Well I won’t fool you on April fools day but I’ll share with you my foolish observations on blogging in Kuwait:
- Why is almost everyone anonymous?! Most Kuwaiti blogs I encountered are. In a random sample 90% of Kuwaiti blogs are anonymous –true identity of author not available or disguised- while for international blogs only 30% are anonymous (yes I made this up but I am guessing it’s true and it’s April fools day so I can make stuff up!). Why are we –yes me included- hiding our identity? I understand why some would but what about the rest? For me I blame it on herd mentality –I followed the rest! Maaaaaaa’ :p
- Why do we blog during office/school hours? After running extensive regression analysis on blogging habits in Kuwait, I can say with 95% level of confidence that 60% of blogging (writing and reading) happens during office/ school hours, 25% late evening/night and the remaining 15% in between (again foolish statistics but my point stands nevertheless). What does this say about our work ethics?! And most blogs tout reform! I know a good place to start..
Have a foolish day!
