Welcome to The Blog Report

I'm so glad you stopped by and hope you find this blog an interesting read. I've been blogging since April of 2006, currently the author of six public and two private blogs. In the beginning I knew absolutely nothing about blogging. Over the years through trial and error, frustration and elation, and a few tears I've learned a lot. However, the learning process when it comes to blogging continues to evolve. Here you will find a hodge podge of my blogging experiences, useful codes and how-tos, sprinkled liberally with my opinions. Enjoy!

In the News: Raif Badawi

Saudi blogger Raif Badawi is a liberal activist blogger and founder of the Free Saudi Liberals website.  He has been sentenced to 10 years in prision, 1,000 lashes and a fine of 1 million riyals for insulting Islam and religious authorities.  He started his blog in 2006 and went offline since his arrest in 2012.  His case is a clear example that bloggers can and do get themselves into trouble blogging.  Saudi Arabia obviously felt threatened by Raif's writings that they view as dissent!
