Blogger is a free blogging platform where you can use blogs to share interesting and meaningful things about your life with your friends and family, give your own advice column, discuss your political views, or relating your experience in a topic of interest. It was bought by Google in 2003 and became Google’s hosted blogging platform. It has more and more users all over the world as it is useful and free. Lots of users choose it to publish blogs. However, Blogger is not available in China. That means you can’t use Blogger in China no matter which country you are from. It is because the Great Firewall of China blocks Google and its affiliated websites and services. Once your China-based IP is detected, your connect to those websites and service will be blocked. The Chinese government censorship is very strict and the national firewall is pretty powerful.
Is there a way to bypass the censorship and overcome the national firewall? Yes. You can unblock Blogger in China with the help of a VPN. You can’t access Blogger in China because of your Chinese IP. What you need is a new IP of other countries where Blogger is available. Where can you get a new VPN? The VPN servers provide IPs of many countries and you can select any local server you prefer. VPN works on Android, Window, Linux and IOS devices.
What is a VPN?
VPN stands for Virtual Private Network. It creates an encrypted and secure connection between you and the website you are visiting. The VPN server plays the role of a middleman between you and the website that you are visiting. Given that the network traffic between you and websites is encrypted like a tunnel, the ISP will have no idea of your traffic emerges without signs of who you are or where you’re connecting from. The VPN server provides new IPs to replace your real IP. In this way, your connection will not be blocked for Chinese IPs. You can access Blogger freely in China.

In order to let you know the functions of VPN, let’s talk about how it works in detail. You run VPN and click on link you want to visit. The browser sends encrypted your account & password and request to your VPN service first. Then, VPN service decrypts the communication and sends it to the targeted website. After the website receives data, it generates session cookie and send it to your VPN service. VPN encrypts the session data it received and then sends it back to your device. In this way, you can view the website you like after your browser received the session cookie.

Problems that you may meet while using VPN service
Problem 1: I can connection VPN service via 4G mobile data on my phone, but I can’t connect it via WiFi hotspot? I saw WIFi signal bar there while it still used my mobile data.
The problem may be that WiFi hotspot sets limits on VPN connection. NAT of VPN, namely PPTP/L2TP has been limited. WiFi hotspot refuses to transfer your data to the VPN service.
Problem 2: I failed to visit some regular websites after I turned off VPN. I could access those websites before I first used VPN. I am a Chinese user and I use VPN service to access Dropbox, Vimeo, Facebook, Twitter and watch Youtube. Now, I can’t visit my favorite Chinese websites in a normal way. I have to run VPN so that I can access them.
Firstly, there may be something wrong with your routing tables. Check your default route and VPN gateway.
Secondly, your DNS may have been hijacked. Check your DNS and scan your computer for malicious programs
Thirdly, it may be the mechanism network problem or Internet proxy. Check your Internet settings.
Fourthly, it may be caused by non-normal exit. Next time, remember quit it in a normal way.
Problem 3: I can’t access local area network after I connect to VPN.
It may be caused by IP address conflict. Check your network line and correct the settings. Find your original gateway address via command.
Problems 4: Why I have blue screen after I run VPN?
Probably, your drive is not compatible with the VPN service you use. Besides, some anti-virus programs, game protection drive and bank security controls will bring blue screen when you use VPN.
