Blogger Divide

I just came across this great Saudi blog called Saudi Jeans and his last post was about the insularity of the blogger communities and the great divide between two very distinct types of bloggers.

Among us Kuwaiti bloggers, for example, I feel that we tend to flock together based on our attitudes and beliefs; in fact we tend to seek out like-minded blogs and contribute to the activities there just to reinforce beliefs that we already have.

Very few of us venture out into the great unknown "blogosphere" to see what other people with different worldviews think and write. Perhaps we're scared? I know my few trips to "the other side" have been very unpleasant. Some blogs I swore never to return to, while others I keep coming back to like a gruesome crime scene!

But I also like the sense of community among the few bloggers that take the time to comment and have set up their own blogs for us to join in the fun. I sometimes feel like I'm walking into a "diwaniya" whenever I'm on the PC.. and that we're all good friends who share many things in common.

It's a nice and healthy feeling, and I hope it stays this way.

Disclaimer: The fact that Saudi Jeans gave me a 5-star review on his blog had nothing to do with this post whatsoever.

  1. As a matter of fact, my passion in blogging is to go waaaay to the other side of my beliefs, and likings.. I don't comment much, but I do enjoy exploring minds with different methodologies, and way of life..

    and BTW, your post has everything to do with Saudi Jeans giving you 5-star.. LOLOL Don't sweat it bro. I'm only kidding :)

  10. Hi there zaydoun (Tunisia)... I see that on my blog you called yourself Zaydoun the Dreamer, which is fine as long as people don't get us confused. But I also see that on other blogs you are just Zaydoun..

    So what will it be? :-)
