Happy New Year!!!

By Nomadic Matt | Published January 5th, 2009

Happy New Year!!! Hope everyone had a wonderful new year wherever you were. It was a great time here in Thailand. I had meant to post more during the holidays, but the internet connection where I was was very slow and very expensive. So, it’s been pretty quiet here at Nomadic Matt. But this year will bring many changes to this site:

  • I want to have more guest posts on this site. If you are interested in writing a guest post, please send me an e-mail.
  • I have changed the banner again. I’m digging the green/black theme. Thoughts?
  • The photo page will move from its current form to an interactive flash map within a few months. I am just looking for a designer to do it. You’ll be able to click on a country and see the photos from that country. If you are a programmer and can help me out, please send an e-mail.
  • The big shift will be that this site will be connected with my other site about how to travel the world. This site will be the updated/blog portion of the other site. The URLs will stay the same. The biggest change for Nomadic Matt will be that the travel tips page will now connect to the other site.

I’m looking to develop this site a bit to be a more multi-author blog than just about me, though I plan to be the main author. I’d like 1 guest blog a week. So if you are interested, please shoot me an e-mail.

Happy 2009 and regular postings will begin again on Tuesday.

Happy New Year Matt..Hope u had a great time ..

Happy new year. I liked your old banner, but this works better. The combination of the green picture with the grey navigation bar and the black background looks great. Cleaner.

Good idea to connect your two most popular sites.

Hi Matt,

This is my first time to your site. Love to just dive into the Archives and see what other great gems you have.

Another happy subscriber.
