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.
