Back on Gulfnet

Posted by Mark

gulfnet

For those of you with Gulfnet who were having difficulties accessing my site, everything seems to be back to normal again. I tried to contact them to figure out what was going on but their email form on the website kept giving an error so I contacted them on twitter and facebook but they ignored me and when I finally called them up to complain, the customer support rep told me he couldn’t file a complaint for me because I wasn’t a customer. So thanks to everyone who contacted them about this, my guess is my blog was blocked accidentally or they had some technical issue.

Health and fitness posts coming back

Posted by Mark

healtylifestyle

Every now and then I invite professionals to contribute to this blog to help me cover subjects I personally cannot do myself. One subject I used to enjoy reading were the health and fitness posts which were written by Fahad AlYehya (thedietninja). Since Fahad moved on from the blog a long time ago, I’ve invited a new contributor to take over that subject, Amy Freeman.

I was introduced to Amy by a friend of mine a couple of weeks back and after first meeting her I realized she could provide a lot of interesting content for the blog which I’d personally love to read. Amy just published her first post below and I’m now looking forward to reading more of her stuff on a weekly basis. I hope everyone else will too.

New Gaming Section

Posted by Mark

gaming2

This is probably the last new section I’m adding to the blog right now, it’s a gaming section that will be run by my brother. He was running his own blog called Sixteenbit Dreams and I thought his posts were all very interesting so I moved him into my blog. He’s contributed on 248AM before with gaming posts but now he’s going to have his own dedicated section. So check it out either by clicking on Gaming in the navigation strip at the top or by clicking [Here]

classifieds

Just a minor change, I renamed the Market section to Classifieds. I figured Classifieds is easier to understand plus is more google friendly. All the old Market links you have should automatically take you to the new location. [Classifieds]

The New Fashion & Lifestyle Section

Posted by Mark

fashion

One of my plans for 2014 is to provide you guys with more content. I already have 248PM where I post random things not related to Kuwait, I also recently launched the Events and the Market section and now I’m introducing another section, one that will focus on fashion and lifestyle.

Last year after not being able to find someone to help me run the fashion section (I obviously can’t run it myself), I gave up on the idea completely until a few months back. Through a series of events I came up with the idea of creating a community driven fashion section in which I would invite various brands and people to participate in it. The brands would get exposure and I would get content, a win win situation.

fashion

After spending a few months meeting various people and trying to coordinate a synchronized launched, the fashion section is finally officially up. Currently the following brands have already started participating in the section: Al Ostoura, Al Yasra Fashion, 4, Pink Moon, Violet Concept as well as local fashion photographer Jalil Marvin and fashion blogger Joumana Soufi. There are a few more brands and people who will also be joining soon but I couldn’t wait any longer to launch the section.

So check out the section either by clicking on the “Fashion” button in the top navigation strip or by clicking [Here]

If you’re a fashion brand and you’re interested in being part of that section [Email Me]

I’m back

Posted by Mark

It was an amazing (although short) time off from the blog. I’m back in London now so will resume posting as usual.

Sorry we’re closed.

Posted by Mark

I’m currently in London and heading out to Paris tomorrow and I’ve decided while I’m there I won’t be posting anything on the blog at all. I will be back to London on the 25th and will resume posting then. So that’s basically 4 days without posting, the longest I’ve gone without posting since back in 2004. I’m taking a much needed break from the blog but I will continue to instagram.

So I hope everyone has a nice holiday, I’m out!
