Not just Facebook and Twitter

Blogspot and YouTube are also blocked in China.

For the former, it means I can’t read my favourite blogs while in China.

For the latter, it means I can’t upload any of my videos to my YouTube account until I get home.

For my friends who are blogging on blogspot, you might want to consider moving to either wordpress.com or typepad.com, both free like blogspot, but both not blocked in China (for now, anyway).

For what it’s worth, Seth Godin blogs on typepad, too.

Aiks … Google Docs is (are?) also blocked in China. And while I can read from within Google Reader, I can’t link out to the respective websites – that’s blocked, too.

Good thing Google Translate’s working – that’s my lifeline to online Chinese – English (and vice versa) translations.
