Clearly a great opening for anyone interested in journalism/media.
This post is a result of an email from Neha, the Global Voices Online South Asia editor about an opening/spot for a Sri Lankan “author”. Here’s how she described what’s involved:
Here’s what a volunteer would have to do –
Global Voices attempts to contextualize the conversations in the blogosphere. An author would have to post once in a week/ fortnight, with say four to five links to the most interesting posts and conversations in the blogosphere. This could either be thematic, or just a roundup of an extremely wide range of topics. The sort of posts that we look for can be read here http://globalvoicesonline.org/-/world/south-asia/ -( the left blog section).
GV, to quote their FAQ is
“..an international, volunteer-led project that collects, summarizes, and gives context to some of the best self-published content found on blogs, podcasts, photo sharing sites, and videoblogs from around the world, with a particular emphasis on countries outside of Europe and North America.”
Granted this is a volunteer thing – not paid work. GV‘s authors have guidelines etc and so sloppy rants won’t do 🙂 But it will put you and your blog on a very global profile.
