A high school teacher once asked me to write some satire for the literary magazine. How do you do that?, I wanted to know. “Oh,” she said, “just write down what happens”—as fine a definition of satire as I’ve come across.
Managed to add Disqus Commenting system to my personal tumblog. Let’s see if I manage to get any significant comments. I’m also experimenting with this blog design and also with tumblr widgets. Anyone here has any recommendations?
Kazemi’s coverage provides a window into Afghanistan from a native writer’s eyes that simply can’t be matched by foreign writers. He manages this all while building an online following and readership the way any web-savvy journalist would: through interaction and engagement. He’s got just less than 3,000 followers, but that number’s going up every day. Kazemi makes it a point to respond to his Twitter followers, providing his views on the Afghani news of the day.
