I started this blog because it seemed like every class in my life last semester had some sort of requirement about it. Now, with no assignments, I found my voice was gone. Do I really have nothing to say?
Um, have you met me?
A month from now, insha’Allah, I will be in Beirut on a Lebanon Summer Fellowship (cultural immersion/travel) sponsored by the National Council on US-Arab Relations. My goal is to blog the entirety of the trip, from the pre-planning through my year following my return. Part of the fellowship is that we share the knowledge we gain over our 10 days in Lebanon with our communities. Well, with a blog, my community is anyone.
A few comments. VT’s WordPress site does not work well on the iPad. Creating links is a nightmare. Edits are equally problematic. I am using a Logitech keyboard I just got off Amazon to update this, and so far I really like it.
It is my goal to be constantly blogging and updating Twitter while I’m there. Follow my hashtags on Twitter (#lebanon2012, #LSF2012) to keep up with me in real-ish time.
To be 100% honest, though, I may have to migrate to official WordPress if this is going to work. This lack of editing could be a problem.
