Like many of us, I've been contemplating the bloggy thing (not as seriously as some, but contemplating all the same.) I think the time has come to make some decisions. Do I really have time for this? Where is it all leading? You know the sort of questions. So,......
Announcing the arrival of a shiny new blog. Yes, that's right! Because I have SO much free time, I am launching another blog. It's called Pond Parleys, and will be co-hosted by Mike Harling of the Postcards from Across the Pond blog. Following our spectular radio debut last week on BBC Radio 5, Mike and I decided we wanted to ride the wave and continue our cross-channel discussions on a variety of issues. It will go live on Monday, but you can have a sneak peek now.
Each week, we will both answer a question or debate some US/UK issue. Initially, we will come up with the topics, but we welcome suggestions from readers and hope to have that as the on-going format. As you know, neither of us claim to be academics, politicians or persons of gravitas, so even though the subject matter might be provocative and topical, we won't get too full of hot air and bore the pants off everyone.
And friends, you don't have to be an expat to contribute. The idea is to discuss issues from both US and UK perspectives, so you can chime in with your own ten cents/pence worth. Who knows, we might even build some much needed bridges and be invited onto Obama's World Bridge-Building team. (Just made that up. One can hope.)
And for those of you who want to continue reading my usual cornucopia of stuff, stick around, I'll still be blogging here too.
