Your Voluntary Subscription makes it happen…


When we decided to make an honest blog out of Caracas Chronicles our goal was to build a self sustainable operation that would not pop-up, cyberstalk, or try to insistently sell Russian brides to our readers. We asked, and you said that was not the way to go. We listened.

Voluntary subscriptions have become the lifeblood of the blog. You’ve made Caracas Chronicles happen: THANK YOU

With a small contribution you help us fight the media blackout and make sense out of this mess.

Last year you were incredibly generous with us. With your voluntary subscriptions and donations you helped us grow and we wanted to show you how.

You can now also support us using cryptocurrencies.

Not Just Caracas Chronicles anymore

Right now we have people writing from Caracas, Guarenas, Guatire, Puerto Ordaz, Mérida, Barquisimeto, Maracay, Maracaibo, San Cristóbal, Valencia, and we’re looking forward to find many others and turn this list into a 90’s cell phone company commercial.

Blogging University

Seeing our writers get their footing and polish their writing chops to a point where they can pursue journalism and careers as writers, and seeing them publish in international media, is an accomplishment that we celebrate (even when it means losing a regular contributor).

The road ahead

It’s been 16 years of ups and downs and comings and goings, and many changes, and even more down the road. Which makes sense, because, you know, Venezuela. We have great plans ahead for Caracas Chronicles. The country is changing and we must adapt.

Thanks for your support!
