Kaulga’s Travel Diary blog first created in 2016¸with its first post on the 23rd July 2016, is a collection of news, updates, events and extra ordinary happenings in and around Papua New Guinea has recently hit 297,547 hits. This is great compared to some other blogs, a record of almost 300,000 in just 2 years. It captures unique stories not often covered by the mainstream media and it covers in detail with photos and videos.
The news stories posted on this blog are for the purposes of giving the readership a positive image about Papua New Guinea and its people, economy, government and for the benefit of the next generations.
Some of its stories have been shared on Facebook in Papua New Guinea; copied and pasted to most of the Facebook groups. Some articles have also been republished by Keith Jackson on his Australia-PNG mostly popular blog PNG Attitude, http://asopa.typepad.com/.
There are so many positive and good things about PNG but the mainstream media thought bad news sells good. This maybe a common universal problem in media outlets the world over and this blog is hoping to see a new trend of media in PNG especially with the emerge of new advanced technologies.
Blockchain technology has already talked about how it will impact the printing and media industry and hopefully this new technology will bring new developments to print media reporting and publishing in PNG.
The blog also has a Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/kaulgatraveldiary/
Happy reading and keep in tune for more positive stories to come.
