I want to say a big hello to all the folks that have stopped by since I was Freshly Pressed.
This is the first time I’ve ever been Pressed, and I’m pretty stoked about the whole thing. I have two things I wanted to mention, though.
Thing the first: My posts aren’t usually so oriented in geek culture as that last one. I do reference genre television and movies from time to time, like in this post over here, but most of the time it’s a little more general. I write about life in Germany, about my travels, about the cool things I see in other cities and countries, and about whatever happens to pop up in my head.
Thing the second: When I scheduled my posts for this week and next, I wasn’t counting on the influx of traffic that you get from being Freshly Pressed. I’m really not used to having a lot of traffic at all. Even my post about the European Dog Sled Championships got more views than my sci-fi post before I got Freshly Pressed.
I have a cool post about trains set to post on Monday while I’m in an airplane, but I’m not sure yet what I’ll post after that, because I generally only have one or two posts ready ahead of time. My expats-in-scifi post went up right before two insanely busy weeks where I’m not really going to be at a computer. so there might be a little bit of a lull in the next two weeks.
That being said, if you’re the sort of blog reader who doesn’t mind if a blog only gives you new material once or twice a week, I’m probably your guy. Please come in, make yourself comfortable, and have a nice cuppa tea! I’ll be back soon, I promise!
