Raana Smith's Great Blog

Raana Smith's Great Blog

It’s been about three months since ictQATAR hosted Mudwanat: All About Blogging. The event brought together bloggers from Qatar and across the region, and lots of people just generally interested in blogging. We recently reached out to some of the attendees and got great updates from many of the bloggers and it thrilling to find that the event inspired some people to start blogging.

One such person is Raana Smith. She came to the event because her friend, Shabina Khatri, was speaking as a panelist. Here’s what she had to say:

“Attending the conference and hearing the speakers really made blogging seem like something I can do.  My husband and I are in the process of adopting a baby from Morocco.  We figured blogging would be a great way to let people know about international adoption and to keep our family informed being that they’re in the US and we’re in Doha.    Check it out: http://babymaghrib.wordpress.com/

Awesome blog Raana!

Some other updates from our blogger community:

Mickie Mathes is chronicling her memoirs online.

Qatar Visitor is covering the upcoming Arab Net conference.

Abdulaziz Dalloul is keeping his blog going in two languages.

Vani Saraswathi (The Life of Umm) keeps posting at least three entries a week on a range of topics.

I Love Qatar is continuing its work on sharing the good things about Qatar.

And Kenza4u is sharing endless self discovery.

If you have a blog in Qatar let us know. We would love to keep growing the community of bloggers here in Qatar and talk with more like-minded bloggies.

Keep blogging Qatar!

    ILQ isn’t all rosey. I hope that it discusses important issues, real life situations and so there’s plenty of not so good things. (Didn’t want people thinking it’s one sided just because of the title).

    Got to realize a country’s faults if you’re going to make it better!
