Since starting my own blog, The White Punjabi Bride, I have stumbled across many, many more bloggers who like me have married into the Indian Culture. So as a quick reference for anyone else who is newly married into the culture or perhaps just starting a bi-cultural relationship, here are the blogs to add to your favourites list. You will find plenty of hints & tips about being in a bi-cultural relationship or marriage, raising a multicultural family and read about their experiences living the Indian lifestyle.
The list of bloggers continues to grow so I thought it was about time to give it a quick update and include all the new blogs I have since come across. Some of the below blogs are no longer updated however they are still a good source albeit they don't have any new content.
If there are any that I have missed then be sure to leave comments below with the website address so that I may include them. To those bloggers I have listed I apologise if I have made any errors in my summary of your blog - please let me know if I have done so.
