Before history is forgotten or re-written, this must be said.
It was a long time ago that Malaysians wanted to write and be published to be read by the nation at large. But back then we did not have the internet. We did not have blogs. We only had one channel to write – the mainstream newspapers. Our options limiting, our choices limited.
With the advent of the internet, and blogs, the reverse has occurred. There is now much space to be published but not enough writers.
The ONLY blawg – that cares – was established to organise and build a community of writers who wanted to be published and be heard. And heard on ANY topic under Malaysia’s sun, and moon. Everyone has a voice, and must claim the space to accentuate the voice; for if not, other voices will take that space.
LoyarBurok is unique because it is not only a blawg, but a lifestyle (see: LoyarButik). Yes, right.
The uniqueness of the blawg is that every new writer gets immediate and direct access to the blawg with a username and password. Thereafter, writers are at liberty to publish their posts on their own with the assistance of the blawg’s dedicated MastHead team.
More astonishingly, LoyarBurokkers are free to curate (English: design) the blawg as many times they like on a weekly basis! A curator leads, engineers and decides what appears on the blawg for the week. This is D-I-Y at its best.
We have hundreds of LoyarBurokkers – more non-lawyers than lawyers (note: LoyarBurok is not for lawyers or about the law only, we have LoyarBurokkers from various places of birth, of different backgrounds and of different social origins) – who have written and contributed in different ways. Many of our writers have gone on to do great things after being first spotted at LoyarBurok. The blawg is much like a youth academy churning out youth super-footballers only to be sold for filthy millions to big, rich clubs like Manchester United. Only difference is: LoyarBurok gets nothing. Yet, our community continues to expand in the quest to rule the world.
