It’s a small world.

Recently I was surprised to meet Naysan Naraqi who works on Baha’i Blog.  He was visiting Australia and came up and introduced himself at the wedding of some mutual friends.

It was great to meet someone who is just as passionate about the powers of blogging.

He asked me what I thought of Baha’i Blog, which I love.   He asked me if it was a useful and interesting site.  Well, it sure is.  I especially love the features on musicians and artists, but also there are many well written articles on topical issues.  He was then very encouraging of my own projects.

I love to interact with people of any background, cultural and religious, but also love catching up with my Baha’i blogging buddies (haha now that’s a lot of alliteration).

This year I joined the team at Nineteen Months, as a contributing photographer, as well as that I am helping administer a couple of on line Baha’i arts groups.

Slowly but surely I meet more of the people I know through their projects and blogs in real space.  I love this, because no matter how much I love blogging, connecting up with people in real space is brilliant.

Naysan recently let me know  you can now catch Baha’i Blog Studio Sessions: HERE

Another project that I adore is Baha’i Chronicles  which features inspiring Baha’i biographies, from the past, and more contemporary.   They are always looking for contributors.

Another project I love is  UK Baha’i Histories, who feature stories of Baha’is with any connection to the UK.  I regularly blog their stories here.  I hope more Baha’i communities around the world establish ongoing heritage projects like this to collect stories of some amazing people.

So every now and then I hope to feature a bit of a news wrap up of Baha’i blogging projects from around the world.

Launching Bahá’í Chronicles

Congratulations to all those involved in Baha’i Chronicles.

Three years ago, Neda  Najibi started a series on her Facebook page titled ‘Did You Know?’ portraying stories about Bahá’í Heroes and Heroines. She  did this because she noticed there wasn’t a single online location systematically attempting to capture the heroism, struggles, victories, sacrifices, and  the dedication of  past and present Bahá’ís.

The death of Neda’s father (Nassir Najibi 1925-2013) gave her the impetus to launch Bahá’í Chronicles, to honour the many heroes and heroines, past and present, of the Bahá’í Faith.

She undertook the project to honour the memory of her father and feels he has been her guiding light for the past two years of putting this site together. 

The team that have created the site are: Neda Nassir Najibi, Co-Founder and Editor; Vanda Marie Khadem, Co-Founder. Bahá’í Chronicles intentionally does not make mention of the creators’ collegiate years, career environment or achievements but rather…
