Celebrating 10 Years of Baha’i Blog!

Baha’i Blog is super excited to share that we are celebrating our 10 year anniversary since we launched in Naw-Ruz 2011! (Woohoo!!!)

Over the last 10 years, we’ve been passionately exploring how the Revelation of Baha’u’llah translates into different avenues of media by creating a plethora of Baha’i-inspired content, which we hoped will serve the Baha’i community, and also help raise the profile of the Baha’i Faith online. We hope you’ve enjoyed Baha’i Blog so far, and more importantly, we hope that our work has contributed to your journey and exploration of the wonderful teachings of the Baha’i Faith.

239Days.com Relaunches in Honor of the 100th Anniversary of the Passing of Abdu’l-Baha

239days.com is a website that chronicles and brings to life the 239 days Abdu’l-Baha traveled across North America. The initiative was originally launched in 2012, to mark the 100th anniversary of Abdu’l-Baha’s travels, and now the site has been updated and relaunched with new features, articles, information, and pictures as this year commemorates the 100th anniversary of His Passing.

I absolutely loved this initiative when it came out, and it was clear that a lot of love, thought, time and research went into the project. When I heard about the relaunch, I got in touch with my dear friend and the executive producer of the project, Shahin Sobhani, to hear more about 239days.com and some of its new updates. Here’s what he had to say: Continue reading

Celebrating Six Years of Baha’i Blog!

I can’t believe it’s now been six years since a few of us got together and launched Baha’i Blog, a site aimed at sharing and creating content that explores and celebrates the Revelation of Baha’u’llah through various avenues of media including articles, video and audio.

We set out on this Baha’i Blog journey with an approach of ‘learning through action’, and we continue to meet regularly in order to plan, act and reflect on all the things we’re working on. The last six years have truly been an amazing experience with so many great learnings and so much great feedback and help from both Baha’i Institutions and so many individuals and communities in every part of the world. We are extremely grateful to everyone for their continued encouragement and support over the years!

So far we’ve had over 120 contributors to Baha’i Blog, and we’ve published over 1,060 posts to date. We’ve produced over 100 videos, and over 130 audio recordings including talks, music, and even our very own podcast series with Rainn Wilson.

With so much happening here at Baha’i Blog, we thought we’d just share a few of the highlights of some of the things we’ve done over the last year: Continue reading
