Where Did the Blogs from El Salvador Go?

Hunnapuh remembers [es] his first steps on the world of blogs along woth other pioneer bloggers in El Salvador, and reflects that “from all those bloggers, there are very few who are still relatively constant […] today, everything is accelerated and has to be said with 140 characters, this is not bad but it doesn't leave time to see in depth,” and adds:

Blogs helped to strongly raise the question of so called “citizen journalism” and real “citizen opinion”, as most of them were never related to official, particular media, nor groups with specific power, and it was from the blogs that some important claims were made or were published news that otherwise would have never get to the public.

He ends up with “greetings to all Salvadoran Bloggers, still active or not”.

The post reviewed here was part of the first #LunesDeBlogsGV [Monday of blogs on GV] on May 5, 2014.
