Q: What's the best blog site to write from China?

Turns out I'll be returning to China sooner than expected! This time around I want to keep a day to day blog of my travels for the friends back home, but I haven't got a clue which blog sites work from China. 

 

Anyone have some tips on what the best sites are to write from China?

If you can read Chinese, then Sina might be a good choice.  But the big western blog sites tend to get blocked every now and then.  So if you don't have a good VPN, that can be a problem when it comes to you updating your blog.
A decent option might be for you to get your own domain & blog site.  A domain name costs around $10-15 per year and a website costs around $6-10 per month.  Personally, I always consider this the best option for flexibility.

If you want a platform that isn't subject to being blocked and unblocked regularly then Sina is your best bet, even though I think it's probably the clunkiest and glitchy blogging site out there. If you've got a VPN then hit up wordpress if you want a more professional look. You could try Blogger but since it's owned by Google it's almost always blocked. Buying a domain didn't keep my wordpress site from being blocked so...yeah. Just get yourself a decent VPN and save yourself the headache from dealing with Sina.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
