I am (i think) one of the newest volunteers at FINNBAY and I am totally happy with everything so far. We have two Finns in the team and I am one of them.
I do features and travel articles at Finnbay. I got some travel experiences (all free – in 5 star hotels!) and write occasionally in the opinion section. I mostly deal with Bruce and occasionally Onur. I am happy that they started this venture as I believe this was a serious need.
To be honest, I hated the first edition (prior to September 13) where it featured blog posts (and apparently these expat bloggers spammed Finnbay with their duplicate posts from their blogs without telling Onur or anyone else). This is bad for google also as it will not rank the website by categorizing it as duplicate.
After those bloggers were sacked, Finnbay got its original material and now I am proud to be included here. I have no opposition to bloggers but come on anyone can create a blog in 1 minute and pretend like they are someone (in fact, no one reads or cares what they write) – false celebrity feeling.
Anyways, I wanted to write here to be part of this section and also to let future volunteers/workers know how it feels like being part of Finnbay.
