Hey guys! sorry to disturb your scrolling, but I’d just like to introduce a new online journal/blog that my friends and I set up.
Blurred Lines (no relation to the Robin Thicke song thank you) is a magazine that aims to widen people’s perspectives by introducing them to current affairs, political struggles, philosophical problems and historical contexts. Since a lot of people either don’t have time or can’t be bothered to read the news or do stuff on their own, we’ve kind of collated and analysed stuff as a starting point for people to ask their own questions, instead of having to do all the research from scratch.
We release feature articles every month about an important national or international issue. The March issue (not published yet) is going to be about the Ukrainian crisis, the Feb issue was about Sochi etc. We also do a kind of weekly news roundup so people can just see what happened in the week really quickly.
We also publish articles/editorials about political, philosophical, or even historical issues. Although some of them can be a bit controversial, the main objective is to provide as many different perspectives as possible.
We also have a “freedom” policy; we strongly believe in freedom of speech, expression, and publication. That means as long as the articles can fit into our preset categories, we won’t alter submissions from guest writers at all. We strongly believe that authors are entitled to their own opinions, as are readers. If readers have any problems with what the authors have written, they can leave a comment for the author to respond to.
So please just check us out if you’re interested or have time (we’ve only been up for about a short while, but I promise it’s interesting)!
Okay you can continue scrolling :) Sorry about the long long long post!
