Looking for info: blogging in Asia and Australia


Sitting down tonight (I know) to work on some slides for a presentation I am doing in Australia to an audience of Asians and Australians about blogging. Well, I know enough about blogging in the US to get by, but I don’t know much about how it’s different in Asia/Australia. I’m probably just looking for a high level overview and some anecdotes. Can anyone point me to a study or blog post about this?


I figured that one of you well-read folks would know. Did I also mention that you are all intelligent and extremely good-looking? 🙂


Help?

    I’d talk to him:

    He’s a blogging machine, and you have the same employer.

  2. For a perspective on blogging and recruiting in China, you may want to talk to Frank Mulligan.   http://english.talent-software.com/

    Brainmates have been blogging in OZ for a few years with their Brainrants. I have met several of their team and they seem to have a good pulse on what is happening in the region.
