  1. Learning Chinese online is really helpful! In the line 伴着月儿放光华, what does the 儿 mean? Is it just added to the lyrics as a sound to help the line fit the melody, or do people actually call the moon 月儿?

  2. Yeah, Learning Chinese online is great! 月亮 is often called 月儿 by children. 儿 is a basic Chinese word that is often used in Chinese songs and spoken conversation. When used as a suffix, it usually means “small/tiny.”

  3. To my Knowledge, Your Question is incomplete. If you want to make a weblog host. You have to tell the approximate blogs. If you plan to a bigger blog site you can’t limit blogs. so you require unlimited Room and Bandwidth. Social is just the exact same. If you are unsure just begin with 1 or 2 Tb and then you can upgrade your hosting according to your profit and quantity of blogs.
