Registering for a Sina Blog

  • I recommend using the Google Chrome Browser. Then right click on the page and click “Translate to English.” The translation is pretty good! Otherwise, You’ll have to work with the page in Chinese.

  • There are two options: Phone Registration or eMail. They are both pretty straightforward. The second tab is Email Registration and is fairly straightforward.  The boxes in order are Email Address, Password (6-16 characters), Interests (New, Entertainment, Culture, Sports, Technology, Finance, Fashion, Auto, Real Estate, Life), and Security Code.  That should register you, although you may have an activation email sent to your email.  The first tab (Phone Registration) is only slightly more involved.  The boxes in order are Phone Number, Password (6-16 characters), Interests (New, Entertainment, Culture, Sports, Technology, Finance, Fashion, Auto, Real Estate, Life). After entering that information, click the box that says “I want to use a registered mobile phone to send text messages” (我要使用注册手机发送短信).  Then text the phrase “yz” to the phone number 1069009010021.  Wait about 3 minutes and then click the green button.
