New additions

This week, I’ve updated the data on the site. Many characters now have added information. In fact, there is now etymological and mnemonic information for all of the top 1000 characters.

The first real blog post

Thursday, July 12th, 2007

Greetings, site visitors,

You may have wondered why there are so many “posts” on this weblog. I’m using WordPress’s ability to keep track of comments, so I can add an interactive element to each page of the site.

Please take a moment to look around. Try going to the radical index and clicking a heading. Then click on one of the characters. You’ll be presented with a “character information” page. Find simplified, traditional, and ancient forms of the character. See Mandarin pronunciations and English definitions. For some characters, etymological information is given, showing how the character developed and giving a useful mnemonic to help you remember it.

Notice the tabs at the top. They give you more information about the character, as well as an opportunity to post your own comments.

Speaking of comments, we love feedback. What do you think of this site?
