If you look here, there are many China blogs out there and the list is only growing. Occassionally, I will browse china.alltop.com to get a sense of what the English language “China” blogs are buzzing about. Recently, I came across this comment on reddit.com:
For true Chinese perspective, not western expat hacks:
The feeling I get from reading the English language “China” blogs are that they are mostly written by Western expats.
This comment resonated with me. A lot of the English language “China” blogs are extension of the typical Western media narrative.
Of course, there are great blogs like the China Law Blog which offers a generally honest and on the grounds view of business law in China. It is rare to find something of that caliber. (Updated February 26, 2011: After seeing personal attacks against Shaun Rein with some of the unsavory characters from the China blogsphere, let’s say I am very disappointed with the China Law Blog. See comments here.)
We’d like to beef up our blogroll. What “China” blogs do you follow and what makes you think they are “great?”
