Central Asia needs more bloggers: write for neweurasia!
Cross-regional and Blogosphere, CyberChaikhana7 Comments
Central Asia is confronted by monster challenges and simmering crises, but it also has rambunctious and lively societies brimming with potential. Since our start in 2005, neweurasia‘s bloggers have been bearing witness to the region’s struggles with intelligence, insight, and healthy doses of sarcasm.
We are looking for bright young minds (or even old cynical ones) to write commentary and analysis, report breaking news, make webcasts, and post photo-essays. We offer financial compensation on a pay-per-post basis, as well as on a formula basis for special coverage (“blogging assignments”).
We especially need people who can think out of the box and rejuvenate the state of citizen journalism in the region. Let’s face it: Central Asia doesn’t need any more bloggers talking about how much this or that government sucks.*
Instead, the region needs bloggers who are willing to talk about everyday life things like sports, cuisine, shopping and fashion, the nuances that make living in Central Asia so special, and even the strange things your neighbors do at odd hours in the early morning. :-o
We need people who live and breathe Central Asia and blogging.
