Greetings and welcome to my project of Desuden – դեսուդեն, which literally translated from Armenian: “this way – that way”. Desuden.com is a mirror website of Desuden.am where the same content is published for people speaking in Armenian and English. So you can find this text in Armenian on desuden.am very soon 🙂
Desuden is the project of Vardan Papikyan – a man who addicted to being somewhere else besides home very frequently. I am an online marketing specialist by profession, specialized in search engines, domains and online media technologies, but this never bothers me to roam through famous and offbeat places taking a lot of stories in my notes.
In this project, I publish short stories related to my trips through different places of Armenia – the land where any corner has several hidden and remarkable sights, that are worth being represented to the public.
Blogging was my beloved area of business since 2008, times when the blogosphere just started to grow in my country and worldwide at all. From those times I managed tens of personal, professional and content projects, organized several trainings and conferences related to blogging and social media, but after some years stopped my own projects (like ireport.am, armenix.com and armenianopen.net) focusing on different commercial projects.
Usually, I don’t write long stories spiced with luxurious descriptions, but trying to fix the moments in my photos and show how it feels to be right there where I have been. Thus you’ll find many many photos and short modest stories with a lot of expressions and emotions mixed with Armenian authentic in my blog, and don’t forget that your comments and feedback are very important for me, because, you know, Google likes when the readers leaving feedback on blog posts 🙂 – just kidding..
