It’s Monday April 9th – Easter Monday, in fact – and the rain is pouring. My good wife Ashley and I have been talking about starting a Brighton blog for a good while. Ninety percent of my professional life is blogging and writing columns, and Ashley has been maintaining a personal blog for more years than I care to recall, so it seems like a natural next step to start blogging about the city in which we both reside and love – Brighton.
On Brightonist we’ll be writing about the many restaurants we eat in, events we attend, shows we watch and other activities we undertake, all well illustrated through Ashley’s photography (and hopefully mine when I get my bloody camera fixed).
For such a vibrant, digitally-savvy city Brighton seems to be spectacularly under-represented in the blogosphere, and we hope our modest contribution can help address that balance.
Things we’re looking forward to doing:
And things we’ve done recently:
Lunch at an “American diner ” was hilariously full of all the most unhealthy foods, plus requisite pics of Marilyn /Elvis etc. Nice.
