American Expat Blog List

Tuesday, January 24, 2006

During the hardest part of my transition to living in the UK, I started my blog and I have to say it was very therapeutic. When you're in a strange place and don't know anyone, it's easy to feel invisible. There were days that I thought if I stopped in the middle of a crowed street and screamed at the top of my lungs - no-one would hear me. This blog, gave me my voice and I can't say enough how helpful that was.
At that time, I thought it would be great to be able to read other blogs to see how others in the same situation were dealing with life here. I belong to forums where you can leave posts, but it's not the same as a personal blog entry. On a blog you can express yourself in a much more meaningful way. I thought - wouldn't it be nice if there was a list compiled of people going through the same thing, so I have decided to compile just that and publish it on the web so that others can benefit from it.
I have quite a few sites already and if this sounds like something you'd like to participate in - click the comments link below and fill out the form with as much of the following information you are comfortable with or you can e-mail the information to Erren@pond-hopper.com
