CONGRATULATIONS!!!!
Woooohhhhhooooo!!!!

In September last year I created up my first blog. At the time I didn't even really know what a blog was. It wasnt until I posted my first entry from Afghanistan in December 2006 that its took shape. At the time I didnt know that this was to become my main platform for communication to the 'outside world'.


What I have learnt is that a blog is a very effective means of communicating with a wide range of people. Not only is it easier to navigate than a website, but it is also a passive form of communication. All people have to do is scroll and read, its that simple.


The ease of sending a email with a link means people can check it out at the start of their day, in a lunch break or when they are meant to be working. My audience can pass the link onto who ever they want and they can also email me their friends addresses so I can add their address to my mailing list. (hint hint)


And the feedback has been great. I never realised that so many people read the whole damn thing. The most common response have been that it is informative, entertaining and with a equal balanced between the negative and positive aspects of life in Afghanistan. And thats all I ever aimed for it to be!


So to all my audience out there, I want to thank you for reading. Thank you for passing it onto your friends. And thank you for your feedback. Communication is the best platform for peace, I hope that my words and images might contribute towards that.....


stay tuned!
