Blog About Jordan Day, an initiative started in 2008 by Qwaider, has begun. The day designated for all bloggers, Jordanian or not, to write about Jordan in any shape or form, is marked on March 12th of every year.
In the words of the blogger behind the idea, Qwaider says:
“It's that time of year again. March is the month of Blog About Jordan day. March 12th to be exact. This year it's going to be even more spectacular than last year.”
A Facebook group for the day states:
This is an initiative to start something that will hopefully last for years to come. March 12th of Every year will be called: Blog about Jordan day.
A live coverage on the day is also available here.
123-Jordan, or BAJD, garnered a lot of attention last year both online and offline, as a local radio station contacted several bloggers to interview them on the occasion. It remains to be seen if the 2nd BAJD will be as successful. We'll keep you posted!
Thank you very much for the lovely post. It’s much appreciated
Currently reading ‘The Lion Of Jordan” by Avi Shlaim only 100 pages in but already clear that conflicting aims and imperatives esp between Jordan and Egypt helped to produce and perpetuate the seemingly endless tragedy of the Palestinians.
