Mahmoud Ahmadinejad Rarely Updates His Blog

Posted on December 13, 2007

Iran's president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has not been blogging as frequently as had been anticipated when his blog launched over a year ago. Earlier this month he posted an entry titled "A Guideline for Islamic Governance." This was only Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's third post of the year on his blog called Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's Personal Memos. Vnunet has an entry on the Iranian leader's slothful blogging style. Ahmadinejad claims he is still spending a staggering 15 minutes per week on his blog despite the lack of posts.

The blog, called Mahmoud Ahmadinejad's Personal Memos, has been active for over a year and has attracted a wide readership. But despite promising to spend a set amount of time writing the blog, he has seldom managed to post this year.

"Since my last post on the blog, a few months have passed," he writes.

"But this doesn't ‎mean that I have not been keeping my promise of spending 15 minutes per week ‎on it. As a matter of fact, I have spent more than the allocated time on the blog. The ‎magnitude of the reception and acclamation from the viewers was beyond ‎expectations."

Someone should tell Iran's leader that infrequent blogging can result in a diminishing blog readership. If Mahmoud wants to increase his blog readership he really needs to pick up the pace.
