Blogs I Love

Some of my favorite blogs - I'm always adding, and I don't take away even if the blog itself seems to be dead.


Women Rule The World, or at least, Taiwan

Katy's Blog (I just realized that writer Katy Hui-wen Hung has a blog!)


Typing To Taipei (Monica Hart's blog, strong events focus)

Polish Girl In Taiwan (popular travel spots in Taiwan - a lot of these have been blogged before, but her posts are more recent)

Vegan Dan Dan (Dan Dan's blog on veganism - I'm not vegan but it's interesting nonetheless)

My Several Worlds (structured more like a travel website than a blog)

Veronika's Adventure (a general travel blog, but her Taiwan archives are good)

Taiwanxifu (stopped updating a few years ago, most recent post that pops up is 2011)

Tricky Taipei (some interesting content - design and branding isn't my bag but what she does, she does well)

My Little Taiwan (still about Taiwan, though I think the writer moved to Berlin)

All Aboard Taiwan (travel blog updated every few months it seems)



Current Affairs in Taiwan

Ketagalan Media (more of a 'new media' outfit than a blog; I write for them occasionally)

The View From Taiwan (ended, but still has great content)

Letters from Taiwan (rarely posts)

Frozen Garlic (a blog about elections)

Taiwan In Perspective (more of a current affairs website, heavily defense-oriented)

Taiwan Insight (again not really a blog, but good)

New Bloom (not exactly a blog like the others - good for very local coverage)

The Scholar's Stage (Tanner Greer's excellent blog - not always about Taiwan but when it is, it's great)


The Writing Baron (James Baron's blog on current affairs)

Taiwanreporter (German-language blog by Taiwan-based reporter Klaus Bardenhagen)

In Beijing (don't let the name fool you, Swedish journalist Jojje Olsson is in Taiwan - mix of Swedish and English content)

Taiwan Sentinel (technically a news site)

Taipei Teen Tribune (want to know what Taiwanese teens think? I do!)


Taiwan Gazette (again, technically journalism, but is there a big difference these days?)

Taiwanese Culture, History, Hiking, Insights and Travel

Balancing Frogs (my husband Brendan's blog: lots of book reviews and general musing)

Taiwan Scene (official blog of MyTaiwanTour: I'm a guest columnist)

Synapticism (lots of urban exploration and road trips)

Josh Ellis Photography (beautiful photos of places tourists rarely go)

The Daily Bubble Tea (oldie and goodie)

Hidden Taiwan (interesting places and history)

Spiritual Travels (Nick Kembel's blog about...spiritual travels. I'm not very, uh, spiritual but Nick's a good writer)

Taiwan Everything (some interesting, rarely-visited destinations - more of a website than a blog)

Pashan (stopped updating in 2009, sadly)

Foreigners in Taiwan (interesting places)

Poagao's Journal (by foreigner-turned-Taiwan-citizen TC Lin, who seems to have been around longer than any of us)

Lief In Taiwan (ended in 2012 it seems)

Peasants Taiwan (satire blog, great for a laugh)
