Blogger Isn't Responsible

for Blog*Spot being blocked by the Chinese Government.
I'm afraid this problem comes from the Chinese government - it blocks all Blog*Spot pages from being shown within the country. If you'd like to purchase a hosting service from another company, though, you'll be able to continue publishing through Blogger and you'll be able to see your blog. Sorry about this, but unfortunately, there's not much we can do about it.

From God's mouth, to your ears, folks. End of story.

I have Chinese friends who visit my blog so I checked Google on Chinese blocking Blogspot. The bulletin is dated March 2004. I know my friends have been to the blog in the last 3 months. So either the blocking is no longer in force or they have found ways around it. I'll email and check with them.

Thanks, Steve.

We'd appreciate any updates that you can provide. Maybe your friends know a good way around the block, and letting other Chinese know what we find out is a service that we can provide.

OK, Chuck, it's taken a while to hear back from my China contact.

He was blocked from my site the last month. Here's what he wrote:

"I couldn’t get on your blog for over a month, and I didn’t spare time to email you about that. I searched about that on the web and find some webs which offer Proxy Sever, by which I get on your blog at last. So the block really exists. The www-dot-wikipedia-dot-com has been blocked. And there are many comments on the internet about the block.
I don’t understand who want to know whether I do something special, and I am ok. We will talk more about that."

I think this is the proxy server he used:

MyJobNet.info

I think that should be enough, but it takes you to:

Hope that helps.

What Is "ghs.google.com" vs. "ghs.googlehosted.com"?

With Google Domains registered custom domains becoming more normal, we are seeing one odd attention to detail, expressed as confusion in Blogger Help Forum: Learn More About Blogger.My website uses "ghs.google.com" - am I supposed to use "ghs.googlehosted.com", instead?It's good to be attentive to detail, particularly with custom domain publishing. This is one detail that may not require immediate attention, however.
