BLOGman must save the day~!

I've heard that the Great Firewall has unblocked blogspot blogs, but I'm not sure if it's true. Some people in China say that they can access blogspot blogs in certain areas, so maybe they're gradually unblocking it.

Blogcn? Seems ok.

Till now, I didn't hear any other blog service provider in China was ordered to shut down.

You know, most of them(except blogbus.com) review bloggers content and kill those senstive posts immediately when they found. Actually, they are acting as the first layer survillence on behalf of government.

they are shuted down by gov suddenly.
