The international free speech group, Reporters Without Borders (RSF), has released the “Handbook for bloggers and cyber-dissidents,” an instruction manual on how to blog without Big Brother finding out.

Countries such as China and Iran police and censor speech offline as well as online. But online soapboxes like weblogs have become a powerful new form of speech, difficult to detect, trace, and shut down.

“Bloggers are often the only real journalists in countries where the mainstream media is censored or under pressure. Only they provide independent news, at the risk of displeasing the government and sometimes courting arrest,” posts RSF at their website.

This is why RSF has released the new handbook, to provide a leg-up to dissident bloggers by instructing them with technical advice about how to remain anonymous and which methods are suitable in various situations for getting around censorship.

The handbook also explains how to set up a blog, establish credibility, and publicize it through effective search engine optimization.
