New month, new challenge! This is London Baby writing from Scotland!
That’s London Baby is now a bit over a month old and I am still very exciting about it! I would like to post a bit more often, but I realised that writing takes more time than thought, but I still want to put on good quality 🙂
As most newbies probably, I am keeping a keen eye on the statistics of the site. My favourite is the map of the world – below a snapshot of my world map since the start of the blog:
I am happy to announce that this blog has now a sibling on Facebook:
Next to featuring the blogposts, I aim to share up-to-date links from other great London resource, so this page can be the start for all types of explorations and a place to share tips!
Hope you find one or the other inspiration for your Easter weekend there!
In my first real blog post, I want to go back in the past to give you a bit more background on how I came to discover London and how all the tips and tiny pieces of wisdom I hope to share on this blog in the future came into existence.
Contrary to what I aim to do with this blog, this post will not contain many specific tips on any London Areas, so you might want to skip directly to the next post that contains actual tips on how you can get started on exploring London by foot
As a disclaimer- I am not a trained tour guide and I have followed no classes, courses or any of the like. I am not even a historian (I still mess up all the English Kings when on walks). I am just a hobby explorer.
My walking story
Hello and thanks for having a look at my blog!
I have been thinking of blogging about my London discoveries for a long time now, and I am very excited and a bit scared as well- after all, there are so many good sites out there, so what can I add? Especially when doing this only in my spare free time without any previous experience in blogging before?
The intention of this blog is basically to take you on my London discoveries, be it by Foot, Bike, Bus, etc. It’s an extension of what I tend to do with my friends or visitors “offline”, many of which have been more or less voluntarily dragged around the most obscure places of London with me constantly talking about how interesting or exciting this or that place is….(by the way, thanks to all of you for bearing with me).
Its sharing my love and enthusiasm for this great city and hoping a bit of that is transported to you.
In my head there is all the plans of posts to come, in 4 years here I have been blessed to be able to see a few things, to go on countless walks and treasure hunts etc. etc.
I hope it will all work out. Until then, thanks for reading, enjoy and let me know how you like it….
