The post below will be going live on my new home at http://thailandmusings.thaivisa.com today at noon EST. I’m sending it out herre first because once I make the move I believe that this feed subscription will no longer work and you will need to come on over to the new home and re-subscribe. Yes I am very excited and I’m looking forward to seeing all my old friends over at my new home. Stop by and say “Hi” and subscribe to the new feed.
Hi everyone! I’m pleased and excited to welcome my long time readers and subscribers as well as all the new visitors to my new home here at ThaiVisa. If you are already a subscriber to Thailand Musings then don’t worry, I will be writing the same style of material over here at ThaiVisa. In fact, I will likely be writing a lot more of it then I have in the past, so if you enjoy my musings you are in for a treat. To those just meeting me for the first time I hope to see you around here for a very long time and get to know you all better as we go down the rabbit hole that is Thailand together. And before I go any further let me also thank George who has been kind enough to give me a new (and more spacious) home here at ThaiVisa.
To those who don’t know about me from the old Thailand Musings my name is Steve and I am an American who has been visiting Thailand for going on 14 years now. Several years ago I married a wonderful Thai woman who made an honest man out of me and through that marriage the idea to start Thailand Musings was born. The blog was a way for me to share my own thoughts and experiences about Thailand while (hopefully) giving something back to others who were looking for information about Thailand. Over the past 3 ½ years I have written about my views on Thai culture, relationships, language, posted some authentic Thai recipes, did some news reporting and have recently started focusing more on the tourism aspect of Thailand. I’ve also been able to meet some outstanding people through the blog and hear some wonderful stories. And I hope to continue in that vein over here at ThaiVisa.
Chances are you won’t always agree with me and that’s fine. Chances are I will be wrong in some instances and your comments will help me develop a different viewpoint about Thailand. And hopefully I can do the same for you.
Moving forward I have many different plans for adding content to the blog, both in terms of written content as well as pics and video. In most cases the content here is going to be geared more for the tourist or first time visitors to Thailand. I think ThaiVisa forum has many of the expat type questions covered very well and I wouldn’t want to compete with that With that being said, I do hope that all of you living in Thailand still take the time to come over and visit and leave comments to add to the conversation here. Your knowledge and experience is invaluable, especially for the new comers. The strength of ThaiVisa has always been its members and I hope that proves to be true for my musings on ThaiVisa as well.
Before I start getting called out I will make it clear from the start that I am not currently living in Thailand. The reason for this is twofold. First, we recently celebrated the birth of a baby girl and have decided that we should wait until after her first birthday before bringing her to Thailand. Secondly, my wife is awaiting the approval of her U.S. citizenship. So, at least for the next 6 months we will be staying here in the States and I will be drawing on memories and past experiences for my inspiration. Combining that with current events in the Kingdom I should have plenty to keep me busy writing and you all busy reading.
Let me close by saying that I am always no more than a comment or an email away if you have any questions or concerns or just want to say “Hi”. While I expect to be kept quite busy running the blog, I always try to answer all my personal emails and I will continue to do so. I am also open to ideas for posts so if there’s something you would like me to write about don’t hesitate to ask.
