We are happy to have him here and have him explain more about Frankom and who is he?
1- Why did you choose (Frankom) as a name to your blog?
First of all, I would like to thank you for giving me the opportunity to participate in your blog.
”Frankom” assembles the union of the first letters of my best friend’s names, back then we were at the high school thinking of creating our own blog where we can talk about every concerable thing. The idea of creating this website didn’t find it’s way through for different reasons. I loved it more than any of my friends and insisted to establish it in spite of all the obstacles that I faced during the beginning of it.
2- Tell me about yourself?
I’m 28 years old, married and I have a daughter, I love my wife, my baby and every member in my family.
I love life, simplicity, technology, shopping, and most importantly I LOVE TO EAT ! I mean who doesn’t!
I love my job so much and try to be creative in it by all means.
I hate jealousy, envy, greed, selfishness, and self centered.
Football is my thing, I’m in love with Manchester United.
3- How long have you been blogging?
Well, “Frankom.com” was fist established back in May 2005 but I used to have my own mini blog before that like 2 years so lets say around 2003.
4- How many writes (Members) in your blog?
more than 80,000 Thousand writers who write my subjects, those subjects are based on tonnes of emails that I receive every day from all over the world describing a certain event or story.
5- What kind of category you see your blog in?
“Frankom” is a refreshing blog that talks about all our daily matters.
6- How did you start blogging?
At the beginning I was looking for a company that offers (hosting) services, I searched every where and of course I didn’t face a problem of finding a name since the name was already there since 1997.
started with different softwares till I reached wordpress I even tried Frontpage at the first beginning.
Today I blog from house,office, while shopping and even before I sleep I used to blog about things that is just in mind like questions I want to share with others.
7- What was the reaction of the people around you about your blog?
I didn’t tell any body at first, I’ve been and still working quietly and the blog was too slow to force it self on the net so I kept the hard work until it has proved it self among other successful blogs. My opinion in political issues was the main reason of the success and the good well of the blog because it was spreaded in seconds by e-mails.
Also, like they say a picture can tell a thousand words ! Most of my topics must have a picture or two at least I don’t like to write more, maximum 2 paragraphs.
and as for my family, i remember once we were dinning and they started talking about blogs, and all the sudden they mentioned Frankom! i couldn’t help but telling them that it is mine! they were thrilled and proud at the same time.
8- What kind of marketing method you used for your blog (How’s did you prompted your blog)?
I talk about companies and products like “every body does” such as the restaurants that I tried and shopping malls and so on.
Two years ago two comunication companies has sponsored my blog, actually i wasn’t comfortable as i felt that it restrained the freedom to criticise and i decided to reject all the offers because of my willing to talk freely and loudly. Then I tried to not have any banners there.
Few days ago (a leading bank) knocked the door telling me that they would like to sponsor my blog just without any Restrictions or conditions !
9- What do you advise the guys/girls who just started blogging?
Lots of the new bloggers gave up too soon and I don’t know why?There were some excellent blogs that interested me stopped all the sudden.
Blogging doesn’t mean to write about a subject every minute to be famous, it is about benefiting all the people who read it in so many levels and ways.
10- Any last words to your readers?
Like I started, I would like to show my deepest appreciation and gratitude for giving me this amazing chance to express my self like I’ve never done any where before.
