Some time before the Christmas break three years ago, me and a couple of co-workers met up in the Yahoo! cafeteria and talked about possible side projects that everyone was working on. “I’m thinking about starting a multi-person blog about Asian stuff. Wanna join?” And that, more or less, is how 8Asians was born.
Fast forward a couple of years, and along with that whole “baby Jesus being born” thing, this blog is also three years old today! It’s been an amazing ride with some fascinating conversations about issues that affect you as an Asian American/Canadian. In a couple of days we’ll be asking for feedback — what you like about the site, what you don’t — as well as another official call for bloggers. But until then, Merry Christmas from the bloggers here at 8Asians to you. And if you don’t celebrate Christmas, well, have a lovely extended weekend.
