I wrote a piece for CRI some months ago that was basically a filler piece about Beijing vs. Shanghai vs. Hong Kong. I interviewed like one guy (who likes talking) who'd lived in all three cities. And my great aunt. It was imo, the worst piece of writing I've ever done for CRI. Like super inadequately researched and far far far from comprehensive. Mostly just my fluff opinions.
By the time i finished it, i really thought it was a piece of shit.
I was informed this morning that it's pbly the most popular piece i've written for CRI getting thousands of hits every month.
I just don't know what to think about this.
