We are the cover story of the Dubai-based Khaleej Times ‘Weekend’ magazine today! What an awesome way to celebrate ‘AOC’. KT’s feature writer Pratibha Umashankar pulled out all the stops to write ‘Mind Blogging’, a brilliant story on ‘AOC’ that also explores the following questions:
o What are the advantages of blogging?
o The implications of ‘blooking’ both commercially and from a readership point of view vis-à-vis conventional publishing
o The future of blogging and citizen journalism
o Implications of blogging in terms of news value
Several of the other AoC authors are also shown, holding their copy of the book.
The lesson? Never ever underestimate the power of collaboration and the spirit of giving first. Thanks to all the AoC authors and especially Arun for making this possible. Hopefully it means we will break a new milestone for our Variety donation!
