In the search for the Top 10 Trinidad and Tobago Blogs some interesting ones were uncovered via the comments and contact form submissions.

While this list is up for debate and interpretation I think it represents a broad cross section of topics while maintaining consistent content quality.

Let me know your thoughts on the ranking as well as what you would have included or excluded.

I may follow up with my thoughts on each specific choice in a future post or within the comments.

Hey! I’m number two!!! This really means alot to me, Allyuh. I know I have a lot of American readers, but i really means so much that Trinis are reading my site as well. I am doing my best to infuse Trinidad into everything I do, and to keep our culture in the spotlight. So thank you!
Big respect!

Afrobella.com should be first as Carnival is seasonal.

yeah but trini carnival is celebrated year round in various parts of the world and the band launching process and politics of carnival are hardly confined. i think saucy is doing a great job keeping the blog content alive outside of the Dec-Feb crunch :)

Thanks for the bligh Dre. Who’d a thunk my seriousy little blog would get a blight. As they say in the award shows, “I’d like to thank ma, pa, and everyone else for this. It means a lot to me. It’s so great to be mentioned in this category with all these other great people. I never expected it. Congrats to everyone. Thank you”. Lol. I mean it eh.

To fairly gauge a Blog, one should start with the first post and determine the consistency to its last. If there are variations in its content, the author has not stayed
true to his or her subject. Blogs that lift images, or post and write a commentary in wit are just for entertainment purposes – nothing more or less, but to amuse. And like entertainment that is all it. There are others who have taken consideration by working hard at it.

The internet is one of the greatest inventions, and Blogs in particular have given individuals to share their ideas through visuals, text, sound and moving pictures, all stored by Google, Yahoo or Microsoft, remember this. In retrospect, this is a type of virtual capsule of history where the motives behind our socialites realized that people from all over the world strived for the very same things.

Thank you for your consideration

Feel free to disagree, but Raymond Ramcharitar’s blog is the best local blog I read. I might not agree with all he writes but his words seem to come from true emotion. http://trinidadmediaartsculture.blogspot.com/ How bout we see some other alternatives in the comments here?

Thanks Sherwin, it would be interesting to see where this would have ended up if you had posted it in the nominations post.

Thanks for sharing that, Sherwin, I’ve been a longtime admirer of Raymond Ramcharitar’s writing and I had no idea he had a blog! I will link him immediately. I am also a big fan of Attilah’s blog, Four Fingers and a Thumb, and when Hottie is into the blogging (at Modest Goddess, she can be really good as well.

Thanks for the honour of the top spot with my little ole “fluff” blog, hinestly I would be quite happy being anywhere on your top 10 listing! :D

Blogging is such a personal thing and that’s what makes it so great; in the spirit of the “freedom” of internet it is pretty cool to know that as bloggers we can write about anything,even though it might be trite and mundane to some, and get others who are on the same page to come along for the ride. The best part about blogging for me is the people who visit and the little community that emerged from a mutual love of Carnival.

Some of your top 10 are blogs I regularly vist while others I will be checking out for the first time.

You didn’t check the Caribbean Blog List I’ve been maintaining since… at least 2 years now.

http://www.knowprose.com/caribbeanbloglist

I’m not on the list, but then I’m not Trini-centric. The world is a little bigger for me. ;-)

you are right about not being trini-centric…
would you agree though that an explosion of local blogs has taken place in the last couple of months?
