The year 2005 was a very important year for the Tunisian blogosphere, with the number of bloggers growing amazingly and quickly.
A Tunisian blog directory and aggregator were launched, we started having our regular monthly meetups, a Tunisian blog service was created; and the first building blocks of a vibrant blogger community were put in place.
Towards the end of 2005 and the beginning of this year, the number of blogs is still rising, with an even quicker pace. And it looks like 2006 is shaping up to be the year of the Tunisian blogosphere.
Karim has put up a list of the things he hopes to see happening in the Tunisian blogosphere this year; I thought that was a great idea, and I thought I’d share my vision and hopes for this year too.
– to get to spread blogging even more between Tunisians.
– to get more Tunisian bloggers from outside the capital.
– to see some new bloggers outside the average age fork (20s, 30s).
– all bloggers actively try to spread blogging between the people they know.
– we see the creation of more professional theme specific blogs.
– some public or famous Tunisian figures take up blogging.
– we see more diversity and more different profiles among new Tunisian bloggers.
– some more creative blog-centric projects start popping up in Tunisia.
– to see more coverage about local stories and events in blogs.
– more photos are taken and some photologs are created.
– to see Tunisian bloggers becoming more active in the international blogging scene.
That’s what came to mind right now. I’m sure I can come up with a lot more if I think more about it.
I wish that all our hopes for the Tunisian blogosphere start coming true this year.
