Kuwait Times – A Blogger’s Diary

I got an email with a link to an interesting article in Kuwait Times regarding bloggers. The writer has written her opinion which seems to have a narrowed outlook towards bloggers. She praises blogs which show a relative and useful information regarding Kuwait, or have some specific use. Those are acceptable blogs, but blogs that are about a person’s personal life then she categorizes that as “Diaries in disguise” and they write information about themselves that “even their own mothers don’t want to hear about”. I think that blogs came out as a persons personal view point to things in their personal or business life, or something of that nature. Recently blogs have grown in numbers in Kuwait, which I think is a good thing, it also connects people who wouldn’t have interacted previously. Maybe to each his own but I don’t really agree with the article.

  1. woah! just read the article, she really has it out for us bloggers eh?

    maybe she should start a blog to vent her trapped out anger out in, oh wait she just does it at Kuwait Times and gets paid to publish it for her 15 minutes of fame!

  2. Blogs started as personal diaries for people
    the name Blog is Contraction of weblog , you log stuff that happened to you or comment on stuff

    she / he can check the definition of blogs anywhere , personal blogs > all other type of blogs and that is around the world not in Kuwait only

    but as always , more Kuwaittimes idiocy

  3. Last time i checked, blogs were not crowding people’s door steps, begging for her to sift through, or popping on her screen to read and grace with her approval of content…

    Really who cares? Well, people who read it care! Whats it to u? Is it cutting from the time people should be reading ur articcles y3ni?!

    and she is talking about benefitial reading? Well i for one have not benifited from her article and it is published and every thing!!!!

  4. I guess journalists are not to blame. Everyone is looking for their 15 minutes of fame. And I guess if you don’t have talent, you write for Kuwait Times. I blame the readers of these newspapers. They are the ones that are encouraging these people. By picking up newspapers, subscribing, and emailing the writers, they give the journalists the illusion that what they are writing is actually important.

  5. K.theKuwaiti is spot on. I fully agree. It’s always the audience and the market’s demand that dictates what’s available.

  6. LLOOLL! K-the-Kuwaiti and Bu Yousef, I love reading the newspapers. Sometimes I learn something, sometimes it is hidden in the next-to-the-last paragraph, and sometimes, they are hands down hilarious.

    Everyone has an opinion . . . imagine having to come up with a defensible opinion two or three times a week. . . :-(

  7. Walla she’s the loser out there LOL! She should stop writing her lame ass views. If we decide to write about how we just chopped that tomato and made it into a salad, it’s up to us. Ugh cowface :s

  8. i read the article

    its pretty funny..

    cz id love to know why SHE thinks her opinion matters ?

    or what she regards as “better taste” or “beneficial” should be held to account.

    id also love to know where she got her psychological analysis from.

    yeah i think its pretty important for people to know what i found between my toes.

    kaifi. and if people come and comment of their own accord kaifhum!

    What a stupid article and a stupid writer. ‘Pyschologically speaking’? What does that even mean? Sounds like she needs to go back to school and learn something other than just spewing negativity. She’s probably just jealous because no one reads her blogs or her articles.
