Stat-checking

Checked my Analytics stats for the first time in G-d-knows-how-many-weeks and realized how wholesome and boring the searches that lead people to my website are. Fully two-thirds of all the searches can be fairly coherently attributed to specific subjects of my posts (over a quarter of all searches are to…

Questions wanted

In the past, a 6-day interval between posts on this blog would invariably mean that I was on a trip to some fun and rewarding destination. At present, not so much. I still don’t have a writing angle that I want to be exploring in depth, and I’m increasingly lukewarm…

Slow weekend

    This sign at a nearby supermarket parking lot kinda symbolizes the speed of my movements this weekend. Aside from seeing friends and watching football on the telly, I devoted the large part of the last two days to cleaning up some loose ends in the Travelog (the most…

Happy blogger

Fellow UCF’er Shawn a couple of days ago posted seven very good tips for being a happy blogger. At first, I claimed in comments that I already follow all of his advice, but just a few days later I come to one of my periodic blogging crossroads, where I want…

Burlaki.com RSS feed

I know there is a handful of people out there who subscribe to my RSS feed via FeedBurner (which is where the “Subscribe” button on the navigation bar pointed to until today). FeedBurner was bought by Google some time ago, and they are gradually getting around to migrating their service…

A new look

Don’t worry, you’re in the right place. I decided to redecorate, is all. Comparatively loud colors and large fonts tired me after a while. So, I chose a more subdued look instead. Because the selected template was seriously different from the old one, it took me somewhat longer than expected…

Burlaki.com are happy to announce our newest feature: The very cool annotated World Map. Made possible by the excellent Flash tool by amMap.com, it puts every place in Europe that we have ever graced with our presence onto the interactive map and provides short capsules of visit context and timing…

On Travelog

As I have mentioned elsewhere, for the last few weeks I have been chipping away at our old travel diaries, transcribing the observations about sights, museums, restaurants and hotels into Travelog entries. To my own surprise, I’m actually finished with that now. While I have what I think is a…

Find your answers here

I don’t get hit by too many weird search queries – I guess my Google rank is not high enough to push me near the top of the results for your basic cuckoo searches. But checking my Google Analytics stats the other day I came across this gem that apparently…

I’m gonna be on TV

Ok, not really. But a recent comment on my smoking in Canary Wharf illustration suggests that a French TV channel may be interested in using my photos from that post for their program. I honestly do not know how any of those photos could be very much useful for a…

Pictures from Paris

A small collection of photographs taken on our recent getaway to Paris can be found here or via the links on the navigation bar. We only brought our small pocketcam with us, so the quality of some shots is a notch below than usual, but we figured we’d share them…
