10 Worst Countries to be a Blogger

The Committee to Protect Journalists came out with a list of the 10 worst countries to be a blogger that I found quite interesting. It's hard to imagine blogs being banned in certain countries, but it is very prominent in many Middle Eastern and Asian countries with oppressive governments. Maybe most surprisingly is the fact that Burma was named the worst country to blog in. Many people don't know about the issues occurring in Burma, but during the 2007 uprising, internet was completely shut down. It's no wonder why nobody knows about Burma...they don't allow any information to get out! Check out the rest of the list of the worst blogging countries and try to get familiar with the issues occurring in that country also. Since the people in those countries don't have voices, it's important for us to be there voice. Remember, don't stand by and watch injustice...get involved, act, and let's begin to change this world for the better!
