  1. Hello !
    Greetings ! Hope you are doing well 
    My name is Siddharth and I’m a business student from the U.K. I am currently pursuing an M.B.A (Information Management) from the University of Wales, Lampeter and have chosen blog based marketing as my dissertation topic. More specifically, my research aims to investigate the effectiveness of blog based marketing to small businesses. Through this study I intend to investigate the perception, attitude, and motivation of corporate / business bloggers that drive individuals /businesses to incorporate blogs as a marketing tool. In order to accomplish the same, I need to survey and conduct interviews with a number of business bloggers who would be willing to take part in this study. I have read your posts and updates on your blog https://littlelondonobservationist.wordpress.com/ , and am optimistic that you would be able to provide valuable insights into the area of business blogging. I am planning to conduct interviews by e-mail or phone sometime in this month (i.e. December 09). Therefore, I request you to take a part in this project and provide your valuable insight to this study.
    I would appreciate if you could participate in a survey that I have created for this study:-

    All participants would have full access to my research, all undertakings with respect to confidentiality/ anonymity would be adhered to.
    Looking forward for your reply.

  3. Hi, great blog! Like you I’m also an expat. Originally from Brazil living in London for nearly 10 years…I have a similar blog about London life called ‘Adventures of Brazilian girl in London’ hope you can check it out…

  4. This is very encouraging news to Canadians thinking about moving to the “mother land”. I moved in 2007, too. But to Asia, to teach ESL. And I said to myself, if I ever live outside of Canada again, the most exotic place I’d go is England.

  5. Hi, Just stumbled across your blog. I’m Canadian and I’ve been living in London since last summer. To be honest, I’ve been getting quite homesick recently and I’ve been thinking of returning home. I think your blog will help me discover things that I don’t know about London!
