  1. The person I nurtured and introduced to blogging comes of age even though her first effort, di cavoli e di re, no longer exists despite many of us linking to it.

    Here’s hoping that she includes “never delete your old blog,” in the presentation and has learned from that experience. Anyway, CRRC Armenia now has a new blog:

    http://crrcam.blogspot.com/

    There’s also the main CRRC blog from Georgia at:

    And of course, Gohar’s personal blog which I hope she won’t delete in the future is at:

  2. Just one thing, though. They really should consider using WordPress,preferably installed on their own servers, which is a far more advanced blogging tool than blogspot, but anyway.

  3. Myrthe, thanks for posting the announcement :))))

    Onnik, I did mention about never deleting blogs (just for you), to which my audience reacted with big “Why?” I think I managed to convience them not to do it unless they have a very good reason 😉

  4. You’re welcome! I’m curious to hear how things went and even more curious to find out if your presentation will have convinced anyone to start blogging. I don’t know if you blogged about it – I am just quickly checking my email after two days without internet and I just noticed I have over 800 unread items in my feed reader 8(. But I’d be interested to hear more about the event.

  5. I didn’t blog about it, no. But we can talk about it when we meet 🙂 As for getting people to blog I’ll keep my eye on Armenian blogosphere 😉
