New Blog

So, I’ve set myself up this new blog. I created it for two (unordered) reasons:

  • I’d like to keep the focus of Život v Cizine on life abroad, and so I needed somewhere else to put my more miscellaneous postings.
  • I was worried that my webgeekstress credentials were being eroded by my time spent teaching English. So, setting up a WordPress blog, which is really so much geekier than (which powers this blog), seemed like a good move. I like WordPress quite a bit: it’s much more powerful and flexible than blogger, and I may end up moving Život v Cizine over as well.

This new blog is lightly populated with some of the miscellaneous postings that had appeared on Život… It remains to be seen if I’ll be more dedicated to keeping this one up to date.

Why the Name?

According to the American Heritage Dictionary, a commonplace book is “a personal journal in which quotable passages, literary excerpts, and comments are written”. And since I’m using this to keep track of, and occasionally comment upon, (mostly web-based) things, it seemed an appropriate name.

Looking for more?
