Shanghai Mama and Papa Blogs Directory

Hi everyone!   kmbus


I’m Kellie and I’m the Web Content Committee Chair

At the moment, you’ll see a listing titled Mamas Personal Blogs in the top box on the right hand side of this page. These are all blogs that are written by our ShanghaiMamas members, but are hosted on other sites (WordPress, Blogspot, tumblr, etc.) This means that for some of them, you will need to use a VPN to access them if you’re already in China – I have marked these with a * for convenience. If you do run into one that is not working, please let me know at

Some of the ones toward the bottom of the list are no longer active, either because the people who kept them have repatriated and so have ‘closed that chapter’ of their lives, or just because, like, life and stuff, whatever, they just haven’t managed to keep it going. However I’ve left them up because I know that many people who come to ShanghaiMamas, especially if they haven’t moved here yet, enjoy reading other people’s blogs to get a sense of what it might be like when they do, and these can be really informative and also just a good fun read.

The lower right-hand box contains links to some blogs that are hosted here on this site, but they are older and no longer active. This is the next phase of redevelopment of this section, and I’ll be working with other members of the content committee to get that happening as soon as possible.

Bear with us – everything is a work in progress!
