As much as new media is experiencing an explosive growth in Lebanon, print/traditional media still reigns supreme. Someone once left a comment on my blog claiming that Lebanon has the most local publications per capita in the entire world! While I have yet to verify this, it really doesn’t surprise me. Walk into any bookstore and the amount of local publications for sale is truly staggering!
That being said, it’s really nice to see local magazines like RAGMAG and Communicate taking an interest in the Lebanese blogosphere and giving us “print time” so to speak. I want thank RAGMAG (@RAGMAGLebanon) and Liliane from Lebanon Aggregator (@lebagg) for introducing a permanently monthly column dedicated to the Lebanese blogosphere..and for featuring my blog this month. Really, I feel so thankful to be alongside some of the best bloggers in the sphere..Rami of Plus 961, Sietske of Sietske in Beirut, and Marie who contributes to The Cube.
It’s so funny blogging about a column that features blogs! When online goes offline, goes back online! 🙂

I feel so honored to have made this list! And it couldn’t have come at a better time.. My blog turns 1 on Friday! Thank you to all of you who voted for my blog, you have no idea how happy this makes me! I feel so honored, and so happy to be a part of the Lebanese blogosphere. 😀
I’m going to repost @funkyozzi’s post “Results of the “‘Top 10 blogs in Lebanon” survey. Here it is:
I launched this survey for what the Lebanese reader thinks are the top 10 blogs in Lebanon ins his/her opinion almost two weeks ago. I got 49 responses in total. There were 85 different blogs voted, but 47 of them had only 1 vote.
Please note that this is basically a survey shared mostly on twitter, and this does NOT reflect the Top 10 most “viewed” Lebanese blogs, as the results are different from what I got from the survey.
And the end result is the following, and the blogs are written in order:
I really like how Communicate Magazine features Lebanese bloggers in all of their issues..Congratulations to Darine, Assad, and the folks behind Blog Baladi for being featured in this month’s issue!!
