Spring is in the air, and I’m in the mood for fellow blog love…today, I’d like to send a shout-out to the Londonist. As they themselves describe their site:
“Londonist is a website about our town and everything that happens in it. That means news, reviews and events; the history and future. We celebrate the quirks, eccentricities, hidden and surprising bits that make up the alternative side of the city.
Upbeat and eclectic, Londonist is created by an incredibly talented and diverse team of contributors who share a passion for the city with our readers. We’re a bunch of obsessives who live the city and share our best discoveries.”
This has been a valued go-to source for us in keeping up on all things here (in a city this big, it’s difficult to cover all bases even when you live here!) and provides gobs of Retweet-worthy material on a daily basis. The website has been recognized by the local media as a top blog, containing timely news stories, cultural events, and where to wine-n-dine. I personally enjoy the rather quirky photos-of-the-day that they’ll share, which give us snapshots of the miscellaneous minutes in the life.
If you’re moving to here from the U.S. or elsewhere outside the UK, following this blog (along with your trusty London Relocation Blog right here! Don’t forget about us!) will help you keep your thumb on the pulse of your new environs and continue to do so after you’ve relocated through us. Cheers!
