I suspended writing on my long-running bignoseduglyguy.com
weblog a few months back in favour of concentrating on recording our emigration experiences here. Whilst I have never been the most consistent of bloggers, I now intend to resume blogging there as well as here and elsewhere. Now I am settling to my new life and work routine, I am feeling the desire to be looking around the web again and writing on other subjects. This being the case, I am pretty sure that I will now split my blogging across the two sites.
No.8 Wire was always intended to be a collection of impressions and recollections centered around our experience as migrants in New Zealand. This being the case, I hope to keep that focus as the core of my writing here whilst broadening it a little to include things of interest to friends and family around the globe.
bignoseduglyguy will resume where it left off - as a stream of geeky bits and bobs, comments and critiques, fun and philosophy - namely a common or garden blog.
As for writing elsewhere, I was involved in the London
launch of the ever-growing Metroblogging
franchise and still intend to post there occasionally as a 'foreign correspondent' though, now I have sorted shelter, food and warmth for the family, I might just have time to work on something else with Sean and the crew
. Last but not least, I still hold out a small hope for making time to work on something with my good friends Chuck
and Roger. Though we are all more than busy with our various lives, careers and families, I still fondly recall the fun we had writing for Chuck's most excellent but now-dormant happypalm.com
