I was very impressed with “From Geocities to MTYBlogs: The History of Monterreyâ€™s Blogosphere” at Global Voices Online.
The following Mexican-centered history of weblogs was first published as a three part series on RegioBlogs by contributor, Dr. Alan Flores. It was translated by Andres Hardrada and David Sasaki and has been edited for brevity and clarity.
I don’t know anything about the blogosphere in Monterrey, but I found this academic paper very informative. Favorite note in this:
I agree with Eduardoâ€™s comment: â€œmany people have weblogs; they just donâ€™t know they do. For them itâ€™s just a â€œwebsiteâ€, their â€œmyspaceâ€ or their â€œMSN Spaces.â€
I don’t blog in Spanish, though I probably could. I don’t monitor blogging in Mexico, since keeping up with blogging in the US is hard enough. It’s nice to know, though, that borders really are nonexistent online.
