“Meet Oman’s Bloggerati” – Y Magazine

ImageY-Magazine (“Pulse of Oman”) y-logo did a nice question/answer write-up with 7 bloggers in the sultanate and I was honored to be numbered among them! 🙂

Check it out here: http://www.y-oman.com/2014/03/meet-omans-bloggerati.  Other bloggers featured include Eliza Richardson of Pumpkin Polar Bear,polarpumpkinbearFreddie Sayers of Muscat Mutterings,muscatmutterings

Heather Duncan of the Duncan Adventures,theduncansadventuresShurooq al Haremi of Mademoiselle Shosho,mademoiselleshoshoDahlia Al Riyami of Aisheleqtta (or “What’s Happening”)WhatsHappeningand last (but definitely not least!) Maurizio Monte of Oman Collective Intelligence.OmanCollectiveIntelligenceHere are the questions I was presented with and my responses which were a bit longer than the other bloggers:AndyinomanI’ve scanned and published the write-ups here because their online material does not look exactly like it does in printed form. Be sure to check out the original post (words by Penny Fray, Noor Hyder and Shishira Sreenivas) as it also includes an intro about the importance of blogs in today’s world, instructions on how to write a blog and this short text about not being afraid to take a risk by fashionista and blogger, Aziza Al Bahlani of the blog Haus of Ziia:dont be afraid to take a riskOne of the best things about being featured in Y Magazine was meeting up with Jerzy Wierzbicki who is responsible for the magazine’s photography.JerzyI have been a huge fan of Jerzy’s ever since he started working for Y Magazine 7 years ago.  His photography and write-ups of different spots around the sultanate and great trips for travelling are highly recommended. (Here are some of them listed on Y Magazines website archives for “Cars and Outdoors”.)  Some of the destinations he’s described are so remote and unknown that he has actually been responsible for naming certain spots in Oman! Thanks for sparing some time to chat about your adventures, Jerzy, even though you were so busy.

I really hope they do a 2nd edition of “Oman’s Bloggeratti” as there are so many wonderful bloggers I’ve met here and so many great blogs to follow. Blogs that I think would make for a great 2nd edition would be Wanda in Oman, Debi Brown of Notes Home, Geoff O’Dell of Rogue and Peasant Slave (but needs to blog more!), How to Live like an Omani Princess (one of the oldest and most popular blogs in Oman), Rummy (of Merge Fm) and her blog, Rummy’s Scribblings (who is currently on her way to Antartica!!!), Oman Coast, Salim Al-Harthy’s Photography BlogOmanly  (Blog on Tourism), and Susan Al Shahri of DhofariGucci (Yes, she is no longer secretive of her identity!).

What are some other blogs in the sultanate that you think should get more press?!
