It seems day after day, week after week, this site keeps crossing milestone after milestone. With hits bordering the 50k mark, collaborations with other prominent Lebanese sites and organizations steadily growing and readership that never ceases to amaze, this blog has become one of the highlights of my daily life.
The things I get to do thanks to the blog force me to think of my readers while doing them. My press-pass and backstage access to Above & Beyond when they were in town is one of those very things I owe solely to the blog. That’s why when I was escorting Paavo and Jono to the Forum, I got 2 albums signed (one for myself of course, and one with the intent of giving away through the blog)
Without social media and social networking, and more specifically Facebook, I wouldn’t have been able to get the word out and spread what I had to share with my friends and networks. That is why the number of likes on Facebook mean a lot to me, and 1000 likes reassure me that the many hours spent on the blog and the persistence I have shown in running it, have truly paid off.
That’s why, for making me happy, I want to try to make you happy too. I ask of you to name one article or one thing on the blog that has, to some extent, had a positive effect on your life. Whether a laugh from the Fail Loubnan section, a good date after reading a movie/resto/club review, good music you got to entertain guests with or opinions on science and life which I might’ve helped you formulate after my painstaking journey to find out myself…
I will employ a method of selection that has proven very fruitful in the Goodwill Games competitions. The feedback will be on the page, and the one with the most likes (and hence the one people agree with the most) will get the CD!
Thanks for bearing the cheesiness with me. (Competition closes Sunday Noon)
