English speakers have feelings too you know.
Hello Dudes and Dudettes,
I am glad to announce that I have started blogging in Arabic at ihath-losing myself bel arabi. Thanks to Muhammad for providing the inspiration to get me to start writing in Arabic. Before I started this blog I tried to search around for other Arabic blogs in order to get inspiration, sadly I found very few. The only one that I found and liked was moodless, a blog of a young Kuwaiti fellow. His writing style is poetic and reflective in nature...very interesting. Through his blog I discovered the Kuwaiti Blogosphere, who knew? Exploring that a bit, most of the blog are in English as well.
It seems that we Arabs suffer from englishites blogarism, the uncontrollable desire to blog in English. Perhaps one of the many, many doctor Iraqi bloggers can prescribe a cure.
I also have been exploring the Iranian Blogosphere and found a bazillion of blogs and most of them are in Persian with only a few in English. A good starting point to the Iranian blogosphere is hossein derakhshan. It seems that Iranians are less prone to englishites blogarism disease. Must be all the chello kebab they eat.
