The Lebanese Code: Facts and Figures

Dear Lebanon

I think it is time to summarize the blog's situation so far.
  • With about 30 posts written during a month period, I managed to get about 300 readers daily.
  • A bank who closed my account threatened to sue me.
  • I proposed we create : A consumer rights organization, a restaurant rating website, and an About Lebanon section on the blog.
  • We got a review from Mr. Connor Coyne, an American blogger who reviews blogs. The Lebanese Code was one of the 4 blogs out of 100 which he recommended for reading.
While I liked all of your comments, I consider this one important because it is from a foreigner who knows little about Lebanon. Here is what he had to say:

My name is Connor Coyne and I was referred to your blog through Globe of Blogs.
I'm intrigued by your stories of life in Lebanon, and am going to link to you. I have a limited understanding of your country and culture, but am excited to learn more. You relate anecdotes in a way that is poignant, engaging, and is a pleasure to read. Even though I am currently reading with little familiarity, your writing is evocative, and I feel like I can relate.

Although I am not writing lately, I can assure you that I will work harder in order to continue what I started with this blog.
Between my work and applying to graduate schools, I have too much on my mind.
I'll keep on posting weekly until the daily inspiration comes back in the near future.

Thank You

Z Lebanese

Thanks for the link, though I think you do me too much credit. You get more visitors by a factor of 6. ;)

But I'm happy to have this contact, and am excited to follow your work.
