Why start now?

This is the beginning of my third year living in Qatar, and for the past few I have been debating: blog? no blog? I have erred on the side of caution and kept off the blogospheres, especially in light of recent actions taken against a range of people – professionals, students, and homebodies alike – for content posted on their blogs. This, in addition to the fact that I am a guest in someone else’s country, has kept me cautious. 

But now I wonder if that is actually the right decision. 

After all, am I not adult enough to realize this goes out to the entire world and is in fact, not my private diary? 

So here goes: a public forum about a non-Muslim, non-Arab, non-Arabic speaker living in the Middle East.

Live from Doha! It’s daily life in the desert…….

    Welcome to the world of blogging!

    When I started my blog three years ago I kept it anonymous. As you can tell, that didn’t last. Sometimes it does inhibit what I want to say, but generally it all seems to work out OK.
