Season of Migration to the Blogosphere

It's been quite noticeable lately how many people are leaving forums, or at least become less active, prefer to have their own spaces to speak their minds, and create their own blogs. Every other day I discover a new blog created by a person I knew as a member in a forum I used to be active at.

Raeef, Qais, Ohoud, Iman, Laila, Ola, Simsim, Rana, Weddo, Jood, Reem, Mais and Mais, Amjad and Amjad, Dina, Areej, Maya, Hala, Kouki, Manal, Hani, Mohammed, Dima, Aladdin, Omar, Hazem, Ali , Faris, Kolita, Algoo, Khaled, yours truely, and still counting...
who else? etla3o min bein el khobeizeh

All these people migrated to the blogosphere. Good for them by the way, especially after the stupid action that was taken by the adminstration of the forum. I was glad to see many of them blogging because they make good writers and have creative ideas to blog about. It was wise of them to put these ideas in a safe place rather than in a place where they end up thrown in a trash can.

Aladdin said...

Tell me about it, it was painfull, wil 7abil 3al jarar, the administration is making the site more unbearable and boring than ever.

I wish I could just leave mahjoob, but I can't just leave something I invested 7 years of my life in.

I didn't know such a huge number of Mahajeeb are active bloggers, nice! =D

Ola said...

Are all those peopel mahjoobians? :D

Hala said...

Exactly ... I was extremely disappointed. It just feels sad you know. I was about to blog about the same thing by the way.

I love my blog, to hell with forums :P

I like the new background :D

Hala said...

Question ... Who are Laila, Hani, and Khaled?! :smiley yatasa2al:

Oriental Arabesque said...

I liked blogs more than forums

At least you get to read some valuable and worthy thoughts. You interact with "mature" ppl and read mature comments instead of chatting and 6a2 7anak :)

Hala said...

I thought Laila was CHE too :P

Hani = Ironic-Eye :D

PŕōuđPāŀĩ said...

hala: lol tle3et ghal6aneh, i went to the site again its To The Point :D shud have had a look before ma afti la7ali :D

PŕōuđPāŀĩ said...

diana: i shud have started blogging ages ago i reckon, its so easy to say what u wish and know only the selected comment, also, as u mentioned, the "action" was repelling.

Laila said...

yep, I'm TTP :)

It was not the action as much as the bickering and petty arguments that resulted when you published anything that brought me down. So when Ola suggested blogging, I jumped at the chance :)

But it is hard to keep track of other blogs, so its great we have these blog aggregators (right word?) to keep track of new posts.

theone said...

wa ma 5afya kana a3thaam :p

i think i started a chain of mahjoob bloggers myself :P enti ma7sobeh mn hal chain :D

Diana said...

Hazem good idea :D
Kouki, 2ala 2olet Raeef wa ma 5ofeya a3tham.
Raeef, that's true, you were the first who introduced me to this world :p

Me too, I thought that Laila is Che, but I found a post about Islam and the style of writing was far away from being Che's.

Anyway, I'm really glad to see you all blogging :)
