A New Blog

The time has come and with 2009 I have decided to get myself a new online home. 

lx.nomadlife.org was awesome, I had some great times there and I especially enjoyed being part of the nomadlife community but the time always comes for something different,

I’d been wondering about blogger vs. wordpress for some time now, it seemed like every blogger worth their salt is on wordpress these days, so I finally decided to make the switch. I am purposefully not migrating my content from the old blog to this one because I want a totally fresh start.

I want to take my blogging more seriously these days. Some of the things you can expect from this blog are:

– reviews of things like movies, books and maybe music

– my travels, I’m making a much bigger effort to document my travels

– commentary on current affairs, news, events, arts and fashion.

– my thoughts on random things or whatever comes to mind

and the reason why the blog is called “The Zeitgeist” is because one thing i’m interested in is the way trends are formed and played, the sort of things that are “in” or “out” at a particular time, how these things vary from country to country, city to city, what sort of things people are talking about both on and offline and generally the things that I see as definitive for our times, so you can look forward to a lot of points on that subject also.

So please susbcribe to this blog on your readers, bookmark it, change the link on your blogroll (and let me know so I can add you to mine) and all the other stuff that goes with blog migration.

Cheers,

Alex

    Hello!
    First comment on your new blog! Will add this to my feed 🙂 + looking forward to some regular posting :P.

    I’ve been considering switching hosts for a while (after 4+ yrs at xanga) — but haven’t been completely sold by either blogger / wordpress.

    On behalf of the nomadlife community, may I be the first to say, you’re dead to me.

    Saw your little comment battle with that guy who wrote the post about Israel on Brazen Careerist and I was mentally cheering you on, like yeah! I know that guy! 🙂 You never shy away from an argument, that’s for sure… 😉

    Anyways, I made the switch from nomadlife a while ago too, wordpress is a whole lot better. And suddenly after starting on wordpress I felt myself taking my blog more seriously. Cool isn’t it?

    p.s. just left Bangkok, it was awesome, will definitely have to catch you up on everything soon. In the meantime I’m def. subscribing to your blog!

    Nisha,
    Haha thanks! I’m trying to stay out of controversial internet arguments but man that one was just impossible to resist, I had to wade into the fray on that one! Speaking of which, have you seen the storm on Tom Gara’s nomadlife blog? Well some of it has been constructive and some of it not quite but it’s very interesting, you should check it out

    Yeah I wanted to talk to you about the switch you made and what you think and all that, so am going to stake you out on messenger at some point! But yes I also find wordpress easier to use and therefore am taking blogging a lot more seriously!

    And you have to tell me all about your trip!
