I’m TouchFREE …

leave a comment »

Well, if you follow, you’ll notice I haven’t been posting anything lately. The last couple of weeks were very hectic; my graduation project delivery – Touchwork!
It’s really weird that I post easily during the final exams, and I just couldn’t do that during the graduation project final weeks. LOL.

Anyway, I’m back! Now, I’m free, graduated, and currently unemployed.
Await new posts .. and stay tuned .. 😀

My Blog on VerveEarth BETA

leave a comment »

I happened to have another blog on blogspot, “//untitled ..”, but I decided to settle here and I’m importing my old posts in the mean time.

Today, I received this email ..

Alaa,

Your blog //untitled .. caught our attention. I’m the founder of a recently launched startup for bloggers. We are searching the internet for the world’s blogs by geography, and we found yours for Egypt. I would like to invite you to our site which plots the content of the internet on an interactive map of the world. VerveEarth is an entirely new way to surf the net. It shows spatial and geographic connections that a blog search engine could never reveal.
The site is www.VerveEarth.com. Once on board, you can easily claim your blog a place in the VerveEarth world. The site is free to use and a way to drive new traffic to your blog. If our vision resonates with you, please give us a mention or add our widget to your blog. Please see our FAQ for any questions, and we welcome your feedback. The VerveEarth team will make a timely reply.
www.VerveEarth.com

Kind Regards,
Clayton Brown
CEO  |  VerveEarth.com

So, I decided to give it a try, I have just registered on their website. I discovered that I was one of the very first to join from Egypt. They incorporated Google Maps to serve their purpose – mapping around blogs geographically. I also added their badge (It says I’ll be rewarded, we’ll see 😀 )

Blog me or blog me not?!

leave a comment »

Well, at least I finally decided to settle for wordpress rather than blogspot – I just felt more comfortable here!

I always admired the ‘blogging’ concept; It always provided an open window into the blogger’s closed space – whether that space was their thoughts, feelings, experiences, work, whatever! But I also realized that it needs huge determination to stick to that .. which is something I don’t have at the moment! Unfortunately, my life-style and pace prevent me from committing myself to such a thing ..

A dear friend of mine has taken a photo of me that really encouraged me to give blogging another shot .. Perhaps also the facts of being sick and in the middle of my final exams are good reasons, too!

Either ways, we’ll see …
