I didn’t know much about Global Voices Online except what I read about Global Voices in Wikipedia and then on Janine Mendes-Franco’s blog Francomenz and I liked what I read. Janie Mendes-Franco has been a regular visitor to this blog is responsible for highlighting several of my blog posts on Global Voices Online. I thank her for it. The goal of Global Voices is worthy and it’s all about enabling and empowering a community of “bridgebloggers” who “can make a bridge between two languages, or two cultures.” It’s about amplifying blog voices and defending free speech online. Global Voices Online understands the power of the blog and blogs should never be underestimated.
I donated to Global Voices Online, not because I wanted the badge you see above but because blogs are the new press and collectively, bloggers can make a positive difference to the World in ways that were never possible before. I am not sure if my blog can make a difference but I am willing to keep trying.
