I run a website called BlogfromItaly.com, which, as you may have guessed from the name, is all about Italy.
BlogfromItaly.com is starting to gain some mainstream recognition, with my work having been quoted by the Italian L'Espresso magazine, and in the UK's Guardian Online. Several Wikipedia entries link to posts on BlogfromItaly.com.
Blog posts cover a multitude of subjects, all with Italy as the central theme. My problem is that I have far too many interests. Topics include Italian news, products, travel, politics, and business.
Now there are two more, unpaid, people writing for BlogfromItaly.com, so now we are three. One new scribe writes about Sardinia, and then there is a UK based designer of Italian origin writing about Italian design. I'm now acting as a writer and editor, as I review and edit articles before running them.
The style of Blog from Italy is partly journalistic, and partly blog-style editorial comment.
I am not a journalist, but run training courses on how to write press releases for Italian media relations master students. I work with Italian publishing group, Il Sole 24 Ore as an English teacher and trainer, and have several contacts who are 'real' journalists, including one who is an ex-Associated Press editor, and Pulizer Prize candidate.
Content from Blog from Italy is featured on the Global Post news website, which thinks Blog from Italy is one of the world's top 350 blogs.
As far as I am aware, BlogfromItaly.com is one of a kind in terms of sites doing more than merely talking about Italian food wine, and travel in Italy.
