On Jordanian Blog Aggregators

I think given our country’s population, plus the number of Jordanian bloggers, that we really, desperately, direly, need yet another aggregator.

Yes, there, I said it.

Sue me.

Another aggregator.

Preferably either named after a Jordanian blogger or has something Jordanian about it.

Maybe a flag.


A flag would be nice.

It’ll, you know, show how united we are and stuff.



  • Don’t even get me started man. I still can’t understand this weird obsession with people trying to control something; we’re very authoritarian by nature, and that truly scares me.

    Plus why does everything have to turn into a small community? Ye3ni isn’t Amman already tiny enough?! Now the whole blogosphere is tiny. Tayyeb what brought this on? Don’t tell me there’s another aggregator in town.

  • Pheras: hmm, I don’t think anything specific brought this on. Just a general observation. What you related in the first few lines of your comment was more or less along the lines of what I was thinking (amongst other things)

    Moey: lol πŸ˜€

  • Aggregators are another form of human gatherings … something that has been formed since the dawn of hsitory in different forms … if you want a sole aggregator why not call for a one-state world ?

    i dont know why am so thinkful today … maybe i am dying …

    and its three spaces not four πŸ™‚

  • Mazz: that same argument was made by the backstreet boys upon release of their latest album πŸ˜€

    Sana: glad you like it πŸ™‚

    Isam: “if you want a sole aggregator why not call for a one-state world” you mean like one human race? that doesn’t sound like such a bad idea! πŸ˜‰

  • Salam Nas, I don’t think you need another regular aggregator. Maybe what you need is a SocialRank powered site for Jordanian blogs.

    Eg: Sudan.DailyVoices.com

    Check this and you’ll know what I’m talking about.

    If you want, I can ask them to launch one for Jordan asap. πŸ™‚

  • Please don’t hesitate to let me know. I’m dead serious. I’m sure, they’d be more than happy to do it.

    The volume of Jordanian blogs is large. It will save you a lot of headache when trying to look for the day’s hot posts.

    Oh and 3eid Mubarak in advance. πŸ™‚

    Loving your blog.

  • I think what we need are “thematic aggregators” where specific themes can be categorised like politics, social issues, culture, technology, etc..
    I have to say that it is becoming a huge undertaking to follow all the Jordanian blogs in one aggregator. I’d rather follow 10-15 blogs that are listed in my favourite instead of more than 200. The problem is that most blogs tackle more than one issue but please forgive me I do not want to go through 60 personal stories in one aggregator to get to one substantial post. A lot of bloggers, excuse me have a lot of self esteem in writing personal stories that are neither funny or useful so why not out them under one categories of personal rants taht will be visited by readers interested in personal stories. The same goes for all of you who hate boring political blogs like mine and who do not need to be tortured with reading their titles each and every day.

  • hehehe I like the piaster picture!

    about aggregators, I couldn’t care less. aggregators without purpose are like spicy zinger only not spicy …or something like that.

    Batir has a point, but we don’t have that many blogs or posts enough to run theme or category based aggregators. i’d say the cost of having them is not justified but then again who does a business-analysis for a website.

  • Drima: 3eid Mubarak to you too buddy!

    Batir: you make a good point but so does Shaden, in terms of the numbers.

    asoom: we all have our own definitions. i used to call the rss feed icon that ‘orange box’ πŸ˜€
