    China has been known to block WordPress.com blogs, and there is nothing that we can do about this. As a workaround, you can try using a VPN or proxy to access the blog. The following links provide some options that you may be able to explore and/or use:

    We have also heard that some users have had luck simply by using Opera Turbo:

    I really hope this helps and you’ll find a way to access/update your blog!

    Thank you, I currently use a VPN to update on my laptop not on my iphone so I might have to install and use one on there. Thanks again.

    Have just seen this forum and relates to a query I have…

    I would like my wordpress blog (themindorchard.wordpress.com) to be accessible in China. That current domain name is blocked (like all wordpress sites) but I was wondering if I purchase the domain name ‘themindorchard.com’ (as has been offered to me on my dashboard for $18/year), whether it would then be accessible? (as the domain name no longer contains ‘wordpress’)

    If not, then do you have any other recommendations as to how I can map my current domain name (themindorchard.wordpress.com) so that it can be viewed in china?

    Thanks,
    Ollie
