A trip down the Kuwaiti blogs lane

I decided to see the blogs around this noon, I was shocked of how the Kuwaiti blog-o-sphere changed, back in the summer of 2004 when I first started blogging it was a small community, we knew each other and the Kuwaiti blogs were very few compared to now, even with the years as more people joined it was still manageable and almost all of us respected each other and accepted the differences. 

After late 2006 a big leap happened and blogging became more famous, the spread of blogging is something nice but what I noticed with the end of 2007 and currently is the increasing number of weird blogs! meaning weird people, who I was not familiar with before, by that I include:

  • Religiously biassed
  • Politically biassed
  • Insulting others
  • Less respect to other opinions


It is a pity that we did not stay as we were, but this is the tax of publicity and nevertheless this is a slice of the Kuwaiti community, the ones who blog are in the end Kuwaitis.

On the other hand we have a brighter image, some specialized blogs emerged and some blogs that spread useful information, private businesses, also magazines joined the league and some shops too!

Conclusion, if there is a plus! there is definitely a minus, we chose to see either and we also encourage either of them to grow bigger....

الصوره اعلاه لمذيعة بتلفزيون الكويت و انا هاقيه انها كويتيه؟! و غير مكياجها و لبسها و الشعر اسم البرنامج اعتقد ساعة الضحى او شي جذيه المهم انه بحزة الضحى

شنو علاقة الضحى بلبس و مكياج المذيعة؟ 

مو المفروض الضحى يكون الشخص ابسط من جذيه؟ بس شنقول الناس اذواق و الله يرحم ايام امينة الشراح و دولت شوقي و ماما انيسه! و من بعد حصة الملا ما شفت غير ناديه صقر "و لها عرات" و ايمان نجم "هم لها عرات" بس على الاقل هالثنتين مقتدرين اعلاميا، بغيت انسى نيرفانا ادريس اللي لو الحين نشوف لها برنامج قديم اعتقد شكلها ماراح يكون يخرع لانها بسيطه و شكلها و مكياجها مو مبالغ فيه بس منو يفهم ان
less is more?

I agree with what you said concerning the [then] new blogs. They're now considered 'established' blogs with a considerable number of readers.

If I may add one criterion..... Dogmatic!

Happy belated Birthday & Blogiversary :)

I agree with the dogmatic thing, very true.

Loolykinns

lol
its not only lkhdood dear :D its everything!

Bo_Sale7

collagen, botox, celicon and more!

but the amazing thing is, they still manage to look UGLY without using the above stated and by only relying on makeup !!

3baaaaid

lol, do u think so? I feel that its a common word, isnt it?

Brown_Sugar

true, time VS external look is totally lost here! its all about full make up and over dressing all day long!

the anonymous thing is an other issue, if you are not courageous to say something why say it? let aside the multiple personalities/ blogs/ nicknames! this is an other issue I hate

جان زين عرفت عالم البلوق من زمان

لان بدايتي كانت بالمنتديات اللي ضيعت مواضيعي بسبب تغيير السيرفر و جذي

لكن للأسف و كلمه تنقال و لحد يزعل

في ناس ادش عالم البلوق و تكرر نفس نمط الاشخاص الثانيين

سواء من ناحية شنو سويت اليوم و جذي

و الاشياء اليوميه اللي يسجلونها

حسبالهم بس هذا التدوين

احنه ودنا نشوف ناس مبدعين و نشوف افكار يديده

و ان شاءالله ما ينزل مستوى البلوق و يرتفع


نصيحه : لا تعورين راسج بملاقة تلفزيون الكويت هي هي

باي

" If you are not courageous to say it why say it ? "

Chill : I disagree with you on that. Every dog must have his day - a coward too gets to have his say. Blogging would lose its charm if you took away the anonymity aspect from it. Several blogs thrive precisely, because the writer chooses to stay anonymous. By allowing one to be a man today a woman tomorrow or a eunuch the day after, blogs give much needed carte blanche to free wheeling dialogue to happen between opposite camps ultimately, leading to an enrichment of human capital.

lol

و المشكله ماندري انتفاخ طبيعي ولا صناعي؟

Mr_Chocolate

لول
انا هاجره تلفزيون الكويت من دهر بس القراده و ماتسوي يا وخيي

و على المنتديات ذكرتني بالايام الخوالي و خليتني افكر ادور مقالاتي القديمه :> ايام النبراس


Ever changing nick :p

What I meant dear anonymous with an ever changing nickname :D is sticking to ur blogging identity at least, we are here anonymous already behind our nicknames, but for some to go as far as going anonymous on their anonymously made up nickname? :D its a bit overboard for me, what i wanted with that is at least for a person to have ONE personality, behind a nickname behind a real name it doesn't matter :) i just want ppl to be who they are

Mr_Chocolate

نسيت اعلق على موضوع البلوقات و مستواها

ماعندي مشكله باللي يسجل حياته اليوميه و يعتبر البلوق مذكرات الكترونيه، و يمكن يكون انسان مبدع بطبيعته و يدون لنا يوم عادي بس نشوف منه الكثير اللي نقدر نستفيد منه او يقدر يمتعنا، و هذا ما يمنع اني احب انتشار البلوقات اللي فيها ابداع و شغل و الهام للكل لان هالشي بالنهايه يزيدنا فخر ككويتيين ان شبابنا ايبدع باي مجال كان

فوتو شوب
تصوير
كتابه
نقد
الخ
:>

اللي يضايقني اللي يبي يكون شخص ثاني و اللي يتحامل على غيره بس لانهم غير عنه و ما يتقبل انه يسمع الغير ولا يقرا لهم

The blog-o-sphere has emerged with some interesting blogs, a few of them aren't coherent and they give me headache when I try to read them. And it seems a lot of it is online bickering but still some really good ones came out and enjoying seeing the quality. Hopefully more good ones will come out.

Mr_CHoCoLaTe said...

صح ترى تدوين المذكرات اليوميه

وايد يفيدني و يفيد غيري

لان يعلمني اماكن يديده بالكويت

و يعطيني آراء اشخاص بمنتج معين مثلاً

و مرات ياخذونه برحله بيومهم هذا

ان شاءالله نشوف شي يديد و تنافس احلى

باي باي
