Time Flies....

On this day, March 20 2003... your humble blogger made his first appearance on the "blogosphere". It was a shot in the dark, more out of boredom and a way to avoid sending email dispatches about the Iraq war than any desire to say something meaningful. I truly had no idea how or where it would end up, or how long it would last..

Well, here we are today THREE YEARS LATER... It's been a thrilling, bumpy ride.. reaching dizzying heights and sometimes sickening lows. My enthusiasm for blogging has not diminished yet, although there are days when I'm just not inspired to write anything.

Of course, there is no way I could have completed three years without your ongoing support, each and every one of you. You are the power that keeps this engine running and for that I am eternally grateful.

Looking forward to several more years of hell-raising!

Yours truly



  1. I really enjoy reading your blog. Inshalla many more years to come, and we will still be reading you blog :]

  2. Happy anniversary! - Gosh you're ancient :P

    It seems like yesterday, I still remember how I searched the net for blogs on the war, and yours was one of the hits.
    A year later I started blogging - so thanks for being an inspiration!

    Till date, which has been your most cherished blog entry, Zed?

  17. Upstairs Blogger... Tough question!

    There have been so many special posts, I'd say the ones that generated the most discussions would be the ones to remember.

    The most special post for me was the one I wrote on the 22nd anniversary of my father's death (Sept 13). It was a rare occasion for me to address that subject and the comments that followed were very special to me.

    I also enjoy the posts that manage to get some laughs, because that is always a surprise. I didn't know I had it in me!

  18. كل عام و انت بخير يا حلو و انشالله

    ull plug kuwait soon:P

  19. happy aniversary. magoolik... when i said your the king of bloggers i wasnt exxagerating :-)

  20. Z,

    Hook up with one of the dailies. Be a syndicated writer. This thing is going to be wide open and many of them will need people like you. Be Bu Rakan V 2.0. I mean it.

  21. hello Zaydoun,
    keep up the hard work ;)

  22. Jambino... I am my own editor, and I want to keep it that way.

    I can't imagine being subjected to deadlines and editorial controls!

  23. Hi,

    This is off-topic but I'm working on a research project about the Kuwait blogs and was wondering if you wouldn't mind taking my survey? Full details are below:


    My name is Noor Ali-Hasan and I am a graduate student at the University of Michigan School of Information. As part of my master's thesis project, I am currently conducting a study about bloggers and their social networks. Based on your blog, you have been selected to participate in a short online survey about blogging. To qualify for the survey, you must meet the following qualifications:

    * Be at least 18 years of age
    * Currently keep a blog
    * Have a blog that contains a blogroll and/or allows comments
    * Have a blog that is part of the Kuwait Blogs community

    Your participation is completely voluntary. The survey should take about ten to thirty minutes to complete. You may access the survey at this address:

    All survey data will be kept confidential. The study's findings will be reported in aggregates and will not be used to identify a specific person. If you have any questions about this survey, please email me at

    Your time and participation is greatly appreciated!

    Thank you!

  24. Zaydoun,

    Time flies indeed, I remember my freshmen first semester away from q8 stuck to the monitor reading qhate throughout the day from March during the war, I remember the atmosphere and the long strench of alarms going off during the war even though I weren't in q8. O now I'm graduating this semester(it was like yesterday man).

    I've been no more than a spectator all along (selfish?? freaky?). I admire your work and those of other bloggers that stood up, and guess I owe you a big THANKS.

  25. 3uqbaaal il 300 yrs inshalla, not just 3!

    Happy Bday Kuwait Unplugged, o u must be so proud of ur baby Zaydoun :)

  26. Thank you for presenting me to the world of blogs & may you always stay our motivator :)

  27. Happy b(log)-day Z.

    Once I stayed all night long reading all your archives. Da3ait 3alaik yomha kept me up all night :P

  28. I second Jambino but I also see your point..
    Your blog is better than the five papers combined

    Happy anniversary :*
