Out and About in the Islamosphere and a Global Voice
Given that I have finished up my summer online coursework, 7 exams, finally obtained my license and will be heading off in a new direction come next week and not knowing whether or not I’ll have the time to blog let alone do any blog hopping – I spent a few days out in the Islamospere. Admittedly, how could I not since they have been so link loving to Let My Heart Be My Veil. It’s not that I don’t ever venture out into the Islamosphere but admittedly for over a year now I’ve mostly been a lurker with occasional comments here and there – and some of those ‘occasional’ comments I’m sure had the blog authors and their regular readers whishing I’d just shut up already.
First, I’d like to thank both TalkIslam.info and Muslimah Media Watch for linking to my review of A Jihad for Love – the post may not have many comments but at least it has exposure from these two wonderful sites – also thank you to all of those that have been emailing the review around (yes, I can figure that out) and while there may be no conversation taking place on my blog – the review has not gone ignored. I highly recommend both of these sites – so do your thing .. bookmark them, blogroll them, add them to your reader.
Love Jihadi has reposted my review at his own site and come October he’s going to have to post my review about whether he is truelly post-queer. So, Mr. “I’m so over it” – hope you are up to the challenge. You’ll just have to visit his site to figure that one out but don’t assume – you know how it goes, when you assume you make an … .
Make sure you read this post of Hamdi’s (another Bosnian) who explains the difference between ‘muslim’ and ‘Muslim’ – so spot on – and please everyone encourage him to keep up his blog posts with at least an occasional post 🙂
Umar Lee has two posts up related to Bosnia – one on the International Criminal Court (Owen – this one’s for you to get on) and one titled Thank You Bosnian Mujahudeen in which I am being a royal pain in the comments section.
Those of you that have stumbled upon this blog because of ‘ilahije’ which is my number one post of all time – now exceeding 2100 views in almost a years time – please visit Musical Chef’s catalog of Bosnian Musicians and keep an eye on her site as I think she is going to post them more frequently than I do.
A few people over at Global Voices have been referencing my thoughts in regards to Bosnia. So for those of you that are looking for more blogging voices in regards to this region – Global Voices is rich in links for you (I found the Yakima Gulag Literary Gazette here)- please check out Global Voices’ Bosnia Hercegovina Region. I’d like to thank Veronica Khokhlova and Elia Varela Serra who both frequently link to my blog.
I guess this sounds like the death of Let My Heart Be My Veil but it’s not. I’m not quite sure how often I will be able to post – maybe I’ll be able to post even more during lunch hours but I think the time for actually commenting on comments and visiting other blogs is going to suffer if the past month is any sign of what to expect, plus I am going back and putting effort into The Equality Project once again (I could use some help – hellloooooo anyone out there that has time to devote to this let me know).
