Writing your first blog at the South-South Opportunity

Writing your first blog at the South-South Opportunity

Blogs are one of the fastest-growing means of communication these days: they are short, practical and often fun to read and write. As you know, our community offers us the possibility to become bloggers without having to start a personal blog from scratch. Managing our own blog can be time consuming and attracting followers to it can be quite a challenge. This is one of the main reasons why most bloggers end up dropping their projects. By joining the group of active bloggers at The South-South Opportunity you will have the chance to have your own blog without worrying about having enough time to blog on a daily or weekly basis or attracting enough traffic to make the effort worth it.

Besides, you will benefit from the great momentum or community is gaining! Everyday 2 new blog posts are being published on our site. We are currently the second site when googling “South-South Knowledge Exchange” and forth when looking up “South-South Cooperation”. Our goal is to become the number one source of user-generated content on the web on South-South Cooperation and related topics. So go ahead and write your first blog post, share your ideas, tell your story and help us expand our online knowledge base.
