In Myanmar (Burma), some blogs started in 2005. The earlier blogs were written in English, as there was no unicode font at that time, so they could not post in their mother language. After the Zawgyi font was released (created by Alpha Mandalay), Nyi Lynn Seck put the Zawgyi font in his blog and started the Myanmar blog. In 2007, some Myanmar bloggers established the MBS (Myanmar Bloggers Society), and they celebrated with a seminar on September 1, 2007. It is very difficult to write blogs locally because the government banned blog websites after the Saffron Revolution in September 2007. However, despite the ban, bloggers are still writing about the freedom of Myanmar and sharing their knowledge. MBS's slogan is "We blog, we unite."
