I have heard of blogging for years. I have been ignoring it, partly because of being busy with my studies and partly because of the natural of fear of new things.
Although I have a reasonable experience in establishing and running a medical Yahoo group (Saudi Doctors) since 1999 with 600 members currently, I am not quite sure why I have been hesitant to invade the blogging world. Additionally, I have had established a website, which is currently on hold for restructuring and re-design, called MDArabia.com (hence the name of this blog), which deals with health care professionals, institutions and organizations in the Arab World, including a forum, job center, academic calendar, and specialty-based links among other things.
I guess the reason I am having the courage to get into the blogging heat is the interactivity behind it. Additionally, I thought of having all my posts in different forums, groups and mailing lists in one place to guide my thoughts and my future career plan.
For the coming few weeks, I will be posting few posts I submitted over the past few years. We will see how it goes from there.
