"I was wondering if you could email me and just tell me a little about how you got started in Korea and what challenges you faced making new friends and getting established there."
This entire blog, especially, the earlier ones deal with that...well, sorta.
I'll admit I did start this blog six years after I got there. There aren't any "well, here I am in South Korea!" posts. However, there are ones that talk about moving, living there and my experiences. Also, there are a ton of other K-blogs where people are talking about moving there and adjusting to life in South Korea.
I answer specific questions but not general questions. Also, this blog IS a broad overview and it touches on many subjects. Any I didn't write about? I probably didn't want to make that part of my life public and, in terms of topics, there are a few glaring omissions.
Take some time to run a few searches, click around and read what's already been written. There is also just the feeling you've not read much I've written yet. (I just ran a couple of searches to make sure posts come up, they do. There is a search panel on the sidebar which allows you to run searches of my blog only. I do try to make it easy. Also, you should probably start with the podcast I did with another K-blogger in 2006.)
After that, ask me questions.
Good luck. Sphere: Related Content
