A new blog: Daily Dose of Iman

by Umm Muawiyah

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

Assalamu Alaikum.

And yes, it’s my blog (it’s sort of obvious from the name, isn’t it?).

So, what’s this new blog all about? Well, it’s a little brother to this (Ramadan) blog.

The purpose of it is to encourage people to keep continuing with the habits that we’ve chosen to work on.

Yes, I could have written daily short tips on this blog as well but that would mean:

1) That there would be more than one post a day.

2) That I might have to focus solely on these habits and I don’t want to do that. I want to finish  all the other pending series as well!

So, I thought that while we could choose the habits here, we could have the “motivation” part on another blog so that I could post twice a day if required.  Only those interested in forming these habits would subscribe to that blog.

The blog is very simple (almost twitter-like) and quite bare at the moment (only four posts):

http://dailydoseofiman.wordpress.com/

[To understand why I chose this theme, please read this.]

So, what are your thoughts? Do you have any suggestions?

Also, a question for all of you:

a) Would you like this to be a private blog just for the sisters*?

[*This would mean that I am fairly certain that they are sisters. They should also sign up for a free wordpress account. Only 35 sisters can join in.]

or

b) Keep it the way it is (i.e. public)?

The first option would mean a more relaxed atmosphere, of course, as the readers would only be women.

What do you think? Let me know, insha-Allah.

PS. My apologies for not having replied to the comments over the past week. I’ll try to do so tomorrow, insha-Allah.

    asslam-o-alikum sister, this is a great idea “daily dose of imaann” i would recommend to keep it a public page so everyone can benefit from the information. it will be public but at our homes we will be reading alone its not tht we will be sitting in a group with men and sharing the info. so i feel it shouldnt matter it will be more helpful to more people and inshAllah more reward for u. jazak Allahu khair for everything u have been doing. take care

      Wa Alaikum Assalam.

      Wa iyyaaki.

      What I meant by privacy, is that sisters may ask questions and interact without any men reading the posts. If it’s public, then all of us need to be more guarded.
