So here we start!

02/02/2010

Saudi Arabia is a country that gets a lot of attention around the world for many reasons. However, the Saudi citizens’ voice does not reach around the globe in a similar magnitude. This is a blog I am starting to present to the world more insights and perspectives of life in Saudi Arabia. The blog is titled “Alternative Saudi Voices”. The vision of the blog is to become one of the best available windows to life aspects, issues and dreams in Saudi Arabia.

The blog will be open to any Saudi who would like to contribute. I’ll be only the blog manager. Yet, I’ll not publish anything that calls for violence or hate. So if you are a Saudi who feels that you want to say something to the world regarding: 1) a regular day of your life in Saudi Arabia, 2) internal social and political issues or 3) international topics, then send me your blog to be published to: alternative.saudi.voices@gmail.com and it will be published as soon as possible.

I hope this blog will be one of the good sources for those who have many questions about life in Saudi Arabia.

    Good Idea Ahmed,
    I would suggest that you put this blog as a channel communication between Saudi who don’t speak English to all other world. So, I would say translating some of Saudi Arabic blog would really help to give new perspective to the rest of the world. Let me know if you need any help in that.

    Good luck


  7. Murtadha,

    For sure I’ll need real help regarding translating Arabic language blogs into English. You and Ayesh are the volunteers so far which is enough at the moment. We can try a good blog and inform the blogger of the idea then publish it if he/she is fine with that. Please feel free to select any blog in Arabic that you feel will be useful to be translated to English. We’ll be in touch soon insha’Allah.

    Really happy with your encouragement.

    For me, as an American living in Europe, this is a glimpse into a completely new world. Thank you for creating this forum, and all the best to you.


    • Zilch,

      I am glad that such new window to life and people of Saudi Arabia got your attention. I hope it will be a mean for people in the West to understand Saudi Arabia through the words of its own people. Keep coming back 🙂
