Bali Update Turns 12

Bali Update Celebrates Twelve Years of Telling Bali's Side of the News.


Bali News: Bali Update Turns 12
Click Image to Enlarge

(3/2/2010)



On March 3, 2010, Bali Update turns twelve.

Initially conceived as a an email to share "Bali's side of the story," a small mailing list has now turned into a newsletter mailed to 20,000 plus subscribers every week that's quoted regularly by media around the world.

Twelve years, 703 editions and some 6,000 articles later, Bali Update is still here giving our Bali-based perspective on the news. Is our news always positive? Unfortunately not, but that's a price that must be paid to maintain credibility. But, as demonstrated time and again, by telling the truth we also preserve our right to tell Bali's side of every story by keeping open our established chain of communication with the media and Bali-philes everywhere. Whether we're covering rabies, H1N1 or long lines for visas at Bali's airport - we continue to strive to describe any problem together with the steps Bali is taking to overcome the situation.

Some have commented that Bali Update's coverage of the news is increasingly sharp edged. There's a logical explanation for this. Because 90% of our news is comprised of truthful renderings of information appearing in the Indonesian language local media, our stories automatically reflect the unbridled freedom of expression now enjoyed by the Indonesia media.

And, on those occasions when Bali Update has it's own opinion on a topic affecting Bali it's filed under the heading "Editorial." In this vein, despite earning our livings from the sale of accommodation, tours and transportation to visitors via [www.balidiscovery.com] and [www.ayokebali.com], we will continue to put our love for Bali before any commercial considerations when highlighting areas that we think threaten the sustainability of the Bali's natural environment or its esteemed ancient culture.

Preparing each edition of Bali Update is a labor of love done by its Editor, John "Jack" Daniels, the President Director of Bali Discovery Tours, who has dreams of the day when finances will allow him to hire a supporting editorial staff, freeing his weekends for something other than preparing the next edition.

Looking back over twelve eventful years, we express our sincere thanks to those of you who used our travel services, helping us to pay the bills. Thanks also to the many readers who have taken the time to write in. Similarly, the numerous awards Bali Update has received on a provincial, national and international level have warmed our hearts, providing inspiration and motivation to carry on. In this regard, thank you to government of Bali and the many travel organizations who've seen fit to bestow these honors.

Again, "thank you all."

Like clockwork, we'll see you next week.
