United We Blog! is the first blog site of Nepal that came into existence on 1 October 2004 at wagle.com.np. It began as a diary of the founding bloggers who posted their personal experiences of journalism and reporting. Four months later, the then king Gyanendra imposed emergency in Nepal in a bloodless coup. Internet was unavailable for public for the first week of February 2005. UWB went offline as there was no Internet connection. As soon as the Internet service resumed, the site started blogging about what was happening in Kathmandu and around the country. At one point in time when there was strict censorship in the Nepali media, the site became the only source of independent news for the rest of the world.
Mission: United We Blog! wants democracy and peace to be restored in Nepal as soon as possible. We write about Nepali politics and society.
We accept articles related to Nepal from people all over the world
We are a group of like-minded journalists working on various media outlets in Kathmandu and other parts of Nepal. This is our forum to express things that we can’t in our media because of various reasons like space and time constraints in traditional media. We also include posts from contributers from different parts of Nepal and the World.
United We Blog! born because we were jeolous of those who have a forum to post their thoughts!
because we love computers and more than that Internet!
because we know how to install php scripts on the webserver!
born because we have View Nepal Pvt Ltd offering us space! (Update (Feb 2006): That was then. Now we are hosted in a different server)
And most importantly,
United We Blog! born because we wanted to share something we can’t share in newspapers!
United We Blog! is the forum for professional journalists in Nepal to express whatsoever they think blogable and whatsoever they think should make to the virtual world of Internet and WWW.
