What a terrific week on the TH!NK3 platform!

Bloggers and have stormed online, posting over 120 articles in just eight days: incredible! One of the most popular themes on the platform this week was "The Robin Hood Tax".

Andrei Tuch, Maria Kuecken, Ian Sullivan and Benno Hansen tackled the topic. Read their posts here:

Ian Sullivan's Robin Hood: Simple idea, great campaign

Benno Hansen's “Take away our Playstations and we are a 3rd World nation”

Maria Keuken's Giving Robin Hood a Chance

Andrei Tuch's A Layman’s Take on the Robin Hood Tax

Next week, we begin our series of guest bloggers. First on the platform will be Ana-Maria Luca, a Romanian blogger and journalist from NOW Lebanon (seen in the photo below).

Ana-Maria also blogs at  http://inorientulmijlociu.blogspot.com/, where her bio reads as follows:

I'm a journalist and I don't seem to be able to get out of this business. I started in 2001, writing for one of the best daily newspapers, Jurnalul National. I covered a few beats like Education and Environment. Then I did special reports, been the editor of monthly special issues on migration and Romanian communities in the world (not an easy job I tell you). Then switched to television in 2005, when I started as an international news writer for Antena1 and Antena3 Tv stations. I had my rebellion period, it lasted for a few months. I resigned and started to work for a tabloid. I nearly went out of my mind for a while and I decided that was not for me no matter how much money it involved. So, after writing and editing and doing the field work for a women's tv station, I went back to Antena3 news station in Bucharest. I wrote their foreign news for a while, and now I find myself in Beirut finishing an MA in International Affairs and writing for a leading English language publication, NOW Lebanon.

 

 

I'll wrap up now and wishing you all a great weekend!

Happy Blogging!
