Back to blogging

It’s been a month since I updated, and two months since I actually wrote anything substantial. I will make an attempt to get back into it a little bit. Please do keep coming back…

My friend/co-worker Steve who is moving to China said his mom checks my blog daily. Hi, Steve’s mom! I see my counter is still going up so I guess some people are still interested. Steve said that my blog was a reason some of his friends and relatives had a realistic view of what Shanghai is like. That was pretty much my purpose in blogging – to share some of my experiences with everyone back home.

The bad news is that my blog is blocked in China again. What a bummer. I hosted it on my own domain (emilyminor.com) instead of blogspot.com because blogspot used to be blocked. The only thing that I can think of is that I said “p r a y e r service” in a post about Jared. I can’t think of any other reason that the internet censors of China would find my blog suddenly a threat to the Chinese people. My whole domain is blocked so no one can get to www.emilyminor.com either.

  1. hi sweetie! Is the block on your site also the reason that I can’t see any of the pictures from your earlier stories? I’m curious about them!
    Looking forward to flat Stanley! Hugs from Holland and a big kiss for Jon ;)

  2. I’m able to access it without any problems so I think it was temporary and to be honest, “prayer service” would not be enough to get a site blocked, but sometimes I have had my own site blocked because of a blanket block on the service provider / host I was using and I had to switch hosts. So it might have been someone else causing the block.

    Good to see you back on your feet though.

  3. Inga – I was trying to use another method of uploading photos since blogger wasn’t working so well. The new method didn’t either, but I think I managed to fix everything now!

    WoAi – I tried to come up with any reason for my site to be blocked and that was as far as my imagination could stretch. The blanket block would make sense; maybe it was even just a problem with the provider? I don’t really care since it’s back up!
