Cultural Associative Dissonance Disorder

We started Kuwait FTW with 2 primary intents:

- Provide a way for family and friends to keep up with our lives so we didn't have to send out mass emails (or join demonic websites such as Facebook).
- Record our experiences working as contractors in Kuwait for others who might benefit from the knowledge.

Since we've been here now 2 1/2 years, it seems most of our recent posts are more about our travels outside of Kuwait than anything to do with actually living here. This is natural I'm sure as we've grown so used to it that nothing really seems unusual and there are no really new experiences to relate. It's not that we don't like it, it's just not new anymore.

Enter the new blog: Cultural Associative Dissonance Disorder

The URL is http://jkcadd.blogspot.com/

This will be primarily a travel blog, though it's generic enough I think we'll transition everything not specifically about Kuwait to it. I've copied over all of our trip posts from the past couple of years and will new travel posts will go there. So feel free to bookmark or subscribe to the RSS feed if you want to keep up with us.

Eventually, we will phase out the Kuwait FTW site completely when we leave. We haven't decided whether or not to create a new on for each new country we end up living in, but we'll figure that out later.

I don't get it. Why do you need a new blog. Just rename this one if you don't want it to be just about Kuwait (which it isn't anyway). I don't want yet another bookmark for another blog for the same person. Sorry. Bitchy, I know. Wouldn't it just make sense to keep the same blog address. Forever I can go through it and read posts I missed years from now.
