My friend Brad, a public affairs office in the Air Force, was deployed to Baghdad, Iraq, last week. He’s started a blog, “Blogging Iraq.” Brad wants the blog to be about “what life is REALLY like” there, and he’s succeeding.
Since he’s been there, he’s blogged about everything from his flight from his supply stop into Baghdad and buying Burger King in the desert to the first sandstorm he experienced. I’m finding his stories about the “sandy beaches of Iraq” absolutely fascinating.
I asked him if I could share his blog address, and he readily agreed. He welcomes new readers in this post where he talks about when he’ll get to go home. (In that post, he also shows a video of him and a friend feeding some really hungry fish.)
As of this writing, you can only access the three most recent posts from the front page. You can access the rest of the posts by clicking on the “archives” link under the “subscribe” button in the right column. (Subscribe while you’re at it.)
He’s writing the blog so folks will read it, so feel free to blog about it yourself and tell your friends via Twitter, Facebook, etc.
Brad is looking forward to seeing you: Blogging Iraq.
