Blogging Again?

What’s this, a bunch of new posts that relate to Tokyo/Japan on the site? Are you blogging regularly about that stuff again?

Consider this a result of me spending the weekend digging into the archives, going through hundreds (thousands, really) of posts, and just kinda wanting to do a bit of it again.

Let’s call it nostalgia blogging, maybe?

I see it more as a sort of guest blogging exercise, think “Shark Week.” One of the many surprises I discovered on the site was that I had actually initiated a couple of guest blogging stints on the site back in 2003 — my very good friend (and event-producing partner, as we produced a bunch of design exhibitions during “Swedish Style” in Tokyo together) Jesper Larsson had done a bunch of posts under the “Next Century Modern Blog” banner (Next Century Modern was his production company at the time — and you gotta love that he created some ending credits when they closed shop).

So yeah, it’s just that. Probably.
