"Sending bloggers to developing countries is well meaning, but without
a completion strategy risks being just groovy PR", schreibt Rowan Davies
in "The Guardian" am 29. Juni 2011:

"I think that an effective partnership can be forged between NGOs and
bloggers, but it must be done carefully. Money and time spent on
visitors should ultimately be done if they can impact the most important
people in all of this; the recipients of the interventions and aid seen
by bloggers" antwortet der "aid and development blogger" Tom Murphy

"Engaging with bloggers and social media more broadly should not just
be seen as an exercise for fundraising and communication, but should
also become part of ‘real’ evaluations of the big donor and
implementing organisations outside the NGO sector", meint
http://aidnography.de/: "Why does it seem so ridiculous if a
donor-funded project instead of spending a lot of time on quarterly
reports maintains a blog instead? Why is a lengthy report with numerous
attachments still regarded as the norm if a 20 minute documentary could
also deliver interesting insights into the progress of a project?".
