Litvish Bloggers

I was IM-ing with a friend and we noted that although there are many Modern Orthodox Bloggers and a number of Chassidic Bloggers, are are almost no Litvish/Yeshivish Bloggers.

I suggested that the internet and blogging is (more or less) socially accepted in the Modern Orthodox community. And Chassidim are stuck in their community, so blogging serves as an outlet. For most litvish the option of leaving the Yeshiva and working is available (or even staying as part of the overall Litvish community and indulding one's taste for popular culture). Therefore blogging is neither condoned nor an outlet.

It's not a great answer, but if you have an alternative one, please suggest it.
