Stories about Blogging Positively
As part of Rising Voices' "Blogging Positively" initiative, we will be featuring some of the most interesting examples of citizen media from around the world related to the issue of HIV/AIDS. This roundup features blog posts and videos about the issue of stigma and testing.
Join Rising Voices on December 2 for a live chat to revisit the "Blogging Positively" Guide, an online resource for individuals and organizations to learn how to use citizen media to discuss HIV/AIDS. This chat will explore ways to make the Guide as useful as possible.
Citizen media continues to play a role in reducing stigma and bringing personal stories of those affected by HIV/AIDS to a wider audience. To commemorate World AIDS Day 2010, Rising Voices is sponsoring a live chat on December 2 to examine how we as a community can continue to support those initiatives that use these digital tools.
We are pleased to announce the release of "Blogging Positively," a collection of case studies, interviews, and best practices about citizen media related to HIV/AIDS. You will be introduced to some of the leaders and veterans of the HIV-positive blogging community, and also to citizen media projects which aim to spread more awareness about the pandemic. The guide contains tips for workshop facilitators and teachers, and points readers to helpful resources for new bloggers just getting started.
