HAVANA TIMES, Jan 23 — Writing for a site that you can hardly access is something normal here in Cuba. It happens pretty often.
Cyberspace is filled with Cuban blogs whose authors only rarely are able check their entries, much less interact with their readers.
That’s how life is for Cuban bloggers: 19th century beings plopped down into 21st existence, sometimes going for months without reviewing a publication, or worse, never getting to find out what ever happened to their article.
This situation is so common that it also includes me.
I rarely have the opportunity to check my blog at Havana Times, so sometimes I feel like I’m writing for nonexistent readers – or simply for beings from a planet far from Earth.
But I shouldn’t be mistaken; the one who’s far away from the blue and green planet and who lives in another world is me.
And though this happens thanks to reasons “beyond my control,” I still think I’ll continue writing for Havana Times, even in these days as we gradually begin to live lives of normal people, getting closer to for once and for all being able to review what we’ve written as soon as we enter in onto on blogs.
