I was supposed to do my 2009 favorites in 2009 but what can I say, I can never conform to any deadlines or rules, rules and deadlines are for sissy’s.
So I am going to do it starting today. And by starting today there could be more on the way, or not.
Today I will tell you about my favorite blogs of 2009:
1) Driven by Curiosity by Madas. (http://madas.jordanplanet.org/)
Love her subjects. Love her style. Love her writing.
And to top things off she has multi-talents.
Here are some of my picks:
An experience of a girl on the streets of Amman
Inheritance uncles and daughters
Why knowledge of HIV prevention is not about to spread any time soon
Why don’t men break the umbilical cords that attach them to their mothers?
2) Southern Muslimah. (http://southernmuslimah.blogspot.com/)
Once I got hooked on her blog in 2009 she decided to “Exit the stage“. Bummer but I wish her all the best.
I find her style very relate-able and calming, I enjoyed reading her posts.
My mind as five star five subject (My answer is yes you can and please do :) )
A poem on Saturday
Gone to the dogs
Pass the fox you angry raisin (Still makes me laugh, hahahaha)
3) Waiter Rant (http://waiterrant.net/)
Waiter turned blogger turned published author. He has amazing talent when it comes to writing.
I was reading him before he published his first book he was an anonymous blogger who basically ranted about being ,well , a waiter. Pretty interesting and funny stuff. But once he got published and was on Oprah his writing transformed and became much much more. I really enjoy his writing.
The Eyes Have It
The Last Face
4) Violence Unsilenced (http://violenceunsilenced.com/).
This blog is heavy duty. About twice a week a woman shares her story of abuse whether physical, sexual or verbal.
These are the stories of the survivors. I really hope women in similar situations read it and get inspired to do something.
5) 7iber. (http://www.7iber.com/)
I love me some citizenship media.
This year 7iber really took off and blossomed. The variety of the subjects , the quality of stories are pretty remarkable.
Abused, Discriminated Against and Labeled as the Enemy
A Legal Framework Against Sexual Violence
Discriminating Law; Legalizing Injustice
مقالة مصورة: داخل مركز إصلاح وتأهيل الموقر
Updated: Here are some honorable mentions:
. The Mom Slant. (http://www.themomslant.com/). Very well thought out articles (posts) I really enjoy her analysis.
. Girl Gone Child. (http://www.girlsgonechild.net/) Such poetic writing. She makes motherhood magical.
. Momversations . (http://www.momversation.com/) . Here you have a bunch of moms who bring up a subject and talk about it on camera. I really enjoy the different points of view and subjects.
