On this date in November 2004 "Notes From Hairenik" was born. It was one of the first blogs to be published from Armenia, with only a few others in existence at that time. I was encouraged by a friend to start a blog during a period when one was certainly needed to document the viewpoints and experiences of a diasporan Armenian living in the homeland. Quite honestly, I was a bit clueless as to what a blog was at the time--it was before the blogging revolution actually started less than a year later. They were commonly known as Web logs then.
"Notes From Hairenik" is still going strong as a blog published from Armenia, discussing social, cultural, personal and, less frequently now, political themes. I am overwhelmingly grateful to everyone who fancies visiting this blog from time to time; it's much appreciated since it is written for you in the first place. Please continue reading future entries and leave your comments, which are always welcome.
