Global Voices in Persian  finally takes off officially. It started its first baby steps in June and a few of its translations have already been republished on a few sites including a very popular one, Gooya.com  and the Iranian Digg ,Balatarin .
On good days we get around 350 hits and 250 visitors and some bloggers have sent very encouraging emails. Our target audiences are Iranians and Afghans.
A new Iran-based website, Fararu, has published an article about us, saying: “Global Voices, considered a giant medium for blogs, has recently launched a version in Persian.”
When I heard that GV was available in Chinese , I thought it was great news but was skeptical about whether it would work for Iranians. Fortunately, it seems that I was wrong.
