Where are all the English-Croatian blogs?

I'm always interested in reading about English speaking people in Croatia and their over-all experiences on a day-to-day basis. So I've been combing through the internet looking for blogs that fit this description. Strangely, there are a tiny handful of blogs, and most of them are either outdated (as in: the people went back to their home country), or they are not updated very often.

This is sort of weird. I mean, do a search for blogs by English-speakers in any other country on the planet: Italy, France, Germany, Argentina, Portugal, Greece....you name it, there will be dozens and dozens of active blogs. But try searching for blogs in Croatia, and very few pop up. Why??? I can't figure it out. Is it because English speakers coming to Croatia don't like to blog. Or maybe they are not very tech-savvy. Or maybe they are too busy eating cevapi and kremsnite and drinking espresso out on a cafe terrace? Or maybe instead of blogging they are planted on Facebook where mostly friends and family only know about them. I just don't know what the answer is. But I'll keep on searching and see what comes up.

I agree with you - it is a little odd the lack of blogging and info in general in the English language out there. I have a project in its infancy, www.total-croatia.com, only 12 days old, so be gentle... and want to bring as much info about Croatia in English under one roof. If you are interested in joining the project, would love to hear from you and would like to include some of your posts on the site (with full accreditation of course). Cheers from another sunny one on Hvar. Paul
