Monday, November 29, 2004Bahrainiblogs, which I havent had time to check out, in its launch phase, seems promising although I can't quite figure out how its going to work. Looks more like a forum, but too early to judge.
Secondly, and more importantly, the move towards blogging in arabic, which I am more interested in. The reality of the matter, is that the current english blogs cater for a very limited audience, and offer the view of a Western-educated elite, which is simply not representative. Homer seems to have taken the first step into switching or experimenting with arabic at least. There is also a new blog by Ali Abdulemam, a young professional, written completely in arabic, which shall provide another welcome glance into Bahrain. By doing this, I hope that blogging catches on with the mainstream non-english speaking internet users in which they will discover a whole new world. When this is achieved, only then can I conclude that we have our very own blogging revolution in Bahrain.
