Any good expat blogs?
« on: March 06, 2019, 12:38:13 AM »
Hey, I'm wondering if anyone can recommend decent expat blogs? Keen to read how those who live full/part-time in Philippines are finding the experience. Do any of the contributors here maintain blogs? Thanks!

I have a website (listed on my profile). Not sure  if I can recommend it😁. It started as a way to describe the building of my house in Puerto Princesa but grew to include more about the Philippines then my personal life. I then decided that I should convert it to my autobiography which I am slowly doing now. It is a 'work in progress', but maybe you can find something of interest there 😉

Hey Colin, good to see a fellow Brit here. Thanks for that - very interesting blog. Was just reading your story there but will dig deeper later. Interesting hobbies too - I would love to get into sailing!

I have also been working on a memoir of my time in South East Asia. I found it hard - I ended up with lots of vignettes but no narrative backbone!

If you need a reviewer or anyone to bounce ideas off please ping me.

Hi CF, I am working on my laptop for my memoirs, but going to the website ocasionally to try to rearange it to incorperate the extra information. Like you, I find it difficult to produce a reasonable theme  :(. Maybe I will start a new free site, or get around to producing my own paid site. I am collecting old family photos at the moment and will need to enhance them before I can use them. I will also need to do some research into the family tree.

If I had known I was so popular I would have returned sooner 😏😀😃.
I could continue  the long running  series (more than 43 episodes) of my house build posts, but all but number 1 now belong to 'guest' and there does not seem to be any way to add to them.

There are plenty, just google "expat in Philippines" and you will get plenty. Several articles about real estate in Philippines and other useful information. Sometimes people put interesting comments and opinions about there like in this country. Can be worth a look too.
