Is There Any Indonesian Expat Male Bloggers Out There? April 3, 2008

Posted by finallywoken in Uncategorized.

I have been consistently blogwalking everyday, trying to find Indonesian bloggers who live abroad or have ever lived overseas, to list them in our Expat Blog section. One thing I notice, while it is very easy to find Indonesian female expat bloggers, male bloggers are like a rare gem: you know it’s there, you can see the glitz, but you can’t reach it. It feels like they live in a different parallel universe!

Since I never list people’s blog without their prior authorization, I usually leave comment or send email to the blog owner. Female bloggers are usually very responsive and positively support the idea, and quickly say yes to my proposal. I don’t have such luck with male bloggers though. They’re difficult to find, and seldom to respond my query.

Not that it matters so much, though. Some people choose to remain anonymous and by their pseudonyms we couldn’t guess whether they are male or female. But glancing at this growing expat blog list, I begin to wonder: Is there any Indonesian expat male bloggers out there?

Let me know if you know one!

Have you tried Treespotter?

or did he refuse and say no?

Miss Lai Lai,

I don’t know that Treespotter is Indonesian. Will ask him…. ๐Ÿ™‚

Hey, I’m still out there… ๐Ÿ™‚

I looked into my Google Reader again and found many male Indonesian-living-abroad bloggers. On responsiveness, I guess in my case there are times where I don’t blog for weeks due to my work. On pseudonyms, I guess some guys find it cool… *LOL* (you can easily find their names though, with a couple more clicks)

Some of them are:
Tasa’s Guebukanmonyet
Sherwin’s Goresan Ngawur
Fatih’s A. Fatih Syuhud
Jeff’s Anymatters
Philips’ Just My Two Cents
Novel’s A Novel Way of Novel
Beni’s Overseas Think Tank for Indonesia
Luigi’s Our Peacekeeping Journey
Arthur’s Mangaranap
