Very sensible except for the TAN elimination. The author probably thinks cheques are the only way.

we get free coffee, and carbonated drinks. Other companies I have visited have the same deal, is this not the norm here then?

For those of you who don't already know it (especially if you're a wannabe hipster in Berlin), this blog should make you piss your pants.

Here is the two I read...from local girls in Munich. There is another one called American Girls are Easy. (not local and not expats) It is written about girls in their 20's from Las Vegas and their travels. A hoot!

Who can tell me about the different profiles you can comment under.

post-33471-12958134678503.jpg

I think Google-konto and AIM are the only ones I know. Although I use Google mainly for facebook and other rubbish, I would not like to use it to comment on blogs. If you choose some of the above, are you leaving yourself open to spam?

I have just commented for the first time and chose anonymous and just signed my name under the comment.

Edit.

and to remain on topic: The blog I commented on - cause I lurve the illustrations. It is our very own Woanders.

Oooh post edit: He just posted the link to the English pages.

You usually use the one your own blog is attached to so it links to you automatically. If you don't have a blog but have a gmail account or are registered at google in some other way it's fine to use the Google option. You won't get spammed because the e mail address you enter is not displayed. Only the blog owner can see it. It's also just fine to use the Anonymous choice but it's nice to sign your name or a pseudonym within the comment (as I see you did) so the blogger can respond to your comment if she/he chooses.

Aw, thanks Orla :) Personally I wouldn't read either if I wasn't writing them, but yes, you can just look at the pictures. While the English one avoids any need to untangle the germanish stuff, it is the one read by family (they claim). So it always has the potential to be slightly less true. That's the price paid for relative coherency.

Well this post seemed to go down well. That is when I came across your blog for the first time. You have a way with words. I find myself smiling as I read what you have written. Your illustrations are just an added (big-time) bonus.

Being in Berlin, I only read Berlin expat blogs like http://dunkinberliner.blogspot.com/ or http://fleetingreams.blogspot.com/

Maybe someone suggested it already but there's also a selection of German expat blogs here

We should have a ForeignBloggers_in_Germany party some time.

We have been doing this for about six years now, as the Whiny Expat Bloggers Meet-Up (only as whiny as you want it to be - most of us like it here). Check the meetup board and see if you'd be interested.

By the way, I'm half of the Regensblog. Another few good ones are Heidelbergerin, Letters Home to You and Deutschland über Elvis.

Not meaning to rain on anyone's parade, but don't we have enough newbie expats sprouting blogs like they're the first Americans (they're usually Americans) to land in Germany? Personal observations and experiences are the stuff of blogs. Go for it. But please stop the oblivious generalizations about the entire county ... like there's no vanilla extract in Germany. Have you looked all over Germany? No Valentine's Day cards ... please!
