Our Favourite Bloggers

We take a look at our favourite bloggers in Saudi Arabia and why we love their blogs.

Our Favourite Bloggers
While spending a lot of our time online looking up blogs has become almost a second nature to regular surfers of the World Wide Web. We have traveled from region to region in the Gulf to bring you our favourite blogs. Saudi Arabia has a diverse number of people, many who live there as expats and many who have settled into the life there with a Saudi spouse. Bloggers are important contributors to the online audience as they usually have a very personal take or story about a situation and their advice can be personal. Bloggers also tend to have some of the best photographs.
