- not my real name. Why? I run a well known Arab company and blogging lets me say what I really think without worrying about who is reading. I am an Iraqi who has lived nearly all my life in London. I feel blogs give people a small snapshot into the worlds of ordinary people from their front door, which the media cannot. Without blogging you would only ever see the journalists side of the picture.
