Blogger matters: On ‘All Chinese Are Blogging’ – CRI
From CRI, via China Daily:
“Blogger Matters” focuses on one Chinese blogger per feature, putting his/her posts in English for you and aiming to give you a heads up on what’s going on in the Chinese blog-sphere.
Like many other literary men, Leizi (see sidenote 1) likes to read Sanlian Life Week (see sidenote 2). The reason is simple: he “believes those writers out there”.
But the cover story of the last issue of Sanlian Life Week seems to annoy him. The article, titled “All Chinese Are Blogging” (“Quan Min Bo Ke”), states that most Chinese write blogs because of their loneliness and the strong desire to be recognized by others. It blames the currently very hot blog competitions, “targeting directly to commercial websites like Sina”, according to Leizi.
