Syrian News Wire nominated for an award!

The Syrian News Wire, just four weeks old, has been nominated for the 2005 Best Arab Blog Award (BABA) in the Syria category.


Thank you very much to the anonymous person who nominated me last night (who are you?). It's a privilege to have such recognition, and to have readers who keep coming back to the site. Thanks too, to the readers who've left comments lately saying they find the site useful.

You can't vote yet, but you can have a look through all the nominated blogs. Voting will start towards the end of the year.

The nomination puts this site up against giants like Ayman's Damascene Blog and Joshua Landis's Syria Comment.

Hi, I'll be sure to visit your blog more often. Here are some pictures I took in old damascus last summers:


The guys at arablogger.com are doing a really great job. Sasa, wish you good luck and thanks for the compliment :)

Thanks Ayman! Good luck to you too.

Such a shame that the Syrian category in the 2004 awards was pulled!! Typical of us Arabs, we can't vote properly in anything! But hands up to Sabbah and Mahmood for organising it.
