What Does it take to write a good blog?!

December 30, 2013 Leave a comment

A friend of mine asked me last week, where have you been ?! you don’t blog that much ?!

I replied by telling him that I already blogged the vCloud automation series, he told me it isn’t that much blogging.

It is fair comment from him anyway , I did about 10 to 15 blogs last year, and I haven’t written any blog since July, but what does it take to write a good blog ?!

It took me 4 months to write a good blog I work hard to provide original contents and posts, I don’t blog novice How Tos, I can do that, but my readers know that when I blog, it is something series.

I didn’t blog since last July because I was heavily focused on vCloud Automation project that produced the 5 parts series (4 published so far); to do it properly I had to stop and learn vCloud Director and Orchestrator inside out, then I had to learn heavy JavaScripting because vCloud Orchestrator automation requires JavaScripting. Then spent 2 month developing the solution then re-enhance it for public reading, asking for more feedback from my community that leaped the automation to another level when they asked med to include reading data from CSV hence you got the blog series.

It is easy to comment or cross reference other posts, but I don’t, I provide my readers with genuine and original ideas and technical material; I believe this is what the community expects from me.

So, are you gonna wait another 4 months for the other blog series ?! maybe clip_image001

– Gain some muscle back. < Started

– pushing my wife into the decoration BA.

On Career:

MBA – But I don’t think I will go for it this year, maybe in 2014.

– Complete the CCEE < Will book the Exam Next Month

– Go for the CCIA.

google celebrates Abu Rayhan El Biyruni’s Birth #Google #Arabia #Egypt #Qatar

September 4, 2012 Leave a comment

I was surprised today with Google’s home pages on .eg and .qa domains “I believe it will be the same for all arabic domains” with the celebration of his birth.

He was a famous scientist and known with his findings and research in math and astronomy and physics “apparently he didn’t catch up the cloud hype Open-mouthed smile back in our golden era.

Birthday of Abu Rayhan Al-Biruni

Al-Biruni is regarded as one of the greatest scholars of the medieval Islamic era and was well versed in physics, mathematics, astronomy, and natural sciences, and also distinguished himself as a historian, chronologist and linguist.[7] He was conversant in Chorasmian, Persian, Arabic, Sanskrit, and also knew Greek, Hebrew and Syriac. He spent a large part of his life in Ghazni in modern-day Afghanistan, capital of the Ghaznavid dynasty which ruled eastern Iranian lands and the northwestern Indian subcontinent. In 1017 he traveled to the Indian subcontinent and became the most important interpreter of Indian science to the Islamic world. He is given the titles the “founder of Indology” and the “first anthropologist”.[8] He was an impartial writer on custom and creeds of various nations, and was given the title al-Ustdadh (“The Master”) for his remarkable description of early 11th-centuryIndia.[7] He also made contributions to Earth sciences, and is regarded as the “father of geodesy” for his important contributions to that field, along with his significant contributions to geography.

Your Social Presence and Community responsibilities in relation to scams

September 3, 2012 Leave a comment

Social Media usage is increasing dramatically, it is a fact and no one can deny it, even a lot of corporates encaurages Social Media use during work with a lot of recent studies that proves major losses within corporates that ban the use of SM.

But with increased use of SM usage there are lot of security threats that comes within that, a lot of recent scam messages appeared lately on Facebook, and last week I started noticing same scam messages on LinkedIn as well.

not mentioning the security threat associated with those scams for stealing your personal infomration, there are 2 factors captured my attention, 1) your social image, 2) your community responsibilities.

A lot of us uses the social media to enhance his image and demonstrate his expertise within the perimeter of his friends/colleagues and cross the barriers to reach other organizations and professional through out the world, but what will happen to this image and efforts when your friends or connections see you sharing sexual contents, posting inappropriate contents or worst inviting them to do the same or visit specific page that displays those contents.

Of course you are not the one who is posting or sending those messages, it is the damn scam who tricked you to click somewhere and “baaam” all of your contacts and connections are receiving these messages, but don’t you see the risk?.

What will happen if you are trying your best to be a celebrity within your fields and your fans, followers, friends and worst boss gets those, all of your efforts will be gone in vain.

What will happen if you are considered a trustworthy person and started sending those messages and posting those links and your friends and followers started to get infected as well because they trusted you.

In my opinion, there is a specific but unmeasured responsibility for your usage for social media either for fun or professionally, you should be aware that not every message you can post and not every received link you can click, again this is not measured but definitely it is there and you should be aware of that.

I am posting this to all of my friends who are unintentionally sending and posting those spam messages, because it damages your social image and online credibility.

stay safe…
