Baghdad Burning

Published April 21, 2007 by Dr. Tammy Powley

While this book isn’t a how-to blog book, I think it is a wonderful example of the power of blogging when used as a way to write a personal narrative. It is called Baghdad Burning: Girl Blog from Iraq, and while it started off as a young woman’s blog about her life in Iraq during the war, it has turned into a lot more than that and becomes a real person account of what’s happening to citizens, especially women, over there right now. It’s even spawned Baghdad Burning II: More Girl Blog from Iraq (Women Writing the Middle East)which I haven’t had a chance to read yet.

Even if you are not into politics, this is a good read.
