Bajan Bloggers

During the course of the year there's been a surge in Barbadian bloggers. Though we all come from a small rock & some of us even 'lime' in similar social circles each blog is rather different, revealing a lot about our personal interests and individual characters. Have a peek at what these Bajans are saying:

(Listed alphabetically, Click on the title to see the blog)


Stephanie Marshall has an eclectic mix of wit and sarcasm to her writing, offering her personal (And funny) opinion on familiar topics such as her love of food, politics, WI cricket and interesting tidbits worth sharing.

Somewhat of a media institution, this blog has everyone from the PM to your grandmother posting their opinion, or having to defend their honour, on topical issues in Barbados. Great read and a useful online source for local and regional news (Including stories and details which are sometimes left out of the papers!)

--------------------------------------------------------


This anonymous blog is quite juicy; featuring opinions on people we all know (photos are an added bonus) Caribbean music and events. Don't know how long it will last but sometimes you have to love small island culture :) 

--------------------------------------------------------



Graphic designer Tiffany Taylor shares her thoughts, 'sometimes profound but more likely profoundly broken', on posts she finds to be beautiful, wise or true. Intelligent writing with a nice religious influence in her discussions. Check out her professional website here.


--------------------------------------------------------



Though Angelique Rodrigues has lived in Canada for quite some time now, this Bajan-at-heart multi media journalist has some great stories! A talented photographer as well, Angie uses both Wordpress and Tumblr as platforms for her work.


--------------------------------------------------------



This interior design blog has flourished thanks to Natasha Simpson's great taste and ability to capture the attention of a large audience on a rather niche topic. A few boys have even confessed to reading it! Lovely pictures and great tips and inspiration with a personal touch. Check out her professional website here.

 This artistic blog is the work of Natalie McGuire, a history of art graduate who's recently returned to the rock from New Zealand. She discusses the Bajan art and media scene with a subtle charm and has great photographs to compliment her posts.

--------------------------------------------------------



A cute, sweet and personal blog by Kimberly Bourne which features yummy (and easy to follow) homemade recipes, beautiful photos and insight into topics such as the environment, travel and personal well being. 

--------------------------------------------------------


 An artistic blog featuring the work of Central Saint Martin's ceramic design graduate Samarah Comission. I previously featured Samarah's amazing work on Skip to Malou* here.


--------------------------------------------------------



Luke DeFreitas is doing an International Tax Law Master's at the University of Leiden in The Netherlands. Luke is known for his dramatic rants, strong opinions and elaborate wording. This makes following his experiences in this strange country even funnier.


--------------------------------------------------------

 This is my personal travel blog which I started in 2010 on my trip to the Middle East and South East Asia. It inspired me to continue writing about my travels sine then (and it also saved me from having to send everyone individual email updates!) I'll be reporting on my Master's in Amsterdam and trips throughout Europe this year :) 


--------------------------------------------------------

 This is just a very brief overview and my aim is to highlight the diversity of just some of the Bajan blogosphere. I hope you enjoy these blogs as much as I do. They all have something unique to offer so why not check them out for yourself? "Follow" these blogs to help the author develop their blog further and increase readership! 
Enjoy! Let me know what you think :)
