A Blog from Amman, Jordan, Online Since 2004.


It’s a sad yet exciting experience moving to a new home. You might find this new home stark as it’s still not completely furnished- there a few paintings that still need hanging, many boxes that need unpacking, and a few plugs that don’t work yet. But it’s in livable condition- there’s fresh content as often as I can serve, and warm water.

That has been home for the past two years, and I have grown to love Blogger. It saw growth, love, fights, stupidity, and a whole ton of art. Unfortunately, I’m afraid it doesn’t fit my things anymore, and I found myself having to move out. That house will stay open, but it will get dusty with the days.

There are new keys, your old keys will open an old house now.

Please update your address books, it’s rude to lead people to an empty house!

Enjoy your stay!


Real blog!

  1. Non-Blogging

    Congrats for the new home! I like the new design although it’s somewhat hard to get used to after months spent virtually at your old home. But I’ll get used to it it as I’ve gotten used to all the other new homes in the blogosphere.

    And what a beautiful introduction you made to your new location. Really inspiring and innovative.

  2. As it smells as a new house should, it still needs some more “red” Roba :D and I can hear the echo of my voice.

    Good luck with the rest of the work
