Blog to America

Here is an interesting site, Blog to America. A blog where, as the site says, “individuals from around the world post their opinions on the United States in the form of letters and comments addressed to America. This is achieved by clicking on the “Submit a Letter” tab and filling out the form, sending them an email, or even by sending a hand-written letter in the mail. The letter will be posted in the form of a blog entry. Users can then post comments on the blog, and engage in a discussion.

The site is not merely for us foreignors, Americans can also comment on their nation by visiting the American Perspectives page.

Blog to America’s Mission reads:

Four Americans created Blog to America in order to provide a place where foreign perspectives on the United States could be voiced and heard by normal, everyday people across the globe. As the U.S. is such a large and geographically isolated country, it can be easy for us Americans to overlook global issues and occupy ourselves with matters pertaining entirely within our borders. Thus, Blog to America was created to serve two roles. First, to provide an opportunity for Americans to increase their global awareness by reading views and perspectives from the international community. Second, to allow individuals from around the world to voice their opinions on American policies, culture, current events, or anything else that pertains to America. Readers can also respond to these views and engage in an international dialogue. In this increasingly smaller and connected world, the Blog to America team hopes that this site will bring people and ideas together for a positive change in attitudes and minds of people across the globe.
