Many people think that I overlook China’s faults, but I really don’t. Instead, I try to fill in the large gap of positive things about China to counter all the negatives that the press inundates Americans with in their coverage. Indeed, a comparison of the two countries is rather enlightening.
I’m also interested in photography and gadgets, but there are enough sites that cover these that I probably won’t spend time I don’t have covering these for the few readers my reviews would get. I do get an awful lot of apps for Apple products (iMac, iPad, iPhone, etc.), so I may do a few comparison articles for different apps of the same type that I’ve gotten…time will tell.
In the meantime, I hope you enjoy the site. I also have links to blogs of my two trips to China, in October 2007 and October 2009:
There are a lot of pictures in these blogs, and enough stories that I hope people who may travel to or come from the areas I’ve been to will enjoy the coverage.
Thanks for visiting!
