Bahrain Blogging Scene… Where is it?

28 Aug, '15

Bahrain-Blogging-Scene

[updated 5.9.15] I wanted to know what blogs are still being published in Bahrain and I went searching. I found eleven, other than this one. There must be more, surely. In 2006 when I was aggregating all the blogs I remember that the list exceeded 200 at one point. That number has crashed to eleven which are mainly concerned with lifestyle. Food and fashion is the top earner it seems. I remember MyBahrain.ME did a feature on the blogging scene last year with the ladies appearing in the picture above which offered a glimpse of the current blogging scene.

I’m very happy for their success of course and wish them a lot of luck, but am I missing something here? Aren’t there any other Bahraini blogs? If you know of any please contribute. I’d like an updated list to help nurture blogging in Bahrain again.

Here are the ones I found so far:

  1. [Lifestyle] Blonde in Bahrain
  2. [Food] Food and Tools
  3. [Food] The Slice of My Lyfe
  4. [Travel & Photography] Not just a Photo
    1. Rasha Yousif (portfolio site)
  5. [Food] Restless in Riffa
  6. [General] Rantings by Nouf
  7. [Fashion] Mara Mustafa
  8. [Tech] Waleed’s Tipnology
  9. [Tech] A7maDev’s Home
  10. [Fitness] Nerve Bullet
  11. [Photography] Lifeommentory

Know of any to be added to this illustrious list? Please enter the details in a comment below.

Update 29 Aug 2015:

How did I forget Suhail’s blog? It’s the only one currently touching on political as well as entrepreneurship and health topics, so here’s another one you definitely have to have in your bookmarks:

    A bird chirps far more exotically in the wild than behind the bars of a cage…

    • mahmood says:

      Yes. There is no questioning that fact. Still, one learns from how journalists allude to things and effect a response, if not change. Maybe a language change might encourage some. Not an ideal situation, but one that might be conducive to chirping without having to suffer a life in a cage?

    Hi Mahmood,
    Thank you for including me in your hall of fame 🙂 At the moment I can only think of two others, fashion blog http://www.trestouline.com and a lifestyle/food blogger across the water http://www.ohmytash.com who blogs about Bahrain on her visits.

  6. Nice post, we always tried to search for bloggers in Bahrain and it was very difficult. hope that there are something like a bloggers community with different activities, or a website such as http://lebaneseblogs.com

    anyhow, this is our blog http://www.dilmunicouple.com (Dilmuni Couple | Hussain & Mariam) related to culture, travel, and photography

There’s another newbie, a recent expat to our island, http://lifemeant.com/…. she’s got a writing style that I enjoy. Thanks for curating!
