Dear Viewers, readers, friends, families and residents:
It is with not without a little sadness that I sit here and tell you that the days of NewBlogswick have come to an end.
This project started with a mission, one that I am proud of to this day. I sought to help the cramped residents of New Brunswick, NJ understand each other a little better. I wanted to help us realize that we were all in that city together. Thanks to dedication and a somewhat reckless advertising/graffiti campaign, more people saw that blog than I could ever have hope for. I like to think that, in a small way, the goal was achieved.
It has been a few years since I left New Brunswick and this blog has since taken on a number of iterations. None of which, I’m sad to say, were as good as the original.
Today, I am living in Moldova, a former Soviet republic in Eastern Europe. I have decided that the end of this project is long overdue. I’m moving forward.
To those few (2, according to Google Analytics) people who still visit this site, I thank you. There are many others who have long since stopped visiting, but I would like to thank them to. If you are so inclined to continue viewing my work, you will find me at mcnrny.tumblr.com for the time being. My new blog will be called Блогоразумие (blogorazumiye) from the Russian word благоразумие which means ‘sense.’
My goal will be much the same as it was for NewBlogswick but instead of talking simply to others in New Brunswick, I wish to demonstrate to my friends all over the world that perhaps geographical location doesn’t have such a profound effect on the character and values of a person. Tell your friends.
Thank you very much for your time, I hope we meet soon. Always feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
