Saudi Jeans is 3 Years Old Today

Today marks the third anniversary of Saudi Jeans. Three years is probably not such a very long time of blogging. Dave Winer has been doing it for the past 10 years; Jason Kottke for 9. But for someone who has started blogging as a “fun experiment” I honestly did not expect myself to keep on doing that for this long. Surprisingly, I still enjoy writing on this blog and I truly believe this is the main reason why I keep on maintaining it. Of course, it is not always fun and games in Saudi blogland, and the blogosphere can be a tough, horrible place sometimes, but overall I can say that I’m somewhat satisfied with the experience so far.

Similar to last year, as my finals approach, I will be taking a break from the blog to focus more on my studies. I should be back in 3-4 weeks. I believe some more bloggers might also take similar breaks, though unannounced, so you can expect the local blogosphere to be queit for a while. Until then, you can dig in the archives at the end of this page to follow the evolution of Saudi Jeans over the years. I want to thank you all my dear readers, and I want also to thank anyone who helped me with my endeavors on the web.

    Khloud, yes, this is a well-known symptom of finalitis: I get creative in things that have nothing to do with school :-)

    Bandar, I would move to WP if you are willing to hook me up with a good design ;-)

    مبروك ال3 الأولى و للمزيد من السنين انشاءالله.
    عند قراءتي لتعليق بندر باللغة العربية
    فكرت للحظة…كيف لم يخطر على بالي أن أعلق بالعربي قبل الآن؟؟!؟
    على ذكر العربية أتمنى أن يأتي اليوم الذي نراك فيه تكتب بعض التدوينات بالعربي… أنت من العقول الشابة التي نحتاج لأن نسمع صوتها في الداخل وأن يكون صوتك و أفكارك في متناول الشباب السعودي عامة و ليس النخبة التي تستطيع أن تقرا أو تعبر عن نفسها باللغة الانجليزية فقط….
    هل نأمل في ذلك؟؟

  11. Entroy, I already have a blog in Arabic, but it is mainly about personal stuff. I have always said that I will at some point in the future start something like SJ in Arabic, but for the time being, SJ provides me with a better platform to express my opinions.

    Anon, thanks for the advice, here it is: SJ MyBlogLog Community.

  12. Many happy returns to your blog.
    You may now want to seriously think about going for those XXL slim fit designer denims.

  13. 3 سنين انجاز ! .
    غيرك سجل لأجل التسجيل و نسي الموضوع تماما هنا في بلوقر و غيره :)

    بهالمناسبة فاجأنا بأنك ستنتقل للورد بريس رجاءاً ..
    كل التوفيق نتمناه لك ..

  14. Hey, since you live in Saudia are looking for reforms. What do you think of apostates? In my view, its their personal right to divert away from Islam but what is pissing me off is their propaganda against Islam. If they start doing it, certainly Muslims will start fighting back by using Quranic verses which talks about infidels! A boundary line has to be drawn somewhere! What do you think of this issue? Just wanted to hear from some ‘reformist’ Saudi! Probably do an article on it?
