Blogs in China
By MortazaviBlog on Mar 06, 2006
Blogs are becoming popular in China, reports David Barboza of The New York Times. (IHT has republished Barboza's article.)
Of the current count of 30 million blogs in the world, 2 million come to us from China. Sina.com, a portal, hosts some of the most popular blogs, including the one by Xu Jinglei, which has received more than 11 million visitors. ("The only thing I'm concerned is to be a good writer. How to develop an economic model for the blog? I will leave such a confusing question to my colleagues and the I.T. elite," writes Jinglei.)
The issue of profiting from one's blog is coming up fast, Barboza reports.
