“The mind is not a vessel to be filled but a fire to be ignited.” Plutarch.
Am happy and humbled to announce through this post the week old online newspaper The Burning Splint Daily created using my twitter account on paper.li.
Exactly a week today after it maiden edition the online newspaper is pulling readers which is also directed to this blog.
Using my twitter account @ManuelOdeny, the paper on Monday 11th July 2011 to glean articles, blog posts, videos and photos shared on Twitter into an online daily edition for ease of access.
Averaging about 60 contributors daily are The Economist, CNN, BBC, Times of Undia, Daily Nation, Business Daily, Guardian amongst other newspapers. Journalists and bloggers listed include Sunny Bindra, Aly Khan Satchu, Wamathai, FanyaBizna, Techmtaa and WhiteAfrican along with others.
The list is endless.
The need of sharing information which saw the creation of The Burning Splint Daily was also core in starting this blog about two years ago. With articles and cartoons (see the label on the right) in both soft and hard copy, I started the blog as a means of sharing information.
Now with over 270 posts and 22,000+ readers, the online paper has been aided in traffic flow.
May I take this time to appreciate support of friends and readers globally, both physically and online for this step.
