I stopped writing in StartupQ8 during the last 9 months. Basically since I moved to Dubai!! I always felt bad about it, but I focused to write in Wamda so that a bigger audience can benefit from what I write. When I write in Wamda I always felt conscious of what I wrote. First of all, I know that people all over the Middle East will read it, so I spent lots of time to make it perfect (that means more work and less frequent posts). Second, when I write in Wamda I always felt that I not only represent myself, but Wamda as well, which put some pressure on me, so I can’t express my feelings freely. Moreover, I always write my articles like telling a story, that doesn’t always meet the standard at Wamda, so I need to change my writing style sometimes as well (even though Wamda always gave me freedom to write whatever I want).
I love writing in Wamda and I’ll continue writing there (if they allow me to do so), and I’ll never forget how they helped me in the early days of StartupQ8. Without them I wouldn’t have the courage to do the first startupQ8 event and would probably shutdown StartupQ8 blog long time ago.
Here are some articles I wrote in Wamda that you probably missed:
In short, I still love writing in Wamda, but I’ll start writing more often here in StartupQ8. So I’m back if anyone care (other than my sister).
