Bloggers of the world: help us find you

We've been hearing from some bloggers who feel that our Daily Global Blog Roundups have been missing things. There's an easy way to help us improve: Please help us write the daily roundups.

When you come across blog posts you think we ought to include in the daily roundup, please email us with the link plus a sentence or two explaining where the blogger is from and what the post is about. We'll always check this account before writing each day’s roundup.

Given the proliferation of blogs around the world, doing a daily roundup is no easy task. Most of the links are found through our aggregator, which tracks several hundred of the most active bridge blogs. Check out the aggregator and see if your favorite blogs from your country or region – or places of interest – have been included. If they haven't please head over to the Bridgeblog Index and add them to the relevant country folder. For more detailed explanation of how to do tihs, click here and here.

Regional roundups and translations: One of the major limitations of the Global Voices is our inability to read every world language. To follow conversations in parts of the blogosphere where we don’t speak the language, we rely on contributors like Ndesanjo Macha, who translates posts from Kiswahili to English to help us understand what’s going on in East Africa. If you’re interested in helping us understand part of the globe better, please consider doing the following:

- Start publishing a roundup on your own blog, translating posts into English

- Let us know about it, so we can include it in the aggregator and index, and, if appropriate, talk to you about reposting it on the Global Voices blog.

We’re also grateful for help in translating key documents like the Global Voices Manifesto, which contributors have translated into Spanish and Kiswahili.

    I’m happy to be include in this community.
    I’d like my voice would be heard to help to fight
    corruption, the reason of a great part of the human
    suffers in the poor world.
    See my country, Brazil – we have a strong economy,
    despite the enormous corruption in all the levels.
    I’m a retired teacher, I always saw person having the
    profits like teachers, but never working in a class room
    prefering stay in burocratics rooms, on sits, talking,
    doing nothing and sharing the money of the education.It’s
    common in my country this kind of thing- the robbery is
    general in all the levels.
