Hello, my name is Stella and I am the author of this new blog about Bali.
I moved to Bali couple of years ago and I started with a blog about this island in my native language (which is not English). Since then I’ve contemplated (almost 2 years!) whether I should launch an English version of my blog. I could never make a decision constantly weighing the ‘pros’ and ‘cons’.
English is not my native language and writing in English means it’s not going to be perfect. I have several blogs in Russian (my native language), one being about Bali (BaliBlogger.ru). Can I handle one more? There are already so many sites about Bali in English and I’ve constantly debated if I should create another one.
There are several reasons as to why I’ve decided an English translated version of my BaliBlogger. For more than two years, my Russian version of BaliBlogger became the #1 blog about Bali in Russia. Every time I was trying to find something about Bali in English, the information wasn’t there, or it wasn’t presented in the way I would have liked it to be. In addition, all my non-Russian friends were eager to read my blog, but couldn’t do so because Google translation is not so good ;).
All though I am still unsure if this is a good idea, I decided to give it a try. So welcome to my BaliBlogger!
If you are interested to know more about my story, how a Russian girl ended up living in Bali and writing blogs about this place, check out ‘About‘ page.
If by chance you know Russian, I suggest you check the russian version of BaliBlogger – it’s more full so far.
