Snippets from the first Arab Bloggers Meeting in Beirut (from an extremely personal perspective)

– Since it was a very short trip fa I had to leave Rateeba & Ensaf here, they would have made it hard for me. With all the debate, discussions and indecisiveness… you know!! I really wanted to work my trip out.


– I came across different and diverse experiences from different countries, which was really pretty interesting.


– Some bloggers think that as long as you are neither a political blogger/activist nor your name was mentioned in the media you are not a “successful” blogger.


– Some of the participants were amazing, delivered informative presentations, and added a lot to me on the personal level.


– I met a blogger whom I’ve been looking forward to meet for a while, great person and personality.


– I am quite intolerant towards people who speak but never listen, they actually turn me off.


– I came to find that people tend to put a frame/border to whatever they are doing. Why??


– Two gentlemen of the attendance came in the first session with wedding bands on their hands and by midday the bands puuufffffffff vanished 😉 (niahaahaha….am all about PERSONAL stuff, mafish fayda)


– I had two options either to socialize and blend in or to go my way and figure the city out…I actually went with number two and was probably called anti-social. On my defense people socialize way tooooo late for the early me
