Who writes here?
Good question! Who writes here?
One of the first things I like to do when I come across a new blog is to find out a few, very basic things about the blogger. What’s their name? What do they do? Any interesting hobbies or skills they focus on? It really helps understand the writing if you know a little bit about the author rather than just having his or her initials, like “L R” or a pseudonym like “crazyblogger”!
My name is Ameera, a twenty-something Muslim girl based in Karachi, Pakistan. I’ve been blogging for a very long while now (started in 2005) and currently, this blog is going through a subtle but long-due renovation (read: reinvention) in style.
I also blog for MuslimMatters as part of a large team. It is an enriching experience in many ways and I highly recommend you check out the great stuff by bloggers and scholars there – and have a look at mine too *plugging*.
In the real world, I’m just about to be upgraded from “medical student” to “doctor” Insha’Allah (< what does this mean?) but medicine is just one of my interests. Instead of going into a boring, old-school description of things I’m into, I’ll make it quick and simple with these keywords…
Islam | religion | current affairs | food | cooking | medicine | photography | writing | relationships | parenting | kids | travel | jewelery | outdoors | music-free nasheeds | Hijab
