Afghan Culture around WordPress

Rather than spotlighting Afghans living in a particular country today, I thought I’d do a search on WordPress for interesting blogs and blog posts about Afghan culture. Some of these I have shared before and some I just stumbled upon today for the first time. I’m including the links below as you might be interested.
