Global Voices

January 23, 2011

While looking for other blogs to post and share through mine I found a journalism organization that really intrigued me.  The site is globalvoicesonline.org and it consists of more than 300 bloggers around the  world “who work together to bring you reports from blogs and citizen media everywhere, with emphasis on voices that are not ordinarily heard in international mainstream media”.  There is a tab on the homepage titled countries which allows the user to select any country they desire to read a blog post from.  For example, there is a blog post titled Greece: Uproar over a plan to build border fence and expel migrants that also provides a link to the writer’s Asteris Masouras blog .  The site offers an English translation as well as to 54 other languages such as Spanish and Vietnamese.  The site itself is not visually astonishing, but it is easy to use in my opinion.  A user is able to search by topic such as Arts and Culture or Economics.  It is incredible to see what is happening around the world through other people’s eyes as opposed to our regular corporate media.
