WHY I WRITE IN MY BLOG?

January 3, 2020

A correspondent told me, as if I don’t know, that many Coptoligists and other scholars, such as Sociologists and Linguists, follow my blog; that some of my articles are worth publishing in scientific journals, urging me in a way not to publish them in an open blog, which, in his opinion, does not bring me monetary or scientific dividend.

But I write as a matter of principle and I am driven by principles. All writings should be available to the public, directly and not be confined to scholars with access to scientific journals. I address my people first, whom I would like to rouse to stand up and claim their place as a distinct nation that should be proud of their history and heritage, and secondly to all who are interested in the Copts, and anything that is related to the Copts, whether they are scholars or not.

A blog with a mission cannot be but open to all – scientific journals are restricted to the few. This is why I write to all – in an open blog.

      Twitter and Facebook are forums for control – that’s they control one’s freedom of speech. Not the sort I would like to rejoin. I would be grateful though if you post by articles in whatever forum you use. DB
