Wales Blogs

Wales (or Cymry, in modern Welsh) is a rugged land which is home to three million people, each one as fiercely proud of their homeland as the last. It is as distinct in its own identity as the other three countries making up the United Kingdom, with a colonisation history dating back to Roman times and a unique national language which has escaped extinction over the last century. Interestingly, even though there is currently no national daily newspaper in Welsh, there are a multitude of blogs written in both Welsh and English depicting the life, politics, tourism and arts in the country - so much so, we are almost certain that the ratio of people blogging in Wales is higher than any other country we have surveyed for awards so far. And without further ado...
