For as long as I can remember, I have thought of writing as a release and paper (or a computer screen in this case) as being the place to go to express what you think, feel or just what you’d like to share with other people – whether informative, creative, critical or just for fun.
I set up And then she said to share my views and experiences, my projects and great finds, my knowledge on certain things (although I’d never claim to know it all!). I can be quite the perfectionist and setting up the blog was something I kept putting off because I wanted to figure out the how-to’s of it all, find just the right colour scheme and graphics, set up all my social media accounts and all that jazz. I purchased the domain years ago and work, a baby, more work, then another baby took up all my time and I kept putting it off. Meanwhile, I’d read other blogs and think about all the things that I really wanted to share with like-minded people and about all the content that I wish was out there that I’d love to read and benefit from. As a Muslim woman, I also want to counter negative perceptions of Islam and Muslim women and how we are perceived by the public and I hope this space helps to foster a better understanding of what we’re all about. I decided that the blog had to go live by the end of 2015 and I’m thrilled to have my little space on the internet now.
You will only find content that I would want to read on here – I’ll share things I find exciting, interesting, educational, thought-provoking and funny, and I would love for this to be a beneficial space for everyone that stops by. I’d love to hear from you – so if you have a question or an opinion you’d like to share, please get in touch!
Happy reading & God bless!
