Expats and the K-blogosphere have definitely experienced a measure of recognition in 2009. A number of bloggers and other writers have found their words used in almost every English language newspaper in Korea, along with every expat-focused magazine and several expat-driven websites. A few new websites have opened or relaunched in '09 - Chatjip
is still fairly new as of the end of the year; seoulstyle.com
has been relaunched. many excellent blogs continue to run strong, while several new ones have been quite interesting to read. Hat tips to Hermit Hideaways
, and Dating in Korea
for being just a few of the better blogs I've discovered this year.
