'I became the profane pervert Arab blogger'

Salam Pax in the Guardian tells, very elegantly, the history of the phenomenon that is his weblog. This amazing little gem of a story does two things for me - it reinforces my lackadaisically mystical worldview, based on a subtle God-driven mix of meaningless coincidence, cosmic irony and unappreciated miracles, and it explains almost perfectly the addictive attraction of blogging itself:
"With blogs the web started talking to me in a much more personal way. Bits of news started having texture and most amazingly, these blogs talked with each other. That hyperlink to the next blog - I just couldn't stop clicking. And the best thing about it was that Mr Site Killer had absolutely no clue."
