Other Maltese Blogs

Part of the reason why I started this blog about 5 months ago was because there weren't any substantial Maltese blogs. This is not to say that no Maltese person had created a blog before I started mine. Far from it!

A small number of web enthusiasts had created a couple of blogs through the blogger service. Something tells me that there are probably also some blogs created via LiveJournal or some other blogging community, but I don't really have the time to research them right now. Anyway, my point is that as far as I know these pre-May 2004 blogs are all personal blogs.

One of the most active of these blogs is Jenny's. She started blogging last May, but her most recent entry was on the 15th of July. I wonder what happened to Jenny. Her blog contrasts beautifully with Maria Calleja's, which was only started last month. Maria's blog is quite active and carries the titillating title: Following Maria's adventures and endeavours!

Last week I discovered that Joseph Micallef has created the Acoustika Blog for the Acoustika Trio. It was through this blog that I discovered the sad news about Louis Naudi's demise.

Then there are a couple of political blogs that show great promise, but it appears that thus far their creators are still figuring out what blogs are all about. The first of these two blogs comes from Mark Vella. I have known Mark since 1992 when he worked as a radio presenter on Malta's first privately owned talk station: Radio One Live. His blog is called Ix-Xifer. I am also quite pleased that unlike my blog it is written in Maltese. If/when Ix-Xifer takes off, perhaps I should contribute some comments in Maltese to the blogosphere. The other political blog "advocates individual freedom and responsibility, limited government and the defence of Western political values" under the unusual title Malta, 9 Thermidor.

One of the pre-last-May blogs has disappeared completely. It was a radical right-wing blog by a young man from Dingli, I believe. I wonder what happened to him and his blog. Something tells me that there's some link between him and Jenny. Then again I think it's best to stop here because the rest is just gossip.

Thanks for giving some publicity to my political blog "Malta, 9 Thermidor". Keeping to a daily committment is tough but I'll try!

"Something tells me that there are probably also some blogs created via LiveJournal or some other blogging community, but I don't really have the time to research them right now"Apart from mine ( there are several MT blogs on livejournal, but I too haven't really had time to sift through them to find which ones I like and which ones I don't... but they do exist, and are updated regularly, even though I'm reasonably certain you remain one of the most prolific maltese bloggers on any blogging service!
