It’s Baha’i Blog’s seventh birthday everyone, and we’re super excited to share it with you all!
Baha’i Blog’s mission is to create, celebrate and explore Baha’i-inspired content, artistic expression and use of media. Since 2011 we have been using Baha’i Blog as a “laboratory” of sorts, where through planning, action and reflection, we explore how the vast and dynamic Revelation of Baha’u’llah translates into various avenues of content creation, whether it be through the articles we publish, the videos we make, the music we record, the podcast we produce, or even the T-shirts we print.
The field of arts and media inspired by the Baha’i Revelation is a blossoming garden of personal and community projects, creations and craft. Through Baha’i Blog we aim to surface, highlight, celebrate and contribute to this ecosystem, and we do this by not only being active participants and creators ourselves, but by also encouraging, collaborating, showcasing and helping other creators as well.

As you may have noticed from things like Baha’i Blog’s Studio Sessions series or all of the music-related interviews we’ve done, you’ve hopefully come to realize that here at Baha’i Blog we’re passionate about the use of the arts and music. That’s why I was thrilled when I found out about a wonderful initiative called The Baha’i Song Project, a unique and exciting website that was originally launched in 2011 to foster and encourage the incorporation of music and singing in community life. Created by Dayyan Smith and Nadine Reyhani, the The Baha’i Song Project includes videos of songs from the Baha’i Writings, in a multiplicity of languages, and downloadable lyrics and chords so anyone can learn the melody and the words. The site is easy-to-use and brimming with resources like their YouTube Channel, so I got in touch with Nadine and Dayyan who were happy to share more about this wonderful initiative: Continue reading
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
