Blogging = Nonsense or what ?

This story happened even after the bloggers meeting

I use my blog URL as a suffix to any nickname I use on MSN messenger.
Here is a small part of a conversation I had yesterday with a friend of mine (Abed) :

abed says:

Blogging (A new level) - http://nadershnoudi.blogspot.com says:
what ?

abed says:
btosrod seret 7ayatak kol yoom!!!!

abed says:
ya 3ammi nas fadieh

abed says:
what is blogger by the way?

Translation:
Abed astonishingly wondering if I am writing my everyday life details on the web.Then he says that it is for people with lots of free time (he is making fuun of it) :And ends it by "The Ultimate Question" : What is a Blog or Blogger ?

I will not comment further on this but when I am asked for the meaning of a BLOG or what is a blog, I have two answers :

1.
Your blog is whatever you want it to be
2. I give them this link - I use this when I believe that the best way to understand what is a blog is by seeing one

Blog not Blo3 guys :)

Hi Nader,
That story about your friend is really funny and so true. I experience that a great deal with family members who critisize anything new or different without knowing what it really is all about.
Keep up the blogg!

As Linda said many people don't simply accept new ideas. And although I'm a blogger myself, I agree with "Abed" on 1 thing: it needs free time, specially if you want it to be a successful one. As for exposing your personal life on the web, I guess it all depends on the blogger himself. Point is, "a blog is what you want it to be" :) Finally, Blogs in the Arab world are relatively new. So don't get tired of explaining, it's normal :)

Ok.. for some reason my comments are not appearing on your blog. I don't remember yesterday's comment though so oh, well.
But yeah, blogging needs plenty of free time and the patience. I'm glad you've lately become an active blogger I really think that blogging is a great way to get to know someone :)

Lol! Blo3. Interesting translation. I don't think my friends know what a blog is either. It's sad. To me, a blog is basically a place where I can let out all my mental junk and a place to post pictures and objects that inspire me.
