The state of the argentinean blogosphere: Rosario, Santa Fe

Spanish Version of this article here.

Rosario is one of the biggest cities in Argentina, with Cordoba and Buenos Aires. For this reason, it's surprising to find that the city doesn't have a directory of blogs, although there are some of them operating as concentrators of initiatives related to this issue. The most interesting case is Dialogica, which besides being a blog with many updates per week, it gathers other initiatives related to the topic of education, such as Rosario Alternativo, Digicom Rosario, MediaLab Rosario , Tecnologías Digitales, Medline, Comunicación Audiovisual y Redacción I, among others. Dialogica also has a vlog and an images directory.

One of the most popular blogs in Rosario is s Contra las cuerdas, an excellent blog about music that although it's not too frequently updated, each text not only has a noticeable extension, but also the ability to raise polemic. Within the music topic, we can also find PlanetaX, the blog and website of a collective dedicated to experimental music.

Among the blogs dedicated to journalism and the media, we can find Periodismo por Periodistas. Among the personals, there's La frágil espiral descendente, which is rather focused on comics; Subdesarrollando, on technology; Nitrox, on cars; Nunca diré Nunca, and ¿Qué Pretende Usted de Mí?.

Among the blogs focused on humor and leisure, we find Blogged, featuring a provocative and politically incorrect kind of humor, and Leopoldo Jacinto, with many notes and pictures of girls.

To facilitate future notes on the argentinean provinces blogosphere, and because of the absence of directories where this information is easily available, I've created a wiki where anyone who has a blog in Argentina can add this information. You can find it here. Any help you can provide to facilitate the recollection of information will be greatly appreciated.
