    Our Blogger Community

    The Abruzzo Blogger Community strives to provide a fabulous one-stop website for those seeking an insightful read about Abruzzo in English.

    It features great posts by Abruzzo’s 12 best bloggers, whose American, Australian, British and Italian nationalities offer insight across a wide range of subjects including food & wine, culture, events, travel and ancestry.

    The community was established, in part, to give due justice to the region which is often slighted in guide books or left out completely as in the case of Fodor’s Italy 2015 guidebook.

    63% of our readers are American, thereafter split between the UK, Italy, Canada and Australia.

    In December 2014 the site received 604 visitors; 70% were new and 30% were repeat visitors. ABC has 629 subscriptions to its seasonal newsletter.

    Across social media we are most frequently read by females between the ages of 35-44 and based in the USA.
