BABA 2004

Well, as all participants probably know by now, the voting in BABA 2004 has been stopped due to some irresponsible actions of some irresponsible individuals.

I would like to thank our friend Haitham and Mahmood for creating the FIRST Arab Blogger Awards EVER! What happened does not make their efforts less, and does not mean they failed in any way.
It’s enough to point out that they have united an unbelievable number of Arab Bloggers, ones I never heard of, and ones that really deserve being known.

Actually, the taste of winning is great, I can’t deny that, but I never focused on that when I’m nominated in any awards, I’ve always looked for new people, wanted to know how other bloggers of other cultures think, what topics concern them, and things like that, because that’s what interests me in blogging, this is why I created this blog in the first place, I never created it to enter competitions. Knowledge, opening more doors to new blogospheres is what I consider the real profit… that’s why I believe BABA 2004, was a success.

Again, thank you Haitham and Mahmood for BABA 2004, looking forward to BABA for the years to come. And last but not least, my deepest appreciation to all those who voted for me in any category :)
