The number of blog sites in China reached 34 mln last month, a 30x increase from 2002, state media said on Tuesday, despite a series of curbs on media and dissent. China has more than 17 mln people writing blogs and more than 75 mln people reading them. Out of the 34 mln blog sites, 70% were “dormant”, Xinhua reports.
