The good news of a Dhivehi blog

Thaana ScriptI have been monitoring my visitor statistics a bit more thoroughly recently and found that a lot of my visitors come from the beautiful Maldives. It doesn’t come as too much of a surprise though given the owner [that is me Cool] is after all from Maldives.

I think some or most readers from the Maldives would very much like to have Dhivehi content as well. That thought made me think of a way to have Dhivehi content available on the domain

The idea I have used here is to simply create a new blog at Blogger and forward my new sub domain to that blog. The new blog will use a different layout and theme to suit the Right To Left text direction as Dhivehi is written that way.

The url of my Dhivehi blog is I am working on it currently, finding time by making use of very short breaks taken during my heavy schedule of architorture assignment works and in between classes. Some times even during meal time. So it is understandable that it is progressing a bit slow.

Anyway, now that the first step is taken towards the Dhivehi site, it will Insha Allah be available for visitors to enjoy reading very soon. Stay tuned.

Please note that the chart showing Thaana script [script used to write Dhivehi] on this page is proudly borrowed from However, a little photoshoping was done to make its background transparent.
