Yes, people still read blogs; here are a list of 20+ individuals whose content I’ve read that write about Caribbean content (you don’t have to be from the Caribbean to enjoy and love the actual Caribbean just FYI). Also, I feel like I don’t hear about us ENOUGH in mainstream media; so CHEERS to visibility.
Also please note, this is not an extensive list of Caribbean bloggers and if you know of any more drop them in the comments below. *please click on names and words highlighted in pink to visit their socials/websites*
