I thought and thought… On what basis am I using the name of my village as my Blog’s URL? Some of the posts are about something in Smakieh. However, most of the remainder posts are about me. I am changing the Blog’s URL to: www.borninsmakieh.blogspot.com.
Here I am back again, the Blog URL is now changed. It took me a matter of seconds just to edit it. I have tried it in a new window, I typed: www.borninsmakieh.blogspot.com, it didn’t work the first time i did it, but the second time-moments after the second one. It worked.
I am keeping this blog to publish every thing that I think is related to where I come from. I will start by these documents, sorrowfully Arabic ones, about the history of not only Smakieh but also 2 of the villages surrounding it: Humud and Rashedah. In addition to a document about another village not close to Smakieh.
I shouldn’t forget to mention that I got those valuable documents form the PC of Mr. Fadi Hijazin. Much thanks to his brothers for letting me copy them. My thanks would surely go to the person who put them originally on that PC. I really think they are great.
Wish me luck, I finished University yesterday. Phew!
I am typing from the lab of our faculty.
I have been blogging for exactly 25 days. And till this moment, I have received zero comments! I am just wandering who is gonna be the first person to comment on any of my posts?! I admit that I need a lot of time and effort until my posts will be deserving a comment! However, I hope that someone might like or hate a one little thing and comment about it.
Will he be a from Smakieh? Will he even be a Jordanian? Will he be a male of female? An adult or a teenager? Will he write something meaningful or just a “Hi”? I don’t know! I like this quote by Albert Einstein, I can not copy it on my case, maybe you can! Can you?… For god sake someone make a comment… [ 🙁 ]
I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones. Albert Einstein
I’m very happy that I finally took the decision and started my own Blog… I tribute this to (Jack) whom I find by chance in his own Skypecasts today!
What did I learn today and must or will stay with me?
1- It is not important to have an accent when speaking English. What matters most is that you talk clearly and confidently so as the one whom you are talking with can understand you perfectly. [:)]
Although it might look simple to you, I believe that this very tiny lesson will relief me a lot.
2- (to be born with a silver spoon in your mouth) = to be the son or daughter of a very rich family. a sentence of my own: ‘John as well as Tom waste a lot of money on silly things. I believe that it is normal since both of them were born with silver spoons in their mouthes)…
This is all till 15:48.
