Digital space seems to have taken over the world, making communication immediate. Moreover, websites and social media have also become a great platform for independent initiatives. Blogs showcase talented, creative, artistic writers without need for a publisher or a publicist. We have selected five “made in SMA” for your delight.
Get ready for a brain massage and spend some time with us on these interesting blogs.
Sean and Mittie
Travel and lifestyle. This blog is by the collaboration of one of San Miguel’s favorite couples: dancer, writer, and model Mittie Roger and photographer Sean Reagan. The content is refreshing, the travel tips always good, and the photography great.

Photo and Stuff
Photography. This blog is mostly visual, filled with photography by young San Miguel artist Angel Miquel. His work is mostly focused on landscape, both nature and urban. Mostly of his work is located in SMA. He’s currently working on a series, “Mountains of México.”
“My name is Angel Miquel, I’m from San Miguel de Allende and I’m a photographer. I started this blog wanting to show my work and my passion for photography (personal, not professional). But also to leave aside the Facebook character that I’ve created and its monotony.”
Chubby Love is Not a Crime
Literature and humor. Personal and literary catharsis by the author in Spanish.
“Tania Noriz is a young female of 38, severely affected by the wishful thinking syndrome. According to some people, especially the father of her child, she tends to see, severely and in a sick way, things that are not there and to create drama when she realizes that reality is very different from what she has drawn in her head. Her sense of maturity has led her to dye her hair bright red and segment her reality in various ways, which has caused, among other things, her holy mother to suggest her to quickly wrap herself in a newspaper sheet as convenience store owners do with unripe avocados to encourage maturity ,so she would please grow up.”
Five in the Bed
Escapades of a family in México and beyond by writer Harmeet Kaur Sidhu.
“Five in the Bed will tell the tales of a British expat couple and their Mexican-born children over the next 10 years. Of the enchanting, and the ordinary. Of our discoveries and of our hiccups. Of our escapades as a family of five. We have great ambitions. I hope our presence brings you warmth and makes you chuckle.”
