China blogging leaps 30-fold in four years

CNET "The number of blog sites in China reached 34 million last month, a 30-fold increase from four years ago, state media said on Tuesday, despite a series of curbs on media and dissent.
China has more than 17 million people writing blogs and more than 75 million people reading them, Xinhua news agency said.
Authors of personal blogs choose their own subject and can instantly forward their writings to friends anywhere in China or the world.
'The rapid growth of blog sites in China also brought potential business opportunities to the advertising industry,' Xinhua said. 'Some blogs written by famous people attract millions of daily readers.' "
