Bloggers in general have been suffering from the slowness and lack of development of blogger.com
AMMAN (PRWEB) March 26, 2006
A few months since launching its blogging service, Jeeran, the Arab web hosting community, is coming back with more breakthroughs and unprecedented growth in the blogging revolution in the Arab World at large. Jeeran's bloggers community has grown tremendously since the launch of the service, reaching a count of 13,000 blogs to date making Jeeran the largest blogging community in the region.
Blogging revolution in the Arab World has picked up quickly and in a manner that exceeded expectations. New bloggers are emerging on an hourly basis and well-established Arab bloggers are making the move to Jeeran, taking benefit of the quality of the integrated line of services that Jeeran provides to its members. Jeeran focuses on identifying the needs and demands of the Arab user and is the first to provide online services in a homegrown form with global standards.
"Bloggers in general have been suffering from the slowness and lack of development of blogger.com," says Laith Zraikat, Co-founder, and Director of Innovation of Jeeran. "Being a user-driven company and in response to the growing demand, we have developed a Migration Tool that allows the user to completely move his blog from blogger.com along with archives and comments to a new home on Jeeran. The move also gives them their own domain name, something not matched by many of the blogging services, while benefiting from all the integrated services that we provide which enable professionals to thrive and excel with their blogs" he added.
Being the largest bloggers community in the Arab World, Jeeran can closely monitor topics presented and discussed in the Arab blogosphere. Initial expectations stated that majority of Arab bloggers would concentrate on politics; being inspired by the region's current state, however; what Arab bloggers are showing goes against expectations.
"Many of the Arab bloggers do not like to be classified under one category; 24% of the total choose to categorize their blogs under Personal" says Omar Koudsi, Co-founder and president of Jeeran. "This allows them to state their opinions in many issues including but not limited to politics and social issues. In addition, many of our members are tech savvy, leading to 14% of our bloggers classified under Computer & Technology. Surprisingly, other categories follow with very close percentages shedding light on bloggers dedicating their writings to topics like arts, education & culture, religion & spirituality, and sports going against the odds and showing the whole world that Arab bloggers have interests that go beyond politics and entertainment" he added. "Of course Jeeran attracted some prominent journalists and politicians in the Arab world like Rashid Al Mudawwer (Moroccan Parliament Member), Mohammed Lachayeb (Moroccan Parliament Media Consultant), Tawfiq Al Rayyash (Bahraini Journalist), Batir Wardam (Jordanian Journalist and Environmental Activist) and that is just to name a few" he concluded.
With its line of focused and integrated service offerings (Website builder, Online Briefcase, Image Studio, Blogs), Jeeran proves that quality prevails over quantity when it comes to service offerings. Jeeran realizes that sophisticated users expect a service that is compatible with their advanced demands, at the same time is of global standards and presented to them in an easy format. With its large well-informed member base and innovative services, Jeeran has been the choice for Arab bloggers whether they were beginners or seasoned, just starting, or wanting to take their blogging experience to the next level.
