How many good things do you know about Russia? If you google “Russia positive” – you will find mostly the news about HIV positives in Russia , if you try it with Google page on “Good Russia” – there are more sceptical than really good news either.
Russia has been and still is a mystery for the rest of the world. Basically it lays on the Russia`s national policy: as a self-sufficient country, Russia sees no need in self-promotion (as some other countries do). That is why so much of the fascinating information remains unknown to the non-Russian speaking people.
Seeing all that, and actually being fed up with the negative news on Russia, I decided to start a special project – a multy-authors Blog under the title “1000 things you never knew about Russia”. Actually I was planning a post “10 things about Russia you never knew”, but discovered that 10 are too less – these are innumerate facts and interesting observations… May be I will still start with this post here, on 1000petals – but the blog will be created too!
I am looking for the co-authors (Russians who can write in English) or Russophiles 🙂 It can become a big thing, and a very valuable source for many researches and just curious souls. It wonder if it would be possible to make such a blog to the opinion leader in the field or – another possibility – if would be possibly banned (even by WordPress, like this one – an American writing about Russian Women)…
So basically that was a short promotion of something that does not exist yet 🙂 Hope with your support I will find out how good this idea actually is.
Thanks and LOVE, axinia
