Alexandra Tohme

(aka @alexzawya) blogging at Zawya.com

Jad Berro





1- How long have you been blogging?

Not long! Only since end 2008 beginning 2009

Have been blogging since October 1, 2009.


2- How many hours per day do you dedicate to the blog?

Literally none, I write whenever the mood takes me

Almost none, I update my blog when needed, when I have a new idea to present, or a new project to showcase!

3- Has it been worth it so far?


Yes, definitely, it made it much easier and simpler to show friends and other people some of my interests and accomplishments via a simple link. Rather than creating an online database or physically showing them everything.

And most importantly I exist on the inter-webs now! 

4- How many page views does your blog get daily?

Few, I write a business blog on our own site zawya.com

It gets roughly about 100 views per week recently, and I owe that to Google. 

5- How many blogs do you have or write for currently?


One, mine. Although I’m setting up a more professional personal blog .

6- How many hours do you dedicate to them every day?

When I write something it usually takes me max 30 mins, unless I’m doing a lot of research

It depends on the free time I have, what I have to present and the time needed to actually type the posts. But generally everything I have on my blog is actually something from the course of my life, so it’s generally copy paste of my works.

7- Do you think one needs to post daily to be successful?

It depends on your audience and subject matter, eg retail vs business, personal vs corporate etc

Quality beats quantity. You don't have to necessarily post everyday to be successful. Unless you have something important or worth broadcasting.

8- Is there an ideal posting frequency?

Just enough to keep them wanting more!

It relates to the frequency of my life what I’m doing and accomplishing, it cant be something routine and stable, that way someone will be forced to type a post and that will eventually lead to poor posts and lack of interest from the reader.

9- What is the biggest blogging mistake you did?

Not blogging enough I think

I think that I don't take care of my blog …..

10- What is the biggest mistake you see in blog designs?


Layout and length

Flashy multicolor designs are bad in my opinion, the simpler the better, it’s the info inside that counts.

11- Twitter is a distraction or a good promotional tool?


Twitter can never be a distraction , because someone can never spend too much time on twitter , the fact that you can tell your close friends what you are doing and such is nice , even connecting the blog to twitter or other internet social media sites is great and a good promotional tool .

12- Do you think that any professional should have a blog?

I think even aliens should blog, how are we going to know you exist in this day and age!

Any professional in a closed field that includes interacting with people, web design, technology etc... , should have a blog or a website, its definitely more worth than a profile on Facebook for example.

13- If you could give an advice for a novice blogger, what would it be?

Links and track backs

Don't type anything just for the sake of posting, let the articles be organized, to the point and not too tall, unless the subject requires that.

14- What is the secret of your success, expressed in one word?



15- If you could write a post on any blog in the world, which one would you pick?

Lifegeeked probably!
