Call for New Sikh bloggers

Two years ago, a group of friends started this blog to create a platform where we could discuss issues concerning the TLH.jpgSikh community, in a reflective, self-critical, and progressive way. We envisioned it as a way to continue the conversations that happen in many Sikh conferences around the U.S., between the sporadic and short times that we are able to meet face-to-face.

We wanted to create a safe space for conversations that we felt were critical, but didnt see happening as much as they were needed.

Since that beginning, our readership has grown, our vision has grown, and now, so too must our capacity.

We are looking for passionate Sikhs who share our dedication to our community and faith, to join in contributing to the broad array of conversations that take place on The Langar Hall’s pages. Do you enjoy writing? Are you interested in engaging in conversation with other Sikhs from throughout the world? If so, send an email to [email protected] and let us know youre interested.

We dont always talk about Sikh issues, but instead, share the common thread of being Sikh. Our Sikh heritage shapes our worldview. Our interests and perspectives, however, are as varied as any group of individuals. Whether youre interested in art, music, literature, politics, movies, or social activism, if youre rooted in Sikhi, and have an inclination to write, we want to hear from you.

We’d love to have contributors that are as global as our diaspora. In the past, most of our bloggers have been from North America. However, we post about events that happen all over the world. We want to hear from you whether you’re in Australia, Kenya, India, the U.S., or anywhere else in the world. No matter where you are, if you’re interested in blogging for The Langar Hall, let us know! Email [email protected]

    It seems like the initial Sikh Blog excitement has slowed down. There was a point when a lot of Sikhs were blogging and now people have appeared to move one.

    I disagree. I think the Sikh blogosphere is still alive and very useful. There are just a lot of blogs to read. I hope blogging continues. I look to blogs to keep me updated on what's going on in our community.

    I think that a lot of Sikhs turned to blogs as Sikhnet for a time stopped being a one-stop-shop for quick Sikh news, and focused its front page on other things. Im not being critical, but just pointing it out.

    i think blogs and forums, etc. will only be as active as the people involved.

    By that I mean, it's an open invitation to us to see how we can make our forums more effective to serve the community so that, in turn, we can serve all communities.

    If a blogosphere reflects a group, I would say the sikh blogosphere reflects the majority of sikhs. Passive, disengaged, uninterested or unaware. Just as Guru Nanak took the journey of seeking truth within to the corners of his world, the sikh blogosphere too much eat it's own cooking. Until we have the masses finding the sikhi dots, and connecting them, there will be little to engage further, in the deeper/higher level discussions. The question this leaves me with is, how to engage the unengaged? If the sikh blogosphere's audience became the 95% of sikh youth that are not engaged, what might it look like? What might it say?
