An Apology

Just before Christmas 2008, I felt inspired to create a blog describing my experiences as an Englishman living in the US. I expanded upon that idea to include all kinds of topics I felt might be of interest to Brits in the US, Americans in the UK, Anglophiles, Americophiles and anyone interested in the crossing of cultures. I committed myself to trying to spend a little time every day writing, editing, researching for, or promoting my little blog. I believe I did quite well, receiving some wonderful comments of support and quite a few readers along the way. To those people, I apologize for my extended absence.

In September 2009, my daughter started school. One would think this might result in me having extra free time to devote to An Englishman in New Jersey, and I did think that myself. However, it resulted in me taking on more commitments, which in turn meant I actually had less free time available. My blogging therefore came to a grinding halt.

That brings me to today, a little over a year after I launched my blog. Energized by a recent trip back to England, and with plenty of experiences to share, I want to start things off again. I believe I can devote the time necessary to do that, if you're willing to sit next to me at the bar and listen to me ramble on once more...

"willing to sit next to me at the bar and listen to me ramble on once more..." - for sure! Ramble away.

"anyone interested in the crossing of cultures" - I like that.

Welcome back! I don't usually comment, but I've been reading your blog for several months and I missed it.

Thank you all for your comments and enthusiastic "Welcome backs!"

@Cothu - Powers & Guinness? For Sure!

@Jade - thanks for coming out of "lurkdom" and welcoming me back!

As you have probably seen, I continue to "ramble away!"
