We're Taking a Summer Break
(paid subscriptions will be paused for a few months)
Hi all, we’re taking a few months off this summer.
Paid subscriptions on Chaoyang Trap will be paused while we’re away.
It’s been an exhausting couple of months for the Chaoyang Trap group. Some of us are (still) in lockdown, some of us are on the 润, others figuring out major life changes or scary new circumstances.
We’ve been thinking about direction, about where this newsletter is going, and we don’t have good answers yet to the why and how of writing about the Chinese web in *this* moment. We haven’t had the time or space to talk it through between ourselves, and we don’t want to barrel forward just to keep the content gods happy.
And so, a break. There’ll be a Review drop soon, a special collab on Chinese comics and then…well, we’ll see. We’d love to organize an IRL event outside China (ChaoyangCon 2022!), and we’d love to hear from you all about what you’d like to see.
Our emails/DMs remain open.
Until then, take care of each other, be excellent, and send a heart emoji to your favourite group chat. ❤️
