Dear readers,

We’d like to thank you for making last month the biggest month in terms of visits and hits for us. Thank you guys.

We also have a big announcement to share with you fine people. We decided after much thought, to stop blogging.

Why?

Well. Having to post everyday was stressful. It was taking a lot of our time, and at times we felt like we needed a time off. Actually we felt that we needed a time off every single day. That wasn’t the spirit we started with. It was something we wanted to do, not something we had to do. Blogging shouldn’t be like that, not if we were willing to maintain a certain standard or have lives, anyway.

We’ve been thinking about it for some time now, at first it was like ‘let’s stop and delete the blog’. But, after thinking of all the material we’ve written, all the good pictures and the reviews, and our love for writing. We’ve decided to keep the blog. We won’t post, as often, we’ll post whenever we feel like it. Be it daily, weekly, or even monthly. We don’t know yet how will it goes. All we know is that we no longer want to be a commercial blog that has to write posts. We’ll stop this form of blogging. And get back to having fun with it.

We’d like to thank you our dear dear readers. Thank you for all the support and the love you’ve shown over the years, your input, comments and encouragement were all an integral part of what this blog is about. You too silent readers, we appreciate every single one of you.

We’d also like to thank our sponsors over the years, thank you all, especially Zain, our first sponsor, thanks for believing in us, and we’re sorry to let you guys know about our decision like this. But we think highly of our readers, and we wanted to let them know first. Even our families don’t know yet. The ads will be taken down tomorrow and no more ad spaces will be made available.

We’re really proud of SOMEcontrast and ourselves. Staying true to ourselves, writing honest reviews, not deleting a single negative comment, buying and learning how to use pro cameras and learning to use Photoshop, literally spending hours on a single post… all that and more. We’re really proud of this effort. We hope you enjoyed it and found what we had to say over the last 3 years helpful, entertaining and worth your visits.

Today marks SOMEcontrast’s 3rd anniversary. Happy anniversary blog!

    if not, then what to say? this blog is not an “obligation”. You can post whenever you feel like it, it is not a job. Mo lazim kil yom qasub takteboon 1500 post so that people are happy. Do it for yourself.

    zainnnn etsawoon!! your blog was amazing when it started, because you posted what you were genuinly interested in, rather than conforming to what people want to read.. Then it sort of became commercial, and kinda like most other blogs.

    So I totally support this move!

    Congratulations some contrast on this decision as I strongly support it. I don’t think that blogging in any term should be a hectic job. On the contrary, it should be fun, writing what ever comes in your mind, in any form you wish and above all it shouldn’t be commercially oriented. Otherwise your blog will be like a giant billboard.
    I also want to say that we at yam3a.com strongly support you 100%. I need any help just lets us know. All the best for you.

    I have always been a fan. I don’t like commercial blogs, but yours is different, There’s a personal touch to it and that’s why I love it. Some commercial blogs are too commercial and blog too much!

    I don’t mind a post or two in weeks, it’s good, thats how i am now. Blogging should be when you feel like, not obligatory..

    Blogging is not what it used to be a couple of years ago so I understand what you’re talking about :(

    Keep it up when you feel like it!

    wallah ana ely i’ve always been a fan of your blog! an envious fan! lol I love your blog and your spirit. and the country you’re in.. ugh.

    Thank you Shosho :) We’re stopping the stressful pattern we got stuck in. We’ll only write when we feel like it. We’re going back to what blogging was always about. Laid back and a place where you de-stress.

  20. Sahar says:

    Is this a joke? first blushberry, then you? Guys you started the blogging trend in Kuwait along with a few others and raised it to the standard it is today. This is a huge mistake, there is definitely a way around this in terms of organizing your time etc..

    [Reply]

    Yousef Reply:

    Thank you Sahar. We appreciate the nice words. Seriously.. it means a lot to get this kind of recognition.

    You see, some of our posts take hours to write and publish. We include many pictures. Great deal of editing is involved when it comes to pictures. I feel like throwing myself outta the window everytime I have a restaurant review/outing/event/adventure/trip that include pictures. We love those posts, the long ones with lots of talking and lots of images. We love them. But we don’t get to post them as much as we used to coz they take a lot of time. Literally hours. hours to complete a single post. We’ve created a standard for ourselves that proved to be impossible to keep up. When we concluded that we couldn’t keep up the standard, we decided to stop.

    That is one of the reasons. Just one. The ‘lets blame the long posts’ reason for stopping this type of blogging. :)

    [Reply]

    Sahar Reply:

    I appreciate your reply, and don’t worry we will be patient for when you have a post coming up:) And you are right, high standard posting does take time and effort especially to details many people might not even notice:) but that’s how perfectionists work. Good luck, looking forward to your next post even if it a month away:)

  25. Intlxpatr says:

    First, happy blogaversary. Three years of content is HUGE. Your commitment and your entries have been stimulating, entertaining and helpful.

    Second, I applaud your taking the pressure off yourselves. This is supposed to be fun. Having to keep commercial interests in mind takes some of the fun away.

    Third, I am betting that once the pressure is off, you are blogging anyway. Most of the people who start blogging and keep up with it – even though they feel burned out now and then – are blogging because they were born communicators. You, Yousef, and Mishary, have shown us that you blog to share, not to promote yourselves. I am betting that it is part of your nature, and that once the pressure is off, you will find that it is something you do because it is what you were born to do. :-)

    Fourth, if you go away, I will be really, really sad.

    [Reply]

    Yousef Reply:

    1st thank you!

    2nd, takes most of the fun away. It was hectic!

    3rd, I don’t think we’ll ever stop. As in drop it all? no way. We’re already planning a 5 or 10 years extension to our existing hosting plan. We’ll stop the form of blogging we got stuck with. We will definitely stop being what we’ve been this last year. but stop blogging all together? Unlikely.

    4th, and we can’t let that happen, now can we? :)

    5th, You rock. in every single way. Thank you dear intlxpatr :)

    omg im so annoyed and pissed!
    i’ve always been a silent reader of your blog, and i follow it religiously. i’ve been seeing the same last post but never got around to reading until now and wondered why there were no updates and i read the final post completely.
    im devastated :( really…

    Ok am relatively new to the blogging world, but I totally understand your decision guys, blogging is really time consuming & very stressful activity. Don’t get me wrong bloggers but for sometime now I have been thinking to myself why significant % of bloggers are either over-weight or living very unhealthy, the answer is simple, stress & over-dwelling on keeping up the posts & daily stream.

    You did an amazing job over the years & wish you all the best no matter what decision road you follow…

    Wallah entaw wellne3im feekom. I’m always proud to see the opinions here reflecting the mentality of my fellow Kuwaitis, my generation, my colleagues at work and my family. The blog is awesome and is one of the very very few blogs I still visit.
    Commercial the blog scene turned, true, and commercial it must not be and is not what we enjoyed anyways.
    I support your decision fully.
    No pressure; we enjoy your material when you enjoy it the most. :)

    Looking forward to the new phase of SomeContrast. Gawakom Allah
