Under Construction

Things are changing up around here!

I’m back in New York now and I head off to London in exactly two weeks.  I’m figuring that will be the start of a new phase for this blog, as well as a return to the travel blogging (or really, living abroad) that started it all.

I figured it was as good a time as any for an identity makeover, because there were a few issues with my old blog name/address combo that I’ve been wanting to resolve for a while now:

  1. The “Julie’s in New Zealand” phrase didn’t make sense anymore, so that had to go!
  2. The URL was really long, and made it hard to remember for people who keep up with my blog simply by checking the website every so often.
  3. The URL and the name of my blog didn’t match, and I wanted them to.  I thought about switching to some variation of www.thereandbackagain.com, but I decided to just switch it all up.  I liked There and Back Again for the Tolkien and NZ references, as well as the way it just seems to fit my story, but it’s obviously a phrase I got from somewhere else and could leave me with copyrighting issues down the line.  Not worth it!

Let’s all have a moment of silence for My Life as a Kiwi and There & Back Again.  Don’t worry, I promise I won’t keep flip-flopping on ya – hopefully third time’s a charm!  So update your bookmark links or reader subscriptions to www.alifeexotic.com – although juliesinnewzealand.blogspot.com will still redirect here, too.

I might be tweaking things for a little while until it’s all updated, so bear with me.  Things are pretty crazy here at the moment so I have no idea if I’ll be updating before the big move or not.  I’ll get back to you when my blog is over its identity crisis.

Thoughts?  Suggestions?
