Sunshine Uzbekistan Blog

I found this earlier today, but waited until it had content to mention it. Sunshine Uzbekistan has a blog with content in Russian, Uzbek, and English. It’s powered by WordPress, which is, in my humble opinion, a very wise choice. It beautifully solves my earlier complaints about offering easy content delivery. And since they’re doing it, I will now extend that earlier grumbling to the number of content providers, political organizations, etc. in or concerned with the region who either don’t offer ways to deliver content directly to readers through RSS or email or something of the sort or are having trouble consistently delivering that content (ie. emails don’t always go out because it requires someone to send to the list by hand, etc.).

I’m not going to call anyone out, but if you’re running a news or opinion site, odds are you could tinker with WordPress so it looks however you want it to while having built-in RSS feeds (and easy ways to turn those feeds into mailing lists).

WordPress is localized in a number of languages including Russian.
