When researching the host site for blogs, I looked into the issue of being blocked, and found that WordPress.org was allowed in most places! It even has a Chinese version of the site, so I’m like “Sweet! I can use it in China.”. Then, once arriving in Shanghai, I fired up my laptop with a bunch of things I wanted to write about, just to find that….. http://www.WordPress.COM is blocked. W T F?
For those of you who don’t know, WordPress.com is the watered-down version of WordPress.ORG. That’s like, letting your 7year old play with guns but not allowing it to read Harry Potter.
I figured a way out, and got mobile internet! You know that feeling, when your internet is down and you get highly irritated even though once your internet recovers, you don’t use it anyways? Thats how it was for me…… for 5 days….
