Profile of Tunisian Blogosphere

The Tunisian blogosphere must be one of the most vibrant and fastest growing blogospheres in the Arab world. At the time being, there are over 70 active blogs, maintained by Tunisians in Tunisia, France, Canada, USA, Saudi Arabia and Romania.

TN-Blogs is a directory that groups most of these blogs, and features an aggregator that collects and publishes posts from all these blogs.

Among these blogs, only 30% belong to female bloggers.
The ages of Tunisian bloggers range from 18 to the early 30's.
Most Tunisian blogs are in French, with only 11 in English and 2 in Arabic.

When it comes to hosting, most Tunisian blogs are hosted on free blogging services, mainly blogger, then hautetfort.

The topics discussed on these blogs mostly cover personal issues, social affairs, comments on news and various thoughts and opinions.

Most Tunisian bloggers link to each other and leave comments and carry discussions within the boundaries of the Tunisian blogosphere, creating a sort of community-like feeling that welcomes new bloggers and encourages them to keep on blogging.

Blogger meetups are being held on a monthly basis as an opportunity for bloggers to get to know each other, carry some online discussions into the real world, talk about blogging and how to spread it, and just have fun.
