The idea that citizen journalist only write in Blogs needs to be changed. There are news websites like which only run on the basis of citizen/participatory journalism. I am an Engineer and management guy but at the same time a citizen journalist by choice. I belive people do take citizen journalism seriously. Its just a matter of time and more platforms like merinews to emerge. If you doubt then type my name(Sudipta Sengupta)+ citizen journalist on and see the result.
