Website Update

I’ve added a few links to my website. They are all links to sites that I have mentioned on this blog previously. Here is list of what I added.

ChineseNames.org - This web site lets you look up your name and see how it is written in Chinese.

Hanzi Smatter - Dedicated to the misuse of Chinese characters.
