While exams continue to disrupt a little the Libyan blogosphere both locally and overseas this week's post is dedicated to those Libyan bloggers who are ‘absent without leave’, we don't know why they stopped blogging and we miss them very much.
I'm sure most Libyan bloggers would join their voices to mine and ask them to come back or at least update us.
It is a strange fact how we become attached to our ‘virtual’ community and at one point it morphes into ‘our community’ and the internet becomes simply another means of communication.
The first blogger whose news I wish to know is : zizo , he stopped in March with this cryptic post :
“I am very thankful to that one of my ever best friends& the real dog& ayman ..for his help and sweet surprises that he keep getting to me all time & and even he has done a great mistake and did me wrong some day& even though ..I admit he is on e of few persons in this world who can understand me right…thank yo my homie..peace”.
The more mysterious one is Unfettered Swallow, although not a regular blogger he did update from time to time. However, this month he deleted everything and simply posted ” Sorry“.
Um Dania may be very busy with Dania, but hey not posting for the last two months? We need to know how is Dania !
Smokeyspice has been missing in action for six months, her political analysis and wit are greatly missed too.
The Lost Libyano's blog is no longer visible. I'm wondering if someone hacked it?
Controversial blogger Mindamir who writes in Arabic has not updated since February, I'm praying that he is OK.
Following his lesson on Fukuyama in April, Hafed has not been back, is he kept busy? or has he gone to study political science ? I do miss his satire.
Benghazeeya is still keeping me in suspense since March, so what happened has she gone to college in Libya ? Is she now married ?
Even dear Trabilsia has not been blogging for a while.
I'm sure my list is not comprehensive so if you know anyone else please tell us about him/her.
My advice to you all when you want to go on a hiatus or have writer's block take the lead from American Libyan's ‘Dealing with personal issues’ notification – at least don't leave us in the dark !
