We're Famous

An editor of One Samoa, a "directory for All Things Samoan! From Samoan legends to international calling rates, use our customized search engine to find exactly what you're looking for!" for the Samoan community living abroad, has found our blog. She had very nice things to say about us and recommended that others read the blog.

We’ve come across a few blogs now written by travelers about their adventures in Samoa.

They’ve been interesting - it’s not always easy for us as Samoans to read other people’s (sometimes unflattering) opinions about the islands we love.

With this one, we were willing to make an exception.

...

That’s the other thing we love about this blog. You can tell that Sara and Cale are not just in Samoa to serve, but also to learn.

They take care to describe aspects of Samoan culture - like our fire-knife dancing or the history behind Samoa’s Independence Day - with respect and accuracy.


You can see all that One Samoa had to say about us here. Also, if you are just interested in Samoan culture or history, you should check out One Samoa. There are some interesting stories on the site.

Of course, I am biased, but I agree with the editor of One Samoa...you do write a good blog, and your journalism background helps you go beyond making it a "stream of consciousness" thing into something we all can learn a bit more from. And you show us a lot of the beauty that is this land and people. Thanks kiddo. I'm with Annette!
