First post! Welcome to the GV Community Blog!

GV Summit Chile 2010

The Global Voices community is bigger than it's ever been, proving how important our mission is to people around the world. The challenge that comes with having a huge, wonderful community is finding spaces for us to share and communicate with each other that are fun and free without taking away from the important and pretty-serious content that defines our main site and it's journalistic coverage of citizen media. 

Enter the community blog. This is a space for us to hang out and write the fun, personal stories that don't make sense on the main site. We also hope you'll find it a good place to express ideas and feelings about Global Voices mission and our future as a community. 

Thanks for participating and we hope you write a post soon!

P.S. Here's a demo of a new feature I'm adding to this first post just for convenience. Below should be an expandable box generated by the [expand] shortcode from the Collapse-o-Matic plugin.
