Presenting "Breakaway State"
#1
Hello all,

I'm here to announce the conclusion to my fairly short hiatus from micronationalism, although I will not be returning to join a micronation currently. I've been considering my options greatly the past few weeks and have decided that I would fill a slight niche that I have noticed in Micronational media.

Presenting "Breakaway State".
Breakaway State is my new secessionist-based online magazine site that will regularly host content, analysis and news articles relating to secessionism in general. My endeavour isn't entirely relating to micronationalism, I plan to include article and pieces on prominent secessionist groups such as the events in Crimea & Donetsk as well as including my knowledge on secessionist micronationalism to provide articles involving many secessionist states here on the forum and elsewhere in the micronational sphere.

What's the link?
www.breakawaystate.wordpress.com

What's gonna be on there?
Longform analysis and news on events in secessionism and micronationalism. Most of what I post will be somewhat essay based and will include my own hypotheses on secessionist ideas. I also plan to include and analyse data from the mainstream media in order to deduct what the media is saying about secessionist groups and new countries.

I'll also be doing my own "Country Profiles" section on the website which is currently blank, although I will be updating that in the near future and will keep you posted.

Where can I get constant and near irritating updates on it's content?

I'm so glad you asked! I'll be updating this thread everytime I produce a new article that you might be interested in.

You can also follow our twitter @breakawaystate and there's a nice big email subscribe button at the bottom of my webpage.

FAQs
Will anyone else be writing for this magazine?
Currently no, I hope to invite guest writers from the secessionist world to write articles but it will be mostly managed and written by myself.

Can my nation be included in an article?
If it fits in with my theme and schedule then I will include any secessionist-based nation.

Why not join a micronation?
I fancy a challenge.

Why only secessionist?
Because I think it's a subject that deserves an exclusive news service dedicated to it, and it's something I'm interested in. Why does someone start a fishing magazine? Because they like fishing.

Current Article
Here's the first article I've written for the magazine, it's an analysis piece on recent successful secessionism:

I welcome any feedback so far.

I think the article was well written, although it wouldn't hurt to have a few more examples thrown into the pot. Overall though, I look forward to keeping up with your articles.

I strongly support this idea. I think it is highly commendable that you are going to such lengths to serve the Community's need for an academic source of analysis.

Thank you, I hope to write more extended articles in the future.

I think it's long been needed.

Congratulations!

But is it a leftist sided newspaper? Or is it unbiased?

If I made the classification it would be unbiased, but you the readers will have to judge if my writing is biased or not.

While I don't know your schedule, would you be able to do say one or two articles a week, five hundred to a thousand words each?

Sounds probable, I'll do another this evening.
