Frequently Asked Questions
Are you the only person who writes for this blog? Can I blog for Reappropriate?
Currently, Reappropriate remains a personal blog where I create the vast majority of the writing. However, as this site becomes more widely read, I feel motivated to share this platform with emerging AANHPI writers. As such, I invite guest submissions to the blog.
Accepted pieces receive minimal (mostly stylistic) editing from me prior to publication. Publication of a guest piece does not necessarily mean that I endorse or condone the contents of that writing.
Are you on Facebook or Twitter? Can I follow you / add you as a friend?
You can follow me on Twitter at @reappropriate or like my facebook page at facebook.com/reappropriate.co . The purpose of these accounts is to notify folks of new blog posts, and for me to post things that I don’t have time to write extensively about.
You claim your blog has been around since December 2001, yet your archives only go back to September 2009. what gives?
Reappropriate was originally hosted at a .com domain, but unfortunately due to a mix-up with billing for my domain registration, I lost the domain (and eight years’ worth of archived posts) in September 2009.
