Top 10 Baha’i Blog YouTube Videos of the Year!

Over two years ago we launched Baha’i Blog’s YouTube channel, where we set out to create our very own original Baha’i-inspired video content. Now, about 200 videos later, we have a variety of content to offer, including informative animations like our What are Devotional Gatherings?, our popular music series called Studio Sessions, Baha’i-inspired talks, our short film series on creatives called The Art Of…, and the funny What’s That Word? series aimed at junior youth.

We are excited to be a part of the steadily growing ecosystem of Baha’i-inspired video content online, and we also contribute to this ecosystem by helping and collaborating with others to make specific videos such as the The Last Time I Saw My Father and the short film Switch.

We’ve been trying to reach 10,000 subscribers on our YouTube channel, and we’re almost there, but could really use your help to get us across the line! YouTube has studios located in different parts of the world, and if we have over 10,000 subscribers, we can gain access to them and hopefully use them for some of our future initiatives, so if you can take a few seconds to help us make this happen by clicking here to SUBSCRIBE, we’d really appreciate it! We’d also be very grateful if you could help us spread the word and ask everyone you know who likes Baha’i Blog to help us achieve this goal too!

So now that that’s out of the way (and thank you so much for helping out with that!) let’s get on with counting down our 10 most popular YouTube videos of the year, from Naw-Ruz 2017 to Naw-Ruz 2018, starting with number one: Continue reading

Celebrating 7 Years of Baha’i Blog: Some Highlights of the Year!

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.
