A new year brings new things for everyone. For many it can mean new jobs or new homes...perhaps a new city. But even if you're staying firmly put in 2013 you may have made resolutions to explore your own backyard a bit more or to take up underwater zumba or something equally nuts that you will almost certainly have abandonned by mid-February.
But should you need just a wee bit of inspiration for the year ahead - particularly if you live in and around London - there's shiny new site just waiting for you. TownFish - which calls itself a 'social discovery network' (we're talking more than just your average website here, people) - launched just before Christmas last year, and is dedicated to providing you with new ideas, new entertainment and even new people to hang out with. The site also boasts an excellent blog, featuring the writing of some of the very finest London bloggers (*ahem*). Yes, I'm delighted to have been asked to contribute to this blog, and to be part of this cool new site.
My first article up on the site is for those brave people who are seeking a new home in London in the coming months; the distillation of my own painful experience of the London rental market. Read it here and learn from my mistakes! Or don't come crying to me when that 'split-level mezzanine bedroom' you read about in the particulars of your potential dream home turns out to be a cupboard with a built-in bunk bed. You have been warned...
So Londoners, go TownFish-ing and catch yourselves some ideas for a thoroughly new and exciting 2013!
