expanding the parameters of finnishness

a new beginning

Alrighty. It is time to take finnophile online. With the ever increasing bombardment of spam and my general eschewal of sending out bulk emails with any kind of regularity, it is time to leave the stone age of technology behind.

It’s interesting; I have always considered myself an early-adopter when it came to newfangled technology, yet i am only commencing my ’blogging career’ in mid-2006, some three years after its entrance on the mainstage. Apropos perhaps, as I still also purchase CDs and string cable around the house to get the Net to follow me around.

The real reason for the transition is simple: I want to share the world of Finnishness with you on a daily basis, not weekly or bi-monthly or whatever. There are always exciting stories to tell, links to forward and pictures to post. The world needs a dose of Finnishness more often than finnophile could provide via email. This will allow y’all to check in more often, spread the word more easily and rid of your inbox of at least one bulk-mail…although I will still fire off the occasional group-email with event annoucements and the like.

There will be lots of interesting (i hope) stuff here, both Finn and non-Finn so you are encouraged to invite others to have a peek. Ok, let’s see how this posting thing works..

Cheers, Markus
