Between Aug 1 and Aug 8 this site recorded only 9 unique visitors from mainland China (officially), all out of Beijing and Shanghai, except one from Xiamen, Fujian.
From Aug 9 to Aug 16 there were 107 unique visits, a 12-fold increase despite light blogging. Visits originated from Beijing, Shanghai, Chongqing, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Dongguan, Yancheng(JS), Changzhou, Wuxi, Xiamen, Ningbo, Hangzhou, Urumqi, Chengdu, Changsha, and other cities (for which google analytic was notr able to name) in Shanxi, Hunan, Shandong.
In the last 5 days (Aug 17-22), visits from mainland China have surged to the 3rd place (after US, HK), adding locations such as Wuhan, Tianjin, Foshan, etc. Based on IP log mainland China has ranked outside of the top 20 countries for this blog.
It seems blogspot has been unblocked in China since Aug 9th, and that more and more provinces are unblocking. Let's hope it will not dissappoint us this time.
