China: Blog service providers

uleewang at Non-violent Resistance blogs on Chinese blog service provider BlogBus’ new blog moving service:

“It's pretty obvious what this could mean to the domestic blogsphere. If you are not happy with your current BSP, you can move house with the least hassle — in a matter of 20 minutes and some clicks of the mouse, you can dump the sorry old home and start anew without losing your online identity. Right on, Blogbus!”

uleewang follows up with a comment, “[a]pparently I was over-optimistic about BlogBus's service, as people tend to be about a lot of things in China these days. Experimented with my own MSN Space a couple of times in the past week. Never worked. The exporting process seems to work fine in the beginning, with a window telling me ‘XX blog entries already exported.’ But somehow it always gets stuck at 59 blog entries.”
