4 Ways You Can Help Support Baha’i Blog

We just celebrated Baha’i Blog’s 10th birthday, and it’s been an amazing decade of creating Baha’i-inspired content! Everything that we’ve been able to produce and share online has been thanks to the hard work of the Baha’i Blog team and the help of volunteers and financial contributors.

Creating a variety of content and ensuring that it is of a high standard is no easy task, and this requires resources and material means: videos, audio recordings, interviews and articles all require time, talent, and/or money. As an individual initiative, we are so incredibly grateful to everyone who contributes to Baha’i Blog – be it by subscribing to our YouTube channel or sharing one of our posts on Facebook, hosting or feeding musicians when they’re recording a Studio Session or singing those very songs, writing articles, sending us an email when a typo or error is spotted, or making financial contributions from the heart. We couldn’t do what we do without your help, and we strive to make the most of every contribution received.

We could ALWAYS use more assistance to keep Baha’i Blog going, and to continue exploring other potential projects too! We often get asked how Baha’i Blog can be supported so we thought, in honor of our 10th year online, we’d share four ways you can help: Continue reading

With the recent passing of Mrs. Violette Haake, Dr. Farzam Arbab, and Mr. Douglas Martin, plus the countless other souls who have “abandoned the physical garment and have ascended to the spiritual world”, as Abdu’l-Baha puts it in one of His prayers for the departed, I thought it would be befitting to share a few Baha’i Blog Studio Session songs which relate to the departed.

Hello everyone! As many of you may have noticed by now, we’ve been asking everyone to help us reach 10,000 subscribers on Baha’i Blog’s YouTube channel, and we could use your help!

We recently discovered that YouTube has studios located in different parts of the world, and that we can have access to them if we reach 10,000 subscribers on our YouTube channel, so we’re asking everyone who likes what we’ve been doing, to help us achieve this goal as fast as possible by clicking ‘Subscribe‘ on Baha’i Blog’s YouTube Channel. We’d also be very grateful if you could help us spread the word and ask everyone you know who likes Baha’i Blog to help us too!

Welcome to the Newly Relaunched Baha’i Blog

Hello and welcome to the newly relaunched Baha’i Blog! I’m Preethi, your friendly editor, who together with Collis, Naysan and Vahid, make up the Baha’i Blog team. So, what exactly is Baha’i Blog? Baha’i Blog is a project which aims to create a cosy little nook in the blogosphere for Baha’is and friends of the Faith alike. As Baha’is, we all know what it’s like to live with an awareness that you truly do have family (spiritual, if not biological) all over the world. This blog aims to mirror that by creating an online community around the Baha’i Faith and connecting people from all over the world.

Baha’i Blog first found life as a project run by Ryan Lash some years back, but with his hectic travel schedule, Ryan kindly permitted the site to be recreated and relaunched as you see it now. We’ve gone live on Naw-Ruz 2011 and in our first few months will be working on making the blog an online resource where Baha’is and friends of the Faith around the world are able to access a wealth of information.
