Hi, there? I need your help. I can’t use Blogger since my first day in China. Everything was good while I was in United States. I am sure the Internet connection is no problem. I can use it to visit other websites fast. Every time I try to access it, it takes a long time to respond only an error page which says something like “This site can’t be reached www.blogger.com refused to connect…” This is really weird and annoying. I have to stay in China for more than two months, I can’t live without it. Please help me! Thanks a lot!
Blogger is a service that allows users to publish their blogs on the Internet. One of its wonderful features is that it permits muti-user blogs with time-stamped entries. Pyra Labs developed Blogger while Google acquired it in 2003. In general, the users’ blogs are hosted at blogspot.com by Google Company. But you can also have it hosted at a registered custom domain of the blogger. For one account, you are allowed to own about one hundred blogs. Compared with the WordPress.com platform, which allows users to use custom domains at costs about thirteen dollars; Blogger is much user-friendly in this aspect. You can use your own domain free of charges. But you need to apply DNS facilities to redirect a custom URL to a blogspot domain. Blogger can’t be used on a web server. Blogger is now available in tens of languages. The versions of such importantly used languages as English, Chinese (Hong Kong or Simplified), French, Portuguese, Russian, Japanese, Spanish etc. are all provided by the service. Blogger is also very user-friendly in designs. You are allowed to select your favorable templates and edit them. If you master CSS very well, you can create your own templates. You can also reach Blogger by using Google Toolbar, Microsoft Word, Microsoft Office 2007, AdSense, Amazon, Window Live Writer, Google+, etc. Because the Blogger tools are integrated in these services. There is no doubt that Blogger is one of the best platforms in the industry and many people all around the world are using this service. But when you try to use Blogger in China, you will find it completely blocked by the government. So, how to use Blogger in China?
Before introducing the method to unblock Blogger, it is necessary to know how it is blocked by the government. To know how the Blogger blocked in China, the GFW is an instrument you need to know about first. GFW, the abbreviation of Great Firewall of China, is a tool used by the Chinese government to block any websites or services that is regarded as unsecure. It is reported that more than 3,000 foreign websites are banned by the government with GFW. It is not only a technological but also legislative action that was initiated to safeguard the security and stability of the country. Apart from Blogger, many other services of the Google Company like Google Search, Gmail, etc. are all blocked with this tool. What is worse, such popular services as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram, Telegram, Dropbox, and so on are all included in the 3,000 blocked websites. Although the block is controversial, it is normal for a government to take any precautions to ensure the security and stability of the nation.
The technology many users are using to unblock Blogger in China is called Virtual Private Network, VPN in short. It is a technology that can bypass the GFW by replacing your original IP with a new one. With only one VPN, you can access all the websites blocked by the GFW.
The detail guide to use a VPN consists of three steps.

An email will be sent to you to confirm the account upon payment being completed. After confirming, the next step is to download and install the software onto your system.
Step 2: Download and install the VPN software. Usually, a link to download the software will be provided in the confirmation email. You may be presented with a list of software where software for different operating systems or devices are listed. Select the one for your systems to finish downloading. The installation is easy, just click through the procedures as prompted all the way to complete.
Step 3: Connect to a US-based server or other appropriate server location on VPN. When the software is ready, the left you need to do is to start the application and fill in your account detail and choose a proper location. You can select any server located in US. If you like, you can also choose other locations like Canada. It is all up to you. Now everything is done.
