There are a lot of blogging platforms in China, all of which are targeted at a Chinese speaking audience. For example, some famous ones are Sina, 163 and Baidu. You could say that blogging in China is a social experience, and the sites are very much integrated within the rest of the website architecture. Unlike many western blogging sites, where the experience is often more personal. And btw. forget about WordPress, these platforms can be pretty old school.
Btw. it varies if the links are dofollow or not, but in my experience most are do follow. For example while 163 is nofollow, Sina and Baidu are not.
For most sites, registration should be totally doable even without Chinese language skills. You just need Google Translator and some common sense. For example, a lot of the URL names are in English.
There are some sites that ask you for phone verification. Sometimes you can skip that step, and sometimes it can cause a problem if your not in China, or you don’t have a Chinese phone number.
As you may know, Some western blogging sites are blocked by The Great Firewall of China, namely WordPress and other bigger platforms. Check this list of blogs that work in China, for a comprehensive study on which sites are unblocked.
