Cultural and Culinary Bloggers’ Meeting

7 Mar, '06

This is a reminder of our meeting tomorrow night, please make sure you attend.

Location: Dar Al-Bareh Art Gallery Cafe, Adliya
Time: 7.30pm
Date: 8 Mar ’06

Price: approximately BD 5 per head
(yes, we’re actually having dinner this time!)

The agenda is:

Fred and I have prepared a few questions and short presentations on the blogging scenes in both Belgium and Bahrain and maybe then we can talk about our individual experiences and what we see for the blogging spheres in Bahrain and Belgium going forward.

My questions (if you wish to prepare a short presentation about you and your blog it would be highly appreciated)

    1. Why did you start blogging and how did that affect your life so far?
    2. Do you see your blog effecting change in your chosen topic or the sphere you chose to blog about? Did it achieve any change so far?
    3. Do you intend to “turn professional” at any point and following on to journalism or somehow make money out of your efforts in blogging?
    4. What are your reading habits like? What are your favourite blogs/sites?
    5. Is there a specific topic that you will not blog about? Why?

You can choose to answer any or all questions posed above, the more the better. However; as we only have 90 minutes (interspersed with eating) and that we anticipate 15 – 20 people to attend, maybe I suggest that everyone limit their presentations/talks to no more than 2 – 3 minutes each? We can of course carry on discussing these topics at Fred’s after dinner if you are attending.

9.45+ Fred’s residence to sample some Belgian hospitality and more discussion and intermingling.

    Well, it looks like we’re not going to be able to join in the festivities this evening after all. The day looked good for everything but studio time didn’t go real well today and Hashim has to get 6 songs done by Sunday. I’m really sorry. We were looking forward to meeting everyone. I really hope there will be a “next” time. I hope all of you have a wonderful time.

    No problem, we understand.

    The next bloggers’ gathering is going to be on April 6th and you both are more than welcome to join us.

    We won’t be able to make that dinner meeting either. We’ll be in the States and, am afraid to say, but won’t be thinking of you guys one single bit! 😉 But… do not forget us the next time around!

    Well enjoy your trip.. I’m sure it will cost you just a little less than your phone bills! Thank goodness for RadioShack! 😉
