About me, myself and I

Hello world,

I’m Dina Karim and I’m a new word press user (then again that depends when you read this…).

I am a multi-media journalist cloaking under the happy world of a junior reporter in a local paper, living and reporting in the leafy, quiet countryside of East Devon – quiet but bursting with corrupting news in every nook and cranny.

Just over a year ago I decided to throw caution to the wind, follow my dreams and embark on my very poorly paid and increasingly futureless career.

Newspaper rooms are no longer filled with the media barons, creaking typewriters and smoke-stained notes I so fell in love with as my future, instead the newsroom is increasingly becoming a room concentrated within a computer screen – digital.

This is not a rant but rather an explanation as to why I am here, if I am to survive in an increasingly digitalised, contracting world I must join the ranks and embrace the social networking of the web.

So, hopefully, this is the first step of many in joining in the daily revolution.

P.S. I also hope to let some steam off and rant, and learn new and wonderful things by networking.

    Regarding your post about newspaperproject.org, I’d like to direct your attention to a similar, but more direct, campaign: http://www.newspapersmatter.com.

    Hello,

    This is Rose writing from http://www.huliq.com. I visited your blog and liked your content.

    Would you be interested to send us a guest post on any of the issues related to the topics that you cover in your blog. We will publish it in our site http://www.huliq.com

    In return with each guest blog we will give one link in the author’s biline back to your blog. We only ask that the guest post ( we prefer it be a news coverage, sources can be Google News, CNN, MSNBC, Yahoo News, BBC and others) be a unique story and not be published in your blog.

    HULIQ is indexed by Google News and Google requires that the length of the unique news is at least 5 paragraphs. We desire it to be at least 6 paragraphs if possible. And that all need to be a unique content. Once you send us a new story totally unique we will immediately publish it with you link in it, and within 15 minutes it should be indexed by Google News.

    Please let me know if you may have any questions about http://www.huliq.com.

    If you want to consult the topic with me first that’s perfectly fine as well.

    Many thanks
