Blogging Strategy: Extending Your Voice To The World

Jeremiah Owyang is very well known social media strategist and was recently in Doha, Qatar for ictQatar. He did a keynote presentation about blogging strategy in general and how to connect to the world.

Owyang’s presentation is insightful and informational. Without getting too political, I would like to outright say that blogging is form of expression and self thought process, it serves it purpose well only when there are no boundaries, freedom of speech.

Though it is interesting to see that countries like Qatar and U.A.E are at the forefront of innovation, it is important to point out that blogging is a step by step process. It has to start at the grass roots and then move to the next level, not the other way around.

My name is Zahid and I have been blogging since 2006. During this time, I got married, graduated, started a career, had a son, and bought my first home – in that order. I was born in Karachi and raised in Dubai where I lived for 19 years before moving to California in 2002 to pursue my Undergrad. I graduated with a B.Sc. in Accounting from SF State. I now live in the city of San Jose, at the heart of Silicon Valley. I currently work as a corporate tax accountant at a tech startup in SF. Before that, I worked at one of the Big 4 tax and audit firms. In another life, I would have been a writer, a journalist, a photographer, and startup investor. That’s why, you will find me blogging about writing, journalism and news media, photography and travel, and new tech startups and products.
