Dispatch Online launches new blog that explores the magnificent Eastern Cape

Having studied and worked in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa for close to 7 years, it undoubtedly holds a very special place in my heart.

Vincent and I had a bit of a laugh today when I opened up the International version of OhMyNews and clicked through to the Citizen Reporter Resources feature.
