Laurie Matherne from Honduras Gumbo shares three theories about why expatriates in Honduras have stopped blogging: it's too dangerous, the economic crisis has forced many to leave, and those who stay “are forced to live in near chaos.”

She adds:

Personally, I am forced to spend more of my time just trying to maintain my projects and my personal life in Honduras. Each day, I come home exhausted just trying to survive. Many nights, the quiet is interrupted by rounds of gunfire. Not a great environment to think of sanguine, perky posts of daily life anecdotes.
