So, if you are reading this, consider yourself TAGGED :)
Everyone in the blogging scene has a blog name and sometimes a blog photo (icon) too. Ever wondered where that came from and why they choose it?
Now is the time to know...
1- What is your Blog's name?
2- Why did you choose that name?
It has something to do with why i started my blog in the first place (check my first post: "The Beginning").
I started the blog to communicate and vent with the friends i left behind in Egypt. Instead of bombarding them with e-mails of various topics. one of them suggested creating a blog.
Since the purpose was a virtual chitchat and venting with my friends, the first name that came to my mind was "Fadfad" (Arabic word for chatting, venting, expressing yourself...etc.). i then added to it "ation" as if it was an English noun. This mix reflects my Egyptian (Arabic) and British (English) mixed genes.
Hence came the "FADFADATION"!
Beware of the Fadfadation, for he is noisy :)
3- What does your blog's photo represent to you (if any)? Please post your Blog's photo below..
The photo is of Salah EL Din\Mohammed Ali Palace\Fortress\Citadel in Cairo, Egypt. This is an old illustration of how it looked like a few centuries ago.
I fell in love with this photo as soon as i saw it. It illustrates everything Egypt stands for and how i envision it.
The photo itself, represents the beauty of the past...our history.
The Palace\Citadel, represents the greatness of Egypt and how it always should be.
The fortress around it, represents the strength of Egypt and it's protection over the Arab and Islamic worlds.
The Masjid (Mosque) at the far top, represents the very heart of Egypt...ISLAM. For Egypt has always been the center point of the Islamic world, and It should always act as such!
