New Blog is Up!

On December 9th I'll be headed to South Africa. One of the goals of the trip is to keep an on-line journal of my five week trip, so I've started a new blog here and I plan to do preliminary posts soon. There are no formal posts yet, but if you click on the about tab you'll get an intro about the trip and some very good links.

I like wordpress. I tried to set up a new blog a few months ago and had trouble but today I gave myself plenty of time, and plenty of coffee, and realized that wordpress is easier than I thought. Hmmm...should I be saying this on a blog created by blogspot? Well, blogspot has its merits too, after all it's the provider who got me started blogging in the first place.

As for Ian's Blog II? It's time to move on I think. I haven't posted in over a month as my sister Emily gently reminds me every-so-often (she's such an editor). The trip to Africa is really at the forefront of everything right now, along with tons of reading and papers for school, so I think I'll retire this blog. I like the idea of having blogs end at some point and taking up new ones, maybe because one day I'll be able to mark stages in my life this way.

What a great idea. Using different blogs as a bookmark for different parts of your life. I don't think I could do that. I'm attached to my blog, it has such a history (for me at least!). You know, you're the one that got me started on this; I blame you. Ha! I tried starting another one recently, with stuff that I didn't want on this blog. But it was too much work keeping up two. It's funny. I spent time trying to get people (like my family) to read my blog, and then once they did I felt (somehow) betrayed by my blog. As soon as they started reading it I had to stop writing about them! Sigh. I look forward to the new blog and putting it as a link on my sad old one.

IM said...

yea, I feel really mixed emotions about letting this blog go too. Like for one thing I realize that my new blog is so specific that I'll no longer be able to write about how the weird salad-type-thing I had for lunch is doing a number on my small intestines, unless of course it happens in South Africa. Keeping two going will be impossible though, so I'm going to do the SA one until that chapter's over and then do an Ian's Blog II (part II). Honestly, I love blogging, keeps a guy sane I think, so hopefully this trip will inspire me to get back to semi-regular posts.
cheers Jeremy!

Great idea. Can't wait to follow you on the new blog, although it will be sad to see this one go.

I look forward to the new one, too, and hope you start something else going when you get back.

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I make money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I get now up to 2G a day , and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I'm very close at catching at last a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my blog to get additional info.
