The state of the argentinean blogosphere: Entre Rios

Fourth delivery of entries dedicated to argentinean provinces blogosphere. This time it's turn of Entre Rios, a neighbor of Buenos Aires province. One of the topics we board the most in these reports is knowing if there is a perception of “community” among bloggers that are located within a determined geographic space. Such impression doesn't seem to be too present in the entrerriana blogosphere. As Victor Bracco, from vbracco, says: “unfortunately, I don't know or haven't had any meetings with other bloggers; I did get to meet people closer to the programming and development environment, but no bloggers at all”. Victor is probably one of the most outstading representatives of entrerrianos blogs, and he states “honestly, I started a blog without much knowing it. I'm an informatics students and I've been a programmer for a few years, and one day a couple of years ago I heard something about WordPress. Because of my curious nature I downloaded and investigated it to find out what it was all about. I uploaded it to my website, installed it and started playing with it. From those first notes, there are very few registers (I guess only Google knows what I wrote) but soon afterwards I was writing more formal stuff, always within the informatics environment. Besides keeping a blog, he collaborates with the Sabros.us project, an interesting application that allows us to install a favorites manager, kind of a Del.icio.us, but directly to our own server or hosting space.

Another interesting example is Blogsfera, developed by Javier and which focuses in topics more related to technology. Javier is quite prolific and keeps other sites, such as Maten a mi suegra (“kill my moher in law”), more freestyle and humoristic, and Periodista Ciudadano (“citizen journalist”). Another blog linked to technology topics is FX Designs, mostly oriented to Internet issues.

Australia no Aparece is, on the other side, a blog of music we usually don't find in the radio. There are short reviews of albums and many references to new artists and trends.
Diego Efe's La Puñalada takes a wide variety of topics: music, technology, literature, among others. And Another Blog in the Wall is a blog of girls photos, usually from Argentina, and published in magazines.

To build this entry, I used the public register of blogs by provinces available at wiki de Blog Argentinos and in the Argenblogs directory.
