The first blog I ever heard of was Where is Raed? but these days, when I want to read Iraqi writings I start with Healing Iraq and follow those links.
The person who told me how to start a blog was Homeschool Mum so I was very pleased to see she had linked to this blog! I have arrived!
JM actually moved me to the point of asking for advice in beginning blogging by posting a message to a list I'm on. I think JM was the 1st person who viewed my 1st attempt when I was a shy newbie.
Now I'm trying to get my friends to join us.
