ALERT: THIS BLOG IS MOVING TO A NEW WEBSITE & I NEED YOUR SUPPORT TO GROW IT

Thirteen years ago, I started MY LAND | MY COUNTRY as a personal blog project. It was basically to store poetry and short stories.

It has grown to include news, commentary and analysis on various PNG related issues. Over the last 10 years, it has become an extension of reporting and a platform for Papua New Guineans wishing to express opinions that don’t always make it to mainstream media.

Unfortunately, the free WordPress blog platform has reached the limits of its usefulness and I’ve decided to move to a new website: www.mylandmycountry.org


The blog, in its present form has over 40,000 followers. It has been a voice for the ordinary person wishing to talk to his political representative and to express an opinion. Through this blog, we covered instances of medicine shortages. We called out the health ministry for its lies. We highlighted injustices caused through illegal evictions. We also used this blog to highlight injustices in West Papua. It hasn’t been all bad news. We also followed the successes of kaukau and honey farmers in the Eastern Highlands and a family furniture company. Those were just some of the stories


The commentaries have become a powerful extension of media freedom in Papua New Guinea. It is storytelling from a personal personal perspective. Opinionated. Sometimes humorous and abrasive. I share emotions and thoughts which otherwise are not conveyed through mainstream platforms.

Others have joined me in this quest. All volunteers who believe in a cause – To tell Papua New Guineans stories from OUR own perspective not as observers but as participants on a journey.

We come from a multitude of cultures where storytelling is central to our existence. I hope you can support this kind of storytelling because it is what what Papua New Guinea needs.

So…

You can find the blog here on a new website: www.mylandmycountry.org. You can also follow @MLMCblog on Twitter and on Facebook on the My Land | My Country page

Thank you!
Scott
