Can Arab blogging, whether in English or in Arabic, be considered emerging counter-public spheres in the Arab world? And what is the impact of blogging in different Arabic mediascapes: do they broaden the boundaries for freedom of expression on political and social issues, do they test cultural/religious norms and are women empowered to exercise agency through participation? This article addresses questions such as these with respect to the Lebanese blogosphere.
