Here are step by step instructions on how to register on the Chinese Baidu (百度空间) free blogging service. Please note that the Baidu search engine itself is not indexing these blogs for some reason, although Google is!

Despite the service not being available in English, it’s possible to register and use  without any Chinese language skills and the help of Google Translator. So don’t worry,  the Baidu interface is very easy to use and most of the link URLs are in English which helps a lot.

Next you should at least set a name for your blog. Or otherwise they will call you a hobbit or something. The bigger box is for the description of your new site. Btw. adding a bit of Chinese might be a good idea.
