    The responses have been fantastic by so many people. Many others vowed to blog about Jordan everyday, which is a fantastic endeavor by all means. One blogger from Australia liked the idea to the point that they actually asked the Australian community to have a similar effort. I find this fantastic

    Tips:

    1. Make sure your title says, Blog about Jordan day. (or BAJO for short)
    2. Be creative while selecting your title, I recommend having the word Jordan in the title somewhere
    3. If you can add pictures, make sure you tag them with "Blog about Jordan day:" or BAJO: for short
    4. You don't have to link to the original article or even mention, but it would be great if you can
    5. If at all possible, add one of the Blog about Jordan day pictures in your article. It's completely up to you though

    Motivations

    I'm really sad that when I write "Jordan" in Google, the first few pages have nothing to do with Jordan. They mention a model called Jordan, Nike Air Jordan, Michale Jordan. But nothing that has to do with Jordan the country.

    I would like to thank everyone who have participated so far by posting, adding badges or even emailing their friends. I would like to thank people who have been participating on facebook group. I would like to thank, Maioush, Mohanned, Secratea, Sari, Bakkouz, Batoul, Maher, Mal2e6, Summer, Simsim, Nida, Askadinia, Ammar, Dima, Waed, Mkilani, fattoum, Khaled, Nadine Touqan, Samer Marzouq, Maha from Play FM, Ali,  Hala, GlobaloramaWasapninJordan, tololy, Abed Hamdan, Kinzi, MommaBean, Tala, Omar (and others)

    This is the last call to all Jordanians to pitch in, lets do this! Lets do this! Lets do this!

    Nas, this one is going out to you, please, Join us!
    Lina, this one is going out to you, Please, help us!

    Memories....

    :), thanks Qwaider for leading this initiative and giving it more momentum. I actually have seen the picture before on several blogs  but never been aware of what it  is really all about.

    You introduced a lot of good ideas to write about. Jordanian blogsphere usually right about Jordan most of the time, and we always keep on pitching about shortages and stuff. Maybe it would be nice to celebrate Jordan tomorrow. Let's see what we can come up with :)
    Well Q I like the idea, I would like to see more positive than negative posts, since the aim is to promote Jordan. I will try my best to write something  
    Great!! actually i spent a long time thinking about a subject to write about it.. Now no worry... I will select one of these subjects to write something..:)
    thnx 4 ur efforts
    This is a second try since my comments seem to disappear. I like the idea and will do my best to come up with a post : )
