During today’s episode of Compunet World (3alam el Compunet), a Kuwaiti TV tech show, Manar Al-Hashash began her usual segment by answering some viewers’ questions. Someone had inquired about the term “blog” and she briefly explained online journals, then went on about how easy it is to visit Jeeran.com and create one for yourself.
Wait a minute; what happened to the more popular services?! Oddly enough, Manar didn’t mention neither of Blogger or WordPress, and I would expect someone as computer-literate as herself to be aware of such tools. After all, the show has always been about the best technologies and services out there. Could it be that her choice of Jeeran.com was a deliberate move to make the topic around the Kuwaiti blogging community all the more avoidable? :o
