Global Voices Online needs your help as a european blogger

If any of you is interested, I would do it with pleasure if I was not so busy, Rebecca MacKinnon says:

Global Voices Online is looking for European “bridge-bloggers.”

What is a bridge-blogger? Somebody who acts as a “bridge” between their blogging community and the rest of the world. Lots of blogospheres are springing up around the world, in lots of languages, but many of them don’t communicate with each other, which is too bad. We’d like to help change that. For examples of bridge-blogging, here’s a post I did summarizing Chinese blogs: http://cyber.law.harvard.edu/globalvoices/?p=273

Here’s one on Mexican blogs, bridging between Spanish and English:http://cyber.law.harvard.edu/globalvoices/?p=254

And here is some bridge-blogging about the Kenyan and Kiswahili blogospheres:


If you’re interested in bridge-blogging from your country’s blogosphere to the outside world, we’d love to know. The best way to start is by doing some bridge-blogging posts on your own blog (for example: write a post in English with links to the original posts about what the Polish blogosphere is buzzing about this week, or tell us what the German bloggers are saying about the latest vote, what the Portugese blogs are talking about lately, or what the Francophone blogosphere is currently reacting to). Once you’ve done this, please email us with the link at: globalvoices DOT dailylinks AT gmail DOT com, and we’ll be sure to point to it.

Then, after doing this a few times, if you like the response to your work and feel that this is something you have the time and energy to do regularly on the Global Voices site, please let us know at globalvoices DOT online AT gmail.com.”
