Abstract

In 2006, the China Daily reported over 150,000 foreigners legally working in China, with many more in-country long-term as frequent business travelers, students, spouses, etc. (Wang 2006). Among these over 500,000 long-term residents in China, there are many who write about their experiences in online blogs or similar Web sites.1 Motivations for these blogs diff er widely, and among the bloggers are language students wishing to share their knowledge of Chinese; lawyers working in China; journalists who want to write about stories they cannot publish with their employers; individuals or groups who vent their anger and frustration with life in China, etc.
