Welcome back, dear readers! It has been quite a while! After a nice, long, relaxing 3 month vacation in the Philippines, it was extremely hard to motivate myself to get back to blogging upon our return to Oman in early September. Blogging is awesome and has provided us with many blessed opportunities including meeting some fascinating people here.Unfortunately, this blog has also brought a lot of unwanted attention over the years and so I had to give it some serious thought as to whether I should continue blogging at all. Then there was the matter of my space upgrade (50GB) running out at the end of the summer. Because I have 32.4 GB of material on this blog (mostly taken up with pictures), I had to decide whether I was willing to pay another $90 US (around 35 OR) for another year space upgrade. Thanks for all the emails from readers/friends checking in on me to see if all is okay. Life is great, thanks for asking!
It’s nice that Freddy is still going strong on his blog, Muscat Mutterings, which continues to be one of my main sources of “What’s Happening in Oman”. “Wanda in Oman” has an interesting new blog (that I am subscribed to) that I recommend checking out (titled “Oman? Oh My!!). Muscat Moms has proven itself to be a great resource as well. My wife joined it months ago and I always notice handy tips on life in Oman. Not only does it contain lots of helpful info for anyone who is a parent in Oman; it’s also a great source for buying and selling things. They have over 3,000 members (closed group you must join on facebook) and a number of them are gents as well! 😉 (Feel free to let us know of other blogs of websites that you feel are great sources of info here in Oman in the comment section if you know of others.)
After attending a friend’s art exhibition last night in Muttrah, (will post about that soon!) I have been persuaded to start this puppy back up. My deepest apologies for letting the comments go unanswered for so many months and for not being more faithful in answering so many emails. I will slowly try to answer them one by one over the next few weeks.
Once again, welcome back, dear readers! 🙂
