Way down there near the equator you’ll discover in “Hustlebox.com” a blog coming directly from the heart of an island once belonging to The Netherlands. That’s the same as Holland just in case you didn’t already know it. This means that if you cannot read nor understand the guttural language called Dutch, then you are bound to shake your head and search elsewhere. However, if like me you are an honored member of the fortunate few who can figure out this language called Dutch, then perhaps this might be an interesting stopover. While this blog was originally started in English, the author decided that he could better cater to the real readers by switching over. Go Dutch.
This author is a Dutch male in his twenties who was born and raised in good old Amsterdam. He moved with his parents to Middle America when he was seven, and he eventually ended up residing in the beautiful country of Curacao. Anyone know where that is? He feels lucky to have been able to experience new adventures and considers himself a true “tropenkind” (tropical boy).
Entries here cover the usual topics like: music, films, turning twenty-five, trying to get a passport, the hassles of moving and of course “Dames op Curacao” (women of Curacao).
The design of this site is sweet and simple and adheres to a minimal approach. There is not really that much content yet, but it seems to be growing. Basically the entries are personal accounts of daily events, interesting tid-bits of information for those curious enough to read through the blog.
While I cannot fairly give a high score to this site which has just started, I feel that there is alot of potential. As a so-called working graphical designer for the Internet, to be honest I would have expected more from this site. But give him time.
From one Dutchie to another, all I can say is “heel veel succes en tot de volgende keer.” In the meantime, drop by and see it for yourself.Hustlebox.com
