The first thing I noticed on entering this site was how attractive and easy on the eye the colours are. Yan Jun, the author, mentions that she has changed the layout over eight times, but I’d say that this one is a keeper. The site is clean and simple to navigate, with links allowing you to see all the past layouts, which I thought was a nice touch.
The weblog is mostly about Yan Jun’s everyday life. Her entries have been sporadic recently due a month long ban on the internet, imposed by her parents. Yan Jun writes about being grounded, skipping school and the dangers of high heeled shoes, but it’s all very readable and gives an interesting perspective on life. It will remind you of the frustrations of being a fourteen-year-old.
The about me section is pretty thorough and gives you a good idea of the girl behind the blog. There are only twelve posts so far, although I am sure that more will follow once Yan Jun’s internet ban has been lifted.
If you are looking for something more than just personal accounts then this probably isn’t the site for you. Most of the links on the page are to Yan Jun’s friends’ sites and the weblog seems to be used as a good way to update them on her life. illusions….
