People from Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania,

Please have a look at a blog I've recently found: Baltic Voice. It's a blog where people of Baltic origin are encouraged to discuss issues that concern their home countries.

Yes, after joking around about Estonia here and here, I finally got some feedback from a real Estonian!!! And not just an Estonian, but an Estonian exmo!!!

(Actually Canadian, but Estonian-Canadian...)

Wild, huh? I didn't even know there were any Estonian exmos.

This is what I love about the Internet. Even if I focus on an absurdly homogeneous category such as exmormons, I still end up interacting with an incredibly diverse group of people that I never would have met otherwise. And without even taking my butt out of the comfort of my computer chair -- just by blogging -- I get to not only learn more about far away places like Estonia, but I actually get to interact directly with people of such diverse backgrounds. It's truly a fantastic tool for helping people all over the world to understand each other better.

So everyone please welcome "Baltic Lass" to Outer Blogness!!! :D

Cool, Estonian-Canadian, eh! Wonder where in Canada -- maybe my neighbour?

Yeah, that would be cool, wouldn't it? :D

I'm not sure where she is in Canada, but maybe she'll comment on this post...

Chanson,

Thanks to the evil internet, there are now exmos everywhere! I am a Mexican exmo, however, I really am a Mexican-American Exmo, living in Utah & all...

slowly but surely, though it is happening....
