I have been reading lots of blogs (arab and non - arab) lately and i am amazed by the amount of information and the important variety of topics they bring up and how up to date and deep they are, every type of information has its audience, i have to admit, ever since i started blogging and reading blogs, i learned so much, i learned about stuff i never thought of and stuff i never thought that i would be interested in (im reading about politics! when family start talking about the news, i find myself able to participate now!!) , it opened so many spaces in my head and created new interests and it shaped so many issues in my head, thank you people.
without noticing, you are changing the world. i smile. you are amazing.
but i was thinking about so many things, sometimes i come across a post by a blogger, where he/she invested time to write and its very informative and i read, and then i think this post should be published somewhere because its important for people to know this information, then i look at the amount of comments, i find zero. then i wonder.
Change comes one step at a time, i tell myself. start with yourself.
i kept thinking of the post lifecycle. with the amount of daily published material, it gives a shorter life expectancy for the post, the way it could come back to life, is either by a good researcher who knows how to dig or through a search engine where you labeled your posts correctly,, or through good mixing ( as in putting two different worlds in one spot )
what im saying is that what you people are writing is SO IMPORTANT. now suppose your post came into a search result from a search engine and you got a visitor. how would you establish this kind of credibility that a visitor would trust you as a source since you are a blogger and your info is in a post like material. its not articles.
i am not talking about changing my opinion about something, (well you did, this is an achievement, over the course of a year and a half and i sticked to this place) im talking about making this written word in an unofficial space credible for future reference. where far history is in the span of the last 5 years.
Think in another ten years from now, i dont think people will rely on books for education, papers for news. its open. its everywhere. how could you make yourself read? its like finding a needle in a pile of threads.
how will you give spread to your word? how will you employ the word to serve justice, to serve your cause?
