Congratulations to Big Pharaoh and Mohammed of From Cairo With Love for their appearance on NPR today (audio is also archived on the site). NPR correspondent Eric Weiner (who I knew in Tokyo) did a nice job mixing the sound of these two bloggers reading some of their posts, I thought.
We link to both of these guys a lot. I hope they'll keep on posting… Mohammed sounds like he's got a bit of blog burnout, judging from his latest post, which is understandable. It's hard to find the right balance between blogging about life and events – and actually being engaged in them. We don't want to put pressure on him or anything, but hope he'll find the inspiration to keep talking to us, and sharing with us how the world looks through the eyes of an Egyptian blogger. We are interested and we do care.
