In this speedy era, one month seems like a long time.
Faces and whole outlooks can transform; opinions/religions change, homes may move across the continents, spouses and sexualities may alter- or any combination thereof. Thousands have their 15 minutes of fame, the space station turns 480 times around the planet, a country is invaded, liberated – or both. My share was to become just another blogger on the web.
I started blogging by pure accident. I was fooling around on the net, I noticed a line at the bottom of the page: Get a …”F R E E”… blog at WordPress.com , I clicked, and Voila! Thanks WordPress 🙂
I am not a master of English – or any other- language for that matter 😦 Yep! I am at the mercy of my two forced-volunteer-editors Changiz, downstairs home and Rona in Alexandria. I lack the experience to communicate on such a regular basis but as the wise Bluebear said: …let if flow. I would advise anyone from my area of the globe to read about blogging manners. It might help.
Few statictics: total hits: above 850. Tintin in Teheran was definitely “the” hot topic, followed by Double Life and Paris’Vlogs right below. Lesson number one: I shouldn’t write, I should link… and ping!
I enjoy reading caustic and sarcastic writings as well as the wise and thoughtful posts of my dear Friend To Humanity, see for instance “Publish or Perish“. Beside the adjoining blogroll, the followings are some of my findings or- favorites in no particular order:
Wikipedia, wikipedia, wikipedia!
Wikipedia has a page about Iranian blogs, and it reports that “Persian is now the fourth most widely used language on web logs.” – seems it used to be the third. Here is “a case study of Iranian English Language weblogs”, and this is the directory of english blogs by Iranians.
Global Voice has a great amount of links. [under construction] !! is also about Iran and more. An american lady blogs in Farsi in I learn Farsi, , and in View From Iran another American blogs from Iran. Here are Ali Ettefagh‘s writings for the Washington post.
I found a very disturbing research, The Great Famine and Genocide in Persia, 1917-1919. A page of history that –ignorant me, had never heard about. If anyone knows more about this please do inform me!
I really enjoyed reading from A to Z the caustic verve and bravado of El Professor Victorino De La Vega Y Alcantara – found in Tltlkts‘ blogroll. He starts with a warning: “Civilized men are more discourteous than savages because they know they can be impolite without having their skulls split…” Here you go 🙂
I learned recently that Attack On Iran Would be Understood. What a relief.
I will have to cool down for the next month, my clients are getting impatient!
