Writing for China Daily Blog is an amazing experience, while sharing and reading people’s experiences. I was new in China when I started and I found the blog post as guiding, informative and full of interesting facts about China and Chinese people. I decided to write for China Daily blog after knowing about the contest and started sharing my personal experience in China as a student. I believe, I will keep writing for China Daily not only while in China but also after returning home. 

I requested few of Bloggers to share their opinion about writing for China Daily blog and they replied to me with very interesting answers. I selected these bloggers from my friend list randomly. Their replies are mentioned below with their names.
If you are not in the list, please share your opinion in the comment section.

Your question is interesting in that, everyone will have a personal and different reason for writing on CD, but there will also be so many similarities. One common feature will be that we all want to be heard, say our piece, say it without interruption, say it on a forum that provides the freedom and tolerance to take in an opinion, no matter how disagreeable it is. Another common feature will be our human need to communicate with each other, debate and argue with others from different nations. We enjoy this even if we don't come to an agreement. This is real human fun and a getting together of people from everywhere. This is what I expect will happen. Of course, there will be so many who just visit the blog, read, take it all in and not respond with even a word. They too are part of the group and just as welcome! I enjoy this forum and it a window to the world from my home, my busy life raising kids and a personal hobby. I will follow your blog closely and wish you all the best.

Actually, i write blog in  china daily for sharing WARM between us. it is being a house for foreigners to sharing our knowings, knowledge, creativity and self satisfaction as well. i learn something new and develop something new myself. the response from Blog family makes me to create something for all though i am not perfect in writings. my guardian, brothers, sisters, and blog relatives encourage me, that is the something which i get in response. 

 In my case I am in Chins teaching foreigners about aspects of China, especially Chinese Economy, Business Culture and  comparisons with the West. So it I may be of interest for other foreigners, especially recently arrived to share and for Chinese readers to share their views. I also have a lot of experience with English for Asian nationalities. To me a good post is one that engages other readers in conversation through comments. I am inspired by Chinese readers who are English improves who have the courage to post and to ask for advice. I hope to have the time to respond to such posts!

To be honest,  i don't know Chinadaily has a forum until i see a notice about blogging contest. There are two main reasons for why i write here, first one is that i don't want to lose my ability of English.After i graduated from university, the people around me never speak Ennglish. i am afraid that one day English is far away from me. the second one is that i want to make more friends, especially those native-english speaker. i can absorb some new thoughts which can be totally different from chinese mode of thinking. i think different culture has different shining points. i am glad to know more culture, show my world to all the people from every corner and being friends with them.

I think that is the China Daily Forum provided me a pleasant platform for me to play with blogging and make friends with others.
In China, this is the best location---to my understanding---for English bloggers, not only keep writing can challenge a blogger's personal limits, but also make a writing-lover's thought and view-point exposing  to a bigger "world", to me, this a process of learn more from others and  correct my wrong or narrow minded conception in observing work and life.
In comparison with other mainstream English websites, I found that this Forum has much more openness and full of energy, at the same time I think the potential has not been tapped fully up to now. 
China Daily is a window for the world to know more about China, and let the Chinese people know more about the world more closely, right?
Not everyone people has the oppotunity or time or energy to journey to visit his/her long dreamed land, but how about language exchange? Language can function as the "Ambassadors" to narrow the gap, to bridge the sounth and north.

Why do I write? I write because I love reading the other stories here, and I love contributing to those who contribute to my life. I just hope I give people as interesting a read as they give me.

As a matter of fact, I knew the china daily blog for the first time because of the blog contest. Although I am a college student majoring in English, I seldom write English blog. But I do read china daily newspaper. After registering an account of myself, I tried to write some blog in this website. It turned out to be very useful. So I carry out it on not only just for the contest, but for the improvement of myself. Besides, it is a good way to make new friends in this website with people from different countries. It is really amazing for me.

8. josee1016: 
I am an English major student. It is beneficial to express my opinions in English on Chinadaily which is the official  newspaper in our country. For example, I can make some new friends both from China and the other countries. Their opinions inspire me and enlight me a lot. Besides, my expressions or the writting skills can be improved by writing English passages. What's more, my viewpoints on some events or life attitude may have influence on some people who are pessimistic. And this is a win-win policy. Last , I like communicating with others especially in English and Chinadaily provides such a good platform. 

China daily is a wonderful platform where I can express my views in any aspects of my life,such as my study, my daily things, my family, my college, my happiness and unhappiness and so on. Although my English is not the best, sometimes I just want to give a vent to  my emotions and feelings in English.

i write here just by chance,but when i applied the account,i told myself that i should insist on it,in this way i can improve my  abilities,and learn more,learn from others at the big platform,sometimes when i looked back on the feed,it was a beautiful memory on my life,so,the main reason is that it can help me reserve happy things.

Honestly, at first I write for iPad Mini...hahaha...come on, who are you kidding? Most of us are here because of that. But after a while, I started to forget about the contest and simply enjoy the companion. China Daily is a great community for us, expats in China. We have a lot of people who were in the same boat (stuck in China, to be exact, LOL) and that's why it feels so great to be able to share our personal experiences in China and learn about China from others.

Claudeckenni should win the ipad for honesty alone :p

In all honesty though, I agree with him. I have never really been able to make friends online before but I have found the community here very friendly and welcoming (with a few exceptions)

If I had your creative ideas--such as this ones-- in research and investigation as well as persistance to find out an answer, which I were concerning  or interested in most,  no matter how difficulty the growing process it was in my college years and the rest succeeding time, then I think maybe the chairmanship of the UN would left me a  chance to vie for.

Before I found this site, I already have a blog full of writings about my experience in China. But sadly, nobody even read it, and that makes me lazy to write. But here is different. There a lot of feedbacks and also interesting articles everyday. I love this community, and of course, I won't refuse the iPad mini...hahaha

China daily was a news reading place for me I got it on my wechat, I actually read some of the expats articles through wechat now I accidently found some of them here! many interesting people, also I found my english writing is kind of lack of structure, as im not majoring in English I think it's not a bad way to practise my writing in English

go to bbs, you can usually find me hammering away at the nazi's. You will know who I am talking about. There's a debate going on right now about forcing xinjiang women to marry chinese....unbelievably sick. if it's not some racist comments they are spouting it's advocating nuclear war, or the other brilliant piece today that said you cannot call a Chinese person racist ever...even if they are. (you need to read the farce of an article to truly understand as I can't even explain their idiocy in words)

Nah, it's okay. There is no way I can compete with those social media celebrity who already got more than 1000 votes by now...LOL

As long as they decided the winner by voting, not by the quality of the blog, there is no way for us average blogger to win.
