Hi Izzet,

I may write blogs about

- the education system as I have been teaching mid-school maths here for 8 years, and have an M.A. on curriculum development and know Turkish, British and North Cypriot education systems, and/or,

- the restaurants here as I currently am running http://www.yemeksepeti.com, an internet-based food ordering system with about 40 restaurants, and/or,

- the Turkish Cypriot culture, pros and cons of living in NC, etc., as I myself if half-TC, etc.

If you're interested, I may write a sample on one of the above mentioned topics of your choice and send it over. If you like it, I'll write more.

Thanks,

Harun

Izzet: What type of bloggs are you looking for?

Presumably you want to extend your topics rather than more of the same.

Your pay isn't as much as I get from the likes of Gulf Air or the Express - but what the hell among friends!!

I'm in if the topics are within my capabilities - check my site.

Are blogs critical of KKTC allowed? I am NOT saying they should be allowed - I just feel that the sensitive issue os censorship should be fully clarified/spelt out.

I think Wyn if he has the time or Keith cally could write a gr8 warning blog abot the difficulties that can be encountered when trying to buy a property to retire to or as a holiday home



Ismet might with the aid of his wife write about things that are wrong with the system and what can be done to change it

With respect Izzet you advertised this 3 years ago and I did several blogs for you and never got a penny!!



Izzet Reply: I do not remember this at all. I am not such a person. I searched my archive but could not a find an email from you at all. Can you please forward me our communication? If I have forgotten any payment, I will make it immediately with high interest. Did we publish the blog you wrote?

Not an unusual situation. Years ago I did a series of six full length features for a magazine called Auto Enthusiast that was published by a guy called Ruben Archer and after waiting for ages for payment resorted to legal action at which the guy claimed he thought that I had traveled the length and breadth of the UK for him because I wanted to see my name in print and that payment wasn't required. On the other hand in reality I don't think that a tenner is worth falling out about.

I was a good girl I was, and wrote directly by e mail - but so far silence! So, is this a serious offer! Oh yes, whilst I appreciate Richard's charitable gesture, I need the money for my coffee bar crawls - sorry. But then, has anyone got any work to do yet? Ah - yet another mystery of life on Cyprus.
