Aside

What will my first blog be about?It has to hit the Lebanese blogosphere like a meteor, creating a blaze trail of little sparkling stars and sprouting Lilacs in it’s wake… Naaah! I’ll just plain old introduce myself. My name is Rana, and I like to think of myself as a writer. The fact that I do not make a penny out of putting fingers to keypad does not in the least take away from my love for the written (typed?) word.

What else should I say about my blogger character? I’m new to this business of revealing your innermost thoughts to whoever cares to read. As a matter of fact, the whole lack of privacy issue,so organically inherent with being online, has scared me off the blogs for a while now. However, this virtual world with its open windows and thin walls is our new reality, and I’ve decided to immerse myself in it.

Why do I want to blog?Do you know how when a certain social, political, or other issue strikes your attention and you make a mental note “I should write about that”? And then the next day you read a newspaper article or, more relevantly, a blog that discusses the same issue and you go “ya rabbi, I was thinking about this just yesterday”? Well, I have decided to stop thinking to myself and rather to document my thoughts and share them with the other Lebanese or Martians who might find what I write interesting . And so, 2012, you witness the birth of a fledgling.

Let the blabbering begin!
